New here, but been lurking for years. I’m not sure if this new thread is even allowed (I will suppose it is, being a forum after all)
First off, as a sf player since sf 1, and all throughout sf 4, I have never main’d a character as hard to learn as fang. His charge moves are unorthodox (down, up + p for a horizontally traveling poison ball?, weird), but that’s exactly what interests me about him. While I do come from a charge character background (I used to main blanka) he still feels totally new. I’ve been able to zone out and keep away some beginner players but I’ve been losing a lot to more experienced players online which is a normal and expected part of the process of learning a new character in fighting games.
I must say though, once you get good at creating poison ball walls and mixing it up with ground poison and v skill, you realize you can make your opponent play sloppy because if he loses his composure and starts to panic, his inputs and timing will be off. He is a mix of blanka, balrog and dhalsim which is very exotic and unusual if you ask me. One of the things I like most about him is playing footsie’s and poking people with his awkward normals.
