Just got the vids, let’s see…
0:21- you block a Rolento patriot circle, hesitate, then just low fierce. You should have done s.fierce xx level 1 high tiger. At the very least, do a roundhouse tiger knee to knock Rolento down and get yourself out of the corner.
0:34- you roll uppercut. Do I hear somebody yelling “what a fag”? :lol: Anyway, Sagat can punish tech rolls after a fierce uppercut with an immediate dash, walk forward a little bit, standing fierce xx high tiger super. Always dash after fierce DPs anyway since that’s how all of Sagat’s set ups start.
0:49- you land a jumping roundhouse with meter and… do nothing. There is no reason to NOT attack after a jumpin. Rolento should be dead already.
1:52- you do low jab, low fierce xx double reppuken with Geese. This is never a good thing, and there’s a huge gap there for you to get killed in. If you’re going to do a guard pattern like that, do strong reppuken instead. It actually combos. If you’re trying to chip somebody to death, combo into a hcb+k.
2:26- you land a Geese cross up on Sakura with meter, and instead opt to do a guard crush pattern. When doing a jump in, always assume it’s going to hit and prepare to do your most damaging combo. Once you realize it’s blocked, THEN you shift your attention to doing guard damage or mix ups.
3:35- your Blanka dashes right into his his opponent’s face and rolls. Was that a failed attempt at an RC elec? If so, fine. Otherwise, that was a really horrible idea.
3:43- his Blanka rolls at you, you try to punish with low short and mess up, he CCs. Now, aside from the fact that you messed up punishing Blanka’s roll, AND the fact that he messed up timing the CC to punish your low short, you could have cancelled your low short into a KKK backhop out of there after the CC flash. It’s a vital tool for Blanka, particularly against Sakura, so get into the habit of doing it.
3:46- you’re blocking a Blanka CC, then suddenly you stand up and get hit by a slide. What was that? Were you trying to AC? General rule of thumb: don’t AC customs with Blanka. Chances are your AC is going to get beat clean.
3:57- you cross up his Blanka, hit a low short… then immediately jump in again. This time, he clearly whiffs a standing fierce so your jump in hits, but you do another low short… into nothing. Again, it looks like your jumping with the intention of pressuring instead of doing actual damage. Both of those instances should have resulted in a win from you.
4:09- REALLY bad time to slide there. You were obviously too close. Luckily, your opponent decides not to punish it.
General: your Sagat is jiggling at like 3/4ths screen away. There’s no real point in doing that. Sagat is at his best at half screen distance, where he’s in range to counter everything you could possibly do.
Chill out on the Geese fireballs, especially after low forwards and roundhouses. They’re not safe.
Learn low short, standing jab xx super with Blanka, and ALWAYS be looking for it. C-Blanka doesn’t get many chances to land his supers. Take what you can. Oh, and you’re not using his KKK hop back nearly enough. That’s the move that originally put him into top tier status.
