i play a pretty scrubby dudley and i come here for some advice
my main problem is that when i want to get in close to my opponent, i cant seem to hold my own ground against them. i’m horrible at footsies so i always end up trying to jump in on them. and whether it be empty jump ins with option select parrying/ chunky jump ins i always end up eating an anti air/low forward/ parry-> throw. i try to mix it up by throwing when i land/ ssb when i land/ low short when i land/ jump straight up again when i land? lol… but shit- am i just being too damn predictable?
recently i’ve been trying not to jump in so much to get in close… but like i said i’m horrible at playing footsies. my ground game… i’ll usually try to stay in range and get a low tech in so i can counter with ex machinegun… but eh… most of the time i get so focused on getting that tech in that i’ll start fucking up and getting thrown/ eating high attacks cause all i’m doing is thinking about that low tech. i dunno… sometimes i think the reason i jump in so much is because i feel so helpless on the ground (mainly vs ken and chun). i feel like they can pressure me so much with low forward and dudley doesnt really have anything to counter/ match it. i fucking hate low forwards.
at other times i feel like im just totally being outplayed by my opponent. i wont be able to get any techs on him to counter… i cant seem to get in close with duck ins without being pushed back by tech throws… then i’ll start eating low forwards into super cause i’ll be throwing out low mps too much… get high/low teched into super for free all day :[ not sure how i can get in close without being too predictable…
any advice/comments/flames are appreciated.
