okay well I happen to main gouken, and imo he doesn’t have a reliable wakeup option, and its hard for him to get out of rushdown situations.
so heres what happened, I was playing against a VERY good seth player, and well to put it bluntly… I push a button, I die…
he was constantly rushdowning me, and anytime I pushed CROUCHING LIGHT PUNCH just so I’d get out of what seemed like an endless block stream, I suddenly lose what seems like 40% of my health. Its like im playing against a computer, he does every single combo flawlessly, and if I just stay blocking all the time, he somehow knows when I intend to do that and just grabs me with his command grab. its like he could read my mind, and I rarely come across these players, but how the heck does one get out of a situation like that? I watch the pros play, and they never seem to get in that situation cause my guess is they are to scared to rush down on that level.
im stumped, I don’t know how to get out of situations like that, I press one button, I die. reminds me of playing Killer instinct back in the day against Eyedol
