Hey, I used to play the original SF2 on amiga long time ago. Friend recently asked me to download GGPO for 3rd strike and now I’ve finally bought SF4.
I’ve played about 600 fights online now using mostly Ryu, but after trying out all the characters Dhalsim felt best for me.
I don’t know if I should post these questions in Saiyko Dojo or here (move if necessary).
-Should I ever use mummy/spear as attack, or only to dodge projectiles/knock out the opponent?
-Why do some pros (e.g. Iyo) use Yoga Blast sometimes, if back+HK & back+MP are better antiair options?
-What is generally the best thing to do when I get cornered with no super/ultra? Teleporting doesn’t seem to be a good idea.
-Why is that most of the Dhalsim players do back+HP (air), back+MK, light Yoga flame combo, when back+HK (air), back+HP, light Yoga flame does more damage and is easier to do?
-What is the best strategy against Blankas that do nothing but rolling attacks, and Vegas that stay in the air and use special attacks? From those 600 fights I’ve honestly lost ~95% of the fights VS Blanka/Vega.
-What makes Dhalsim 7:3 overdog against Guile? I lose a lot against Guile players, but I can beat most of the Chun/Balrog/Viper players that I’m supposed to be underdog against. Some of these are way better players than me.
Any help would be highly appreciated. I’m playing against noobs like myself (Championship G2 / player matches)
