So I obviously main Dhalsim and I USED to think Honda’s were for the most part free. My friend mains Honda and has found 2 things that just ruin my game vs Honda.
The first being that Honda’s jump in normals beat Sim’s standing Roundhouse (I used to use this to keep Honda extra far away and make him need 2 jump ins just to get to me. Now I can only anti-air him in back+roundhouse range and have to let him in closer to where one whiffed AA can mean half my life with how much damage Honda does).
The second being that Honda can full screen headbutt on reaction to a fireball (and it’s super slow recovery) and it will trade in Honda’s favor (the headbutt’s invincibility goes through the fireball and the fireball hits him when he bounces off me after the headbutt).
These 2 things have absolutely ruined my game against Honda when people know about these tactics. Can anyone give me some tips I might be missing in the Honda matchup? Thanks.
