I’ve been regularly playing a Ryu player in endless lately and I’ve noticed he has an uncanny habit of successfully shoryukening all of my tick throw/frame traps attempts, however whenever I attempt to exploit this and bait one of these shoryukens he never does them. As an Akuma player this puts the hurt on me hard, he’s not exactly a character built for eating many moves.
I don’t really suffer the problem against anyone else I’ve played but this one guy, I can usually bait people
and punish them pretty hard.
Any idea what this guy could be doing? Is there something to it or is he just being incredibly random and I’m being incredibly unlucky?
I feel like he’s really limiting my offensive options because his defense is pretty solid so the only time I can do any consistent damage against him is punishing his whiffed footsies, which he doesn’t like to throw out that often anyway.
My setups aren’t any different, it’s simply just a case of me not throwing out that cr.strong frame trap most of the time. When I throw it out it eats a shoryuken, when I don’t he does nothing.
