Any tips on playing Ryu vs. Birdie? Can this be the thread for tips on this matchup? Later.
Lol your profile pics suggests you may be a Birdie spy?
Preferably you want to be at close range on the offensive. Being mid range means you need to play a very very reactive game to Birdie’s numerous options, also his buttons are damn damn good. MK, cr MK, HP. You dont really want to be trading with him.
Dont respect his wake up. Always pressure unless he has CA.
Chain and the hop grab will beat your fireball clean (so dont throw too often). Try and jump in the former and neutral jump the latter with a good combo.
Keep a DP on lock and zone until you get a knock down and can go in
