Hi guys i see very little discussion on matchups so i guess ill be the one to start it ill start with my opinion scorps toughest matchups based on playing others with skill with chosen character. also any input on these matchups would be greatly appreciated if u find these aren’t working or something was wrong PM me and i’ll try and message some people for some games and their strategies to better improve on the thread thanks or viewing., feel free to post if you want.
Kung Lao: from what i have experienced never jump in on lao its way safer to just dash block your way in and soldier out the damage. dive kick can utterly ruin your day but since the air throw beats it if u can consistently counter it u can take out one his best tools. up close lao’s safe blockstrings can cause you a ton of chip but thats why you have ex spear which has one hit of armor doing this can net you an easy 35% combo. always expect a kung lao player to abuse the hell out of dive kicks, spin, and 1,1,2,1 its just gonna happen and it your job to counter it and make him pay for it.
also spin is punishable please make him pay for it cause if you don’t they will start to use it unmercifully and that easily leads into jump in dive kick-dash-1-ex hat- jump in FP-ex dive kick herp derp and you just dont want that. Your best tools to me in this matchup will be your FP.FP,-spear–>BP-FP cancel into teleport which grants you a free jump in and as a result more pressure. remember your overheads are <-FP and ->FK if u get a chance make sure they learn not to low block and when you see they have a high tendency to high block use your -> Bk-spear for a good 30 to 35% combo. btw teleport is not your friend on this matchup
