Secondary Character?

guile

#1

So the more and more I play, the more I realize just how bad some matches are for Guile, yes there is the fact of learning the matches, but besides doing that, which I have tried countless times, who do you guys think would be a good secondary character to go with Guile?


#2

Fei Long.

He’s the exact opposite of everything Guile is. (well, in AE that is).
Non charge, pure rushdown, counterhitting, massive damage character.


#3

Rufus: because his dive kick mix-ups and rush down are really frightening when he gets in, plus he has alot of health and his ultras have multiple setups.


#4

Like Guile, he also has very low stun.


#5

I agree with the Fei Long proposition. I know a few of the euro ranked dudes that play good Dhalsims, so i counter pick them with Fei. Even if i lose the match is much less frustrating than with Guile.


#6

Feilong doesn’t have a bad matchup in AE.


#7

That’s 3 to 1. Rufus out, Fei Long in.


#8

i use balrog, he beats the Button pressers that Guiles randomly lose to.


#9

i like 2 use bison for some reason.


#10

trying to find another alt. i know Warahk has chosen Sagat. Im thinking about Fei long, sagat perhaps. I like Ken as well… any thoughts?


#11

fei is nice and a good change of pace from guile. when i’m tired of hearing SONIC BOOM SONIC BOOM i go to fei.


#12

U want to look at what bad matchups best compliment his
Example:
Viper.


#13

i’ve tried using as an alt:

abel, viper, ibuki, cody, chun, dudley, and ryu.

of them, i like abel the most (he was actually my first main), but really, i feel like abel and guile both suffer from similar weaknesses: bad against vortex characters. so i’ve been thinking: “Who is good against vortex characters?” Viper does well, but her execution barrier is a little overwhelming…

anyone know another answer? dictator?


#14

I’ve been poking around with Guile to be a possible second to my T. Hawk. Don’t count our the grapplers. They want to be right in the opponent’s face, a nice change from Guile’s typical style.


#15

I moved from Akuma to Guile but I only play Guile in ranked matches. I try other characters but Guile fits me nicely so I always end up picking him exclusively. When I’m tired hearing sonic boom, I play FIFA 12 :slight_smile:


#16

I intially started with Bison and had Guile as a secondary now use them both equally. However if you want someone to cover his weaknesses go for Fei long/Viper how ever they are both pretty difficult to use. I would recommend Bison as I think he complements Guile pretty well.


#17

Really just chose who you want… it’s not like you are going to win every game anyway.


#18

I recently started learning some Cammy as my friend told me he thinks I’m secretly a decent Cammy player. I’m told that my Guile is too rigid and predictable so learning a new character for me is for learning how to be mobile, poking/counter-poking, and basically just how to play offense effectively. Turns out Cammy is a pretty easy transition and it seems to be helping my Guile get off down-back. I now alternate between them… play Cammy to loosen up before going back to Guile main.


#19

"Guile is to predictable."
Cammy = cannon strike, hit hit, spiral arrow. cannon strike, hit hit, spiral arrow. stun. repeat. win


#20

I think your secondary character should be tiger, tiger, tiger.

So I was like… tiger, tiger, tiger… and that’s the last I heard of that guy.
