i’m not going to lie: i suck at wake-up games. it’s by-far the weakest part of my game and i’m completely lost on the exact mechanics of how it works. here are some things i’m lost on:
-ryu vs. ryu, i’m otg (on the ground). my opponent does a meaty c.mk and i srk. his c.mk beats my srk. i try to mimic the same thing and i get beat by srk. will meaty attacks always beat wake-ups?
-same match-up. i’m otg. my opponent does a srk, i do srk, i get beat. i try to mimic the same thing when he’s otg and i get beat.
-i’m ryu and my opponent is dictator. he hits me into a combo and finishes with scissor kicks. i tech otg and see him in the air. i do srk and his j.fp beats my srk, and it seems my srk never even came out.
-opponent is otg. i walk up to throw and my opponent dashes back. my throw whiffs. again, i try the same tactic against him and i get thrown.
-i walk up to opponent to throw and my throw gets beaten by a c.jab into a combo.
am i just too slow with my inputs and therefore getting beat? it seems like every time i try to do anything that’s involving otg, i’m on the losing side, and i cannot for the life of me figure it out. any help would be appreciated.
