I’m still contemplating how I feel on this match up. I tend to either stomp it, or get stomped in ranked.
But there are two things in particular that helped me a lot when I started doing them.
1- charge your v-skill. you can backdash and charge easily vs Gief. He is so slow he can rarely punish you for this. I then use V-skill to whiff punish his longer startup normals in the footsie game. So like his big armored HP, sweep, RH, etc. Or I look to poke a limb and cancel into v-skill to get out of the corner. anytime they get hit by it, I just charge it again, so I always have it.
2 - use her air target combo. A lot of Gief’s like to armor through her jump ins. This won’t net as much damage as a real jump in combo, but the second hit of the target combo will knock him down so you can get some oki.
VS Rashid… I dunno yet at all, I hate this match up. I just try to use my meter for ex Ryo so I can flip through fireballs reliably. That’s sort of all I got so far on him.
