Shotos vs. Grapplers


Love Zangief and perhaps I just lack the patience to play a grappler in general… but any other grapplers, in your experience, have an easier time closing the gap on shotos playing lame?



Mika’s sweep can advance her position while dodging fireballs at the same time

Alex has some moves that can help him advance while dodging or absorbing fireballs as well

Laura can potentially move behind her own fireball in order to get in, but its range is generally more limited


To answer your question. Every other grappler can get in MUCH better than Gief can.
