Fairly surprised this wasn’t made yet.
Since we’re going for individual threads until some messiah creates our commandments, I’m starting the one we all hate.
I have next to no experience v. a good rufus, but I have started playing with a local player who knows his shit. So I don’t know if what I have to offer is because of the player or the char, but I guess that’s what forums are for so w/e.
I’ve found I use backdash in this match more than any other. Out of block messiah or galactic, it’s pretty good, and while you can get punished with another galatic or messiah if you aren’t constantly doing it they’ll probably stick to advancing with a jump-in, dive kick, snake strick to guess, or just something generally safer. Back dashing off of AA resets are good too, jump happy Rufus’ can get punished by super if they jump in after doing this.
No dumb fires, wakeup supers or ultras when he’s got stock because it’s free ex messiah.
That’s all I got. like I said I’m still lost so please pick my shit apart.
edit: clutch slides under crossup dive kicks.
