I have recently made my not-so-triumphant return to the SF series (basically a noob) and have been pulling my hair out trying to get the hang of Dhalsim, but I really want to play him. I could use some help with a few stupid things I suck at:
Ultra - Every time I want to Ultra someone, I end up teleporting back and forth. This is often quite humorous to my friends, but it ends up with someone’s fist in Dhalsim’s face and a loss. Obviously, the teleport motion is kind of inherently contained within the Ultra motion, but I’ve tried slowing it down and still can’t pull it off consistently in the heat of battle. Any tips?
AntiAir - I find that his b.HK often comes out too slowly to counter a jumper, and when it hits, it also often simply trades with my opponent. I’ve checked out the big thread on when to use each move against which player but A) that’s far too much for me to memorize and B) I’m trying to just speak generally. Perhaps I’m not using enough b.MP?
Is Dhalsim at a natural disadvantage when used online (I often play the PC version)? It often feels like he simply can’t block/antiair/punish fast enough. Is this due to lag or my delusions? I don’t feel this way playing my friends on xBox.
