I played third strike quite a bit, I never took it very seriously I just played casuals against my friends. This year for SSIV I’m going to evo for the experience. I have some questions related to Rush-down characters, specifically Ibuki:
I’ve read that rush down characters don’t really use footsies. I have general thoughts about it, but I’d like it if a seasoned vet could explain it.
If you don’t use footsies, what tools do you use to get in for those big combos?
Say you knockdown a shoto as Ibuki, what are you thinking about in regards to wake up?
How important is frame data? Should I be studying it extensively right now?
If you can give me any advice on Ibuki, or even general advice I’d appreciate it. Thanks.
