I’ve played CvS2 in the past, but merely as a passing time. However, now I’d like to get into it more seriously. Nevertheless, my first hurdle seems to be choosing and creating a team in which I would like to fully learn and explore. After viewing many tier threads, reading a few topics, etc. I mostly narrowed it down to two main characters: Blanka and Sagat with C/A-groove. However, the last pic is something which I, quite honestly, have no expertise in deciding.
I am struggling to decide whether to pic Guile or Honda (maybe a Rolento). But focusing more on those two optional characters presented, which one should I choose with the two team members I have already chosen? I would like the character to round the combination up nicely, make for a diverse and possible hard match-up on the opponent (ala. mix of various play styles with characters, flexibility, etc.). In addition, if not understood already, I’d like my team to be adaptable in the sense that regardless of almost any team my opponent would make, which character would help to decrease the chance of that negatively affecting me in all of the possible match-up options? I am very flexible as a player and could adapt to playing any style, so that is no problem.
And lastly, when you respond it would be very helpful if you could explain your reasoning and perhaps give some insight into the best way (generally) to play this team combination, and what team specific skills I should start honing the most when first picking this team up.
Thanks for the help.
EDIT: Changed to C/A as I’m unsure with Guile or Honda if the A might allow for more versitility, when teamed with Sagat/Blanka A.
