I’ve never really made a thread, so I thought I’d maybe start a thread where people can gain insight on picking alternate characters. This is all based on who they are originally using, and of course I hope for some input on other characters as my knowledge is limited. (Hopefully this is a useful topic, I really couldn’t think of anything else to discuss!).
Cammy - Ryu
Cammy’s worst matchups include the turtles, and these range from Honda, Guile, Dee-Jay (though much less), Chun-Li, Ryu, Ken, and Sagat. Ryu is Honda’s worst match by default, and he’s also able to best Guile in a fireball war. He is also Dee-Jay’s worst matchup, and he can hold his own against Chun-Li and Sagat. Zangief is a problem for Cammy based strictly on stats and too many exchanging hits, but Ryu has the perfect tools to zone 'Gief. You still have a problem facing Vega and Blanka, but superior timing and reflexes on the Front Kick with Cammy can beat them. I’m uncertain what the matchups are against Blanka and Vega, but I have serious problems with Blanka’s jumping and Vega’s walldives. Its strictly my lack of having faster reflexes, so that’s something I’m working on. Same with Dictator - I know how to play that matchup but my fear of the fast headstomp makes me play defense too much.
