I think it is great that Adon is getting a lot of attention after GamerBee’s performance @ Evo. Many of the main posters in the sub-forum have said for a while that Adon is a strong character.
As many of the Adon players will find out and many other “veteran” Adon players know too well, trying to replicate GamerBe’s Adon will be very difficult and frustrating. (we?ve watched him for months now) Adon’s main “flaw” is that to play him at a high level and to be competitive you have really know his character and the game engine itself.
Characters like Rog, Blanka, Guile, Honda, can blast through many characters at moderate levels of play due to the strengths built in to their characters. However, Adon is not this way.
These are some of the advanced thinking GamerBee had to do to be competitive. Many of the techniques take incredible timing and placement.
- Ambiguous Cross.- Ups
- Neutral Safe Jumps
- Safe Jump > Option Select RJ
- IAJK> Combo
- Option select throw tech/ lk combo starter.
I am all for the new interest in Adon, I just don’t want people to think that it is going to “easy” to play him. It takes a lot of work; he is not easy to play. GamerBee deserves a huge amount of Respect for playing as well.
Have fun learning/ playing Adon. We are all here to help each other out. Adon will take a lot of practice. Just be aware of what you are in for. :razzy:
