I’ve been using Dhalsim for a while but only over the last few days have I decided to get serious with him. My issue in the past has been someone who abuses the jumping fierce, and I’ve fallen to plenty of people worse than me because of it. The thing is, I’ve always been aware that I use it too much, and I’ve struggled to change it. So recently, I’ve virtually stopped playing ranked matches online. I’m assuming that’ll be a help, since the jumping fierce works all too well on many of them (except Shoryuken-spamming Kens).
And now, despite the fact that I know better, and I have been getting punished more for it, I still find myself doing it…a lot. Not as much as before, but still too much, I assume (I also slide more than I should, but I’m getting better with that). I know it’d be unreasonable to play most matches as Dhalsim without ever jumping, but is it a decent was to zone a lot of the time, or is there something smarter I can start doing to try to move away from the ease of jumping? I’ve tried using the Yoga Fire quite a bit, but my opponents seem to pick up on that quickly and take advantage of it.
