Well, not sure should I post this in NSD or Akuma subforum, since, it’s Akuma question, but I still feel like a noob, so I’ve put it in here. Mods, hit in Akuma subforum if this is the wrong place for this question. Thanks.
Allright, here it goes…I’m maining Akuma, and getting the grip of playing the mofo. Finnaly I’ve adopted to the TE sticks my wife and I bought, so, I can pull some combos (nothing fancy, like-demon flip-lk-lk tatsu-hp shoryuken, or demon flip-hp-hp shoryuken, or hk-shoryuken, or j.hk-hp-lk tatsu-hp shoryuken). Am still struggling to learn FADC and proper use of it. So, you get idea of my current level of play.
The problem is; I am playing pretty much turtling Akuma. That means I spam fireballs, red fireballs, air fireballs, waiting for jump ins to shoryuken them, waiting for jumps to hit ultra, waiting for fireballs to pull demon dive flip+something combo. It works fine for now, am kicking my wife, my brothers, my friends, but…I feel it’s not right…maybe I’m wrong, but it’s all good for this kind of play (with wife, friends, bros), but I wanna take my game upper, meaning I wanna go more offensive. It seems to me, even he has such crappy stamina, he’s meant to be offensive demon. But, as Akuma has such low stamina as he has, it’s damn hard for me to play really offensive, since one mistake costs me shitload of stamina.
The question is: how should I play Akuma? Offensivly? Turtling? Any advices how to use Akuma as offensive destruction machine?
