First I will say please dont let the title offend anyone. Im not saying these are scrub tactics or that I’m good. Just that when I play on ranked I see a lot of this (so it evidently must work). Im going to discuss them separately
- Turtling (talking about with either projectile characters or characters with full/near full screen attacks)
This is the big one as I can somewhat deal with laming. Turtling is another thing. Its not where the other player is litterally down backing and doing nothing else. For the most part I play ryus on ranked and so they can down back, yet still reach me with plasma if I try to back up for oil. So usually I end up dry with some one that has their finger on hp just in case i try to jump. They can dp if i really telegraph a jump or jump c.hp if im deceptive enough… still with plenty of time to do it and a healthy active time on that move so timing isnt an issue. Oiled I can do some dancing, whiff or dash into spd without having to be in their face to do it. Without oil im like… duhhh. I still jump in despite them being cocked and loaded. I try to attack from the front but no normal cancel on my dashes, a slow walk and a spd range worse than my regular grab makes me an easy target.
I have ppl put me in the corner and do the same thing. If im in the corner Im almost gauranteed to not have oil (usually ppl arent dumb enough or good enough to do that if im oiled) and then just down back… wait for me to make a mistake or if i just sit there suddenly jump in and laugh as a whiff a f.lp and they get some combo practice on me. Oil for blood is risky this close… I might only eat a round house… but remember they are sorta close… like oiled spd range. even an lk oil attempt is long enough for a jump in combo or a ground combo.
My question is… what do I do. spd… no range. no fadnc. cant jump. normals dont do chip.
I have a lot more holes in my game… but this is just a glaring one remembering I only play ranked and endless… no tournaments. I like the 10 seconds of oil in 2012 but I still run out… remember they only start turtling because they know dry my spd has no range. Im looking for some constructive help (although I suppose if someone wants to tell me i suck then fine but its not news)
