To put it shortly, I’ve had around 5-6 weeks of having a main crisis and kinda just fell in love with how Guy plays over the past couple of days. Whether I keep at it or move onto another new venture remains to be seen and I’m still working on my game with him exclusively for now.
Anyways, I’m more of a grounded Guy and don’t go overboard with the flip at all, I find it a generally bad option sometimes and only use it during block strings as a mix-up or for 1f flip set-ups. I’ve been compiling the short list of his moves to get his ground offense going and didn’t come up with many sound options at the end, with only about 4/5 hitting the bar I’d set.
So to begin grounded approaches, so far I have on my “Acceptable” list
Target combo max range > run stop
far st.mp > buffer shadow kick/ex hozanto
shadow kick > FADC out
EX Run was something I was considering, but honestly the stop portion is so slow from anywhere viable(1/2 screen or less?) your opponent is gonna see it and throw if you run too far. I still want to try EX Run out in the neutral, beat a poke and get a freebie shadow kick combo? I can imagine it’s good in certain match-ups like maybe Abel and Ken with their long ass pokes.
I’m in heavy need of expanding my knowledge pool, any more ground offense tips would be greatly appreciated. Currently reading my way through the informative stickied threads, have about two more to go.
