Dont try to outfootsie him, he’ll win. That said, fireballs and jumping in should generally do well vs him. And Guile seems to have plenty of anti-airs to deal with jump shenanignas.


#3

I’ve played a lot of this match and it feels pretty even. Guile can frustrate him but Vega has very good potential once he’s got the upper hand. Vega has to take a lot more risks though, so over the course of time this might be in Guile’s favour.


#4

Does anyone know a reliable counter to vega’s flying barcelona? FK and cr. HP whiffs or loses outright if he is behind you or directly above you.


#5

j.MP, j.FP, and air throws can all work with the proper angles and timings. Probably less risky to just dash or bazooka knee out of the way though.


#6

JWong vs. ROM

Clearly ROM doesn’t know the match-up, but could still be useful.
