Firstly, they seem to share with each other their strategies alot more (side question - where? just in person at the arcades, or is there some japanese SRK? do we know they share strats or just assume?)
It’s strange, but my gut instinct is to not tell anyone what I’m using in games. It’s weird, not like any of you are going to play me in tourney, but my first reaction is to not want to tell…
We really need to master the vortex. [media=youtube]cFRcezxVWKs[/media] shows a random Akuma beating Sabin convincingly using this tactic. This could level up all our games.
They also seem to be alot less aggressive, Momochi especially. In a few of his videos, he does alot of empty, fireball-less jumps. Much more calculating than our players, who seem to either be attacking directly or throwing fireballs every second. Just an observation.
What else do you think we don’t do that the Japanese are doing?
Edit: I could have sworn I updated this when I found out that Akuma was Yuu, like ten minutes after posting. Must have forgotten. Sorry guys, no need to get this damn butthurt though.
