What should I be doing when Sagat is mid distance away from opponent? I define this as slightly further than the ‘starting distance’. Assume if they jumped in I could not counter with DP.
O O | | / \ [Jump distance]/ \
When players are at this distance I feel a little lost. I usually just throw a fireball which they jump over. Other variations include them moving forward, me jumping in and getting anti-aired.
Should I be dancing back and forth waiting for them to make a move? If so, is this what my options look like?
They jump - I fireball
They fireball - I fireball/block/jump
They stand there - we dance, I try to dash in and poke/trip
Or is throwing a fireball here fine since they can’t explicitly punish you (unless they have a charge ultra etc), and if they jump in you can then just fight toe-to-toe in close?
