yeah, he did drop me out of his CC, but it was towards the end of his meter and his full custom wouldn’t have killed me. basically, his A-sagat took out my A-blanka AND sakura, then my bison cleaned up his sagat. then i comboed into CC against his rolento, which was like a full life combo coming from a R2 bison to a R1 rolento. so he has a full metered bison and i don’t. we play the footsie game, then i fall for something like roll activate or dash activate or something, and his custom fills up my bar. so with a full bar, he accidentally does a psycho crusher when i’m in the corner. i block it, and CC him for the win. good match, but we both had plenty of mistakes due to nervousness.
the main reason i dropped eagle for evo in the actual tourney was because i won another tourney with A-blanka/sakura/bison and i wanted to keep that team. i know my eagle is infinitely better than my bison, but bison’s CC is infinitely better than eagle’s, so the ability to make a big comeback was more important. my eagle was doing extremely well in casual though. i remember i took out RF’s A-sakura and A-bison in casual with just eagle, and my eagle did well against kindebu in casual also. basically if i felt a team BAS mirror match was coming, i’d swap out eagle for sakura or bison. i just need to get my confidence back up with eagle, that’s all.
PS- in my match vs cole second round in winners, i learned that cammy owns sakura. play the range game all day with cammy’s standing roundhouse (which outranges sakura’s). sakura jumps or does a RC from a distance, cannon spike. ggpo sakura. anybody have any advice on this matchup?
