I’ve been playing Bison for yeeears (more than a decade actually), and in CvS2 he is quite a good character but I never bother with A groove. C groove is your best friend IMO. I’ve tried the paint the wall tactic, it’s really good but not my style of play.
My philosophy with Bison has always been PRESSURE. Beat the opponent down as much as you can cuz Bison can be very intimidating. Don’t use the psycho crusher unless you are absolutely sure you will land it. Finally use the cheapest tactic of all…
It takes a lot of practice but if you can pull it off, you will become unstoppable. What I do is quite simple, you roll through an opponent and just before the roll ends you do your lvl 3 psycho break smasher, the opponent will not be able to block it because he is already the opposite direction. This tactic has helped me win several matches in CvS2!
Universal Bison combos have always involved crouching LP and MK, followed by either a psycho crusher, knee press or throw.
MP is also your best friend, Bison’s fists in general should always come in handy. They do a good chunk of damage.
Bison has always been known of being a cheap thrower, so live up to the tradition and throw people whenever you get the chance.
Using his flying attacks (head press and devil’s reverse) to confuse your opponents is also an excellent tactic.
Teleport only if you know how to teleport and if you wanna get out of corners (which you should be able to do without trouble).
HP is deadly, especially if you use it as an anti-air.
The best piece of advice I can give to ANY Bison player is to ALWAYS be charging. I’m charging when I’m jumping, walking, running, or doing other attacks. This takes a bit of practice but if you succeed you will be able to do any move at any given time without the opponent realizing that you’re charging.
I never really liked the Psycho Banish, it works well with A groove but I generally have no use for it. Roll is better.
If you know how to use K groove (which I sometimes use), go for it. Pure POWER! You can fuck up people and turn the tides of battle rather quick with it, it also compliments Bison’s aggressive gameplay quite well.
Just my 2 cents on how to be a good Bison player.
Btw I love this forum! It attracts Bison fanatics like myself.
