Hello to all,
I’d like to preface by reinforcing the fact that i am relatively new to this site, as well as Street Fighter itself. several months now I’ve picked up Zangief and I love the guy; he fits my style of fighting like a glove.
Where I am used to matches based on fear and running away from me, i sadly cannot say the same for those who are not. i simply have yet to grasp the tactics to deal with a rushdown player who can link many hits together to do big damage or long block strings. A few friends of mine play this style, and its slowly becoming my Achilles Heel.
In short, I was wondering what general tactics would you fine folks recommend against this type of match-up. i know i will never be faster than other characters, but i would like to find a way to keep them 2 inches from my face! Thank you!
