So i’m an old time Akuma player. Been kind of trying Makoto recently as i found Akuma over the years to be very limited in style and freedom of play. Tough i don’t think ill ever drop the Demon, i’m thinking of putting him on the bench for a few months.
I’m doing pretty well with Makoto, Of course that is whenever i face decent players, because i feel she relies alot on mindgames and mixups which against bad players just end up in a reversal mash game. I Generally don’t feel like dumbing my play down so it’s ironic. I do well against good players, and bad against terrible ones, lol.
I got some questions on her before i decide on switching.
One of em is the infamous Hayate-cancel.
Comboing is nothing new to me, i can put out pretty much any combo or difficult inputs that exists. ( Kara-demoning, complicated option selects, walking demons, 2 input demons, max damage FADC combos, 1 frame combos ). But ive never got to master Hayate-Canceling no matter how hard i try.
There is something i’m doing wrong. I got 5 sticks home, from typical Madcatz sf4 and super sf4 sticks to a Fighting Edge which i enjoy very much. No change there, i’m sure there is a trick in doing the inputs i just can’t get. Has anyone a tip on how to decently execute it on the stick ?
Also, Iv’e heard V-Ryu talking about how better Makoto felt on the Fighting Edge. To be honest i feel a bit better playing her on the FE than other sticks, but it may just be because the stick is sexy and V-Ryu recommended it, how do you guys feel about it ?
Finally, idd like to have some Makoto Vet’s opinion on this. basically, why should someone switch to her ? what makes Makoto you guy’s choice ? What makes you feel good playing her that you didn’t find in any other character of the cast ?
Thank you in advance fellas.
