Hey everyone, this is my first lost on SRK hope it’s in the right place. Anyways, I need advice on a bunch of things. If you would like to give some input feel free I’m just going to start talking I guess. . .
I play mainly three characters Juri, Ryu and Abel. I don’t have a fight-stick yet, it’s in the mail and should be here Monday.
My problem with all my characters is that I have a very reserved play style. My offense is not as high as my defense. I’m working on blocking those mix-ups and I’m getting a lot better at it, I suck at wake up mix-ups on others though. I’m way better at blocking them than doing them to others. I’m getting better at crouch tech-ing also. Trying to stop jumping so much and get my ground game up.
When I play Ryu a lot of times I feel like if I’m not punishing stuff the I can’t really do anything with him. If they make a mistake a punish hard but I never really put the pressure on them, out of all my characters. Usually when I do punish it hurts though.
With Juri I have a hard time with Turtle characters. I fight a Blanka or a Guile and I can’t do ANYTHING. Juri is a nice versatile character which honestly suits my play-style because it’s just the way I am. But i feel like I need to take her to the next level. Sorry if that’s not very specific.
Abel is probably my best character but I have problem with rush down Characters like Ibuki, Guy and Rufus. There offense rate and pressure is so high I really never have chance to do anything but block and block and make mistakes and get hit. Those are the characters I really have trouble with, when I play Abel.
Well to further comment on what I said before when I was talking about Juri, I can never beat a decent Blanka or anything really who offenses that are composed of those safe after block special attacks like the Blanka ball or E.Honda headbut dash thing, or Bison Scissor kick. They just keep doing it and I feel like right when I could counter attack they are in a good position/zone or they are just doing it again over and over and I can’t really stop there offense. They just sit in the corner and do the same moves over and over and back up. I can’t jump in i can’t do anything.
Which brings me to another problem is that I really don’t have a good sense of frames. I feel like the person on offense always has the best frame advantage and always is getting me right before I could hit them. I can’t punish it because I cant really sense when their actives are over. Then again it might just be the people I’m playing just really know what they are doing.
Well, if you have anything to say feel free. If you need me to be more specific about anything just ask (sorry for all the grammar/spelling mistakes).
