Hey guys, I’m just curious, I’ve heard one of E. Ryu’s buffs are his sweep improved to be as some say “the same as Akuma’s” so I tested a few people, and only been able to land the Statsu -> Sweep on Balrog & Cammy. Does anyone else know or have the full list of who we can do this on?
He can only tatsu>sweep Cammy, Balrog, Rose, Dee Jay, and Dhalsim as he did in AE. Akuma can tatsu>sweep 25 of the 39 characters, his sweep is a 6 frame start up. They changed Evil Ryu’s sweep to 6 frames, but then they changed it back to 7 and gave it more active frames and a damage buff.
I don’t know why they felt the need to change it back. I assumed it was because he has new ways to combo into a hard knockdown from HK axe kick from a cl. MP and both HK and MK axe kick off a juggle. But it’s hard to get in the position to hit confirm cl. MP and landing either axe kicks off juggles normally cost meter.
OHHH I SEE! Ya I knew he could do it to a select few but I thought the 6 frame was finalized and he could do it to everyone.
I can understand the whole cl.medium -> to HK axe kick deal, but like you said you have to be REALLY close + weird hit box characters like sagat that’d be far Medium unless your REALLY close cause his hitbox is weird at the top.
I just wish we didn’t have to interchange between the two but that’ll be an evil ryu thing I’ll need to get used to.
