Since i saw lots of us Fei players have problem with certain characters, I thought that if you could list (in your opinion) the top 10 of the hardest character for Fei to beat and why we can have a better understanding as how to play Fei better as some of you may have difficulties against a character while others have no problems with them.
My apologies if there is a thread that is the same, please feel free to remove this thread.
I don’t really think much about the tier as it is not 100% accurate, it is more on who is playing it, my opinion of Fei Long is he should at least be in the top medium list.
Here is my top 4 hardest character to beat using Fei Long : (I only face few characters while using Fei Long, so i could only list 4)
His Lariat beat almost every Fei’s special moves and easy to do
CW is almost like a suicide when blocked
His damage is too high and his headbutt has armor breaker property
His oichio is too quick and deals quite a damage
His damage is too high
his recovery on projectiles is much quicker compare to others (except maybe Guile)
His pokes are about as fast than Fei’s
His headbutt takes too much damage
Has better reach than Fei
there is a matchup thread stickied on the first page with posts in it about all the characters you’ve listed, and there is some semi in depth coverage of the honda matchup in SAMURAI’s how not to suck at fei long guide that is fairly new.
try to do a little more searching before you post you can find almost any info you need in previous threads and the stickied threads.
and if you felt the need to apologize in advance of creating a useless thread you probably didn’t need to create it in the first place.
The thread you mention is about general strategies not personal users experience. On top of that, just as I expected the OP did not update the 1st post since months. He is not anymore on that forum either I guess. Therefore, you have to go through the 28 pages to find advices for a single matchup which is just dumb. Concrete example, I asked for advices on Balrog lately. I had interesting feedback. But in a few weeks, the answers I got will be lost in an other 10 pages of “chatting”.
What should have been done is a thread by matchup (as I suggested but just got flamed). Unfortunately everyone on the internetz is just scared of the “infamous new thread button”…
Back to the topic !
What would be interesting is to keep some kind of statistics and see which character scares FEi players the most
At the moment :
I’ll eat almost every jump-ins he performs
My TV has input lag. This makes it even harder to block and flaming kicking on reaction is just impossible.
so what you just told me is… “im to lazy to look through loads of useful information because i want a quick answer and dont want to learn about other things that may be useful to me in the development of my game.”
I’ll start a statistic from today on whom i played against and i’ll post them when i have the chance.
I have heard that Gen is hard to beat but I have not have the chance facing him, waiting for my mate who is a Gen expert (he is currently on G-1).
And I created this thread not to cause trouble but I just wanted to know which character is giving Fei alot of problems and hard to beat.
I did search the threads and I found people say they have problems against this character or that character but all in over the place, and i thought that having a specific thread about user’s experience might help.
For me, mostly the charged characters. But especially:
boxer: it’s not easy to get near him as he’ll poke you back. Charged punches are too fast for my reaction and I can’t seem to punish them even I blocked them.
Bison: His moves has really quick recovery and hard to punish. I still can’t punish his ultra with a combo. s.mk and s.hk are annoying.
Zangief: Can’t afford a single mistake, or I’ll lost half of my life bar. And he’s so durable that he’s just annoying to fight against. A full ultra can take away around 30% of his life bar and he can cut off yours with his ultra by 60%.
I used to have big problem with Blanka too. But I’ve taken the advice from some pros here and try to punish with rekka, or just dash forward. Once he’s in the corner, it’s payback time.
When you see he’s starting to hit a wall with his bounce back, pressure with rekka, f.mk, cr.mk. If he tries to jump out, give him an ex FK. Mixed with some throws and he’ll be too scared to do anything. Though you need to watch out for his ultra when he has meter.
But I still tend to screw up this match up from time to time, but less often now.
I usually lol’ed when they “counter-pick” with Blanka and still lost.
Just stop Gen from jumping at you and you stop 50% of his offense. Stand in the median range of where crane and mantis jumps would end up and flame kick if he jumps at you.
Gen doesn’t particularly need to jump or cross up people to be effective offensively, but if you make him scared to jump he becomes far less mobile. Most average Gen players don’t know how to think outside of cross-ups anyway…
it is on the character record (where you can see your % of using each character) and you can switch the page and it will tell you your win rate against each character, some say it also including playing against cpu but i’m not too certain
I certainly am taking my stats with a novelty sized grain of salt. The only one that I consider noteworthy is maybe the Sakura one. Just because BGF and I both seem to fair well against her. But maybe all of this is can’t be taken seriously because it’s just PC players.
Trust me I know that akuma and viper aren’t to be taken lightly.
