Get a bud that knows the game to coach you and it can take only a few days, learning by yourself requires a lot more extra curricular work (studying matchups and such) which takes a couple weeks of dedication.
Sometimes, I think people are smarter than they are. I go for Bison's 50/50 ultra setup, but I typically go for the front since I think people are used to it hitting there. But they block it from the front.
Or maybe they know that I think that they typically block backwards, so they block forward. But what if...
Greg: On my phone so I don't want to quote you. Putting pressure on your Vega is easier said than done. First, it's an unfamiliar match for a lot of people. And I don't mean like no one knows his moves, but more what can be stuffed, what can be punished, etc. If you get some breathing room, you can df HK which seems like it swallows nearly all my inputs once it's active, you have a variety of reversal and escape options with meter, and some people just haven't figured out what can be punished, stuffed, and what to use to do it. Plus, you switch your style up so much that once someone has one thing downloaded, you add another layer.
I know I'm kind of a scrub, and need to learn to pressure better, but saying "pressure my Vega" and actually doing it are very different. I don't blame anyone for playing defensive. In my experience, there are times when I just don't know what to do. I don't like getting nailed with CH df HKs every time I throw a poke out.
Hope this doesn't sound like complaining. It's not meant to. Just giving you an idea of what's going through one of your opponent's heads when you're busy smashing their face in and sending them to the back of the line in an endless lobby.
With the better pic Adon and Dee Jay definitely have the best costumes in that set. Rufus' has the nice hearts touch everywhere, I like it. Fuckin' Blanka has to be a damn troll in every aspect of his existence so I'm not surprised to see that thing make him take up twice as much space as usual and will definitely look ridiculous in balls.
