FT3 match played with my online buddy Lord Worshum! (with some bonus matches, because, as mentioned previously, you’re such a good blog customer)
I got some advice from Mr. Naps, who I get to play with in person here and again, about Bryan pressure: don’t just freeze up when somebody’s got +frames. Bryan in particular, he said, only gets about +3 on his b1 (the big, scary overhand elbow), and there’s not all that much he can do with it. You don’t have to just eat a mixup. You can (sometimes) press a quick button! You can sidestep! Don’t let the Bryan player just pressure you – teach them to be afraid of your response!
So armed with that advice, here I’m often managing to disrupt Worshum’s Bryan offense. Would it have worked in every case? Not at all – but it worked out in many of the situations in this match.
Maybe similar advice is applicable when a Jin is trying to rush you down with 1,2,3 (jabs into that scary ax kick, which is also mid and +3)? What to do? Duck-jab? Backdash and try to whiff-punish their follow up? Something randomized, so you can keep them afraid? (PROTIP: do the last one)
