posted March 9, 2016

When using Ryu it is very important to remember to not only be patient and wait for your opponent to make a mistake before punishing them, but to also bait your opponent into your attacks. I can see how some people can develop problems with my advice due to the rather limited options ryu has, however you can stiil keep your opponent guessing and even scare them into rethinking their current strategy granting you enough time to punish them from a blocked attack or parried attack or perform a mix-up on them. Ryu may be considered a "base character" but his range, damage, and slightly above health can be more tha enough for a good patient player to pick him up and use his unique tools effectively.
