I just downloaded this game. I've never been a big street fighter fan and mostly stick to 3d fighters like Soul Calibur. However, i decided to give this game a try. I've really enjoyed it so far and definitely understand how deep this game can be. Anyway, one of my friends plays as Blanka and just jump kicks and shocks me to death. I know i can just use a fireball character to hit him from afar when he is in that electric shock thing. Unfortunately, my favorite characters, Cammy and Zangief are not fireball users. How do i counter that shock spam with these characters? Or should i just switch to Ken and Ryu (boring)?
If you're going to melee with elecric shock, prepare to get traded. And usually, traded bad. It's a really good option for Blanka especially for any and all rushers. I LOVE it when a Sagat player thinks he can bully my Blanka around. Only to eat 20% health elecriticity.
Hmmm...Well, it seems like the consensus is that Blanka is just a WIN button against non-fireball characters. What other characters are noob friendly besides ken/ryu? I'd rather not play the same old hadoken/dragon punch game.
