I main Thunder & Fulgore, and ever since S2 this character has always been my Kryptonite. And now with S3, even more so!
Once her block strings starts it seems to go on forever, and I never know when it’s my turn to attack. I think there’s an opening before her clever girl and sometimes I can DP her out of it and into a hard KD. Which therein lies my next issue.
Okay… it’s my turn to attack. With Fulgore it’s a lot easier as I just go into his teleport shenanigans, but Thunder… whew. She has this move where she runs back on wakeup, allowing a follow up if she wants… and I can’t consistently punish it.
It’s like I have to hard commit to Triple Axe or Ankle slicer and risk getting shadow DP’d, or whatever her recapture move is called?
I’m not complaining about the character, just seeking tips/advice on how to handle her – Thunder in specific really. I used to just play patient and let her come to me. But now with her fire mortars… yeah… that doesn’t work anymore.
Also, if anyone’s able to go a set or two and teach me a few things, that’d be great as well.
I feel like everyone has their “Aww… Sh*t!” character when they pop up on the VS screen. Riptor is that character for me
