I’ve been watching ridiculous amount of Hakan play as of late and I notice that once players get opponents to the corner, they jump over and do oil set up and take the opponent out of the corner. I think this is wrong. We as Hakan players WANT the opponent in the corner, this limits their options. Even characters that have many options like C.Viper and Seth, can be limited to a degree if put in the corner. Also, Hakan secondary command Grab; Oil Dive is set up to get the opponent to the corner faster. So last night, I put it to the test and it’s worth it. After I was done, I just sat down and wrote out several other thoughts and started to watch Mago’s Fei Long corner tactics. People say that you do not want to be in the corner against Fei Long, I feel the same can be said about Hakan. With that being said, Hakan in the corner, unoiled is absolutely dreadful, however when I saw Kokobananaman go against Jan’s Zangief (3 weeks ago at his local ranbats) it showed me something. Working on a rope-a-dope strat for being in the corner unoiled.. This is just me thinking out loud and want to share with you guys.
SSFIVAE: Hakan | SFxT:King/Dudley/Hwoang/??? (Still trying to find a 4th)
