Does anyone here use Yun and Yang well? I say both, because I use both...or at least, I used to. I found after a while that Yun was useless in comparison to Yang, but I keep seeing people say the opposite. I feel like Yun's "advantages" don't amount to anything in the end. Like, Yun's QCF+P is fast and has good range, but is way too easy to counter, even in its jab form. It's handy to throw it out after a jab, but the move just isn't safe enough. You can get thrown easily even after the jab version. Yang's QCF+P move, on the other hand, is completely safe if you use the weak version and cut out early (assuming you miss). It does cheese damage on top of that, and can be comboed from his (completely safe) low middle kick. The middle kick is awesome for both of them (I've won entire matches with just middle kick...for fun), but I feel like it invalidates Yun's anti-air kick. In fact, I've never found a use for it in a match. Yang's anti-air/roll kick, however, is nice for going under projectiles at least. That leaves Yun's F,d,df+P move, which is a great projectile counter and combo add-on, but that's it as far as I can tell. I won't mention the QCB+P move (though Yang's is better) or the command throw...and we all know that Yang's teleport sucks, but the df+K in the air move is still better for Yang, because he can do it after an attack, unlike his brother. Yun DOES seem to win in the supers department. I think his You Hou (3 hit) super is really nice, as it can be comboed, has great priority and strength and can be juggled after. With Yang, I usually go for his kick super, which has crap damage, but goes under projectiles and can be comboed from his Mp-HP-back HP chain. Otherwise, I use the Genei Jin, but never the punch super which is both hard to hit with and does crap damage. So as far as I can tell, Yun has the edge in combos and supers (and thus damage), but has less practical/effective skills on the whole.
