[QUOTE]Dudley has a weak poking game, and in both 3S and SF4 is full of flashy combos with threatening close range normals that continuously apply pressure and make you scared to press buttons in response. The irony of Rog is that post-ST, Rog is more of a boxer than Dudley has ever been. Rog has many strong normals, such as a very fast and far-reaching jab (the foundation of a good boxer!) and an excellent sweep. Dudley's standing fierce and Rog's standing fierce in SF4 make for a fun contrast: they LOOK similar, but Rog's is actually good in the poking game, while Dudley's can lead to combo damage up close. Rog's sweep is a strong, fast sweep that is useful in footsies, Dudley's is the infamous "kani-pan" (crab punch) that is terrible in footsies but leads to big combo damage. Rog is capable of doing the old attack/throw mixup, and if he has some meter, is capable of doing some flashy combos, but his in-close offense is a straight forward one, and his practical combo options are not nearly as varied as Dudley's. Rog can play a fencing game that Dudley cannot, which is kind of funny given how Rog's portrayal has been increasingly brutish ( [/URL][/b][/s][/i][color=660000]-- Message too long, Autoquote has been Snipped --[/color][/QUOTE] *Angry rant of sad old person starts here* Why dudley st hk activate in the 4rth frame, goes nowhere but have hitboxes protecting his hurthboxes? For counterpoking and whiffpunishing things, from really far away. Almost every one of his normals is for this. And he walks back almost as fast as bison walks foward, beeing perfect to put him at the right spot at the right moment. How can someone say that dudley is bad at footsies? How can someone say that this is not boxer-like? Footsies are not just pokes, but counterpokes (to cut opponet attacks during activation), whiff punishes (to cut opponent attacks during recovery) and movement speed (to be at the right spot to use a poke/counterpoke/whiffpunsihes at the right timing). And dudley excells in 3 of those 4. *Angry rant of sad old person ends here* But seriously, it's not just for flashy combos, i swear. But i agree that he don't have good pokes. edit: [URL=https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=FQQCan5oo90#t=2037]found a video[/URL] of Juicebox saying the same thing, while demonstrating dudley specific case at 33:57
