And some tips on beating sagar would help. I was completely zoned out by this one guy. Tiger shots at distance. Safe tiger knees when I'm in close. Never got in.
The thing that always stuffed me up against sagat was that i didnt block back when i used abel. Its a completely different match with cammy, but with abel, ken, ryu, fei long, dont be afraid to block. This might sound really stupid but i would never want to get chipped by any tiger shots or tiger knees so after they threw a few fireballs i would jump in, get uppercutted and be like WTF sagat is so cheap. and when they started doing those tiger knees i would try to uppercut them on reaction with ryu or roll away with abel and get heavily punished. The thing about this match is you WILL take some chip damage, but its not a huge deal.
then it depends on what character youre using so i cant really give you too many more tips, just be patient, dont be predictable with jumpins, dont focus attack too many fireballs or AT ALL close range and you can punish tiger knees that hit twice but if they hit once theyre safe. ex knee is always safe.
Edit: Just saw that you used fei, theres a really good sagt player on this thread called DROQQA. He also plays fei long so he can give you some advice whenever hes on. But in that matchup you need to walk him to the corner and poke. Lots of sake rekkas, but dont get predictable or youll eat an uppercut. one trick i found would occasionally work is rekka, wait a second, rekka, wait a second, rekka wait a second and then get ready to flame kick the tiger knee or punish the uppercut. and dont be afraid to flame kick fadc on block. one of the reasons fei long is the 2nd best character in ae is this leaves him at +1. then you can throw, block or uppercut (mixups
). also after a knockdown do the safe crossup trick and then do cr lk X2, cr lp and then rekka if it hits or maybe walk up throw if its blocked. also make sure you punish whiffed uppercuts hard, chicken wing, standing hard punch and then rekka to put them in the corner or flame kick for extra damage. im sure DROQQA will hqve better tips though
