Hiding your intentions

What separates the great players from the good players is the ability to hide your intentions in-game and in tense situations. It's one thing to know a matchup 100% and enter a match with a gameplan but if you're predictable, all that flies out the window.

Cody - advanced guide (Part 2)

Frame traps

Cody's main strength lies in his ability to frame trap the opponent and setup counter hits where he lands his most damaging combos. A frame trap is a sequence of normals, that usually have frame advantage on block, where you leave a gap of 1-3 frames to the opponent into pressing a button to induce a counter hit from the next incoming move.

Cody - advanced guide (Part 1)

Safe jump setups

A safe jump is a specifically timed jumping attack, used after an untechable knockdown, that prevents the character from getting hit due to them recovering from their jump attack before the opponent fully wakes up. This is integral to high level play as it allows Cody to option select, bait moves and bait the opponent into wasting meter.

Cody is an all-round character with average stamina and above average stun. He has a relatively slow walk speed, moderately quick forward dash, deals heavy stun off moderately easy combos and has a decent focus attack.

2011 - The info starts now!

Happy new year to everyone, it's finally over.... my hangover I mean, so I can start posting the refurbished Cody guides, some of the latest Cody footage, Cody matchups (hope the UK gets AE as soon as so I can start on the Yun/Yang matchup) and some general SSF4 tips that will help make you a better player.

First things first, this is my youtube channel ALL Cody players subscribe to that channel as I will be regularly uploading Cody specific videos as well as other characters. I will also be taking suggestions on any Cody ideas you might have.

If you want any questions answered, have an idea for my blog (improvements etc.) or you're just curious (doesn't have to be about SSF4 ) then check the 'About' section to find my email where I'll respond either to your email or on the blog.

I'll start writing up the matchup information starting with the most common character..... Ryu. I'll then work my way through all the matchups I've experienced in tournaments and casuals against the top players in the UK. If you have any suggestions or info on Cody's matchups feel free to send them in, I'll give credit to the writer and also test it to make sure all info is 100% true.

That's it for now, keep checking back a ton of info will soon be uploaded.
