I generally put Blanka players into two different categories:
 
1) Chubby Bearded Men (seriously. look at old Evo footage if you don't believe me)
2) Assholes who know they are assholes.
 
 
Jeff is on his way to being a Chubby Bearded Man so I ask.....are you an asshole?

Thats for you to decide!  
 
I mean, I am fat, IDK if that influenced me to choose to play blanka (no beard atm). 
 
Many people think me to be the opposite of an asshole... but I dont care if anyone does. 
 
Anyways, I don't really fit completely into one of those, but I am slightly overweight.

If your going to school, and the reason your can't grow a beard is that it's against the rules... are you a man child? 
  
But seriously, don't play Blanka, its very close to Sagat and Dhalsim on matches that I hate.

I could grow a beard by my junior year

I can't actually grow a beard, I have Joe Dirt facial hair. 
 
The setup @ 0:32 Ryu can use an invincible move to go right through the electricity. Resets are risky in itself.

Not sure if I should be mad or not =\
 
 
Elec is great n all but you cant rely on that I only really use it during block strings not so much AA, takes too long to start up unless I know its coming. ALSO Pianoing is for babies get a glove son!  ( ALSO ALSO I will have shitty match footage up of me soon.)

real talk: gloves are for people who can't piano

#13 Posted by jaycee13 (523 posts) -

A Bengali kid in my school has had a full on beard since he was 13.  The thing is bigger than his fist now.
real talk: gloves are for people who are scared of getting blisters

If you see a ryu do that once, I warned people to make sure they have a lead when doing these resets, otherwise watch the meter, and know that LP will stop any shoryu other than EX, and if he pulls a tatsu or hado electric goes under it and punishes (ex as well)

#16 Posted by Driadon (2990 posts) -

I can't grow facial hair worth shit, and my metabolism means that I could be confused for an albino Ethiopian. I use a few of those tricks, but the get-the-enemy-to-kick reason just doesn't work. Many people these days have figured out what breaks Blanka's electricity.

#17 Posted by YetiAntics (1489 posts) -

This is just too weird. our local Blanka player (champion) is a chubby bearded man. 
This is not coincidence anymore, its a stereotype!
#18 Posted by Stang (4726 posts) -

12 year old girls can grow more facial hair then me, plus when I go to the gym I always wear gloves. What does this make me?

@Stang: what exactly would be the purpose of gloves in a gym? Do they have a picture of spiderman on them? Or the hulk, that would be more suiting i guess.

Have you ever tried doing shrugs with 2 80 pound dumb bells, or bench 2 80 pound dumb bells? That shit shreds up your hands!

Anyways, before this topic goes too offtopic (what with beards and gloves and such), can someone tell me if they liked my video, its quality, and such? 
 
I will make more if you guys like it!

@demontium: I thought you provided good insight sir. I still think you are an asshole for using Blanka though, nothing will ever change that.

there you go. Now get your gloves, we're going to play the piano.

Does this count as a WOMBO COMBO? (Yes its on topic, it has Blanka in it, and mad piano execution.)

@Plasma: I feel like no one knows what pianoing is. Just cuz Blanka is using elec doesn't mean hes pianoing.
#36 Posted by jaycee13 (523 posts) -
@Stang: cant say i have. come to think of it i've been to the gym maybe twice in my life if that.
#37 Posted by Napalm (9020 posts) -

Pianoing seems like a weird concept to me. Of course, I can also understand why pianoing works, because it's a way to ensure tight combos.

Don't need to worry about feeding me, I am not not the fat asshole who mains Blanka.

I completely agree. Pianoing is a technique used when you need to get a lot of button inputs within a few frames. Sliding is a completely different technique but it produces the same outcome. For example honda hhs requires 5 punches to be quickly pressed. It's easy enough to just mash down on one button to get the 5 presses out, but if you're trying to combo into the hhs from another move you need a much faster way to do it. I piano by hitting lp hp mp lp hp. The first lp will come out as a regular old jab and it also gets counted towards the 5 presses needed o get hhs. It's important that the last button is hp because you want to use the fierce version of the hhs. If you do it all fast enough then honda will combo jab into fierce hhs. It's also a safe blockstring which is why it's so important.
 
I don't know if this applies to blanka, chun, or gen because I don't know how many buttons must be pressed for their moves to come out, how fast they must be pressed, or what normals to use before pianoing.
 
I'm going to take a stand and say that pianiong is harder but more reliable than sliding. Maybe it's not for everyone but I do think it's worth the time to work out. Back when I used to slide to get hhs out I ran into all kinds of problems. Sometimes I would accidentally hit kick buttons, sometimes I wouldn't slide far enough / fast enough, sometimes I would somehow get ex hhs instead of just regular hhs.
#41 Posted by Scooper (7882 posts) -

Yeah, sliding is the poor man's piano. Or in the times you don't care what version comes out you'll slide. I can't do either since I'm on pad but that's why I don't play those characters!
 
(Ps. I need a new 360 controller now lmao. I managed to break the RB so need to push it really hard for it to work ;( Damn it.)

#42 Posted by AniMoney (957 posts) -

Yeah I never learned how to piano. Maybe I would play Honda more if I did.

#43 Posted by jaycee13 (523 posts) -

i tried to learn gen for a few days once. Got mad blisters on my index finger from sliding.

I think after being sucha long blanka user as myself, you get used to the button pounding, which is actually more of a VERY light but quick tap motion.@Plasma said:

Further proof that Blanka > Gen

IDK if I even have a technique, I have just become so fast at pressing jab its like second nature.
#46 Posted by lordofultima (6186 posts) -

Pianoing is pretty tough, I generally do it too fast so it turns into a plink, and I get ex hands instead of normal hands. Sliding is annoying because I hit other buttons, and I don't like moving my hand at all while hitting buttons. Moral of the story, characters with mash specials are dumb.

 one thing that helped me slow it down and even it out was trying to concentrate on hearing the press of each individual button, then my pianoing became much smoother

Reason being I am on the edge of my seat knowing DeeJay's maraca punch could very well be a mash special in Super. That would be defestating to me.
