It's funny how people behave when points/records that don't really mean anything are on the line. Ah well. So I've been playing a lot of Ryu mirrors lately. Maj wrote this article on how a Ryu mirror is possibly the most interesting matchup in any SF game because Ryu is always a footsies character and pretty much has an answer to anything, and because of this, playing a Ryu mirror is a good indication of how good your footsies are. I have to say mine have improved quite a bit since I've been playing more Ryu, and it's really carried over even to my Guilty Gear playing.
