Analyze and critique plz. =)
There's a lot you need to improve on, to be honest. The two biggest things to work on are probably 1) Find someone actually good to play with, because that Ivy player was awful and 2) Step more. NM's step is excellent, and it's a huge part of his game. You should also work on: improving your move usage to include better moves in certain situations, and get rid of crappy ones like WR AA; using B+K to make the opponent whiff; using A+G more; using aa more; whiff punishing in general; and improving your wall combos. I'm sure others can tell you more things, but those are what really stand out to me.
The reason A+G is so good is because their only options after getting hit by it are to stay down, roll, or stand straight up. Because of this, and the fact that A+G gives you some crazy frame advantage on wake-up, you have access to a ton of things to do after it. 2[K], 2A+B, another grab, 1[A], GS B, 33B, etc.I've heard people mention how awesome A+G is, but I've never understood why. Aside from 2A+B on wakeup are there any good pressure tools to follow this with?.
