I decided to main Sonya because I like her in-your-face style. But I am finding now that especially online, I can't get in close with her. I constantly get pinned just outside of jump range with projectiles and wait until they get bored and kill me with a teleport, slide, etc. Even against a Sheeva player, which the strategy guide (yeah, yeah, I know. But it was all I had until today ) says is Sonya's best matchup, I can't do anything but succumb to Fireball>Stomp combos. Almost every character has some sort of teleport or something to close gaps quickly. Sonya has the Arc Kick, but with such a long buildup and the vulnerability afterward, it's not a very good tactic. I've tried Kartwheel, but more often than not, my opponent thanks me for the free combo opportunity. So, how do I get in close with Sonya without losing half my health being punished for one dash?
