    It was good getting to see you fight as it happens instead of the usual youtube lol. You still did well, just some key mistakes hurt you in the end. Make yourself feel better about it...while I was sitting at him on my butt watching, you were actually upholding justice lol. :p

    On another note, my Cap is getting SOOOOOOOOOOO much better lately. I recorded myself today online with my cell camera, and watching it compared to some of my old play...it's just like two totally different people. I still feel as though I'm very very early in my learning (took a long step away from fighting games for a while, at least hardcore competitive style play/practice).

    Almost every single match I can tell EXACTLY where I lost the fight (if I lost that is), and I immediately state what I needed to do to fix it before the punishment is even finished being dealt. I'm finding guys who before would 100% take me to school, now I'm running with them just fine, and we're both learning a lot from each other.

    It seems that almost every single day I get online, somebody messages me afterward that they think my Cap is 'solid, awesome, great, etc.'. That ends up with yet another friend added to the list of people trying to level up. I still have things I know that I need to work on especially online things like reaction timing. (I love to do everything at the absolute possible last second...which is EXTREMELY hard online, and causes me to get hit by things I have no business being hit by).

    Funny thing...I decided heck, since the Shadow Battle things are like $1 each or so, I'll buy them anyway just to switch it up a bit. I'm 1000% glad I did, one of them (I own all 10 packs, but only played 3 of the opponents so far) has shown me holes in my fighting, and is giving me one hell of a lesson in what Wolvie/Sent/Gouki can do together. It's now my life's mission to KILL SENT IMMEDIATELY!!! Everytime I see him, all I see is red mist, and I go into kill at all costs mode lol.

    If you have Shadow Battle, look for Woshige, and have a lil fun. It's not exactly the same as a human, but it's pretty damn good AI. It made me laugh my ass off and clap when Gouki did a full relaunch combo ---> air super --> S ---> land --> sj.hado xx super. They definitely do more than just plain old A,B,C,S combos...they get pretty ridiculous.

    I never would've thought that the game's AI (though it's not the same 'ol AI as Arcade mode) could actually help me out the way it did. I hope they have one for Mag/Wesker/Sent, cuz I get absolutely destroyed by that team....okay so I've only fought 1 really good one, but still lol.

    Anyone else got any updates?

    HandiCapped yourself ehh??? How are my fellow Caps doing!? :D So far I am still 2nd rank but not playin as often. But I been able to do longer streaks before and beat players that was whooping me at first. Eh note any Caps using Dorm if ya knock someone down in a corner use his dark hole assist.(well mainly after charging star super in corner..if they dont roll foward they have to block hole u can try to flip behind them for a crossup) When they get up they'll get hit by the back of it or roll forward so be ready :D I love jump S

    At ECT3 I got to the semifinals of mypool with Cap / Hulk / Dante.

    I also OCV'd a lot of teams (including a team of aG.Felax, aG.DemonHyo, and Smooth Viper) with the same team, and I believe I got 4th or 5th in the team tournament with Dr. Chaos and Mr. Quotes.

    I think I might currently be the most successful Captain America player in the USA.
    I'm taking him to EVO! Cheer for me!

    Do you have ANY match video, we the Cap army would surely appreciate it. :)

    Great results btw, I wish I had the time/money to travel to some tourney's to get more Cap out there. Maybe later this year once things are caught up, and I've got some more breathing room. I'll ABSOLUTELY be cheering for you at Evo...as long as you're still rocking Cap on your team. lol

    So recently in all the tournaments I've been entering, I've gotten 5th out of 55 or 7th out of 46. I've been consistently getting knocked out at losers semi's or something dumb like that.

    While I always want to do better, I'm pretty happy at how many people I'm blowing up.
    Live in Colorado or visiting sometime? Let us know:

    They were gg's, 50+ matches. And yeah, that was crazy. It has really nice invincibility but never seen the Hyper Charging Star go "through" Shuma lol

    I'm looking to get in some sets with you soon ken if you have time, hopefully we can set something up :)

    I'd love to see what other good Cap's are doing that I'm not, and vice versa. That and of course to get good matchup experience against a good Cap lol, it seems hard to get that when you main Cap yourself lol.

    Nice! I won a tourney a few days after launch with my Cap/Nova/Strange team, and a few 1st place finishes in Vanilla tourneys with Cap/Shuma/IronMan. Good to see some other Cap players doing well.

    Won Tight or Fight then got blown up at the invitational, feels like going from top to 0-2

    But then Cap helped me expose HonzoGonzo, so that's still a decent night

    Captain is going to be a strong character with a few slightly bad matchups, and the reason Cap is viable against pretty much every single team are his defensive choices. He has better defensive choices than nearly every character, with higher reward (with correct DHC) for them than almost every character. No patterns allowed!

    By the way Dacid. I saw you lose at invitational because off this weird DHC you do after a Hyper Charging Star. Instead of DHCing to Devil Trigger, just DHC to Swords and you get a ToD on any character and build meter back. Hope you do better next time

    If you mean the DHC I always use, I'm intentionally not killing to put Vergil as anchor with DT, then finishing with Task to regen meter. I'm going to be really straightforward and say that anything you've thought of I've thought of, here, but thank you for the suggestion.

    OFC it's possible the set up isn't worth it, but I want my team to be unique. I lost for many, many more important reasons.

    EDIT: And I don't mean offense by that, just I've spent soooo long thinking about the way I'm doing things and why

    I'm just baffled as to why you're passing up easy tods for something which seems like a gimmick to me, but fair enough if you choose not to kill for a reason you've properly thought about

    Got 2nd this weekend at another small tournament, but good players in attendance (such as FlashMetroid). Lost to a friend of mine in Grand Finals who has some interesting Wesker + Strider tricks I hadn't dealt with before

    Permanently switching to Cap/morrigan/Task, and I expect to have fewer bad matchups as a result of it. Top 8 at TNT, lost to Champ but by less than normal, with an inexperienced Morrigan. On the up and up!

    Awesome Punish :) glad to hear that. Umm where do you live?? I live in Lithonia, Georgia we always had pretty good connections I thought you would live nearby. Cap n Nova thats some damage for ya... No more shuuma?? Well my team changed as well... Cap Firebrand and Morrigan.

    Nice, I've been messing around with Firebrand also. I haven't used Shuma much, but he's pretty similar in Ultimate so I can always pull him out if needed. I'm in Central FL, so that explains the good connection.

    Let's get some matches in soon

    Hey Dacid, care to elaborate on the team switch reasoning? :)

    Kei

    Sure thing man.

    First, having a meter assist forces approach from pretty much everyone but phoenix players (And even then I don't have to approach right away), meaning I don't lose to matchups like ghost rider/sentinel, where I can't get in... I don't NEED to get in, so ghost rider has to hold forward (similar for all zoning teams)

    Second, I have a reversal with every single character on my team (or at least a counter), and a supplemental followup reversal DHC no matter what as a result. Since Morrigan spends most time in the middle, I also most commonly have a safe install DHC to either save Cap from HCS and score a free mix up or to control neutral game.

    Third, if I cross counter to Task master, I refresh Cap and maintain the same solid synergy of reversal/safe DHC in the middle while my opponent is likely still waning towards a dead character.

    Fourth, all characters still use XFC well. People who think Morrigan doesn't probably haven't seen the scariness of a nearly unrestricted air dash height. Morriganeto.

    Basically, it's less BS and more solid choices. I'm not going to have the same level of fear that Vergil can instill, but if I play solid I should have far less potential to be random-ed out while maintaining most of the strong options necessary to beat good players. I think it has a larger skill ceiling, and has less random-plot holes like "did I know my opponent was going to CC or not", which I feel may become the name of the game for Vergil, later.
