"Not bad, we should do this again sometime." --- Chun Training Thread (Ver 2.0)

bahnbahn Too easy.Joined: Posts: 1,097
What's this thread about?
In an effort to aid aspiring and veteran Chun players who seek regular sessions amongst each other, I've decided it was best to reboot the previous "Chun Mentor/Apprentice thread".

"There's a bit more info detailed then before..."
You'll note that additional information will be listed for those seeking players within the same region or other matchups beyond the Chun mirror.

Also, it would be great if those of us with Youtube channels could share their respective pages. I am sure that I don't have everyone from the Fellowship on my list. If you do add me, please be sure to indicate that you're from here with your forum name (thanks!)

"Eh, I am not very good / HA! I am so godlike!"
Please try to avoid making posts of self-depreciation (or boasting, for that matter) based upon your current skill level. Your PP/BP rank level do not need to be mentioned.

Try to keep in mind the following...
The goal here is to keep the Fellowship network active, though you're welcome to always post your availability in the standard SSF4AE Matchmaking thread. As far as I am concerned, we're all endeavoring to learn and develop our respective abilities further.

Naturally, if you're posting in this thread -- it's already assumed that your main character is Chun.
(Feel free to just copy/paste my format when adding your info).

    Goal: Advancing fundamentals and execution, ultilizing the proper poke of the right situation. Above all understanding what I'm doing wrong in match ups and knowing how to beat the player and not just the character I'm facing. Which is truthfully my biggest issue. So I'm not really looking for mirror matches so much as I'm needing to face players familiar with Chun who use other characters and can help me understand what I'm doing wrong in a particular match up.

    Need some advice from mentors, got some improvement after someone trained me for a bit and I am at 6000BP now. Below are some video that I uploaded, wish some of you can give me advice on better improvement.

  • bahnbahn Too easy. Joined: Posts: 1,097
    Try not to be so concerned with your BP advancement (or lack thereof) :)

    I recently played you at a friends house and from what I could see:

    - need more discipline to avoid jumping so much
    - focus on being more comfortable with all of Chun's AA
    - try to avoid becoming obsessed with spamming cr. RH (it's not safe on block)
    - avoid button mash tendencies (especially with EX Legs)

    Fundamentals are key and there's no need to be so anxious to get in 24/7, especially when the opponent is constantly keeping you out. Just gradually work your way in, identify what they're meta-game is like -- then focus on tendencies where they make mistakes/leave an opening. The ability to read you opponent is crucial -- if you focus on just attacking them blindly without an established strategy which can dynamically adapt in-game, you'll likely feel frustrated at your potential losses.

    Set a goal when you play... like: for this match, I will work more on my AA, I'll focus on hit-confirms, I'll remain grounded the entire match, etc. This will help you to measure your fundamentals maturing -- don't just gauge progress on wins... especially in Ranked. That will not give you an accurate indication especially since many players are simply seen as "skilled" because they sit on ranked games 24/7 while there are plenty of other players who are good, but almost rarely give that mode the time of day. Endless battles with solid players is the way to go.

    Seek out some of the players who've already posted on here if they're local to your region (i.e. Meeks or Wii). Good luck.

    (For future reference, please share any input you'd like on the Official Chun Video board so we can keep this thread specific to player data for sessions. Thanks)

    This looks like a thread that will help match making with players from the other threads, they could just go straight here for players instead of making a thread or posting in one. Good work Bahn :D I think every character forum should have one of these, it would be so convenient.
