What's up SRK newbie support. I myself am not a newbie but I do have what I think is an odd situation, and am not sure If I should try to remedy it, or leave it as is.
A month or so ago, I bought my first arcade stick. This was following the 2 years I spent on SSF4 and a Seasons Beatings trip which reignited my flame for marvel. For some reason I can play Marvel on stick just fine. Wavedashing, quarter circles, charge moves, the whole 9 yards. But when trying to play SF on stick, the comfort I felt on Marvel with the stick went out the fucking window. In training mode things are just fine, FADC's and all that shit. But when I get into a game I have 0% execution.
All my set up's are gone. I lose to what I personally refer to as stupid shit. When I compare what I can do on stick to what I can on pad on SF, I realize that playing on stick set me back about a year and a half of everything that I know with Juri. For example, one of my favorite air-to-air combos is
jumping strong>jumping strong>stand close fierce xx super
On pad, I could mute the TV, walk into a completely different room, and still land that shit.
On stick, I couldn't land it if you told me you were going to jump then gave me 15 seconds to prepare for it.
I might be rambling since it is 6am. So here is the bottomline. On SF, no matter how much I try, playing stick never feels natural or comfortable to me. On Marvel, stick felt natural and comfortable by day 2.
So should I try and persist in learning stick for SF or should I be a complete weirdo and play both sides of the fence, using pad on one game and stick on the other. Because learning stick on SF gave me my first rage quit in well over 6 months I don't know what the fuck to do.
