New poster here, hey guys. Pretty new to SF4:AE, and fighting games in general, and only recently started playing online (and getting wrecked).
Anyways, I main Oni, and I'm finding trouble on what I'm supposed to do at midrange.
I'm cool with dodging fireballs and throwing them at max range, and to some extent trying to block and punish or throw close up.
But around the middle range I don't really know what I'm doing. Read about footsies and all, but once in game and at midrange, it goes like this.
-I walk up and c. mk + fireball.
-We both sit there, occasionally throwing out jabs or c. mk + fireball until we get pushed out of range
Eventually somebody snaps, walks up to a throw or jumps in, but until then, it's static.
I'm just wondering if that's the way the game is played, or I should be looking for something, I dunno.
