Anyone else here pump in hours of practice into fighting games, but still end up playing as mediocre as possible? I just don't know how you guys do it, it's like you have to be born with it or something. When ever I win a match I feel as though it was an undeserved win, because I'm just doing stuff that wouldn't work at all should I have been playing against some one who knew their shit. I'm not asking for tips on how to get better, that ship has long sailed (Besides, the only "Advice" ever given is to purchase an arcade stick). I just want to know, how do you do it? How do you get your mind to remember these long ass combos and be able to input these complex moves fluently and easily like this?
I play on 360 with a regular controller (not a madcatz pad, just a regular xbox360 controller), I once asked asked that guy "Lythero" what he used, and he told me he used a regular 360 controller as well using the analogue stick, just like I do. I guess that's why I pushed on instead of giving up fighting games altogether, because there are other guys out there that play using a regular NON-MODDED controller. I probably sound babby as fuck with all this complaining, but it's frustrating to know that my limit is laughable in the eyes of other players. I'd play some of you guys to show you my skill level, but that wouldn't solve anything.
