I apologize in advance if I post things in the wrong area
I've always had trouble seeing grabs in SF. However, if people spam grabs, I can anticipate it a bit, however, I really have trouble visually seeing grabs. Not command grabs but the universal grab.
I looked it up and on start up it's 4 frames
that's pretty fast.
So I wondered. Is there something wrong with me...? Should I be able to see them easily...? Do I just suck >.< Or is it simply that I have not played enough SF
I don't have as much trouble in Tekken. Tekken is unfortunately often much harder, because you have 3 universal grabs and a lot of characters have character specific grabs, even the characters that aren't grapplers at all. However the fastest grab in Tekken is 10 frames I believe. There are tricks that at the same time make it easy to recognize grabs and break them in Tekken.
I played SF 2 when I was a kid and some of the others as a kid, but, I only started seriously playing about a year ago. I played SFIV for about 6 months, then SFV for a few weeks, then quit and have been playing Tekken for 8 months or so playing and practicing almost daily, now I return to SFV a much better player, but, I have a lot of the same problems I had when I left. I'm a more motivated player and breaking grabs is an essential skill
Thanks for any answers
