So I'm VERY new to fighting games. I've played them casually button mashing before on some games but never seriously until now. I've gotten some of the basics down in SFV, Guilty Gear Xrd, Mortal Kombat X, with just picking up Tekken 7 with it coming out recently. The current issue I'm running into is performing special moves that require hold back → forward → attack, such as most of M Bisons moves as well as Mays Mr Dolphin move in GG. I'm just not getting the timing correct on this. For M Bisons moves in particular I find it difficult as his moves like psycho blast do not go very far and I end up moving too far back to hit. Mays is easier but I still can't pull it off quickly. Any suggestions or have a guide for me to look at to help with this?
The other execution question I have is in regard to the trails for SFV. Trying to go through the first round of trials with Cammy as she is the character I have practiced the most/enjoy her specials. The issue I'm running into is the dummy is blocking my moves after a certain point. I read that the dummy blocks if you do not perform it quick enough but I seem to be going as fast as I can. Any tips for this as well? I don't think I'm going particulary slow or anything so I'm a bit confused where to go from here.
Thanks for any help you can give to a newbie!
