  • I find on stick it is easier to learn new combos or motions. But once I can do something on stick it isn't an issue to do it on pad. The bigger movements on a pad just seem nicer to do and you can be a little more sloppy sometimes when learning new …
  • There isn't much life in SF4 anymore. And most of the mechanics don't carry over to 5. So I would suggest dropping the game and starting fresh with 5. However if you want to play then all you can do is practice practice practice. If you are seein…

  • My bad. I thought you were just shitting on MKX like a lot of people seem to do. Street Fighter V is a good place to start. And yes, say no to any anime fighter in the beginning. Though Injustice 2 is going to bring in a lot of players so the talent…

  • I have both consoles and the XBone is hands down the better option for me. PS4 has SFV which is nice if that is what you want to play. But the Xbone has a much nicer online infrastructure. I get less lag when comparing things like MKX on Xbone to w…
  • That's where it starts. A good understanding of what the opponent can do in any situation helps you know what to expect. If there is few options like them loosing meter or a jump, chances are they will jump. But keep in mind that you need to keep an…
  • Donkey Kong all day long. The lighter weights are good for new players as you can get your acceleration up. The super heavy dudes are great for time trials because you don't have others to contend with and you want pure top speed. The DK class has g…
  • Jump in man. Typically I am not a fan of the PS4. But it is what the tournament scene uses. I had to pick one up for all the fighting games I play. Worked out to be really worth it though. I have my Xbone and PS4 next to each other and since gett…
  • On a side note, to win, you have to be victorious.
  • Yomi isn't something you practice. It is something high level players develop from playing the same opponent over and over and learning the play style. But if you want to seen like you have Yomi, then learning set ups is what you want to do. Get …

  • This is a tough one to really answer. It is purely a personal mater. I am more than happy to spend an entire weekend in lab just messing around doing the same shit over and over. I have friends who don't lab at all because they don't enjoy it, and w…

  • What in the hell is lag switching.
  • If I could get a decent VS stick at a crazy price that would be my go to. The HRAP has nice length, but I cant stand the start button on the front panel. Between the Atrox and a TE2 I would probably go with the Atrox. The case just looks nicer. I…
  • That and that^^^^. When I play a mate we will pretend to be in a tournament and do a first to 3. The looser gets punishment. After we have done that for a while and we have kept our secrets from each other, we hop into the lab and just keep goin…

  • Snaking and fire hopping isn't some gimmick people were relying on to beat the competition. All top competitive racers and all the time trial record holders all learned the track and learned how to think and race well. I myself feel I am really good…
  • Thanks @deejaycrib.
  • You are welcome dude. With the fear thing you are talking about of getting knocked when going in for a throw or light button. Pay attention more to what you are doing. If you get hit and die whatevs, you lost a match. But you also gained valuable…
  • Read some posts. Then stopped, this is way to much to bother going through. But what I think a $60 dollar game should have is a great single player and lots of up front content. With nothing locked on disc. If the DLC is truly DLC then that's OK.…
  • Thanks @UltimateChocolate I will check that out.
  • Also what sub forum is this thread in. I don't see it in the Nintendo pages. I have to search everytime to come here. Haha.
  • One of the more exciting things driving my interest for MK8D was getting back into the techniques. Its removed the thing that made it possible for some to be better than others. Even if everybody learned to Fire Hop we would all do it to the best of…
  • I am waiting for my copy to arrive for the Switch. So I have just been Googling the crap out of it, and came across some horrible information that I would like people here to confirm or disprove. I read fire and daemon hoping are out. Why on eart…
  • I love single player content in every game I buy. My focus on fighting games is the lab and offline. But I love single player campaigns. MKX has a fantastic single player. And having a single player campaign wont add any more to the cost, the of …

  • If you are walking straight up to them you will get hit. If your shimmy is right you can land a light hit. As you step in and step back out again they will attack with whatever button and you can throw out the light. If you can walk in and drop a me…
  • Super Turbo any version. PS2 has the nice controller. Third Strike.
  • Read Daigos book. I plan on doing it soon. One thing that stands out in what he has written is that he was training to hard to win at one point and he was getting really unhealthy. So he had to change his mindset. Right at the time he made a little …
  • Paying attention to your meter is part of the bare minimum you should be doing. If you can't keep track of meter then negate it from your game plan. Not using meter is better than using it wrong and getting blown up and loosing. You need to be looki…

  • At 19 you have plenty of time to hit God Status. Like I have said and many others, its just about practice. Something I find really good sometimes is spaced repetition. Its a technique I use when practicing guitar. Pick one thing you want to lear…
  • I have a TE-1 that I am using. And would really lick a stickless layout. If I cant find a Hitbox, I may be looking at getting another fight stick. The thing is though, I can get a UFB and the buttons to build a Hitbox a lot cheaper than getting a…
  • Or is there anybody around London with a Brooks UFB modded hitbox. Preferably Sanwa buttons.
  • I just saw an old post of yours about getting frustrated an pissed off. Are you still like that. Or have you calmed down more when playing. Because that factors a lot in how you develop or don't develop as a player. Also in that post it seems you ar…
  • Oh I see. That's all mental then man. Play some offline sets with some mates. A lot of the guys that start out training with us often struggle with just that, and I find its because they hold their online rankings and win ratios in high regard. B…
  • What game are you playing and can you explain that a bit more, I don't know the x's notation.
  • I would say it took a few solid months before I got to the point that I would expect to win. And even then it was against the same 15-20 guys that seemed to circulate through the lobby. I never had problems with combos online, but I did have prob…
  • Dude, be happy. Those are great results in a couple of days.
  • Personal preference will always win. I just find the DS4 feels cheap and cramped. The Bone control is more open and sliding on the face buttons and D-Pad feels smoother. Stick is definitely easier to play things like Marvel and SFV. Some people d…
  • I will sign that. What is LTG.
  • Unless you want to play with negative edge, you should turn it off while learning. How it works is you press a button in and hold it, the character on screen wont do anything. Only after you release it they will perform the action. This is helpf…
  • This and That^ There are so many things you need to look at to find out why you aren't doing better. If you can land your combos consistently in the lab then you need to learn why you cant land them against a human. This will come down to how …
  • I love playing against the AI. When you get better you will understand why a lot of top people tell you not to bother. Once you figure out the patterns of the AI you can cheese them and win. But I feel a lot of people miss a great point with the …
  • The DS4 is pretty poo. I only play on the Xbone controller when I play pad. The rounded edges on the face buttons, the nicer bumpers and triggers and the size and comfort are way better in my opinion. Plus it feels more rugged to me. The DS4 is flim…
  • There is a SRK Wiki. Why not just use the site.
  • Yip. Nothing needed except the games and the gamers. With Nintendo stuff you have previously needed their permission to stream or post the game content on Youtube. But all they would do if you don't have their permission is ask you to take it dow…
  • Wait. So is she going to prison because she gave this lucky AF kid everything he was probably dreaming since he first started in her class. I mean, its not like she gave him an A on his report as payment or anything.
  • Actually I just remembered I saw some Aris videos recently. I think he did three tutorials and then three question and answer videos. One of them was creating strategies with movement or something like that. That would have helped me out a lot as a …
  • If you are wanting to get into the Tekken story in anticipation for the console release of 7, then just watch the videos on YouTube that explain all the back story and watch the cannon intro and outro videos for each game. Don't bother watching anyt…
