Hi all. I don’t want to bog this forum down with posts from a beginner but I’m in need of some advice. I really never played any fighting game very much, and I’m trying to get into SSF4 now. I’ve been using Abel, having fun but I just can’t seem to get the hang of him. I feel like I’m constantly getting punished very hard while never really putting any pressure on and I don’t get many safe moves in. I either get rushed down and poked to death or people just keep jumping away and I can’t seem to rush them down.
Now I know Abel is a great character in the right hands…but is it just me? Or is Abel pretty hard for a beginner to use? I guess that’s my main question. I keep hearing that he’s really easy and all but I’m struggling really bad to get wins against people.
So yea, is Abel a hard character to use for beginners? or am I just bad and need to learn to play?
