Hello, this is my first post, mostly since nobody else seems to have my same exact issue.
Recently I taken an interest in UMVC3, and after buying the game, the cashier recommended me a “versus pad” which makes fighters easier, and only $20. I thought this was a great deal, mostly since most arcade sticks are in 50-150 range which I do not want to spend.
I’ve now had 10 online matches, 0 wins 10 losses. All battles against a ghost rider leader. Thinking I was complete garbage, I went to training mode and what most people say to do “practice, practice, practice” Which led me to learn a few tricks. So i turned the dummy on easy. I got my ass kicked yet again.
I don’t know what to do exactly. I can get past easy arcade mode with 2 gameovers at most, but it just seems I can’t do combos under stress, and i cant block and time atttacks correctly, this usually leads to me slamming on buttons in actual fights, while training mode I can do combos pretty well when the opponet is a lifeless, moveless dummy.
What should i do to get better? I’m right now using Ryu, Frank West, and keep switching third member (Strider and Viewtiful are top choices, probably).
Heres the versus pad I bought btw http://www.gamestop.com/xbox-360/accessories/xbox-360-versus-controller-pdp/90035
