Hello SRK, where do I even start? I am quite a bit of a backseat gamer when it comes to Street Fighter. Whenever there is EVO or any major tournaments that appear on stream, I always tend to watch. Until recently I decided to actually try to relearn the game instead of being a backseat gamer again. A few years ago I tried to be serious when SSF4 recently came out at the time. I even bought a TE-R2 arcade stick along with it knowing that it is a necessity in the long run but that drive didn’t last very long. I just recently purchased SF4AE for PC because well I don’t own a console. Simple as that. Of course, the moment I got my stick hooked up to my PC (ps3 version) I instantly went to training mode to get use to arcade stick again. Went in with Ryu, doing countless DP and fireballs till I seemed satisfied. I want to learn to play Yun/Yang but for now Yun because I like the character not because of tier.
This is where the crying starts. Reason for going back to the game is because I do have a small group of friends that are playing it again and I decided to tag along. These group of friends are casuals not knowing how to combo type casuals. I want to go a step or two higher because I am getting wrecked by their shenanigans which we all know it can be quite annoying. I tried breaking down combos for hours but I am not going anywhere. Whenever me and my group have a session, out of 50 rounds, I would like one by the time its over. That is me strictly trying to play Yun because I am dedicated to learn one character. If I really wanted to win, I would just go on Ryu and cr.mk to fireball or DP when they jump in. I would win majority of the time with him. I know losing is a learning factor but I am going nowhere at the rate I am playing this game at. I read and watched most of the helpful threads and videos on the SRK forums. I think I just need someone that can tell me what I am doing wrong instead of going into a room where its all play and laugh till someone is going to bed or afk.
I feel like this thread is going nowhere, so I am going to stop here. If someone is willing to give some advice at all or be a friend. I would appreciate it a lot.
