Hey all, I just picked up UMvC3 a couple weeks ago and have started the uphill battle to become serviceably good at it. I’m really at a loss as to how to practice intelligently though… I haven’t played fighting games at all in nearly a decade, and being just a kid then, I was never more than a glorified masher. I really want to take this more seriously though. I’ve made inroads with my local FG scene, but when I went to their Marvel night last week, I was too intimidated to even play - even the worst of their players would have made me feel like I was flopping uselessly around the screen. So I just watched.
I’ve been practicing basic combos with different characters in training mode. I can do simple MMHS stuff just fine, and I’ve pulled off a few relaunches and such, but I haven’t yet been able to land a full BnB with a single character. I know these things take time, but I’m just frustrated because I don’t feel anywhere NEAR ready to even TRY the good part - playing other people.
So, this is a vague question, but how should someone of my sheer n00bness proceed? Should I just keep hashing it out in training until I can land a character’s BnB consistently, or should I be doing something else? I have to admit, just wailing on a standing dummy for hours on end isn’t really all that much fun.
Thanks for your help, guys. For the record, this is also my first ever post.
