Started USF4 about a month ago. Played ~ 600 matches in ranked won ~ 130 mostly against profoundly terrible people.
Played Ryu for ~ 400, switched to Balrog and am having much more fun.
Against equally skilled ( I.e other people I can tell are pretty bad) one of the ways I lose is getting thrown a fair bit. Against shotos I have a bad habit of keeping TAP charged which contributes to this, so I know I need to stop that. (Pinky on 3*k button so lk+lp doesn’t register.)
Certain situations I’ve come to recognize (blocked tatsu for instance), and I have some success teching then.
Against fast chars though, especially Cammy and Ibuki and Guy I pretty much lose to throw. I also feel like I’m not using them offensively enough.
I did search newbie dojo first, not much written.
