Hello my name is Zega and like many people registered in SRK i want to be the world’s best fighting game player.
I come from years of Super Smash Bros competitve play and hav a few local region tournaments under my belt, but that’s not saying much because there is a high lack of fighting game community down here in alabama x.x. I also reccently bought SSF4 a month ago because i reccently found out brawl is not a very well respected fighter. I seriously can’t find one person to even play SSF4 with me that is wihtin an hour’s drive away unless i beg at the local gamestop for gamer tags.
I understand that research and praticpating in tournaments is a big part of getting better at the game, but both of those are hard to do here in alabama and with my main being t. hawk.
Even though i can do what little combo’s t. hawk has in training mode i find myself failing again and again with t. hawk when i am just outside of light punch range which unfortunately is the most frequent range i’m in. Jumping in and using my dive is normally punished, using his short dash as well… even his ground dive.i normally get SRKed or hadokened to death agaisnt scrubs and i can’t seem to find a very effective way around it…
So if i don’t hav the money to travel to local tourny’s or no one to play localy, or barely any T. hawk players in existince to learn from, how do i get better?
(Yes i already checked the T. hawk thread >.>, didn’t learn anything i couldn’t figure out myself, sorry : p)
