So here I am, Just coming back to the game from about 7 months of not playing it. I wanted to play a new character. Everyone picks up Ken, and I was getting rap for playing Juri with my friends. So, I look to Cammy. A character I hated when I played SFII by myself, and one I’ve never played.
I came here looking for strategies, tips, etc etc, the whole Street Fighter deal. I learned Cammy was a rushdown character, and she’s gotta be up close, mixing up her offense, keeping the opponent on their toes, otherwise she’s pretty much dead.
It just never clicked. I play and play, all day, sometimes all night, and I have drastically improved, but It just never clicked. I lost almost all of my games tonight, just like every other night. I started to hate Cammy, and couldn’t understand how anyone could do good with her. Maybe it was my confidence? Expecting to lose every fight, not even knowing who the opponent picked yet?
Frustrated, and ready to just give up on Cammy, the revelation came. I’ve gotten myself into my opponent’s face before, and I’m not bad at mixing up the offense, I just would still get pounded on every time. But not this time.
I started saying to myself how I was, “Gonna get in your space.” My opponent picked Sagat, I didn’t care. I just kept saying how I was going to get in his space, take his space, claim it for myself. And then I found my comfort zone. Right next to him. The confidence came, and I kept going on about how each person I fought, I was just going to steal their space, and keep it, not let them have it, etc etc. Maybe I was going crazy, but it worked.
4 Sagats, a Gouken, Ken, an opponent Cammy, with only one loss to a Dudley, put me back onto my toes, and ready to play Cammy again.
I’m gonna get in your space.
