Just was thinking…
How long does it take the average player to switch their main character to something better as the game said character is in enters into a new sequel?
For example, I’ve stuck with Lei since Tekken 2. Ups and downs. Way downs. But I’ve only ever reluctantly just put him to the side while I work with other, better and more improved characters as the series changes. Yet, I’ve known, if I need to win more consistently, I need to pick up others.
Most people feel like they should stick with the character they know the best, even through sequels, but there is a point where switches should be made.
Where is that point?
And what is the time frame difference between top tournament players choosing a new character and just good players choosing a new character?
I would think there is a certain state of mind that makes one think that their main character from two years ago should still work out in the next generation. Do serious players still stick with that mentality?
And is there a point in certain games that are overhauled where a person’s main character from the previous game is too different from the top-tier in the new game that there is no moving forward? Just sticking with the tried and true?
Anyway, I think I’ve been drinking. Hopefully someone understands me.
