I need some help here: Where do you guys draw the line from having fun to picking a good character in most fighting games? I feel like although I do enjoy the fighting style or gameplay of one character, I know I could do a whole lot better by tier whoring and picking a different character to make life simpler for me.
Examples for me: SSF4; I used to play Blanka “seriously” but I would still have fun, then I switched to Dan as a joke. At first it was a joke, then he was pretty fun (and challenging) to play. I decided to actually learn him and I got some decent practice but I get destroyed completely with a record of 3-30 online with him, but playing high level players in quick match probably wouldn’t help either. But playing Blanka I did a whole lot better.
Now with UMvC3, I play X-23, Dr. Doom, and Nova. I love the way that they play, I didn’t care how good they were because I enjoyed doing their combos and the characters themselves. I also didn’t wanna be just another Dante, Akuma, Wolverine, Vergil, Wesker etc. user also. However, I struggle so damn hard to barley get a win with my characters but seeing how “easy” the other top characters are, I question and wonder why I don’t switch sometimes.
Should I just stop screwing around and actually pick “good” characters? Or should I keep getting bodied with characters I like?
