Hey everyone, I’m fairly new to seriously learning fighters. I used to play a ton of Smash, as well as some Guilty Gear and BlazBlue:CT casually. I mained Faust in Guilty Gear and was drawn to him based on his character and personality. I then mained Arakune in BlazBlue and actually learned some combos for Arakune using the DVD that came with it. Would the characters I enjoy be considered Zoners? I’d like to know what kinds of characters I should try and learn in other games. I’m currently learning Peacock in Skullgirls, though I’ve heard that learning a support like Big Band for her would beneficial. I also have USF4 and KOF XIII and I’m not quite sure which characters are considered similar in those titles.
Also is there any suggested process that I should use to getting better in general? I watched a video recently suggesting learning the well-rounded characters such as Ryu to learn the mechanics more thoroughly. If that will truly improve my abilties over simply jumping into the type of character I like I’m considering putting some time into it. Especially since I can see the value in learning all the characters.
Thanks in advance everyone!
