Critique time. Some bad losses here. Thinking of them as learning experiences.
STREET FIGHTER V DAY ONE CRITIQUE
Notice my progress as the matches evolve. The matches are listed in play order.
Versus Karin (Loss)
Critique: My first fight online. This Karin player is really solid and experienced. They took advantage of spacing, tripping me when I walked forward, and maximized damage when necessary. It doesn’t help that I’m leaving myself open because I’m not hit confirming. The comeback I had on round 2 is pretty solid but very, very unpolished. Old habits die hard and I busted out lights occasionally on the third round, where I was absolutely destroyed. I need to check the frame data on Chun and see which moves are unsafe.
Versus Dhalsim (Win)
Solid fight on my part and the Dhalsim wasn’t a complete slouch either. He did a fairly admirable job trying to keep me out, but his pattern grew predictable. Buttons were pressed here and it cost me a lot of health. I’m still trying to wrap my head around the Crush Counter system. He did really good on the second round when I did manage to get in. I think a tour of the lab will prove useful when testing my moves against Dhalsim’s to see how I can beat some of his moves.
Versus Ryu (Loss)
Absolutely aggravating match. I tried to EX SBK multiple times at the tail end of the first round when being pressured on wakeup. His pattern is predictable and I didn’t manage to anti-air him when I needed to. Good second round for me where I simply outplayed him and exploited his weaknesses and habits, but the third round I playing sloppy all around and I know I can play better than that. I was outplayed.
Versus Cammy (Disconnect)
BRUTAL first round. Outplyaed, out-footsied, everything. Holy fuck. Nothing more I can say. Sound round was going more in my favor until I was disconnected. I would have no shame losing against that Cammy and I need to train against their tactics in the lab tomorrow. Seriously, what the fuck? Backhand looks like it’s plus on block.
