I’ve tested my theory out over and over again and with difficulty at the highest setting: Survival mode is still way too easy, but I don’t have this issue in arcade/training mode(though even in those modes, the AI in TvC is definitely well below what it is in SSF4 or MvC3, for what that’s worth.) I’m a very green player and started playing fighting games for the first time since the 90s less than six months ago. My execution needs a bit more polishing, I haven’t learned tag team dynamics in TvC or MvC3 very well at all yet, and I generally get destroyed in online matches(probably more than 80% of the time, since I’m not even used to doing so.) When it comes to beating survival mode, though, it’s incredibly easy, as if the difficulty just stays at the lowest for that mode.
Okay, enough parentheses from me. Anyone have an idea what I might be doing wrong? In survival I barely even get attacked by the CPU, but in Arcade/Training I’ll get comboed for ten seconds over and over(a good thing in this case) and not even KO one of the opponents. Thanks in advance for any tips.
