Ive been observing this for well over a year and wanted to see if what I saw was congruent enough with what I thought. I believe there is to much emphasis right now put on RCing in CvS2. Now im not talking about the really good players, im talking about the good to average to poor or begginer players. Its seems every week there is a new thread about someone starting CvS2 and wanting advice. Then not but a week later they want to know how to Roll Cancel. It seems people are getting away from the basics and trying to learn the more advanced parts of the game first. IMO I feel unless your efficient at footsies, spacing including throwing ranges, your characters moveset, the groove you play in, learning matchups, and being able to pull off effective combos on a regular basis, then you shouldnt even think about RCing. Ive seen alot of people that go look I can RC, yeah to bad you cant execute a basic combo.
I just feel alot of people try to put to much onto learning RC before everything else. I myself havent even bothered with it because im not comfortable enough with the other parts of my game to even think about roll canceling. Rant Over
