advice from other beginner thread:
In training, practice your combos: tatsu loops for punishes / big damage
-> THERE IS NO TRAINING MODE. I HAVE TO DO IT LIVE.
learn the ranges of your pokes
-> been learning this, the hard way, ha.
In matches focus on fundamentals. Don’t let yourself jump, don’t let your opponent jump, practice using your pokes, learn how to space things properly and learn how to play footsies.
-> this stuff is more advanced than I need! i’m still trying to land 3 hit combos!
OP is mostly starting out, chances are he can’t even consistently do a dp or fireball, tatsu etc.
-> this is good advice!! i’ve been practicing getting the dps and fireballs down, it’s fucking hard with the old sticks here, sure I could do it easier on my keyboard. i can’t ultra AT ALL.
After you can do that, start practicing cancelling normal moves into special moves
->uhh, is this really the second thing I should learn? i’d rather learn how to do a 3 hit combo or something really easy first…
The way you practice this the most effective way imo, is to break them down in small steps. For example lets say you want to practice cr. lk, cr. lp. cr. mk xx hp shouoken ( xx means cancel), first practice doing the link from cr.lp to cr. mk first, then practice cr.lk cr.lp cr.mk. and eventually do the entire combo. Use the same approach for all combos and basically everything you want to pratice . '
->YES, this is basically what i’m looking for. What are the easiest combos to start off practicing? What areas can I skip out on because they’re more difficult until later?
