Hows your experience so far in comparrison to G2?
So far in my experience it is tougher, and Ive only faced 1 Ryu . though it could just be an a coincidence and Ryu will be back in full force next time.
I wish they would hide the GP of your opponent, I totally psyche myself out. My first fight was a 38kGP Ryu, I was like shit, this dudes gonna pound me (ala my first foray into G2). I ended up taking the rounds 2-0. pretty soundly. but overall I played about 15 matches, and all my opponents, were much better than the garden variety g2 player (not one of them ever bit on a focus bait on their wake up, I was like what the hell, thats usually good for at least a couple punishes in a match). Unless I just happened to get 15 good players in a row, those people that say G1 is just like g2 are on crack.
It didnt help for my nerves either that my points happened to work out that I got into g1 1pt over 15k. I was like I dont want to be the loser in g1 with less than 15k gp :).
played some more last night… seems to be a wider range of character selection in g1, but I thought that in g2 also, then the Ryu bus came into town. I am seeing alot of sims (and I swear to god every sim match has noticeable lag).
