Guts vs. Smarts

I don’t think the poll helps in giving you many intelligent responses. Many are just going to hide behind the tracking of statistics.

Anyhoo, I think it’d be silly to take one over the other, you gotta have both (I-M-O). Both come from experience. I’m often accused of being too “flashy” or “greedy” to which I tend associate with “gutsy”. I always respond to those people with the same philosophy:

“The people who actually go for the sick shit, are the ones that get the sick shit”.

That’s really all I have to say on that.

In 3S, he who guesses correctly the most, wins. If neither guesses or if neither guesses correctly, he with the best strategy wins.


#4

Guts based on smarts is the best answer. But if I had to pick one, I’d go with guts because w/o them this game gets faggoty boring.


#5

I say smarts. Guts leads to a huge bunch of mistakes. Smarts leads to educated guesses.

You can play the game completely techincally, while still going for the “sick shit”. Like unnecessary red parries. :tup:


#6

UltraDavid : I cant agree with u, the better player will win, not the better guesser.


#7

Depends how you play. Fun = guts Win = smarts. Arguably every match takes both, but it depends on your driving factor I’m the guy who wins with a super or wins nothing, and plays Akuma for those tight combos and uses Ken’s back throw in corner for the 1 hit off shippu.


#8

^ Didnt u create a thread about how 3s sucks?


#9

^ heh heh


#10

Yep, but then after the 5 or so intelligent posts in the thread I was persuaded to try it out again. 40 hours of playing later, I’ve developped a taste for it. Besides, it’s the only 2D fighter my friends play with me, nobody wants to play kof 2k2 :sad: .


#11

your friends have good taste, kof is kof


#12

Bunch of gutless nerds, this SRK. :expressionless:


#13

Neither, you just need priority


#14
