So I’ve been playing SSFIV for awhile. I was playing Ryu to get my basics down and recently decided to switch to Chun. I’ve been putting my time in getting my combos and links going in training, as well as reading about priority of my moves for situations. The big run in I’m having is getting things really moving when I’m playing in matches. I play online (I know…I have a full time job and only have found one other person in my area with a serious SF interest) and just get picked apart. I usually float around 700pp… which is laughable at best. Yet I hold my own from time to time against 2-3K plus player.
I’m having a hard time getting my offense going. I try my best to play a little footsies and I don’t just sit in down back or try to always keep me charge going. I just can never seem to get in on the people who hold downback or relentless rushdowns. I feel that almost every game I’m never controlling the match, I’m always the one just trying to hang on by a thread or just trying to sneak LK in to get some combos going.
Any advice you guys can throw my way? I’ve been reading and watching videos but I just can’t seem to get things going the way I’ve seen or believe I’m supposed to.
