Hello everyone. I’m writing to ask for help on better learning this game.
Here’s the situation: I’ll be attending my first tournament in a month and I need to get better by then. Of course I’m not asking to become a top player in this interim, but I think I really need to improve my game. I’m not really a complete scrub; I know what footsies and zoning are and can use them, albeit not on an advanced level. I know the basic stuff, although I wouldn’t mind going through the fundamentals again.
Right now I’m torn between maining either Ryu or Dudley. I’ve been reading the stuff on this site for the past several days now and there’s a lot of good info, but I don’t know what to learn first. There’s just so much material and no script, so to speak, on what to learn first. Do I first review their frame data and learn some option selects, or do I first learn about match-ups?
Also, unfortunately, I can’t play online and there’s pretty much no one around me I can play with. So I’m pretty much on my own. Any tips on how to somehow circumvent that?
Thanks a lot for the attention and patience. I look forward to being a part of this community.
