Hey guys! I’m new to fighting games, but got SF4 a month ago because a friend and was not bad but then i stopped playing for two weeks and got SSF4, which i have had for 4 days. I completely suck and i will admit it. Im still trying to learn execution, footsies, links, etc.
So here are my questions
I have no idea what to do when someone sits in a corner and waits for me to come. If im using a character that can’t shoot fireballs what should i do? If i just block i will recieve chip damage and i’ll lose if time runs out so i know thats not an option.
I seem to always get beat by people who charge at me and apply pressure second i get up. I just mash until i can hit them. What should i do at this point? I use dudley, gouken, and im going to take up ken too.
How should i start out ? After i get better with execution what should i learn? Combos, footsies, match-ups?
If you can add me on PSN and help me a bit i would be grateful, my PSN is AccelerationZ. Also i know it takes a while to get good, but i see most people have fightsticks, should i get one? Can you become pretty good without it?
