Hey everyone. As the title of the thread goes I am looking for some help with SFxT because I just recently got into the Street Fighter games and although I’ve never considered myself a hardcore fighter gamer I have played the Soul Calibur games all my life and a bit of Tekken on my PSP. I was able to fight in Edge Master on SC difficulty although I’ve never been able to really pull some super long and damaging combos. What I did was just use a lot of long range attacks with kilik and lots of grapples. But enough of that. Anyways I just got SFxT 2 days ago and I am literally trying my best to learn the ropes of the game. I tried all characters. Yes, every single one. And the ones I’ve been most comfortable playing with are Poison, my main and Ryu OR Jin. Although I’ve had more success with Jin lately. As I was saying, I’ve been getting my ass kicked on medium difficulty and I find this irritating cause I just can’t find a working tactic.
I know the basic stuff like cross character special (I forgot the name of the terms but it’s when both characters do their special), specials for each character, grapples, changing characters in the middle of a fight, using a launcher mid combo and switching the partners. Some projectiles. Just really basic stuff. But things that I can’t do are super long combos that people manage to do online and I just can’t seem to find a way to create one with my characters. This is not like Tekken or Soul Calibur at all. Those games are definitely easier cause they have all their combos in their command list. In here in Street Fighter the command list only shows the supers, special moves etc. But it doesn’t show how to do combos. I am extremely inexperienced with SF and at this point I think that you can create your own moves and combos unlike Tekken where you have some combo commands that you can follow. I’m probably wrong on the SF thing but that’s why I’m asking for help. XD Also I would like to learn some of the fighting gamers use like BnB which I think it means Bread and Butter but I’m not sure what exactly does that mean here in fighting games. Any help is appreciated.
TL;DR: I need help getting better at SFxT and SF in general cause I play as if this was Tekken or Soul Calibur. Also help with the fighting game lingo. And the terms and stuff I should know to take this more seriously.
