Haven’t posted here in quite some time, took a bit of a break from street fighter after learning and getting ‘decent’ with Oni, but I wanted to return to my ‘roots’ of playing Akuma. I soon remembered the frustration factor of playing Akuma - His low health. It’s sort of a general question for AE but kinda specific due to Akuma’s low health nature but; How do you deal with people that just wont learn? I’ve had people do wakeup DPs/Invincible moves over and over and get punished, then the one time I think they might have learnt… they’ll do another. I appreciate that this is an online thing but it frustrates me because; whilst they’re not maybe playing the game ‘properly’ and just playing it because they want to have some fun, I feel at fault myself for not being able to deal with such things.
The main things that seem to really trip me up are; ‘Random’ wakeup DPs, DPs in blockstrings and that guy that will just focus all day.
I have a fair few videos on Youtube so perhaps that may yield some further flaws in my playstyle.
Should I learn how to deal with these kind of people or should I just put it down to Online?
Thanks for reading, hope it doesn’t seem whiney!
NB. My use of the word ‘randomness’ perhaps isn’t quite correct, I’m more referring to… people doing things when there isn’t really a safe reason to, or don’t appear to be applying any sort of thought process to what they’re actually doing.
