So a buddy of mine recent got 3SOE for PS3 and we played a few matches online. It’s said that to be good at this game you have to be random, and boy was he random lol. Even though we each won about half of the sets we played, I feel I lost due to some Shanigans that I didn’t know how to block.
He played Chun-Li 90% of the time and his primary way to attack was just axe flipping, Down+Roundhouse, and that attack where she jumps on the other side and kicks you (how do you block that attack?). Chun’s moves already have really good priority and when I lost I kept getting trapped in a loop of him doing “down HK, flip” and it does a lot of damage. Tried parrying the axe thing, but the timing is tricky online.
I could have won a lot more since he tries to play her as a charge character in this game and I began to lost when I approached and didn’t know how to deal with her high priority moves. He’ll just camp in the corner, hold down-back, and wait for you to push buttons to either mash out that d+hk OR accidentally get the flip and the I get hit and trapped in something I never encountered and therefore don’t know how to get out of. If I just do down-back like him all day and space him with moves, I can win, but I get no satisfaction just standing at the edge of the screen just waiting for the time to run out since winning/playing that way is so lame and defeats the purpose of playing casuals for fun imo.
It’s most likely one of those things that’s so easy to beat that I just don’t know. I SHOULD have saved a video of it, but I wasn’t thinking and exited out of the game when we finished.
