How do you keep your skills from going down?
A simple question right? Wrong. Let me explain my situation.
Over my short (as compared to people who started playing when the game first came out) time playing CvS2 I have used many different groves and character combinations. I often have changed my grove, and team set consciously, with the idea in mind that playing x grove will help me work on x aspect of my game.
For example, I played K grove to escape the bad habit of rolling, and doing roll supers.
I played C-grove to work on my ground game, zoning, and patience.
I played Cammy, and Sagat to better understand how those characters work, and find effective ways to beat those characters by watching how opponents beat me. (and so on)
During all of this I have had various levels of competition ranging from alot… (playing every day) to not so much (playing maybe twice a month).
Point: Recently Ive noticed that Ive begun to suck. And I wondered why this was? I think Ive spent too much time not playing the way I wanted to and tried to focus on too many different aspects of the game. Thats to say, I listened to too much advice and tried to take all of it. (this ever happen to any one?)
Hmn… Im rambling now so Ill just open this one up to others, how do you keep from losing skills as you seek to improve/acquire new ones.
P.S I’m going back to the team and grove I love N-Ryu, Blanka, Ken Lets go!
