Firstly, hello to everyone! First time posting on this forum, so please excuse any mistakes I make.
I am still very new to fighting games. I have been playing SFV for around a week now, and before that I played SFIV… for around a week. Fighting games have always been something I have liked the sound off, but been a little afraid of playing in-depth. That being said I have rather fallen in love with world of SF. I love the wonderfully diverse cast of characters, and it’s also nice to play a game where I need to build up my skill. There are no easy options, it’s all about having fun, learning the game and getting better.
This is why I am curious as to see how long it took people to believe they were getting good at the game. When I say good, I mean decent really, not ‘top of the leader board’ style of skill, just comfortable in your abilities. Did it take you a month? Two? Over a year?
For me, I am nowhere near the level I think I could be called ‘good’ at the game. My win ration is something 1/5 fights, and I am ok with that. Slowly I feel I am getting a little better at pulling of some of my characters moves, seeing what my opponent is planning and sometimes trying to find a way to stop them. It would not surprise me if in a years’ time I am still struggling with all this, but that’s alright, I am enjoying the game and that’s what matters most. Though it does not help that, at the moment I am torn between Laura and Chun Li as mains. I enjoy playing both, though seem to have a better win ratio on Chun Li. Juri was my favourite character in SFIV, so there is a very good chance she will be my main when she is finally added.
