To be specific, roughly how many hours did you need to put in to go from completely new to being what you considered proficient, or above average? I realize that can have a broad range of answers, and that people who have been playing for many years will have a different curve as well.
But to go from more or less completely new, to get to the point of being able to land good length combos consistently, learn match-ups, frame data, frame traps, links, etc. etc., about how many hours would you say that you put in? And how did you go about it? Time spent in training, working on character specific trials, online matches?
I ask mainly because I’ve made some improvements coming from not being entirely new, but having really only played casually with friends, and I’d like to continue improving. But I’m starting to feel like I might be hitting a wall. I don’t mind putting in the time to get better, as I’m well aware it doesn’t happen overnite, but I am curious as to how much work some other people have put in to get to where they are. Hopefully hearing that it took other people a lot of time will help me feel a bit less discouraged.
