Just to familiarize you all with my situation, I’ve been playing street fighter since SFII (like probably most of you). I haven’t taken any of them seriously due to a lack of a community in my area (Toms River, NJ). When I first started playing SFIV I chose guile because he was my character in SFII. Since then, I’ve migrated from Guile to ELF to Gouken to Ryu. I probably should’ve started with a shoto now that I think about it. Anyway, There is a lot of information out there but from the perspective of a semi new player it seems like a lot. I’m wondering what information I should be focusing on now and what I should be focusing on later. Like footsies before I start worrying about frame data.
How should I be practicing? Should I be going into practice mode and practicing my combos over and over until I do them in my sleep and then trying to apply them to my matches?
Basically, I want to make sure I’m thinking the right way about street fighter. I don’t want to get into the habit of doing something incorrectly or even inefficiently. Anyone who can help me get better, either through advice or actual playtime would be greatly appreciated.
