Alright, we all know the AI in CvS2 sucks hard, and the training mode is definitely lacking in some functionality. Competition is the only way to really get better, but how can we use the training mode to help improve?
Post here in tricks you know of to help improve yourself. For example, record the player doing nothing but walking towards you for the full 10 seconds, and playback. I do this to practice tough links and other ground combos (blankas c.short s.jab xx blanka ball).
Also post any tricks for testing out setups or traps. For example, I was playing around with Hibiki, and wanted to test what a c.roundhouse would setup. A short jump over and standing fierce seemed to be both a minor mixup (jumping over them when down) and a meaty attack when they wakeup. I had kyo recorded to mash crouching jabs, and the s.fierce got him everytime, telling me it wouldnt be interupted by normal attacks. Is there a better way to do this? Maybe spamming blankas fierce electricity?
Please post any tricks or techniques you have for making the training mode actually helpful.
