Ive been playing for like a year and a half or so. Not just casually but really trying to improve. Ive gotten pretty good i believe, but not yet where i want to be. My eyes were really opened this past weekend at final round 8 when i barely made it to buktooth’s last character. Then i lost to Ashley hernandez 3 or 4 times in casual and once in tourny.
I dont have much competition around here. Theres a guy thats a little worse than me that lives about an hour away. But it always such a pain in the ass to get him organized and ready to play for any length of time.
I use C- Blanka/whoever/Sagat…I cant even decide on a third character. Im ok with kim, ken, rolento,vega(claw), Kyo, guile and a few others im sure im forgetting. Ive been trying to make up my mind for weeks, but i just cant seem to.
Now, i know all the combos and can do the links and shit like that with my team. What else do i need to know about them? It seems like everything i do , there expecting. I dont know anything about mixups and tricks and gimmiks with my guys. What is it exactly that i can do in training mode to make me a better player? Popoblo you did it, how can I?
I watch match vids aprox 2-3 hours everyday and spend at least 2 hours practicing. What can i do? I feel very frustrated , because i dont know what else is left for me to practice to keep me from getting beatdown by top players.
I also have no idea what to do against certain characters. Its like i play my guys the same way no matter who im playing against. Ive looked through all the forums, but there doesnt seem to be much about specefic matchups anymore like with the old games. Are they not important anymore? To be honest i like almost a turtle style, kinda like the way wong plays . Not much attacking blindly, calculated risks, and not moving forward too much.
Campbell, you played me a few times last week. What do you think i should do to make my game better?
