So I’ve been playing SFxT, and to put it simply, I’ve been losing alot. Like…every single day…every single match…I’ve played…300 matches so far…and of the past…say…175 I’ve played, I’ve lost every single last one of them.
I can watch a match and know wnat my weaknesses are. I eat cross-ups a lot, and I can’t handle pressure. It just seems that every single time I try and apply pressure, I get beat out by the opponents pokes. Every time I try and counter poke, I eat their poke. I try to practice blocking cross-ups, but every time I think its about to cross-up, they land in front and I eat a full combo. I think they land in front, they cross-up…well you get the idea with that.
I’m playing Cammy/Kazuya and I’m just losing my motivation to keep playing. I came from SFIV and played Cammy through all the iterations up to AE 2012, and I know that you’re meant to learn from your losses…but I just can’t seem to. Every single time I try and focus on one thing, I just end up losing. I know that my losses should motivate me…but…for the past 5 days now its just been nothing but lose lose lose lose lose lose lose. And it’s really crushing…
I guess the question is…are some people just not cut out for fighting games? I practice my execution all the time but it never seems to improve. I always crack under pressure, I just can’t seem to stay calm. And no matter what I do, whenever I try and poke or AA a jump in…I NEVER win out. It’s just a little hard to keep motivated to keep trying when I’m just seeing ZERO results.
Any advice on how to keep it together?
