So to clarify I’ve been playing SF since I was 10 with SF 2 and I’ve played most games including MvC CvS and even SvC. Something I noticed with my gameplay, or at least when it comes to win and losses, is that I love low tier characters. With IV I’ve stuck mainly to low tiers because they’re playstyle seemed different to me. Hakan, Seth (although hes mid-high now) Rose, Gouken, etc. Recently I dont know if its been AE being broken or me just being in a slump but I’m getting murdered lately. Like HARD. My PP went from almost 2000 to below.I’m not sure what it is but i’ve taken long breaks and I’m still dying badly. I’m wondering what my problem is right now and thinking maybe I should take more than just a week off from the game?
Reason I ask is because this is whats been happening. All the characters I love like Hakan (main) Seth (2nd) Rose (3rd) or Gouken (4th) I’ve been getting dominated lately. I couldn’t find anyone who was same region same skill level so I put any skill (this is probably the biggest contributing factor to my ass kicking ive been getting). So today I raged. Hard. I said fuck it and started picking Mid-Midtop- top tiers. So I go out there shotos and twins a blazing. Mashing buttons scrubbing it up and what happens? I face the exact same people of skill level but start flooring them. WTF?!
Keep in mind I don’t use any of these characters (can’t even properly use Yang’s rekkas) and I’m winning. I’m no expert clearly but shouldn’t I still be losing? What am I doing properly with the top tiers that I’m not doing with my beloved lower tiers? Is going all out not thinking the best strategy for me in my slump? How should I change my playstyle to match my top tier performance?
TL;DR I win with high tiers lose with low tiers, I want to win with low tiers ( i main them). What should change in my general playstyle?
