I am quite new to Street Fighter (less than a year) but I do play quite a bit and I play mostly Ken (not since one year tho it’s been like two months max, I switched because I wanted a character that I like that would be in SF5).
Since my beginnings I have made quite decent improvement as far as combo goes, I can FADC fine and I can do small links pretty well too with Ken. The problem is that this is true only for training mode.
Once I get into a real game it’s like I’ve never trained, I could have trained one hour with a dummy on random block to do H.DP + FADC + ultra if not block or backdash if block,then it’s the real game and I forget to do it or I fail my FADC.
Then I can get a punish, I know a good super easy one but instead I do a grab because it’s my old habit from when I didn’t know anything at all. I loose so much damage.
I can’t do a single tight combo and I fail half of the super easy ones. Since I can’t do link my way of starting combos is always with a jump which I know is terrible, and I even fail those sometimes.
There is litteraly combos that I have 99% success rate in training that I fail in games. I kinda just panic and do half random stuff.
I also train to hit confirm and to confirm counter hits and I can’t do any of these in a real game. Granted I suck at confirming counter hits even in training so it’s not that surprising for this one.
It’s really starting to piss me off so I wonder if it’s only me or if it happened to you too? If so how did you get over it? Just playing a lot?
