I’m bad, but I’m not awful I don’t think (ranked around 1050 and slowly moving up). I’m in no means bragging, just trying to give anyone a sense of where I am.
I’ve played 2220 matches so far, this was the game that showed me what fighters were all about. It’s been on and off since Jan of 09.
I don’t have a main character. I usually play random because most of the cast is fun to use (except T Hawk, and my dhalsim is iffy).
I play on 360 pad.
One thing I can never get the hang of is when to throw fireballs and when to look for anti air DP. I generally wait when they are in jumping range. But then sometimes they never ever do so the instant I throw a fireball, I get jumped in on.
Blanka has a weird jump thing that hits way further than it looks, and Vega’s is too fast for me to react too most of the time. Yet, when I play Blanka, it seems like good people can fireball me out of the air with anyone. I even try to change when I jump but that doesn’t make a difference.
Guile can hit from almost full screen so I don’t know how to zone him with any command fireball characters. I mean, if he does the same thing every time then I can, but I can’t react to his jump ins for some reason so I get hesitant to throw fireballs, but his sonic booms recover faster so he can do more
A lot of the time, I get hit before my DP comes out.
Another thing I can never get is jump in combos. I land a lot of jump ins but I almost always get reversaled or thrown out of the next attack.
I feel like there is something wrong with the way I’m approaching something.
How does Chun and Bison deal with constant air pressure (like multiple Gief body splashes, Sagat jumping short, Blanka jumping short, etc)
I have no idea how to fight Gief with most the cast. He gets a Lariat, and it’s done. Random amount of pokes into SPD and with charge characters you only get one chance.
I also sometimes have trouble with Honda. I don’t know how to get him out of torpedo for most characters.
I also have some other questions and problems, but I can’t remember them atm. I’ll post them as I remember them.
If anyone really good and experienced and someone who is willing to help and doesn’t mind sharing “secrets”/tips would like to help me and play a lot of rounds with me and tell me what I’m doing right and wrong, that’d be cool. Just post your GT or message it to me or something. I have no mic yet.
