I only joined this board a short time ago but I feel like I’ve learnt so much already!
I play SFIV with Sakura and today I was able to effectively use bnb combos in the G2 tournaments and if I keep it up I’m sure these combos will become part of my muscle memory. Just a couple of days ago I was convinced I wouldn’t be able to pull this stuff off in the heat of battle. I was even able to pull off shenanigans a couple of times which is pretty satisfying.
No longer does fighting against Blanka completely frustrate me. I played against a Blanka today and completely had his number, just from learning a couple of simple tricks on how to defend against his ball roll attack.
I’ve still got a ways to go, though. Many G2 opponents are tough.
