I picked up this game like 2 days ago, hoping to get good, learn the basics and the metagame sometime. I played SF4, I was okay at that. I won matches but didn’t know anything about frames or hitboxes and such. But goddam, I have played like 50 matches online and Ive won 1… seriously.
I play Akuma mostly and Adon a few times. I hit training mode alot to learn combos, which I can nail okay in training when I get my inputs down, but online I cannot get into any kind of window to do combos. The only damage I can actually rely on is wakeup damage or just spamming an uppercut for counter damage.
I decided to get into street fighter after playing MK (which Im pretty good at) so maybe im accustomed to MK gameplay and thats messed me up (kinda like the idea how people who play Halo use a completely different playstyle to those who play CoD, and going from CoD to Halo is a bad idea) or maybe I just shouldn’t play this game…
How can I get better at this game without having to go to local places and fight people? (Im in the UK, and I don’t know of a single place which has this kind of environment) I think the main trouble im having is gettin basics down, I mean combos are easy to do and look at on paper, but in a match I get pooped on, and have no chance of doing said combos. Anyone have any good advice?
P.S. Sorry if this doesn’t make much sense, Im super tired.
