Input question

How do higher level players go about their inputs in regards to the joystick? I tend to hold forward regardless if im doing an attack the asks for a neutral input and I’m not sure this is the right way to go about it. On top of that i tend to hold back all of the time when im doing neutral normals. Are either of these a potential hinderance or should i keep doing it?

holding back isn’t a terrible idea if you’re going for a link, because if you hit it too early, you block the reversal DP or whatever.

it really depends what you want to do, and what kind of command normals your character has, but holding forward isn’t too big a problem most times.
