Someone just challenged and played me on hyperfighting Online. My Ken defeated his 4-1 and he nastily quit on me. He had been complaining about my throws and asserting that my play was garbage. He then claimed that killing someone with a throw is not allowed in tournaments and went so far as mentionning Shoryuken.com!
I was shocked as I thought it was commonly viewed that throws were ok in all fighting games. I have told this Xirtam person to come to the forums and ask this question so maybe he will pop up. And his Ken is actually very good. We had some great matches.
So…have I been playing the wrong way all this time?
Apologies if this has been asked a billion times. Several searches for “cheap” in the topic yielded no useful results. (IE: hyperfighting related)
