Hey, us new zealanders actually have a fighting game forum!
NZism - Index
Join up, meet the crew etc! I am going to get my PS3 repaired, and after that I don’t mind spending as much time as you need helping you out. In the meantime, definitely check the other guys out, we have a wide range of skill levels and everyone is super helpful. I’m going to read the thread and edit in my replys to your specific questions now, but felt this is important to post
Add me, my psn is Chocobuny
Characters: Use whoever you feel comfortable with. Honestly, Super Street Fighter 4 is so balanced that you can’t really go wrong. I’m actually practicing dhalsim too, although I’m amazed you do well with him since he is an advanced character to me lol.
Seth is interesting, I know a really good seth that could probably help you out, and I quite enjoy seth myself. He has a lot of styles of play, I like to get in and just start doing mix ups, making the opponent guess what I am going to do, although I have seen great Seth play from defensive seth players.
Fei Long is an awesome character. I know a few guys who are good with him. He is such a good all around character, and although I suck with him, my main character Cammy is similar in the sense that they both want to get inside and deal there damage. So I’ll simply this a bit.
Seth: Mix ups
Fei Long: Offensive/Balanced
Nothing stops you from using more than 1 character by the way. I enjoy both Dee Jay and Cammy, and currently Dhalsim. I can play almost anyone, albeit at their most basic level. Anyways I’ve been rambling for a bit so I am excited for you and hope to see you online soon! (Once I get my blasted PS3 fixed)
