Warning huge noob rant incoming
So I guess this is might be more of a rant helping me vent then it is a plea for advice.
Game: KOF XIII
I’m new to KOF the series in general.
I’m getting use to it, but extremely hard adjusting.
I love the game.
I’m not new to fighting games.
I’m currently practicing with a friend every other two or three days for about 2.5-4 hours each time.
I try to be as aggressive as the game lets me.
My current team is Kyo, Clark, Daimon.
Now here comes my rant. I love versing this guy. I also like watching him play because his style is very strategic and interesting to watch. His style is very very counter based. And extremely passive, with very little offensive strategy. Similar in some ways to an original KOF style. The only time I can manage to make him slip up is if I put full pressure on him. He actually has managed to memorize my style to a “tee” and will literally wait for me to throw the first move so he can counter it. This gets me very down at times and actually makes me play worse. Now I feel like the normal answer to this situation is try to be unpredictable, and in very small but strategic ways I am. But I still feel like he knows what I’m going to do. What should I do, how do I get the most out of this situation?
What do I do about his style of play?
What should I be doing when we’re practicing?
And how do I make practicing with this guy fun, enjoyable, and overall a good learning experience?
Should I re-submit this post differently if so how ?
