My Xbox 360 got the RROD almost 2 months ago. Since then, I’ve been trying to stay sharp by playing ST on GGPO. A funny thing happened since doing so…
I really believe that I’ve “Leveled-Up” my game by playing ST on GGPO. The one vs one setup coupled with the array of great fighters from around the world has made me a better player overall I think.
I thought that maybe it could be that GGPO players are not as good as XBL players but many XBL players play on GGPO so that theory is not that reliable. Maybe it’s the switching back to ST Blanka vs HDR Blanka? I’m not sure. I just know that my game has improved to the point that I feel really comfortable in my Boxer, Chun Li and DeeJay matchups. Even the Honda matchups are better except for maybe O. Honda which just plain eats Blanka alive in ST.
I won’t know for sure just how much I’ve improved or if I’ve improved at all until I actually find my way back to XBL.
Has anyone else had a similar experience? Has your game improved by playing ST on GGPO or it is a false sense of improvement dude to the difference in game mechanics?
