So I started playing SSF4 (Not AE) about 1 and a half months ago, and am absolutely loving it. So I’d like to say I’m pretty good (I can beat the CPU on hard consistently and most of the time V.Hard, and I can now beat any of my button-mashing friends about 8/10 times) but I know for sure I’m not. I’m looking to drastically improve my game. I’m looking to buy a fightstick (I want something that is pretty decent, any suggestions are welcome) because I know in the long run, that’ll help my game. I am looking to main Akuma/Adon/Ryu because I like the way they play and my favourite pro players use them (Infiltration, Gamerbee and Daigo). So I’ve started looking at frame data and watching some online tutorials and I think I’m starting to understand the basics (block-block-block and throw out some safe pokes, and if they hit then combo them into a special and then if you can a super/ultra). So I’m watching VesperArcade’s Youtube tutorials and taking notes etc. What I’m asking, is that am I on the right track? Also should I invest in Xbox Live so I can play online? Any help is welcome.
PS. If I was to play online and got beat pretty bad and then messaged the victor asking what they noticed were weak points about my game and what I could improve, how many people do you think would respond with helpful tips, and how many people do you think would just respond with trolling
It’s a great game and I just want to get better maybe play some tournaments one day
