Hey guys, I just registered on the forums. Now for a little background on me. My first fighting game was MK9, I played it pretty casually. Learning a couple combos for a few different characters,(Smoke and Reptile mostly) and just played against some RL friends who were even worse than me somehow. I loved watching tournaments and always thought it would be cool it actually learn how to play at a high level.
Now I’ve just purchased SF, watched NCR all weekend, and I’m trying to decide which character I want to main and basically learn fundamentals of fighting games on. I really like Vega, he looks very interesting, I’ve played through some of the challenges on him. But my question is should I be using Vega to learn on? Do you guys think there’s a more suitable character for someone pretty much completely green to the fighting game scene to learn on? Or does it even matter at all? Also any tips you guys have for someone brand new looking to get into fight games and eventually start going to meetups and tournaments would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance for all the responses!
