Hi every one, I’m an American serving overseas and currently stationed in Italy. I’m a huge fighting game fan and currently playing SF4 heavily. However, I’m having a very difficult time raising my Battle Points in SF4 beyond 3500. By no means do i have a lack of opponents. Frankly i get challenges in the arcade mode all the time. Unfortunately the connection of most challenges is one bar or less. These challenges usually come from players back in the states. To save myself the frustration with lag, i usually decline these matches.
On the flip side, connection with other European players (French, German, Spanish, Italian, UK etc) is usually great! 3 bars are better is the norm. Reluctantly, I haven’t met many EU players in the 3000 battle point range. I’m not saying they are not out there, I just haven’t had the privilege to play most of them. And while i love to play other EU players, most are novices and winning those matches does little to improve my Battle Point score.
I’m a firm believer that in order to improve your skill you have to play other players either at your skill level or higher, so I’m making this attempt to reach out to any other SF4 competitors in Europe around this skill level. I would love just to get in some competitive player matches and hopefully learn and improve my skills. My PSN gamer tag is SwiftInTheNight and I’m usually on between the hours of 1700-2200 GMT+1.
If SF4 is not your fancy, i certainly entertain other PS3 fighting game matches in Soul Caliber 4, BlazBlue, HD Remix, and Tekken 6. You can also find me on the www.2DFighter.com community with the same gamer tag, SwiftInTheNight, where i play Third Strike often. If interested please feel free to send me a PM either here on SRK or on the PSN. Thank you all and i look forward to your challenges. :china:
