Hey guys, i’ve been playing SSF4 for a good 6/7 months now, playing an array of characters starting with gouken, moving to cody and then now using Makoto/Bison. I have a good understanding of the basics (teching, plinking, links, fadc) and have reached a max of 1500pp online.
Now for my point, ive picked up Makoto about 2 months ago and i LOVE HER. I love the way she plays and have grasped some basic combos (hayate cancels, ex corner fukiage into tsurugi etc) however i am struggling a lot against the newer players (surprisingly) who are extremely random in their inputs. I seem to have trouble knowing when to use what normals to keep the pressure on safely, as i keep gettin shoryuken mashed out of all my pressure. What i would like from you guys is some advice into how you all improved playing her and what i should focus on/what my weaknesses are.
I have set up a youtube channel to document my progression and also to provide a somewhat entertaining insight into the mindset of lower level players like myself. If you get the chance please look through the two videos i have currently posted (more will be added also) and comment either on the video/this post with some constructive advice.
I am aiming to get her to atleast 1000+pp and hopefully be able to stay there if possible.
Here are the links to the videos:
And for anyone who wants a quick video of myself putting on a solid performance:
Thanks in advance.
