okay, so I’ve been playing sf4 for quite some time now and I’ve hit a plateau (around the 2kpp range if thats any indication of skill) but i feel that theres just some piece of information that I and the rest of the people that have plateaued are missing that would help to elevate our game.
For example, everyone starts out a scrub or whatever and the next step from theres is to learn like fundamentals i.e. THINKING, anti airing, why jumping is bad, footsies, bnb and punish combos. i feel like, at least in my experience (maybe because when i learned this stuff i had a group of people offering guidance on things i could do to get better) that either learning these things offer the greatest strides of improvement OR that the next step is kind of obscure and was wondering, if anyone could enlighten me (and in doing so on this forum the rest of the community that is struggling with the issue) on what exactly those next steps are? I feel that i have been at or around this level for an exceptionally long time and that i must be missing something and part of me feels as if what I’m missing is right under my nose, but if anyone would be able to shed some light on/ provide some sort of guideline on what people should do once they’ve gotten a feel for the game at this somewhat intermediary level, i (and I’m sure everyone else) would greatly appreciate it.
Also: my reason for posting this here and not in deferral discussion is due to me not knowing what the next steps were and if they were character specific or not, and being that juri is the character that i am working on currently, i figured that i might as well ask here.
And if anyone also would like to share what they learned to get past this level of play, and (if they can) how they learned it) i feel that might be of some help as well
