I mean comments on my performance and stuff. I tried to apply the advise you guys gave me in the thread I made last time.
June 1 2012, casuals were held in Gamers Lounge HD in Sherwood Place, Taft Ave., Manila, Philippines.
Entire playlist of most matches can be found http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLC29BAC04A0BD424A&feature=plcp but I’ll pick out the ones that are of good note. Namely, my matches and the matches of 2 other good players here.
First match of the day, so both of us were acting pretty borked. Yeah this is the same guy I battled before, the Wolverine-Mag-Nova team.
So many mistakes from both of us here. I can’t even start to point out all of them.
Notable moments here though were my first time actually executing my custom Ammy combo that uses Felicia’s Sand Splash. I think I also pulled off Ammy infinites here, I don’t remember.
Now this guy I battle next, I will admit, kinda sucks. He’s generally slow and is pretty pringles to a lot of things. His offense isn’t optimal and improvement is necessary for him…
…so it losing to him made me feel so bad about myself. You know that feel of losing to players that aren’t as good as you right? Ergh.
Notable things I did here would simply be the Felicia + Hiryu pressure.
Battling against who was probably the best player in there that time, I fortunately won against him in a best of 5 set, going 3-1.
Good Zero and Strange alert. We may have just found the best Zero in the Philippines.
You can see how much I shifted my playstyle to be more defensive here because I seriously don’t want to get hit by his Zero. He knows how to do Lightning Loops well, so I made it a point that he doesn’t get that on me. He has this custom combo which utilizes Dante assist (wait, that isn’t really custom at all).
His Strange is scary too. XF2 even makes it better. He makes so many good judgements and rarely drops his combos.
His Dante, although good in execution as well, seems to lack mixups and relies too much on Helm Breaker->Hammer. It does not help that Dante isn’t really a good anchor compared to others.
Felicia vs. Zero here was basically a case of who gets a clean hit first, so expect a lot of fishing in this.
This was actually the first match of the Team matches. You can clearly see here my lack of experience fighting Hulk. You have no idea how relieved I was when he switched his team. Went 3-2 against him in a best of 5 set.
Another of the team matches, against the next notable player in the field. Aptly called the Philippine Tron, he is known for having a team that rotates around Tron while still packing top tiers at the back.
His Tron is good and is just being held back by her low-tier capabilities. I basically avoided the arms of the Gustaff so much that I didn’t have problems with the Tron at all. His Magneto however is also one thing to fear. He has this sick mixup and setups with Magneto combined with Tron and Wesker. Most notably, he seems to be the only one I’ve seen so far who does tri-dash j.H->fly->j.S for double overhead.
Having anchor Wesker is one thing, but actually being good with him is another. He has the best anchor Wesker that I’ve seen here so far.
Another match with the same guy I said above that needs improvement. I don’t remember this match anymore and I didn’t watch it yet, but I must say he drops a lot of stuff with his Spencer. Too much.
Aside from my matches, do look at the matches of Rice Boy (Zero/Strage/Dante) and TXO C+F (Tron/Magneto or Raccoon/Wesker). I’m not trying to brag, but me being able to outsmart them at times makes me feel good about myself. Sooo happy that I’m actually improving.
Generally, about my own comments on myself:
Lesser and smarter use of Vajra assist now, and my Strider doesn’t suck as much as it did last time (I think), though I could be wrong so please feel free to criticize me.
I don’t understand how I still drop Felicia BnBs too many times. TOO MANY TIMES. That’s the one thing that frustrates me about myself.
Though in fairness, Cat Spike L->s.L works and not Cat Spike L->c.L despite c.L and s.L having only a 1 frame difference, so the timing with her really is strict all around.
Your turn to criticize me guys. Fire away at what stuff I need to improve on
