So I am more of a new player. Despite having played Third Strike, several versions of Street Fighter 4 and Street Figher X Tekken I would still call myself not really experienced. Mostly because I never really tried to become good in them and played them more casually. I want to change that now though.
The problem I have is to decide who to main. I played the majority of the cast so far and I definitely have my favorites but I can’t seem to make a final choice. I prefer to learn the ins and outs with a single character instead of diverting my efforts among multiples which puts me into this awkward spot.
On a different forum I asked people if I should go with Cammy or Karin and pretty much every response I got was in Cammys favor citing things like better AA, less difficult combos, good footsies, etc. basically saying she is easier to play which will help me learn the game faster. After playing for a bit I can definitely see now that Karin may not be the best choice for a newbie like my no matter how much I like her as a character.
Now it’s between Cammy and Chun-Li though. I was never much into Chun-Li in previous Street Fighter games but for some reason I really like her in this one. Can’t even tell you why exactly. I have noticed already that Chun-Li demands a bit more execution skills to really pull off some impressive stuff which I honestly don’t quite have yet but on the other hand she also has great normals and isn’t utilizing those one of the fundamental things I should learn and master first?
So which character I should go with it? Which character would be a better choice for a newbie who wants to learn the basics and improve himself?
