Posted this in the Akuma thread, so sorry if this is redundant but decided to post here as there would be definately have more exposure on the main 3s thread. Very green akuma player here whos played for about 8 months but still stuck behind that glass ceiling. tried all strats I’ve seen online but punishment from others then abounds. kind of hard as when I start getting overly punished for trying, hard to reinforce the use of such strats ( its kind of like pavolovs dogs where if I dont see a positive reinforcement or effect when using these strats then I am going to be scared to use them… u know what I mean? )
cant seem to push my game further, but seeing the great masters themselves walk all over certain match ups (including ones to their disadvantage) really gives me that aspiration to do more. So basically looking for really experienced Players (preferably ones who play Akuma main but still open for anyone) to play me and give me a few tips. now I believe I am pretty infamous online, and go by the handle Patashnikk (ringing any bells guys,?) and a I know a few really good players just dont even want to bat a eye in my direction (I get turned down by expert players alot on ranked… yea.).
Akuma is tough to learn and if used wrong can be cheap I know so I dont think i am a online fav, but I really want to play akuma neigh-profressionally, I pretty much eat,sleep (S***T) 3s right now but not really learning anything and I think I learn better through practical there and then lessons rather than read things up things online ( though that does defo help dont get me wrong but putting that to practise in the right suitations usually means being punished and players can see I am trying to use a certain blockstring or demon flip mix up… so yea)
Iknow practise practise practise is a given, but i think playing actual good players and not ones that are able to exploit game mechanics to win ( I mean in a cheap way ofc, ) would definately push my game.
thanks for your time guys.
