Hey guys, just made a post in general too.
Im an old player, honestly with not that much experience of fighting games but a huge experience of competative games on PC or consoles.
Been really trying to find out what to play, and I found this gem of a game.
So, I didnt fall for any of the Ken, Ryu, Oni, Balorg posts that people recomend to new players.
And I can already confirm after a day of playing the game that, I have lost to players where I am utilizing around 10 moves, and they are using 2, by playing above characters.
I lost cause I was bad enough not to know how to counter, they won cause they played a very easy character.
It does not matter, it just means I need to up my game, alot.
I bought the game and I have spent around 5 hours in the training room just doing combos over and over and over again:-) Then went a little arcade and online.
I h ave to say that I really like Dudley.
It was the 3rd character I tried in t his game, and I even tried Ken, and I fell for him immediately.
Alben would be another character I can imagine I like since I enjoy grappling, and honestly, with Dudley, in the games I have played so far I dare say that 25% of my total damage in average is from throws. Which I usually land after a machine gun combo.
Im trying to get cork screw into the combos but I cant get it to work.
Im having issues getting the ultras off when I want them, and I need to really learn the basic moves better.
I have focused alot on combos and realize that sometimes, the basic jab might be a better solutoin then trying to do a feint attack followed by a myriad of combos.
havent found any good Dudley guides though. Just list of combos which I know already.
But, is Dudley a decent move for a new player? I have learned him well already but, is he too hard to play vs the easy characters?
i almost ditched him yesterday after meeting a few players that only played Ken, Ruy, Oni or that Makana girl. No offence to good players of those characters but personally I find them lame as hell, of the short time I faced them. But I refuse to play them myself for a cheap win.
Nice game. And Dudley is exactly my cup of tea when it comes to character choice.
But again, is it even a viable choice? Or do you need to be a master to beat a new comer.
What happens when you face hardcore ken, Oni etc players that are very good, and play such a character? Can Dudley stand up to them?
