please excuse my bad english, i am not a native.
i plan to get deep into the fighting scene and play competitively eventually, but i have a few questions. i hope some guys with knowledge of the scene can help me.
which game should i play?
which game is considered most competitive / hard to master? which one has the most playerbase? ( i dont want to learn an easy, not so competitive game)
is there a list/sheet about which console/fighting games are played most online?
what are the key differences between the biggest competitive fighting games?
i do not own a console yet. should i wait the few months till the new console generation arrives? will the major series come out on the new consoles, or do you think that the fighting game scene will stay at the “old” console generation?
and which one to get? the new/old xbox or the new/old playstation?
i am from europe. is the fighting game scene big in europe aswell? will i find enough great players online?
or is it possible to play with usa-guys from europe? does the ping-issue (normally about 120 ms from europe to usa) matter at fighting games?
why do street fighter pros play with a fighting stick, but tekken pros with normal controllers? (i saw this on a torunament on youtube)
and why is it worth buying a fighting stick, why is it better than a controller?
thanks for all answers!
