Hi I recently started playing SF4. After getting beaten by Cody players repeatedly I tried playing against the CPU Cody to get a feel for his moves. But after several hours I still wasn’t able to consistently beat the computer. That bingo punch just seems to go through all my moves (pokes, spirals) and I can’t figure out how to punish it. I know there must be an easy answer because the computer is so repetitive. Can someone tell me how to beat the computer Cody easily (on Hard at least) and deal with that Bingo? I tried playing Rose as Cody to see what the CPU would do, but I was able to beat Rose on Hard just by spamming the same Cody move over and over (despite never playing him before), so that wasn’t very informative.
I guess Yun is another one I always lose to, he just seems to move so fast I can’t tell what is happening. So it’s hard to google the solution to that one.
Another question I had is about battle points. I’m already rated “D+” as Rose online, but I feel I’m a D player, or whatever the worst rating is. Yet when I lose my battle points never go down. I’m worried that eventually I will have a higher grade like C+ and then everyone I play will be 10x better than me. That would be a waste of everyone’s time. So do bad players eventually end up always playing against too strong players, or am I worried for no reason?
