I’ve been a Zangief player for all of Street Fighter 4 and Super, and I’d say I was decent, about 4kpp, but I’ve decided to pick up a new main and I chose viper. I just didn’t like having a character with so many unwinnable matchups. I know it will take months to learn her, but I’m up to the task.
Playing Zangief, while helping my footsies, mixups, and overall thinking aspect of the game, his execution requirement was pretty low. Now with Viper, I’m struggling to even do her most basic things.
I know a sj burn kick is down down back up forward, kick, but when I try to do the motion my inputs are comical. I’m talking like down, down back, up, down, forward. Any advice from any of you guys that were this bad to start? I have a 2 month break coming up with no job or school, and I’m going to be in training mode with her 10+ hours a day, but I can’t even get started with her because of how comically bad and unfluid my motions are. I’d love some suggestions on how to get her basics down.
I know there are tons of threads out there on the joystick movements for a bk, but I simply can’t input them. Is there a starting point I should be going from? Should I just practice the motion over and over? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
