now I don’t know why there is so very little information about footsies on this site. You hear people drop it here and there but never a fully detailed explanation of it. Let alone how different styles of footsie interact with one another. I know what it is, how its used but I’m seeking a deeper understanding of it from the one I currently know.
personally, I find myself counter hitting properly and judging scenarios BUT when I’m in a spot that isn’t my footsie zone, I tend to move back a lot to gain my proper distancing again. Eventually, there comes a time where I’m trying to create space but can’t because of the corner. Now, I’m stuck in a spot where I have to make a guess @ moving fwd which can certainly be countered. Should I be looking to move fwd during the sequences where I’m not In my best footsie range? Should I always try to fight for the middle part of the screen where the fight starts and move the other guy towards the corner? Defensive footsie in order to gain an offensive advantage is really fucking me up @ the moment.
Is there a best footsie style? Heavily offensive, turtle, the middle ground between the 2, all countering, mixing them all up into 1 strategy etc…
how do offensive and defensive footsies play out during fights?
can one style of footsie easily over whelm another style w\o 2 players ever having the chance to play? intersecting options can counter each other if 2 players have no clue on the other guys tactics.
where in footsie patterns should you look to be dominant?
