Based on the subsequent amount of posts from the previous attempt to promote a mentor program for fellow Chun players, I decided to start up a new thread as the original author is MIA.
Q: What is the primary goal behind the Training thread?
A: The main objective is help players become more aware of their strengths and weaknesses and ultimately help them develop into more formidable players, some of which have aspirations to compete in the tournament scene.
Q: Who should participate in this program?
A: Everyone who isn’t wholly satisfied with their current performance is welcome to participate, but it’s important that you recognize mentors are not going to “spoon feed” you knowledge that should already be second nature. Too many players lack the proper understanding of “footsies” and/or use of their normal moves. These are things that can’t actually be taught and can only be developed with dedication and experience. Thus, it’s assume that you have at least intermediate knowledge and don’t fall in the group of players who are still trying to graduate from SF 101.
Q: I plan to regularly go to tournaments, should I still participate?
A: Respected players like MagnetoManiac will tell you that playing online can be a huge risk and be detrimental to your ability to perform well offline. The simple truth is: online play is plagued by latency and even on the “best” conditions, Chun plays very different offline (console and arcade respectively). So if you’re going to local events on the regular and you have an active scene, you really ought to stay as far away from online play.
** This time, I encourage mentors, whenever possible to document the feedback directly here on the boards, in similar fashion as the format adopted on the XBL Training discussion featured on the Ryu boards.
Basically the author should list who they fought against and any characters used in the session. Also, whenever possible – give specific examples.
Example: Dime (Chun, Akuma) vs. Dae (Chun, Honda)
Great use of FA, but you missed a lot of opportunities to punish whiffed moves. I recommend using more st. strong when Honda is in range to prevent him from advancing. blahblahbblah… you get the idea
*** Several members offered their candidacy as mentors – but I am unaware who is still actively participating, so I’ve revised the list based on who is considered to be a “regular” in the Chun boards. Send me a PM if you are offering your support as a mentor or apprentice, do not post it here… This helps to reduce thread clutter and keep it focused specifically on feedback only. Failure to comply will result in your posts getting reported and lead to infractions!
NOTE: ALL PLAYERS ARE FROM NORTH AMERICA UNLESS STATED OTHERWISE.
