Been playing 3S for close to two years now, I play Ken, watched probably a days worth of videos(USA, a-cho, evo DVD’s, etc) but I never learned a thing. Nothing.
I played with a few people online from SRK(check thread in XBL 3S forum), and they all told me the same sthing: I’m a random mofo without a clue. I agree with them, I really dont know much of anything in 3S, and as it tuns out, not even the fundamentals of playing competitvely. The main things I remember are:
-You gotta think before you attack, you’re attacking blindly with hope.
-Gotta feel out your opponent.
-Counter this, counter that, etc…
-Theres more to defending than holding Back.
And it goes on. The thing is, I feel like I’m being guided as if I knew attack patterns abd the like off the back of my head, which I dont. I really dont know anything. If anything, I just turtle all day and attack only when I THINK I have an opening, and still lose.
I love 3S. Its my favorite fighter and I want to be great at it, if not, at least decent/good. Make some friends, stand a chance in tournaments, even if small, make some vids, get into the 3S scene as a whole, and not give up. I’ve put in the time, I just want to see some results popping out, even if they’ve bene taking their time.
I want to learn how to play, but speaking from a total newbies point of view…where do I start? What should I be observing? What am I looking for in my game and others?
