I don’t know if this is common among the people here at srk, but online play on xbox live can be the most frustrating thing in the world. I’ve been playing Akuma for a long time now, and I feel I can play him very well. When me and a group of my buddies get together and play it is fun and I actually pull off good FADC combos and place my WotRD well. But when I get online it is a whole different world. I got to the rank of B with 5000 BP and about 1600 PP then all the sudden everything came crashing down.
I went from 5200 BP and around 1500 PP to 864 PP and 4674 BB in one session. Out o f 30 games I lost 18. Some of the loses were to players that were obviously new/bad but I don’t know what was going on.
I have trouble landing his BnB online mostly due to people turtling and poking constantly. I can land it when I get a good cross up or a demon flip kick but most of the time they just block my demon flip kick, which I try to tick throw them. I supposed being Akuma is a disadvantage online, seeing as literally 80% of the people I play against are Ken or Ryu.
I know I’m not the best Akuma in the world, but I feel like I should be doing better online. Anyone have any advice or experiences they would like to share about online gameplay? I’m just a little frustrated at the moment and I feel like there isn’t anything I can do to improve my Akuma game. Thanks.
