Not a JROD thread! Corner control thread. Other bad habits. Scared of approaching Wakeup situations.
So, I have this problem, a very bad habit from playing online way too much. I stand outside optimal range when I have someone cornered. I’m not close enough for meaties, those nice - fast close normals, overheads, throw mixups, etc. I’m not even in Kara-Throw range. I don’t realize I’m doing it sometimes.
I always expect something stupid to happen, because it happened before. Wakeup Throw beating meaty normals. Shoryuken. 1 Frame Super. Parry then opened up for anything, like SRK to SHIN SHO damage.
All from variable timing online, frames matter.
Its just like the “Shoryuken Everytime on wakeup” way of thinking:
Nobody remembers when it didn’t work. It will work again this next time to use it. Even if it didn’t work the last time, right before this next chance to SRK. Shoryuken is unbeatable. Try to stop my wakeup Super!
Theres also the other options of do whatever blowups:
They’re close on my wakeup? Not even going to wait to see what they do, Parry x Throw
Its the opposite way of thinking SRK beats everything. Being very wary & overly cautious on approach, way more than you need to be, way of thinking. ClamShell up and be defensive, scared to pressure, waiting around and still get beat. Respecting their wakeup options too much.
Or thru it being online play, the all out stupid snowball,
“That worked? fine I’ll do some shit that isn’t supposed to work too” We’ll see who’s a better “jungle striker.”
Playing way faster than you normally should. Never waiting for more information, a better opening, doing stuff to cause mistakes and punish. Half your baits don’t get seen. They might not be paying attention. They don’t care if you used a normal to Tick, maybe they didn’t even see it hit and went about with their business like nothing happened!
Way long talking about this every which way, so
- Don’t play online
- Live with the consequences
- Play longer sets, not just 1 -off games where you’ll never ever see that player again
- Work on setups, not just blockstring, meaty, combos but walking up & dashing up timing to be more air tight and know wakeup timings better (that will also vary by character! & if they Tech Rolled!!)
What else can I do to start making me think - I’m going to take care of my opponent in the corner, on wakeup, the game is over now that they’re in the corner?
I learned the game (very) wrong. How do you forget everything you know and start over, kinda thing.
I also have way more bad habits & better bump that old thread.
