Serious question. What the fuck is up with online play these days?
Do people get points or a gold star for doing double and triple shoryus in a row, for doing random supers from half screen, from doing hurricane kicks back and forth like a fucking retard because that works in lag? Is picking Honda and switching between mashing hands and doing full screen headbutts or 3 buttslams in row fun? Is it? It sure seems like it must be, because it seems like most of the people I run into these days, even if I know they’re capable of playing better than that, plays like that online.
I’ve never taken online play seriously, but I do try to use it to practice. I try to pretend that it’s offline and use the same tactics I would offline, up until people go into berzerker mode and then sometimes I do too just to try to match it. Because fuck that shit. But win or lose, that’s not fun to me. It’s fucking retarded and an unfulfilling experience.
So seriously, what’s up with online these days? Is everyone just fucking around? Or do people really think they’re outplaying you when that shit works?
