I couldn’t find any other threads about this, so hopefully this isn’t a repost.
What I’m interested in is knowing if anybody thinks it’s actually worth playing against the computer in fighters (on the highest difficulty of course) and why.
Of course you should do it a few times to see how the game works when you first get it to unlock shit/get a feel for characters. But other than that I personally don’t really see that this is helpful. I mean can you really play the computer to “improve” your skills?
We all know that the computer plays nothing like a human opponent in almost every fighter. We also all know that there’s shit that works against the computer that NEVER works against real people, and shit that works against real people that NEVER works on the computer. So isn’t playing the computer actually training you to be worse at the game?
IMO the best way to beat your opponent is to know what they’re gonna do before they do, and the only way you can do that is by playing your opponent.
I wanna see if there’s any counterpoints to this, or any of you who got where you are today simply by playing the game on hard over and over.
