Well, i’ve been playing as Gief pretty much the start of Street Fighter IV. I’ve learned a lot of punishing moves and new combos. I started to get better at him and now only use him.
Most of my matches end up with the same type of match-ups (gajillion of fireballs coming at me). I just learned that I jump a lot and use the GH too often. i feel like i have hit the wall with Gief! On PSN i’m only at 11000+ GP and that’s only cause I’m actually “playing” the game more often. I’m at 1700+ GP on PC with the madcatz controller (totally different button mapping). Seems easier to use but I’m so used to the PS3 button layout that I keep making mistakes.
So many “good” players use the fireball tatics on me and I just can’t beat them. It is still frustrating for me. Should I be doing more training than just throwing myself in matches?? I’m starting to learn the c.mk --> spd/atomic buster/final atomic buster. It works so well and it actually takes about almost 50% of the opponents life. I’m having trouble with the madcatz controller. I just can;t seem to 720 after a FADC. It comes out sometimes and other times . . . no (when I really need it to come out). Do you think it’s due to the lag on the internet? I feel that it is because I can pull it off 95% of the time on PSN. I dunno . . . . love using Gief but i think i gotta start learning or re-learn a Shoto and Dictator.
