After playing Cvs2 yesterday with a friend I notice that I’m losing to a shit load of REALLY stupid things. Before getting into these things I’ll go over my team, groove, a lil bit of my play style, etc.
P groove: Kyo, Cammy, R2 Sagat
I never jump in, and I play EXTREMELY patiently, being taught by LTB :o. I’m probably the youngest player in my area at 17. I don’t got my license so I don’t really play against competition. I only play in the training mode to get my execution down and such. So therefore I’m not getting practically ANY competition. Some things I have to begin to get better at are:
Taking advantage of situations when they are merely handed to me. I must get it through my thick skull that when a person misses me with a DP…I should super not THROW my opponent
Stop relying on parrying as much as I do
Stop playing on my stupid Playstation 2 dual shock controller!!! Switching from controller to Arcade stick is such a huge adaptation that I can’t pull off my combos. therefore my execution is horrible
There are a handfull of other things that I know I need to practice however these two weaken my game quite a bit. However if you guys could put some input on the following problems I’m having…that’d be greatly appreciated.
- I know how to play footsies pretty well, however I am very suceptible to rolling. After my opponent rolls, I either
A. try to throw them in the middle of their roll, or
B. throw out a s.lk to stop them in their tracks. However…When this happens my opponent does:
What the hell am I supposed to do against this random crap?
I’m having the hardest trouble against people who throw out hadoukens. Since I use P groove, I mainly parry the hadouken…however at the same time I see Iori jumping, or dashing towards me. This gives my opponent major benefits. Kcxj taught me that I need to create weaknesses in my opponents if they aren’t giving them to me. Therefore I’m doing the exact oppisite in that they are zoning ME! When my opponents are up on life, their main strategey is to throw tiger shots all day till time ends…What am I to do!?
Wake up DP/special just kills me. What can I do to stop being hit by these things? Should I let off of my opponent when he has meter? Once I do this I start being baragged by a bunch of hadouken/tiger shots.
Cammy’s spiral arrow into Cannon spike is getting the best of me. Every time that Cammy does a nicely distanced Spiral arrow, I try to keep cool and back off cuz she has good recovery (when distanced). However sometimes i try and sweep her with my Sagat, and Kyo…however she always hits me with the cancel into cannon spike. I’ve tried hitting her with a DP of my own…and that seemed to work. However my opponent switches me up and does no Cannon spike after the spiral arrow :mad:. So what should I do? Lay off of her?
These are my main problems…I hate being killed by scrubs like this…I know I’m quite newb to be hit by these things…however as I said before…if you could help me out, that’d be great.
