Looking for some thoughts on this. Anyhow, started using Ken at launch but played extremely casually as I had a lot of other things going on and was looking forward to Ibuki and Juri. Haven’t really spent much time recently playing however the last few weeks I’ve been messing around daily with all three characters, decided Juri isn’t really for me and out of the three, I have more fun playing Ibuki. The problem though is that she’s very technical and despite stream monstering for a few years, there is a huge disparity between my knowledge of the game and my execution, simply put… my execution needs a LOT of work. In terms of ability, I can beat most people under 2k LP however I’ve hit the first wall where I need to learn to maximize my damage output and really need to spend a lot of time hitting up the training mode. Generally speaking though, that wall is looking much more challenging with Ibuki than with say Ken where it feels more like I just need to practice my hit confirms to get more out of him.
At the end of the day, I’m probably going to pick up Ibuki anyway, while my Ken is certainly stronger, I actually feel more comfortable using Ibuki and much prefer faster characters regardless of game/genre. So I guess my question is whether or not it’s realistically possible to learn the game using Ibuki or would I be better off sticking it out with Ken or a different easier to learn character until my execution at least has improved to the point where Ibuki’s combos seem less intimidating?
Any thoughts or advice?
