I didn’t really know where to post this so I decided to make a new thread, sorry for taking up space.
The other day, my friends were (jokingly) harassing me to play Gen and I decided to play him for shits and giggles (thinking he was terrible or something.) Turns out that I possibly have been forcing myself to play a character I didn’t fit well with this whole time. And it sucks, it sucks really really bad. Because my favorite SF character is hands down Balrog, I love boxing.
It’s kind of sad to see that my Day 2 Gen is rapidly catching my Balrog that took years to learn. I’m not sure what I’m supposed to do now. I’ve been constantly hitting plateaus with Balrog because of how hard I’ve been forcefully playing him and it shows now that I’ve found another character that fits my playstyle smoothly.
Maybe it’s because I’ve been learning SFIV alongside Balrog, I’m not sure. But it feels like he’s just not my character. I’m not sure whether I’ll drop him or not as a main (I’ll keep subbing him) but I’m most likely going to stop following the threads here if it happens.
How would you deal with this situation? I’ve always been stuck on the character loyalty mindset. I’ve been trying my best to find ways to overcome my plateau with Rog for these past months, I need some help with that.
