Hello. I’m new to the Shoryuken forums, but I’ve been a fan for a very long time. I know the best fighting game players in the world are here, and what else needs to be said?
I suppose this is more than a question about Ken, but I’ll start with Ken.
I feel the most effective with Ken, but seemingly only in the middle of a fight, when I bring him in and have a few bars saved up… Sometimes even still I get overwhelmed and can’t seem to land a combo all the time. At most I can get a 6 hit combo (C. HP -> SJ -> LP, LK, LP, LK, HK/HP)… And I can BARELY hit a combo.
I want to keep Ken on my team, but I don’t know who to use to support him, and I don’t think he’s a good starting point…Who should I put on a team with Ken or are my mediocre Ken skills not even worth keeping him for?
I understand the ‘get better’, but the CPU is different than human input. Is it something about cancelling? I’m not sure how to ‘cancel’…
When it comes to understanding this game and getting good at the combos, etc… where do I START learning?
I really don’t believe that playing in training mode for a week is going to make me any better.
Any useful insight would be appreciated. I just want to get better at this game… I feel like the worst player ever to pay for this game…
I’m sure people don’t teach over XBL, either…
EDIT: and yes, I know/understand the tiers. So i don’t need an explanation on why I need to use Magneto, Storm and Sentinel.
