so, the way i’ve learned 3rd strike for the past 3 years was to setup a schedule for myself. Each character in 3rd strike has taught me a few more skills that I can translate well into other games. for instance,
learning makoto helped me evolve my mind games and mixups
learning yun has helped me (extraordinarily) with my technique and execution
learning dudley has helped me with my timing (juggle combos)
learning hugo has helped me with spacing
learning akuma has helped me with rush down and just putting your balls to the walls
learning ryu/ken has helped me understand and appreciate the 'ume’
learning yang has helped me with defense
and so on.
Now, its time for me to learn urien. I kind of understand the concept of unblockables, pretty much what I’ve learned is that you need to force the opponents character to be faced with attacks on both sides of his/her hitbox.
but more importantly, in order to do unblockables, I need to learn how to charge partition, as the only unblockable I can do is the scrubby throw, mp headbutt, f+mk and that only works on people who don’t know about quick standing.
my questions about charging:
- Move lists always say “Charge back and then forward + p”. I’m guessing you should charge back for 3 seconds. I’m also guessing its in-game seconds. Is that right? or is there another number I need to be thinking about.
2)Regardless of the number, is it best to keep track of the time with the in game clock or within your head. I’ve got too much to think about in my game to reserve space for time, but this can be learned and will be if needed. I’m sure the more I get used to charging the more it’ll just be ‘felt out’.
When partitioning, is there anything that can interrupt the partition? can I do say… hold d/b for 2/3 the time needed to charge, parry a jump in, go back to d/b for the remaining 1/3 then f + :k: ?
How do you do multiple tackles? I’ve heard it was like
:l: (charge) :p: :r: [negative edge? not sure how this works] then hold :l: to charge again
I try to
:l: (charge) :r: + :p: (immediately) :l: for the next tackle.
I need some help with that, and maybe if I attend some casuals I’ll learn from someone.
But if someone could answer these questions <3
no real questions about buffering, it makes sense.
