Have any of you guys ever practiced your combos and practiced various cross ups and different combo starters for hours and hours, only to get spanked by several different people on ranked matches? Recently I’ve been having this problem. I’m not one to complain about a tactic (if I do, it’s usually to myself), but a lot of the things I see coming, for some reason I can’t seem to avoid it. Ether because a small amount of lag, or something else.
I’ve been practicing in training mode for days, trying to get these combos trapped in muscle memory, but as soon as the combo starts in ranked match for some weird reason I can never keep it going! I’ve practically memorized 80% of the Zero combos that I’ve made up myself. I utilize various cross over combos, and memorized combos up to 1 million damage or more…but I can never seem to get them off in ranked matches. I can’t seem to understand why ether!
It’s been very frustrating trying to find people to practice with, because on ranked matches I’ve learned that people never try to do those long hard to do combos. Most of them just stick to one state of thinking. Example: Using Dormammu’s triangle jump, Iron Man’s triangle jump, and proceeds to continue doing the same thing.
I don’t want to appear like I’m QQ-ing, god forbid I know a good amount of the Shoryuken community is ready to blow me up with random hate, noob calling, or whatever. I just wanted to know if ether of you guys had a problem like this.
Is it me? Do I need to practice more? I don’t know what it is. I can’t find anyone online to practice combos with. And I only know one person close by I can practice with and even though he’s -really- good, he’s not really up with the whole competitive aspect of Marvel vs Capcom 3.
I attended a Marvel vs Capcom 3 tournament at AnimeNext in Somerset, NJ and managed to win the first round. So I’m pretty sure I don’t suck. I just need practice with approaches, countering certain teams and whatever.
My current team is Zero, Wesker, Jill (in that order). Zero I’m 100% comfortable with, I don’t think there’s any combo I can’t do if I see it online. Jill, I’m about 80% comfortable with. However, Wesker is another story. I can pull off certain combos, but there are certain things I just can’t seem to pull off.
I look back at what I’ve just typed and I’m wondering why on earth I did it. Guess all I’m trying to do is find out if anyone has experienced my frustration, while looking for someone to practice with in the process.
Anyway, thanks for reading.
