Some times it seems like there should be a machine for comp and for playing. Come on guys, not everyone is a hardcore fgamer. Maybe the three of them were just chillin at the game and don’t are interested in frames, evo or something. It would be really awesome to find people that love the game as much as yourself. (believe me, i live in a city where there’s like 4 good players that plays constantly trying to improve and study the game).
Actually we’re passing through a similar experience here. There’s this local arcade that only had like really old and shitty games and we kept demanding new games for like 4 years and just now they got MvC2 so now we’re faced with the challenge of getting new players. But it’s complicated. I believed that if you play easy and teach the game to the new players, they’ll get the hang of it, but i’ve already noticed that 1 out of 100 people wants to learn, so its not that bad if you just rape the new players cause most of them just want to play, so the ones who really want to learn will be impressed by the raping and will start asking questions, that’s when i think you stop the infinite-guardbreak-lockdown madness and start teaching things in steps.
That’s nowhere a cientific exact thing on how to get new players but i’m kinda confused right now on how doing that and how to deal with noobs on arcades, i believe that only one thing is like certain: You can win, you can rape them, BUT, you must set your game play in a way that they can move around with the characters in the game space, actually see the game, this means in mvc2 to avoid sent-commando locking some one on the corner, or cable sent that dont let a person who know how to super jump get the hell out of there. Do three or four loops of one infinite, do some dhcs, do some lockdown, but let them call assists, perform specials and move around the screem and eventually they’ll think : Hey, i wanna play this shit. hehe
I would like some discuss on that topic, this post can be on how to deal with scrubs/noobs in arcades and how to make them new players, maybe its an utopia but hey, there must be someway, otherwise, we wouldn’t be here aheuehe
