I’m very very new to the FGC. I bought SF4 a few months ago and bought my first fightstick a one month ago. I would say I’m not a bad player but also I’m not an expert. After a lot of time I know how everything works but I need a LOT of practice to do some combos. I have a 5500 BP Sim and 2000 PP by playing pretty much only him (with some Ken and Gouken). I can’t pull a lot of Sim’s main combos being doomed this way to limit my damage to half of what I could do given the openings I find in some fights but thank god Sim is not such a heavily combo-based player (my impression is). But in any case as my score tells, I can do well in fights with people with 1-3K PP.
In any case a tournament is coming and I was excited to participate. I don’t care about winning of course (lol here). I just want the experience of playing with other SF players. I was wondering about the level of players that participate in tournaments. Could you find some of the 2000PPs players there or is it only real pros? I know that the FGC is quite obnoxious (sic sorry) as well and even if I don’t really care about what other people might say I wan’t to avoid a case in which I’ll be just a clown in a crowd of people.
What is your tournament experience?
