Hey guys, so as the title says I’m completely fresh meat to the genre. The reason I never played fighting games before is because I didn’t own a console, I just played PC games. With SG on steam now I can play online! Plus with my mechanical keyboard it feels nice using it for a fighting game. I finished the tutorial modes, played a bit of arcade, and got my ass whooped a lot ( A LOOOOOOT) online. But it’s a ton of fun, I play mostly RTS and FPS games so this is a huuuge new experience to me.
ATM when I’m not getting destroyed online I try to practice combos I see people put up on youtube. I’m mainly just playing Filia solo since I like her air combos, good/bad beginner choice? I’m looking for any pointers to help me be a bit more competitive online. In the games where I’m not getting completely dominated I try to knock people in the air a lot with with cLK,sMK,sHP and then do jMP,jMK. When I pull it off it’s nice, but people seem find it pretty predictable @_@.
Anyways my other general questions.
Is the match making system cross platform? Meaning PC players can play vs console players (concept from CS:GO).
Is the match making system really working? One game I’m playing another noob like me, the next I get HAMMERED by some guy doing infinite combos and then does his special to my dead body as a parting gift.
Are there any balance issues between using one, two, or three characters?
Should I consider switching to a fight stick or pad? Doing Cerebella’s 360 thing is pretty awkward (I still can’t do it) with arrow keys. Plus mine are kinda busted so I’m using numpad arrow keys.
I’m really feeling the game so far, looking forward to any advice you guys can offer. Thank you!
