I played Skullgirls earlier on and tried to play some online matches. However I couldn’t seem to find anyone in ranked Europe/West Coast America. The unranked rooms were empty also, for every region except for one room.
However I do have NAT type 2 right now, so I was thinking it may be a cause of this. But is anyone else seeing a shortage of games in Skullgirls?
Or perhaps everyone is waiting for the next patch?
Haha, I’m a bit scared to challenge anyone on SRK until I get a fightstick and get used to it (really hoping I can pick up that Qanba eLive pro RF before they run out).
Even though Skullgirls is much more forgiving for pad players than Street Fighter, right now I wouldn’t go challenging anyone
What are you talking about, man? The controller doesn’t make the player, experience and willingness to practice does. I only use a pad, and I’m pretty damn decent. I haven’t been able to capture instances of my ability quite yet, but there are a handful of members here who could tell you (scrub saibot and evilweevle off the top of my head). Everyone else is either on another system, had one or two bad matchups with me, or is named ‘ataconzi’.
Well, I find Z and double quarter movements to be a real bitch on a D-pad. You can argue that that’s not a really amazing reason to dish out €200 on a good quality stick (shipping costs to Ireland for Qanba sticks are immense), but there’s only so much I can do on a pad with my gargantuan hands, as well as thumb becoming a bit sore after too much PS3 D-pad use. I’d just rather use a stick.
Also, since 24Mb broadband is finally available in my area, I’ll start to play with some of you guys if/when I get the upgrade. ;D
The D-pad? Is that what everyone uses? Huh. I use the anolog stick (on a 360 pad), and those motions are easy for me. I didn’t even know that people had trouble with them. I tried to use the d-pad when I first started (SFA3), but it didn’t work out for me, and I found out that the 360 stick worked perfect for me when I started playing SF4.
But, yeah, you don’t need to justify your own purchases with your own money to me, or any other complete stranger. I look forward to playing you, though.
Well bro, American games aren’t really an option right now for me, and that’d be where most people would be playing I’d assume. I did search for unranked lobbies but only one showed out of all regions. I’ll have a go at changing my NAT Type to 1 when I get the chance and will see if it makes a big difference.
If I do a full QCF after the F, there’s a rare chance I may have screwed up the timing or my finger position somehow and I end up performing the QCF attack. However if I leave that last F out, this never seems to happen. So I just stick to the shorter version.
Being in Hawaii, I’m limited to the WC-est of the WC peeps. I still manage to find somebody to play who I haven’t friended, but it typically takes between 10 - 20 minutes to find a game. I play Odin Sphere in the downtime or read a book.
Though on the blue moon there are people who live midwest or further who have red ping and yet the connection is smooth.
