pretty sure being a scrub is acceptable. just play the game, have fun.
about picking it up late in the game… what i feel is that 3s is a really robust game that will last a long time, basically, so you shouldn’t feel like you’ve missed the boat and need to do a lot of catch up. given the lasting power that it has, you don’t need to have gotten in at the “right” time, because it will be relevant to a lot of people over a long period of time, so you can get in on it at any time. generally speaking. i mean i guess the same thing could be said for other fighting games, but i dunno, i think 3s is a cut above the rest
anyway, the more obvious thing is that 3so is a rerelease, so if there were a point in time where there are lots of people who are coming into the game at the same time as you with the same level of skill, now would be one of those times. but like i said, even if you miss THIS opportunity, it’s not a big deal. no one is going to wonder where you were when everyone else was picking up the game.
so yeah just play the game and have fun, and get better if you want.
