I’ve been playing some 3rd Strike again recently, and I’m running into a couple big problems.
- I can’t get my special moves out consistently…like, at all.
I noticed that the deadzone for the controller seems different than in SF4 and SF5. That itself I don’t have an issue with.
The problem is, even when I grind the joystick on the edges, I can’t get uppercuts and fireballs out half the time.
Is the input time for a special move shorter than in later games?
I don’t see how I could possibly miss a fireball motion when I grind a quarter circle along the edge of my stick
- Are the inputs for (in this case) Ryu’s towards Strong stored longer than in later games?
I see myself doing overheads on accident alot when I actually want to do standing Strong into fireball.
FightCade is probably not the best way to practice 3rd Strike anyways
Getting utterly destroyed doesn’t really help me improve, especially considering how overwhelming the parry mechanic is in this game when you start out.
Wish there was like a ranked format of some sorts where I could fight people of equal strength.
Currently it’s just jumping into a match and hoping that I’m not against someone that’s been playing Urien for the last 10 years.
