Yep, I’m a n00b who sucks at SF, but I’ve been a gamer all my life; but let me get to my point.
I played SSF2THDR steadily since its release and I don’t feel I can progress. I win 55% of my fights. I use Chun. I’m an average player, so I feel I can make an observation. I noticed something, and it may or may not be true, or it’s already known. I took note of why I win/lose. Chun has great tools. Problem’s she relies on metagame, punishment, and theoretical strategies. In practice, nobody is 100% evenly skilled and mistakes are made by both players. That’s where the fault lies.
Example: Sagat can scream “tiger” till he’s blue in the face and Chun has to predict and dodge, and wait. How is this fair?
When I win, my foe stumbled. When I lose, he didn’t. That, or our skills were varied, or had bad matchups.
Tell me, SRK, despite the tier data and charts, in practice, how do you escape the corner VS say, Sagat, Akuma? It seems to be a gambit each time.
