I thought this could be an interested thread, Im myself a completely new SF player when I bought SSF4 a few days after it came out. And Im guessing Im not the only one here. So basically the idea of this thread is to do a summary of our current progress as new SF players. That way, we could compare ourselves in our learning and improving as a player. Perhaps even we could share some ideas to help eachother out to keep getting better. Anyway, here’s my ‘‘SSF4 Progress Report’’.
GT: Darth Revan 666
Main: Balrog(2585 BP)
Sub: Ryu(736 BP), Juri(117 BP)
Location: Montreal, Canada
As for now, my PP is pretty unstable since I often go through bad streaks and good streaks. For my main, Balrog, I like the fact that I can rushdown or turtle at almost anytime really, Im also obviously really digging his godly normals. Thats why Im pretty positive about the fact that I’ll keep maining for a long time. For Ryu, I stopped playing him almost a month ago, he was basically just a starting char to get me going, I’ll probably never gonna go back playing him on a regular basis. He just doesnt fit my style. And for Juri, she’s my latest attempt at finding a good sub for the bad matchups of Balrog, and for variety sake. But Im still pretty crappy with her, Im still on the fence if I should sub somebody else at this point.
So overall Im satisfied with my progress, but I still fail to get my BnB combos for Balrog to connect properly on a consistent basis. I’ll have to work on that. I’d like to know also from more experienced players if my progress is on a good pace or not at this point.
