After keeping an eye on SSF4 and AE over the past while I ended up getting interested enough to try it out, but this type of fighter is definitely a new ground for me (considering the only other two I played were Melty Blood Act Cadenza and Marvel vs Capcom 3). Having to work so hard just to connect a couple basic normals consistently is definitely a new experience to say the least, hehe!
Playing something slower and methodical like this has been pretty fun so far, but I need some suggestions to help me get going! Nothing too mundane as I did watch several of the tutorial videos posted on the forums here (thanks for the helpful resources, everyone!). I am trying to find a character to focus on to finally start practicing links properly and try to play better overall.
I picked out a few I am interested in, but always open to suggestions! What I am looking for is a solid character overall who is not too harsh on execution. This is what I toyed with so far:
Chun-Li: Seems pretty good! Quite like her normals, really not a fan of charge moves, though…
Rose: Okay normals, and I like how she plays, but she seems to have an enormous amount of trouble getting the opponent off of her. Really lacking one wake-up, too…
Juri: I like her specials, but her normals seem bad, also seems to do very little damage.
I also tried Ibuki and Makoto a little bit, but not enough to really say much. If any of my observations are wrong lemme know. I wanna try and get decent at this game, so your thoughts will certainly help get me started!
Thanks in advance, and sorry if topics like this are annoying at all.
