*A Note From Japan
Months after writing the above chapter, I traveled to Japan in March 2003 as part of Team USA, representing the United States in Super Turbo Street Fighter. I also played a bit of Capcom vs. SNK 2 over there. One interesting thing about Japanese players is that they stick with just one character (or one team of characters in CvS2), since their tournament format requires keeping the same character the entire tournament. In the United States, we can switch characters between games, giving us an incentive to learn at least two to four different characters.
The Japanese players definitely proved to me that by sticking to one character and learning everything about that character, you win the unwinnable matches.*
Directly from Playing To Win, thx to Sirlin for contributing this (watch shoryuken.com homepage for more info)
What do you think about sticking to one char/team in 2007? What do you preffer and why? I’d like to get different points of views.
