Struggling to transition into Street Fighter 5


#1

Street Fighter 4 was definitely the game I spend the most time with, and I’m having a hard time getting into this new one. What are some obvious things to work on in this game that weren’t really present in street fighter 4?

Definitely don’t try to throw someone unless you’re in point blank range. This is also a note to myself.

You shouldn’t work to get knockdowns in this game like in SF4 as there are no hard knockdowns outside a few select moves. You can quickrise and backroll on almost everything. Oki is not the focus here. Footsies is more effective here since you don’t have something like focus to bypass them and blow it up. Proximity blocking doesn’t work the same way.
