I’ve been playing fighting games for a while now. I think I have an addiction and I love it. SSF4AE, BlazBlue, Persona, Mortal Kombat, Injustice, Guilty Gear, Skullgirls, Marvel, Smash; You name it, and I’ve probably played it. However, I’m not that great and recently I’ve been desperately trying to break through this glass ceiling. Street Fighter is actually the worst for me because of the 1 frame links. Combo’s aren’t hard for me, but when it comes down to playing someone, I have trouble approaching and opening up my opponent. I also mess up my inputs a lot (Like trying to DP and getting QCF or down and forward). Long story short, I just wanna ask how did you veteran fighters get where you are today and what kind of practice did you do to get better at whatever game you are best at? How did you discover your main(s)? Also what tips/suggestions can you give to someone who’s trying to move from the noob pool to higher-end play and eventually to the competitive stage?
The only fighting games I am good at are Injustice (kinda), Smash bros, and Ninja Storm. I also don’t have many friends to play against or any arcades near me
I play a little better on a controller, but my cousin got me a mini arcade stick for my birthday, so I’ve been trying to get a feel for it.
