Well I’ve been playing just about every competitive fighting game that’s came out ever since I was in 7th grade, and I consider myself to be pretty good. But the thing is I’ve never really sat down and practiced in any of them (except a couple A groove combos in CvS2 last year). Like bnb combos and shit I would just learn by playing matches with a few of my boys and I’d kind of learn how to play with my characters on the fly.
But now with my newfound love for koF98UM and SFIV/HDR coming out, and me getting introduced to new competition both in person and over 2df and seeing just how important mastering your execution is, I think I’m going to switch up how I learn a character(s) and actually take the time to practice poke strings and combos and stuff.
I was just wondering, SRK what do you recommend for a “training regime” of sorts…like how should I practice and what should I practice? Like I know how to play the games and I know about the systems and all that, but since I’ve never actually practiced before, I want to know the best way for me to be able to get the most out of a character I choose and how I should approach practicing, if it’s more than just “Practice this combo until you could do it without thinking” cause I know there’s probably more than that.
