I think he means mashing in T6 will get further than mashing in SF. Which is true. But it won’t get u far.
It is WAY different compared to SF. There are 40 characters which is a great roster. It is really balanced. It is not like SF where its very matchup heavy. Any character (with enough practice and creativity) can definitely win against any other character. Unlike SF where you would jus apply what you know that’s good agains X character, you could really e creative and sort of mold your character to how you want to play.
I think people are just intimidated of the big move list of every character. But I think that’s one of the good things about Tekken. It’ll help you become unique from the rest. And you can avoid people being up in your face with good movement since you cab sidestep and all that good stuff.
And TTT2 is coming up. For what it looks right now, it won’t change much from Tekken 6. So if you wanna play TTT2 and want get a head start, I suggest you pick up T6. Also it’s only like 20 dollars? So it’s pretty good =)
