I recently have given up my addiction, that being the game diablo II for the computer. It gave me a good 4 years worth of sleepless nights and it really is time to say good bye to that life style. I decided to dedicate my time to playing fighters, like any time i’m not in school or at martial arts i will be playing fighters, alone or at the local arcades here in rhode island which there arnt many considering the good one is Tokyo Game Action, which is a 20 minuet drive and i won’t have my liscense till february at the very soonest.
My dilema is that many people tell me that it is important not to play on “lag box live” because of the lag, and it can ruin my game. Is this really true? or is that all opinion? the reason i ask is because i won’t have all that much competition during the week, i will only be able to get to the good arcade near me maybe once or twice a week.
I am alright at fighters, i just need a way for me to be able to practice, but the computer has patterns which really does not help much at all to most people including my self. I need to be able to play actual people more often if i want to get better in general at fighters. I need to lern to be patient, and to find openings pretty much. Combos really are not a problem for me, for the most part i can see and repeat nearly anything, unless there is a specific skill needed in which to do it such as kara dragon punch and such. Roll canceling really is not a problem for me at this time, i play K groove on cvs2.
Will x-box live help me? Why do you beleive it will/will not? Please give any and all imput if you can, it will be appreciated.
Please dont fill this thread with “x-box live is garbage” posts unless you really do have things to back that statement up.
