A lot of players who rank over say, 2000pp tend to start to split into two distinct categories.
The first one being the kind of player who really tries hard to combo and link moves. The second being the kind of player who doesn’t really focus on learning, or mastering combos, but tends to keep it simple, defensive yet smart with regard to reacting when the opponent makes a mistake for a simple but strong punish.
I’m bringing this up because I just watched a 2000pp Ken pull of some nice combos, and FADC into ultra 1 to win a match against a very decent opponent. I can’t do that in a live match environment as of yet, but I still dominated him when we played. I’m definitely more on the second kind of player though I’m trying to incorporate the more technical aspect to my game as well.
The question is, apart from say learning a BnB combo do you really need to go in depth to be better at the game?
