so I started playing sf online recently because it’s not laggy as hell any more, but I’ve found a new trend in sf lately. I haven’t played too competitively because my group of friends really don’t play very well.
everyone I play has mad rush down fever, it’s not really a technical game any more, I mean I shoryukened this guy like 8 times in a match when he was jumping in, and he kept doing it like he was programmed to do so. at some point i was convinced he was gonna try something different, because SF is about mind games isn’t it? but most people really just try to get their game plan implemented rather than just fighting a different opponent and adapting to their styles like back in the day. I dunno, maybe it’s just that the games nowadays are more conducive to rushing down and old school sf was more conducive to turtling. I mean people rush me down in alpha 3. Akuma is a pain in the ass, adon, cammy, sometimes ken.
anyone got any good ideas on how to just destroy these people’s stratedgies so that the come out of cloud nine and back to mind games?
