Tips for a new player?


I have played fighting games before in the arcades but it was mostly a button mashing good time. Now that I actually own the game, I want to learn it very badly. I am looking for help with both UMVC3 and SSFIV and how to improve. I just bought a Mad Catz Fightstick Pro and am trying to get used to the feel. If there is anyone that is willing to help me, my XBL GT is in my signature. My team on UMVC3 right now is Tron/Dante/Morrigan and I have been using Rufus on SSFIV. If there is any advice that the SRK community can give me it would be greatly appreciated.


youtube is your friend


Yes it is and I continue to watch videos to learn new combos


Welcome to SRK.

If you’re looking for players online, post here:

If you’re looking for players locally, post here:

Otherwise, as far as general advice goes:
Read the sticky threads here in the newbie dojo and in the character specific sections of the forums for whatever games you’re interested in.

If you have a specific question, please post it up. General “hay guys, have any tips?!?” threads are generally frowned upon.
