Hello everyone, I got my hands on a TE stick about 2 weeks ago since it was getting kinda frustrating playing with the keyboard.
I bought it based on everyones opinion, whenever I ask about the best hardware for sf4 the TE comes on top but here’s my issue : I suck as HELL with it xDD
I’ve always been playing with pads, mostly ps2/ps3 or olders but joystick is new to me. I’ve been playing around 200 matchs (almost 100 with abel, then 100 with gouken) and I can hardly see any improvement xD I’m a sore loser when I’m playing the tournament mode (dunno why, but the fact that I don’t win xxx GP makes me mad xD) and the more I lose the more insane I become xD I start getting too nervous (though it’s FULLY my fault if I lose) and I fear that I may start to hit my stick xDD
So here’s my issue, is it normal that I suck that hard with the stick? I’m I in an uncomfortable position to play with it? I grab the stick with three fingers and mash the buttons with 2 and sometimes 3 fingers, but for some reason I find it really hard to dash, therefore I can’t be as aggressive as I used to be with a pad and I have to play in an offensive style which doesnt suit me much, well it works against noobs but once people get skilled, I almost get perfect.
So my biggest problem with the stick is the speed I move it, it seems too slow, or too difficult to dash fast (for example i can’t link gouken’s tatsumaki after an ex shoryu) and combine it with some moves.
Well it’s my first time posting in english, so I may say loads of crap (I apologise in prevision xD) and as you can see I’m upset with how I play atm.
Sorry for the long post !
