So I recently got UMvC3 and it is the first fighting game I’ve played (I’m normally a SC2 player). I’m not quite sure how I should go about improving. I’ve chosen 3 characters to learn the moves of (zero, taskmaster, akuma), and I can execute very basic combos, but now I’m kind of unsure what the best way to learn is.
I’ve tried playing online against others both in player matches and ranked matches, and I get my ass handed to me equally to the point where I cannot do anything, and I feel like this isn’t exactly good practice for me. I’ve tried joining beginner lobbies, but even there can’t find anybody I can come close to competing with.
I know the training room is supposed to be a good way to learn, but I don’t even know what I should be doing in there >.<. Of course I could practice combos, but I’m not quite sure if that is going to help me when I can’t touch my opponent to get them into a combo in the first place.
So basically, how should someone completely new like me go about learning how to play better, when everyone is so far above me skillwise that all I do is get nearly perfected every game?
On another note, is my lineup of zero/task/akuma any good at all or does it even matter at my level?
