Hey guys, I’m a long time player of fighting games; mostly SF and Tekken. I’ve played a lot of MvC2, all Tekken, all Soul Caliber, and MvC3 since its release. My interest in the Street Fighter series has recently returned with Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition. My main games are now UMvC3 and SSF4AE. As much as I play them, however, I don’t feel as if I’ve improved much through the years. I generally play offline single player, as there aren’t any arcades in my area that have the games I play, and online seems to be a lag fest where Hulk lag tactics seem to prevail.
Most of my game has been focused on beating the CPU. I can beat the hard difficulty without losing with my fav. team but very hard whoops my ass around fight 4. I suppose that might give you an idea of my skill level.
That being said, I’ve been trying to get into more advanced game play, where I can become “competitive” even if that is only for online play. I don’t quite expect to start playing in tournaments but who knows. Of course I came to shoryuken.com to learn my shit. Man, some of you guys are ridiculous players. The videos I see out there are insane; some of ya’ll would totally wreck me.
Anyways, for the MvC series I’ve always played Tron. Her quirky attitude and unique fighting style caught me from the beginning (Dreamcast MvC2 player woot) and I’ve been playing since. In MvC3 I made a mecha team of Tron, Sentinel, and Zero. I never played Sent in MvC2 but I’ve become pretty decent with him. I hear that Zero is crazy but I’m improving the least with him. Still fun character to play, though.
My main question is: does Tron/Sent/Zero sound like a good team? What would be some pros/cons for them? Perhaps some good setups for them? Any help/advice is appreciated.
I’m still learning the fighting game lingo (cross over, rush down, etc) but don’t hold back.
I look forward to learning more with you guys.
My apologies if this is the wrong spot for this thread.
Extra: I play on a Hori HRAP3 V3-SA. What do you guys think of this stick? The buttons and stick seem to be wicked responsive and as a bonus I can use it for my PS3 (UMvC3) and PC (SSF4AE). Just curious to how well it performs compared to other sticks.
