@RagingStormX Great read, but referring to the last 2 recent posts; do you think new players should be trying to implement these advanced strategies and thought processes as soon as possible or focus on other fundamentals like anti-airing, developing a ground game, blocking, etc. ?
I ask because of what FAI_CW said - “can’t think quickly enough about a solution mid game.”. I have the same problems. When my brain is focused on things like “he’s close enough to jump so I gotta be ready to AA” and “I just got knocked down, holy shit wtf is he going to do next”, thinking about things like mind games or doing things in the sonichurricane link seems like astrophysics.
Do you think a player should focus solely on fundamentals and get beat down until the reach the point where fundamentals become second nature and THEN work on developing things like advanced footsies and mind games?
Start thinking about the advanced stuff as soon as possible, even if 90% of your brain power is focused on AAing a jump in or landing a punish combo? Would that payoff twice as much in the long run (even if the beat downs last twice as long) or are we stunting the development of fundamentals if we dive into the deep end too soon?
