I picked the game off live arcade at the beginning of january. It’s my first street fighter game that I’ve put more than a couple minutes into (I grew up with MK and moved onto guilty gear). I’ve spent my time in what I think is intelligent ways. I’ve done arcade to see what the computers use, try similar things when I play that character, and build off of it. I play with friends in player matches learning a thing or two, and experimenting with hitboxes in training mode. I’m coming along nicely, but I’ve come at a crossroads of alot of things I’m just not good at that I’ll need to really compete. I know I would get it all with enough time, but surely there most be an order that could benefit me the fastest? Here’s my list, as far as I know:
-Combos, I’ve read about them, watched videos, but can’t for the life of me pull off more than 2 moves.
-Reversals, not exactly easy to work on in training mode, I can pull it off about 10% of the time, although I’m sure it’ld be easier without a 360 pad
-Tick throws/combo setups in general, never could set it up, I just haven’t developed the speed with the pad I guess, don’t think I’ve ever gotten a proper one off :sad:
-Charge characters, I’ve seen them played very aggressively very well, but I can’t quite get the hang of charging without turtling in the fetal position in a corner of the screen, I’ve avoided them for the most part (Boxer excluded) and lack any finesse with these types
I play a decent mix of Ryu, Boxer, Sagat, and Cammy. Because of these lacks I’ve had to play with more reaction than aggression, and I know it’s holding me back. Suggestions on what, if anything, I should focus on?
