I play primarily 3rd Strike, but I’m sure this is common amongst all fighting games.
I come across particular types of players that do something that really, really bothers me. Now, I’m not sure if part of the problem is myself (which I’m sure I most probably am), but I’m most definitely sure they are part of the problem.
When I punish these types of players for repeating something way too often, be it in footsies (low short on wakeup, or always low forward when they’re in range for it, like always), abusing a gimmick, whatever, over and over and over, I expect (perhaps, quite foolishly) that they’ll learn their lesson and PERHAPS, not try it again, over, and over, and fkn over.
How this gets me into trouble, is that, me, being a splendid chap, accrediting my opponents with a fully functional cognitive apparatus, then adjust my play assuming that my opponents won’t go to whatever it is they’re doing… AGAIN! But they DO, and I’ll eat whatever it is they’re repeating a few times a match, even THOUGH I’ll punish them SEVERELY! (For those who come from 3rd strike, when I mean severely, I mean, Urien’s down fierce into 50-60%) Alas, I am too generous, and the great mental status I accredited to my opponents was indeed unworthy of their living corpses.
But I’m more then aware that I am also part of this problem… so then:
Do I just expect that they’ll do it again, and again, and just play out what would then be a non-beneficial match for both parties, since they’re unaware (seemingly) of they’re lack of creativity, and I learn nothing
IS there anything I *can *do?
Any advice here would be great =)
