They are really really shit at the game. I just had a match with one ken player and all he did was a backward jump arc, one or two hadoukens, maybe a tatsumaki and some random normals… only coming close to grab. But for most of the match he tries to make sure we are at max possible distance with each other. I find many online matches where the scrub picks a projectile character are like this.
What is this achieving for him? It achieves nothing. All it leaves room for is fireball wars and he or I won’t improve. I don’t understand the motivation…is it fun for them? I can’t imagine it is… Would they be deilberately shit at counter strike (random example) but still get kills by stealing them or shooting in the back and then convincing themselves they are good?
I mean, I am shit at the game too but I’m not a scrub. I would rather try stuff out and lose than maintain a shitty level that would never hold in high-level play.
