Recently playing ive noticed a few things, that lead me to a “YOU LOSE” factor. I seem to be too defensive with pretty much any character, a little more offence with ken due to the LP shoryuken. So this makes me tend to stay away from other characters a good bit.
Another thing is that i dont think i can Low/Down parry at all so i seem to block low and eat all sorts of combos.
Playing offence requires prediction of the opponents next move, leading to timed blocks and parrys, following a punishment.
Also i think you really need to play with other characters to see how their moves work, gives you slight advantage when playing against them, how to block , counter etc.
Ive noticed alot of people repeat themselves, i do at times to. mixups.
