    Yeah I get lag anytime a room gets over 4-5 ppl, especially when chat is on. There is a PSN stream later I may try to get in on. http://shoryuken.com/calendar.php?do=getinfo&c=3&e=1483

    6 streaked on Peaceful Jay's, players in there called me a turtle and then did nothing but walk away from me as some sort of protest?

    So I said fuck it mashed jab xx elec. There is 0 point in actually trying to play with people if they are just going to give up and bitch because of my playstyle.

    Am I supposed to apologize for not jumping into enough uppercuts or something?

    I was just relaxing with a beer 'n' blanka and got squashed by a 43 hit combo. First time I seen that high a combo, serious lay-down-the-controller stuff. Need more than beer to relax now. Seth btw, Auron255. So funny.... :)

    Man I suck when I try to implement new stuff into my game.

    Tell me about it.

    my mindset right now is sweep, sweep, sweep, so I can get used to doing all of my meaty setups. Land a focus? SWEEP. Punish a whiff? SWEEP. I'm even doing it in footsies which is bad cause I get a counterhit.

    Saying that just made me come up with another setup. TO THE LAB.

    Beer involved, still nice combo:
  • JOLTheadJOLThead Joined: Posts: 573Registered
    Wow 43 hits and still almost lost. Seth is my worst matchup. At least you don't have to hit too many times to ko him.

    I'd rather play Seth than Sim. You can reversal U2 Seth Limbs on block.
  • SaKurabaSaKuraba Denjin Turtle Joined: Posts: 100Registered
    Sim is my worst matchup don't run into Many in ranked tho.
  • DarachnidDarachnid Salty Member Joined: Posts: 555Registered
    I don't mind Sim when I'm in a technical, counter everything, sharp, defensive and lightening fast reactions mood... But I'm not in that type of mood very often. I find my matchup game improving though, properly murdered a few Sims recently. Now Kens, they seem to be a weird match for me. I just want to kill them too quickly or something? Guiles too, the words 'sonic' and 'boom' irritate me surprisingly quickly.

    I just FA absorbed an Akuma triple-hit fireball, first one got absorbed... the next two just dissapeared?!?! Definite triple-hitter, Akuma said "Shakunetsu" as they launched, three big red ones. Hahaha! Completly impossible. Blankas secret kung-fu FA move.
  • foxisquickfoxisquick Joined: Posts: 1,284Registered
    Don't feel bad about being called a turtle. I got like a 20 game streak and i was rushing everyone down for fun. People said all i do is hop. It's just for fun and it's online lol? Can't win either way.

    Sounds like jab shaku fireball. If you didn't know, jab is only a 1 hit red fireball, strong is 2-hit, and fierce is 3-hit. They all look the same.
  • DarachnidDarachnid Salty Member Joined: Posts: 555Registered
    Must have been a 1 hitter Shaku, I'm just so used to 3 hitters. All I know was I FA'd it up close and thought 'Doh!, this is going to hurt' but no....

    I'd forgotten about the strenghts. Seems pointless to only throw a 1 hitter shaku, although I'm sure there is a reason behind it... more stun from inital searches. Thanks.

    signed up for a 4 man tournament on G4G cause I found a promo code awhile ago that gave me 5 bucks on the site.

    only 2 other guys sign up so I get the bye.

    Match ends up being against a Rog player and I almost lose because I ate random ex headbutt -> ultra like 5 times until I learned to just bait him. I really need to stop respecting people and assuming they aren't just going to mash.

    Good thing it was 3/5 as I am now 3 dollars and 40 cents richer. GRINDING MY WAY UP.

    Nice one man, nothing like a good rog bashing.

    Spend your winnings wisely, I suggest these:

    Street Fighter Toys

    A couple more wins like that one and you could afford the blanka keychain voicebox!!

    :)

    woo, 5001 pp, took a big set vs a 3900pp ken to get the last 200pp. kept winning 4, lose 1, back to square 1. also tsrai only has 4300pp now, and no new replays on shinakuma's youtube channel whats going on!

    I think playing Ranked was making me a worse player.

    Having to revert to bait -> punish in 75% of my matchups, and losing the ability to meaty/do ambig stuff against people who just mash ultra/whatever every time they get comboed or are knocked down.

    Able to use new meaty stuff in endless, the actual ability to get into players heads after a few matches against them, and not having to revert to bait/punish so often just makes me feel more well rounded.

    I think the breaking point for me was playing against jump back fierce Honda who challenged me like 8 times in a row. Every round took 90 seconds. Then they switched to Fuerte and did the same thing and played me another 4 times later. I was literally pissed off playing against them.

    I ran into k mada and IIPeru and got dropped to 4400 a few days ago. Then got stubborn and kept playing this sagat who lagged and kept losing. But got back up to about 4600 right now. Getting 5kpp isn't so hard. It's just once you get into the 5k range all those 3500-4200 pp players you run into now eat up like 80+points and only give like 20-30. When beofre it was like a 60/40 which isn't so bad. So you gotta play really safe. It's kinda making me more cautious which is good.

    @veserius i think ranked makes you bad when you don't care about losing points. If you can find a reason to not lose then it is easier. 6kpp goal is gonna help me play more serious and stubborn online.
  • foxisquickfoxisquick Joined: Posts: 1,284Registered
    btw @ t srai having 4300pp. I think if he's legitly losing as blanka and not playing an alt it could be because his style is very agressive. It has more random factors which can get him more wins if he runs into the right opponents or more losses.

    so for someone like him he'll be like 4300 one day and 6k another day lol. While someone who's more like mizoteru's style will probably be like 5k-5500k all the time. Personally i think if mizo was online serious he could keep a 5500k+ rating. But i am mizo biased lol. to a fault probably.

    I think the problem is I don't learn anything if I just play how I normally do which gives me the best chance of winning. And the other guy is doing jump back fierce for 40 seconds trying to preserve his 20% life lead, and then I just revert to baiting that fierce and punishing.

    I dunno maybe I've just been into a run of bad players, but it makes it frustrating to try to win when I can accomplish this doing 2 safejump setups and tickthrowing. When I play 4k+ players who literally don't have any footsies and just throw out special moves or jump I want to punch them in the throat.

    good point. where are you located? do you have a solid friends list to get a nice endless going?
  • VeseriusVeserius Paragon of Cyber-Athleticism Joined: Posts: 4,887Registered

    I've been using SRKlive to build a friends list actually, and I'm going to be tourneying more now that I feel better about my gameplay+I'm not sick in bed.

    Do you counterpick your bad matchups and with who? I get tired of using Blanka all the time so I like to mix it up. Been having fun with Dee Jay. He fits my turtle or attack mixup style, and I actually do fairly well as noob with him. Played a Rog that had some points and won without the headache when I'm Blanka. Also beat a good Cammy with Dan. I'm sure it has to do more with knowing those matchups better, but I think I'll put some time into Dee Jay as my 2nd character.
