Ok I've spent the last year playing this game against my friend and I thought I was pretty ok. I know basic combos, AA combos into super combos into ultra, FADC etc. after a while I wanted to start playing online cos playing my friend all the time your not really going to get much better. So I started going online and wel it was a disaster I'm talking double perfects or just pretty much getting completely dominated. It's absolutely insane! I know capcom is constantly trying to make their games more accessible but If your just your average gamer your gonna go online and then run back to the store screaming with terror.
I mean you come accross turtle players that do nothing but sit there and wait for you to attack before AA ING you or just chipping you and then happy to sit there the whole round doing nothing but crouch teching you all day. Then you get your rush down players and its even more insanity because I just can't even get a single hit in and then bang dizzy dead. Perfect. Wow! Now my problem isn't that these people are obviously much better than me but I don't feel like I'm learning anything or getting better, you know? Like for example you play COD or whatever and after 100 matches you notice you are getting better but here nothing. I know it's not fighting games either cos I did really well in games like tekken or MK9 or DOA5 etc but I just don't think my head is capable of ever getting this game. Everyone seems faster than me, people can link and combo of crouching japs and shorts all day where as I really struggle with the execution of it. I've watched 100's of hours of tutorials read pages and pages and still am none the wiser. What do I do? I play Juri, is that a hard character to start with? Any tips on how to at least feel like I'm making progress? Or is It just too late and all the people on XBL playing now have been playing for years and are just too good?
As you can tell I'm pretty frustrated but I'm seriously starting to think Mabey SF just isn't a game for me although I really enjoy it and I rly don't wanna give up. But surely going online and just getting wrecked isn't gonna really teach me anything?
