PvP in Dark Souls was laggy. I think I'll roll offline and play through the single player with a fun build and not worry about connection issues and stuff.

Oh my. Ok, I'm going to lay some Zen shit down on you, which I have found to 100% true in my own experience. Ready..ok.. Stop looking for one, yep that's it, seriously. The moment your comfortable on your own and in your own skin, and adjusted to fact that you know what, I'm happy to be myself. BAM you'll meet someone, because there is no expectation. But it only works if you believe that your are content in yourself. I have met my current girlfriend (experiencing the same phenomenon by the way) this way, and I think every girl I have ever gone out with.
And if it doesn't work, at least you'll be happy to be alone FOREVER AND EVER. Win-win as they say.
Back here in the grand Nothern Europe our scene is so small that we'll gladly teach people how to play from the ground up. It is all part of the master plan of having them donate to the (nonexistent) pots in tournaments, of course.
Probably not as crazy as the FGC of the US but people make noise in tournaments and there's some smacktalk. It's like one big family where everyone knows each other.
So with this and the new Smash Bros coming out in 2014, the competitive community is split 4-way. Maybe that will finally do the trick.
I'd say XRD but I'm really looking forward to playing P4A again. The guilty gear scene is rather big here and it's a standard in tournaments so I wouldn't mind a new game. On the other hand P4A is almost dead but it's one of my favorite newer fighting games. I have BBCP and the game is ok but I dislike low damage and some characters seem a bit dumb.
Just find something that works, use it and win. That's the secret of fighting games. If you find that one magical button that destroys all your friends, press it. Keep on pressing that button until everyone quits or someone beats it. Then find something else: another button, jump, special move etc. Keep abusing everything good you find until everyone quits or someone beats what you're doing.
When you're not playing you do tutorials, watch good players play on youtube and try new things in practise mode or repeat old things.
If that sounds a bit too much, just press buttons somewhat wildly and cheer your friends. What alienates players from fighting games is mostly the competition, not the players or difficulty of the game. Once someone starts playing to win, it's on like donkey kong though.
