Please help me eliminate my supreme suckage GB SFIV community!
So I recently got Street Fighter IV for the PC. I've played quote of few hours of SSFII previous to this, and a few hours of SFIV at a friends house.
I have currently suck around 30 hours into my copy of Street Figher IV.
And I suck.
Any Sagat, Cammy, Ryu, Ken, Akuma, basically anybody online totally dominates my face. And I don't know why!
Maybe I'm just sucky at fighting games. Maybe it's the Fightpad I'm using. Maybe I shouldn't main Abel. I don't Know!
That why I've come to you guys for help. Please provide any tips, tricks, pointers, anything. You've helped me in the past and I expect no less from you now. Thanks from misterpope in advance.
Anyway, back to OP. I hate to sound like a broken record: but, yeah, practice does it all. I've put in roughly the same amount and my win percentage is fucking sad: 37%. Just keep at it, figure out what you need to focus on and build a strategy.
" @Scooper: I've played about 300 now, and I'm terrified I'm not as good as I should be for all those hours gone. "Yep. Same here. Just over 300 hours. Granted I've diddle daddied from 1 character to the other and if I'd spent all the time learning just 1 character I'd be pretty good but bah. I haven't. Infact I kinda wanna just start all over again and pick up Abel.
I can teach you my Ken tricks.
1. Jump kick -> sweep.
2. Jump back in the corner, especially when not necessary.
3. Turbo your punch buttons so you can do as many srk's possible each round.
4. Wake up ultra, always.
5. Taunt when you are losing.
Do this and you can be just like me!
Edit: The mk button has become my best friend.
...That's mortal kombat for those not in the know.
3 good setups
1. Step kick kara throw. This is sweet because it opens the door to step kick fierce srk, which will lead to a counterhit and full ultra off an fadc.
2. Crouching strong kara throw. For whatever reason, kara throws come out like butter immediately after a crouch strong.
2. Wake up kara throw. Pisses people off. Distance yourself properly and kara throw their ass back to the ground when they get up. Give them a crouching forward xx tatsu the next time.
" I dont want to sound like a dick but there are WAAAYY too many of these "I suck help me" threads. Im thinking someone should just make an official one people can post there. "It seems like thats what the haunts thread was doing since we all chime in our 2 cents along with haunts there.
I say the more you get beat the better you get. I learn so much more from getting my ass handed to me than by dominating someone who doesn't really know how to play. I think the more you play, it doesn't necessarily mean you're learning one character better...you're also learning OTHER character, that you play against better. You learn what a typical Sagat, Cammy, Ryu, Ken, Akuma usually do and you adapt so you're not getting your ass spanked everytime. Anytime you want some free W's let me know, I'll always play.
