This balance in arcade is BROKEN!

So I decided to get this.  I've been playing online getting my ass kicked, but it's been fun.  But when play arcade it reminds me of the busted difficulty that old fighting games have.  Usually I get to a fourth opponent and he is pulling off advanced follow ups and complex combos.  FOURTH GUY!!!!  I usually can't get a move in, and if I do, they pull off a last minute move that saves them.
 
For someone who is trying to get back into this game after a long time.  It seems like the programmers are just saying, fuck you, you don't belong here.

If you can't tell, I just had my feelings hurt.  By a street fighter... through  my balls.

Play online more, get your ass kicked for awhile until you get better. Then you'll figure out that arcade mode is pretty easy even on the hardest difficulty. But by that time you really shouldn't care that much about the arcade mode.

Pretty much spot on.
 
You'll get better by playing more, like understanding the basics of zoning and learning which moves are safe among other basic skills.  As long as you're dedicated to becoming better, you should see an improvement in your matches.

You lose on arcade mode? on SSFIV? Try Super Turbo bro.
 
I'm afraid its not that the programmers hate you, you just don't understand the mechanics of a Street Fighter game. Even on the hardest difficulty the AI is so predictable and doesn't block.

Yeah, arcade mode is really jokes because of how easy it is. Have you played Super Turbo arcade mode? Prepare to be destroyed. We have enough of these threads, I'm locking it.
