Seth help.

#1 Posted by laserbolts (5319 posts) -

So I just went out and bought ae. This game is awesome so far and feels a lot different from mk9. I'm not sure if this is why I suck so much or not but is it just me or is Seth fucking impossible to beat? I have it on normal and I'm using Ryu. Anyone have any tips on how to beat this guy? I tried using more skill but I think I'm using all I have.

Jumping roundhouse, crouching roundhouse. Seriously.

Watch tutorials and matches on Youtube. Forget about the single player and play online. Play a lot. Lose a lot.

don't worry if you can't beat Seth. The single player in any fighting game is akin to playing with bots in an FPS game. As such they all have their patterns and whatever random moves you do will eventually beat it.  
 
Use single player as a nice fun way to get used to a character, and the practice combos, moves, etc.

I play against CPU sometimes to practice against DP mashing because the CPU will wreck you if you miss links

Seth is easy hit the training mode and learn your combos then go online. Then go to casuals and tournaments.

when in doubt, low kick

and when that doesn't work, grab.

or am I thinking of Soul Caliber...

@TechHits Yeah I think I'll give that a shot. I'm 0-5 now. I think this fucking 360 d pad is screwing me too.

Daigo cant beat Seth either

#14 Posted by laserbolts (5319 posts) -
@Rhaknar Haha nice he did get worked pretty bad.

@laserbolts: I'm serious, jumping roundhouse, crouching roundhouse. I don't know if they fixed it in AE, but in Vanilla and Super Seth would basically refuse to block this if you kept doing it on his wakeup, regardless of difficulty.

@StarvingGamer Thanks for the input but I just used zangief and spammed lariats like another user said and seriously rolled through this on hardest difficulty. I can't believe how cheap that is. If only it worked online.

So after 8 terrible losses I discovered I can search for people of the same skill. Finally got a win.

@laserbolts: Seth is a powerhouse if it wasnt for his hp he would be broken lol. Basicly you have to punish him hard! Block his 90% of the game attacking you and when you get a change punish hard for that 10% and youll do much better!
