I am looking to give fighting games a go after watching some of the Capcom and EVO tournaments this year. I currently have Killer Instinct on Xbox One and have had a few matches against some friends. However, they tend to beat me very easily (I had a win loss record of 1/12 yesterday, with the one win I think the other player took pity to let me win essentially). I get cornered and can not counter the attacks (or do not know how to I should say).
So, are there any tips or advise or places you can tell me to look at that will help bring my level up in terms of being able to position myself, what counter moves are good to learn, what characters are good to look at for a rookie level player, etc?
