I just got Street Fighter 4 today and am enthralled with it. I can’t seem to put it down. I’ve been lurking on SRK for a week or so now. More specifically, I’ve been lurking in the Dan section.
I’ve been having some trouble at grasping the new style in this game with the Cancels and what not. I’m actually having a bit of trouble on his 4th Normal Challenge. I believe it j.HP xx HK xx QCF+QCF+HP. Forgive me for the lack of terminology.
I can’t seem to get my input time down. I’ve been trying for what has seemed like forever. Can anyone help a Saikyo beginner out? :crybaby:
That’d be some crazy Super Jump cancel right? God those were a nightmare, don’t know how Vipers pull this out of their arse all the time
Proud to say I’ve completed every trial and got the achievement
Oh fuck Gen’s Hard#5 almost had me in tears, I had to cheat and use auto for the Hands cancel but very rarely I’d get to the Kicks at the end then I’d fall short by one or two kicks if I ever did ARGH!!!
I’ve been getting monkey stomped every time I play. I’ve even had a few messages from people exclaiming how good they are and how bad I suck. It wasn’t until I fought a Viper that I finally realized how Dan is supposed to be played.
I started keeping my distance by back dashing upon the opponent falling. I would constantly go back and forth to try and lure them in and then I would attack. I still lost but I did much better than all of my other matches.
I think one of my main problems is that I use HP Danku instead of LP or MP, thus leaving myself open. It’s not all bad though, as I usually LP+LK when the animation is over and they usually don’t tech it.
I guess I will keep trying. The path to Saikyo sure is tough.
Don’t bother with the hatemail live kids, they send their hatemail no matter if they win or lose.
I got a good one when I beat a guy 2-0 with Ryu.
“Fuck you scrub, you can’t do anything but throw fireballs that’s cheap.”
I replied “But I still won. Learn how to counter it”. No more replies there.
One said “YOU SUCK I AM DAIGO I WILL WIN EVO”. And so on and so forth. THey’re just a laugh. The character forums here are great for learning, watch the video threads and read in the combo and newb sticky threads. Mountains of knowledge.
