Is vanilla still a viable means of practicing on?

I have/ had Ultimate, but I visited a cousins house recently. He has a habit of “losing” my things. Idc if ill see it for awhile/ ever again. So for now im stuck with vanilla, is it still decent for getting practice in? (despite some of the changes that im used to) Thanks :3

No, prolly not.

Of course it is. It’s what I’m using. The fundamentals are all the same and most of the differences can be accounted for in Ultimate by making a simple mental note.

yeah sure, exept a good chunks of the blockstrings have changed :/.

but yeah, if you can block/beat wolverine/akuma in vanilla, you sure as hell can do it in ultimate xD

For execution and experience, yes, for competitive purposes, no.
