How about you do what feels best to you. :slight_smile: There’s no right or wrong in using a joystick. If you like it on your lap, put it on your lap, if you like it on a table, put it on a table.

It’s all personal preference dude.

this. For me though, I like using the fightstick on my lap.

How to get better? Read more strategy on srk. Learn your character. play challenge mode. And overall just play smart. It doesn’t happen overnight, it takes a while to practice and get better.

Hey I am in the same boat as you…check out my lone warrior thread/ Practice in the training room until it feels like you are doing it naturally instead of concentrating on what move to do.

Same boat as you, op.

Practice practice practice. I’m going to play unraked online matches when I get mine.
