SFV 5v5 Topanga Charity Cup is on.
俺たちにはできることがある～STREET FIGHTER V 5 ON...
Chris G is that you?Man...
I have so much trouble grappling with the mental gymnastic involved in fighting games. I'm not talking about the mindgames and such but rather, how one perceive taking L's or seeing how badly they can perform and so on. This is by far the hardest part for me in any fighting games. Whenever something's wrong I venture in unhealthy, self-critic/self-loathing territory and I'm aware all that shit I say about myself isn't true but I can't help it.
I tend to be alright with taking L's but it depends. There's time where it's the usual where you do your stuff but it didn't score you a win, I can...deal with that. Then there's matches where you get completely stomped and it makes you feel like you're completely new to the game. Like, the match where everything you attempt seem to be in vain and at that point it build up and up and up and yeah I fall into that awful mindset and as it build up I obviously end up even more trash and so on.Chris G is that you?
Seriously though that sorta thinking is an echo chamber of negativity that only trains you to fall apart immediately after a single.mistake. and as Chris G proved back when he was trapped in that "I hafta play perfect " mindset it's nothing but a trap that holds you back. The moment he stopped worrying about L and mistakes was the moment he started enjoying himself and performing better more consistently at a pro level and that's in an environment where you win or go hungry.
As a casual player, as someone whose doin it online or just locally because it's what you love theres no reason to let these things hold you back. Learn to laugh as you make mistakes. It's about seeing your progress more than never taking an L.
Well if you like throws and Anti air Thunder is your guy lol. Hell his AA is even great for footsies. Beats l and m and trades well with heavies.Ahhh! The feeling you get when you're slowly crawling into someone's mind in a fighting game is priceless.
I was playing KI exhibition with someone random and he was 5-0 on me. I started figuring him out and got to 5-3. He then went into panic mode and started making the worst mistakes. After I won my 4th match, he left and messaged me "ggs". This 5-4 set is more satisfying then any 10-0 win I get.
After playing Hisako for sometime I am seeing her shortcomings. She does not have any good wake up attacks. Her down HP anti air is only good in some situations as it is way too slow. Her worst matchup is Riptor as it is super hard to get out of her pressure because of the mentioned weaknesses. Also Hisako's grab reach is ridiculously bad as you have to be french kissing the opponent to grab him. Nonetheless, I think she is super fun to use. Her parry is amazing.
I think it's time I move on to another character. Not sure which one yet. Maybe Sabrewulf or Thunder. Both are not too complex and fit my playstyle.
Amen to that.That's what I love about KI so much. Every character has a large list of shit you look at and it makes you think "holy shiy that's overpowered and broken!"
The great thing is though that the games core mechanics are so well built that they can get away with the whole roster having crazy overpowered stuff. Breakers, counterbreakers and shadow breakers mean it dont matter how good they are at opening you up or racking up damage if they arent good at reads and use flowchart combo patterns. You'll break em or counter break them and all that damage is gone because it's all potential damage only till you cash out your combo with an ender.
I cant even imagine what that sorta system would've done to other games given how repetitive some games combos are. Odds on it would force just about any title to start over on movesets and combo options otherwise the bottlenecks they put in place to prevent infinite stuff and loops in their current forms would force the game to stall out and suffer breakers every other moment. I'd imagine if you just slapped it on one at random youd see a ton of timeouts occur right off the bat lol.
KI design is from the ground up to let you have fun like this. It needs to come back.
Oh my god I remember the killgore wins folks dhad on some streams. No one knew he was even an idea then suddenly a whole extra character is out. Folks were so hype seeing if hed overheat or clutch out the win first.
Remember when people were saying how Eyedol was too boring and broken in the old games to salvage him. Then they showed his trailer with the split head and stance change. I thought it was a brilliant idea eventhough I never liked stance characters. I need to play him more.Oh my god I remember the killgore wins folks dhad on some streams.

God help me but I love playing Eyedol. Dudes a trip with the stance floppon constantly but every move he has feel so damned strong. I probably played better with my Thunder or Aria thoigh.
The moment you see a good Kanra though. God damn is that scary. It feels like nowhere is safe but like you cant afford to slow down or you know itll only get worse with the traps. There was a season or two where he was prominent as hell in top 4.Remember when people were saying how Eyedol was too boring and broken in the old games to salvage him.

My least favorite characters in the game are Combo and Tusk. I cant for the life of me play with them. Kanra also, for me, requires too much micro management.
I'll be playing later today. I'll invite you.Hey zoodoo, I want to play more matches against you.
Does anyone wants to play KI? I feel that the game is more alive than logs of newer releases.
Btw, played some BBTAG with KaneBlueriver, he kicked my ass but convinced me that the game is super fun, I want to learn more from it
I dont know if my team of Orie and Neo is good, or wherenI could learn their tricks
It's really insane the varying playstyles in this game. I'm still sad I jumped on this game so late.Oh my god I remember the killgore wins folks dhad on some streams.

God help me but I love playing Eyedol. Dudes a trip with the stance floppon constantly but every move he has feel so damned strong. I probably played better with my Thunder or Aria though.
I lo e the entire roster though. So much to do. From Spinals mixups and pressure from the skulls he gets from shieldcounters, to Aganos bein a big body with huge hitboxes who can shrink the screen with walls to force you in then put you through those walls for damage, to Omen having a million projectile tools it's all exciting.
Just look at this roster. Its amazing.
I strongly feel footsie loving 1v1 folks chose the wrong title if they weren't playing this.
I really like that Riptor outfit too. First time I saw it I remember getting a good laugh at it.Played some KI. My wife always loves Aria. She finds all the character designs cool.
I then showed her the alt on Retro Riptor that dresses her like a cheerleader. Yes the dinosaur cyborg.
She now has a new favorite lol. Best dino alt.
Her exact quote between laughing was "Objectively Aria is obviously best waifu, but Riptor is MY waifu because she is the most Kawaii."
Fuck I love that woman. :D
Maybe you should stop blocking so much and let them hit you?
They rarely do when they're motivated by pure salt.
O_oI played a 35 matches set with someone in KI online. I lost 30 - 5 and it was one of the best set I have ever played. The player was really good. He played Mira and I played Hisako. The mind game from both side was insane. That was pure KI fun. Damn this game is sooo good.
I could not find the player in my recent player list. I guess its because he was playing on pc. His gamertag is Scars.
