I’m a little annoyed. I just realized you have to spam counter Drive Impact to pick up certain cases where your attack recovery ends really late during your opponent’s DI window. I thought if I tapped it once during their DI that I would get the counter, assuming it was possible to cancel it at any point. But in very specific cases I could’ve caught the counter if I kept spamming the buttons later in my opponent’s DI.
It makes sense from a technical standpoint but it makes the whole thing a little janky.
Drive Impact could benefit from some adjustments. It’s my least favorite part of SF6 as it is now.
In more news, Street Fighter put up its battle pass yesterday.
The interesting thing about this one is that if you pay for it and get all the way through, you get your fighter coins back, so if you play enough (it uses Kudos for unlocks, 14.5K Kudos will get you through), you effectively get your money back.
Might take 500 or so ranked matches, other methods would lower that number.
I pretty much decided to main Chun in this, mostly for the walk speed (Juri might be a bit better for that though)
So far it seems Dee Jay is my main. But I have a few others to try yet (Zangief, Guile).
I recently saw someone mention that if your opponent is in burnout, it’s like you’re playing Street Fighter 5 again. Hah.
Speaking of that game, I’m determined to go back to play it again one day. The Ken animation is soooo tight and crunchy.
hit me up on xbox or discord if you want to spar some. gamertag Harkonis discord harkonis7
I made it to Platinum and I feel like I know nothing. I went 2-0 against a Ken to rank up and decided to go to a custom room to mess around. He beat me 5-1. Once I run out of my bag of tricks, I’m toast!
Time to work on the next set of moves.
anyone interested in a fight night on fridays? custom room and just sparring?
I would love that.
BTW, my controller arrived. It seems tomorrow will be practice day for me. :D
Worknight for me unfortunately.
I seem to finally be starting to pick this up, got my first 10-streak in ranked.
Dee Jay is like my worst MU by far.
People say to drive impact him since most of his good normals aren’t cancellable. I haven’t fought against him enough to try it! The mix of characters in ranked is so out of whack. I don’t think I’ve seen a Luke since release day, and I’ve fought JP three times in ranked out of 306 matches.
It looks like Manon, Juri, Marisa, Cammy, and Ken are literally half of my battles. Haha!
If a single night would work best for anyone, we can probably adjust. goal is to have plenty of people covering plenty of skill levels.
Some people may wonder why I voted. Well, I picked this up because I couldn’t help myself, but I haven’t had a lot of time to devote to it yet, just a little World Tour. I was actually thinking of giving Luke a try, though!
Trying the hitbox here (had a few issues with one or two of the buttons) I realized something: I suck at this. I’ll always suck at this. I’ll guess I’ll just go modern with a gamepad and call it a day because I’m just not good at this.
I’ll try some more, of course. Maybe I’ll get better. But not today. Today I’ll just play Final Fantasy XIV or something. :)
Nothing wrong with modern controls. Maybe wait till you’re in the right mindset to learn hitbox. Learning it has to be part of the fun and it sounds like you just want to get in there and fight some streets.
I think I underestimated the amount of effort that would require. Or overestimated my motivation, which is at a premium because I’m always so tired. I was hoping the new controller would make some things easier. It does (hey, I can do supers now on classic!) but there’s a huge learning curve in front of me and I found out I just don’t have enough energy or motivation to climb it right now. I just want to sit and have fun because I’m so tired all the time.
Anyway, I’m just venting. I’ll take it slow and in time I’ll probably be mediocre at it. Maybe that will be enough. And maybe I’ll have fun in the process. I certainly hope so.
Which day of the week can you absolutely NOT play in a Fight Night?
- Any day
Sunday for me is impossible. But most other days I should be able to play around 5 PM PDT for an hour or two.
