Nine tips that Street Fighter 5's tutorial won't teach you
[FOREIGN] Nine tips that Street Fighter 5 tutorial won't teach you.
Number one, find your go to move.
Hit up training mode so that you can learn your character's go to moves that control vertical and horizontal space.
Find your pokes and anti air.
Worry about combos later.
Find your cross ups for more damage opportunities.
Study each of your character's moves and learn how to apply them.
Number 2, combos, bread-and-butter.
A crucial part of any fighting game is maximizing damage on an opportunity.
But, if you don't have the muscle memory to execute the harder ones, stick with the basics, the bread-and-butters.
This is your staple combo, something you can perform consistently and does decent damage.
Every character has one.
Number three, Max or consistent damage?
Don't always go for max damage combos.
Spacing and potential opportunities for damage after the combo may be more advantages.
For example instead of going for max damage off a single opportunity, You choose to execute a combo that pushes the opponent to the corner.
In the corner, the potential for consistent damage from cross-ups and wake up games and resets is greater than the single match damage opportunity.
Number 4, Hitting 101, don't always attack up close.
Use short and long range attack strategies.
Don't feel compelled that your attacks should always make contact with the opponent.
Beginners make the mistake of taking the fight directly in front of their opponent for the entire round.
Whipping fast attacks at different ranges has its advantages.
First, the space controlled by the width move may stuff your opponents techs.
Second, it may prevent the opponent from advancing into your space.
Number five, situational.
A round is a series of moment to moment situations And each situation provides a problem and a solution.
Most situations have a nature, annoying and responding to them properly takes time and experience.
For example, a common situation is an opponent jumping in on you.
Use your anti-airs.
You opponent landing a lot of comma hits on you?
Stop trying to attack after you block.
Conserve your movement.
Your moves are an extension of yourself.
Use them not just for damage, but for answers to specific situations.
I made the mistake of relying on strong attacks, hard punch and hard kick over weaker ones like light punch and light I wanted to hurt the opponent by capitalizing on every opportunity with the most damage, but this just restricts the game.
Your normals and [UNKNOWN] are more than just tools for damage, they can be applied to a number of situations, restricting your opponents options, harassing them by constantly picking out something in their space, or stuffing their attacks.
Number seven, the rhythm.
Avoid falling into a predictable rhythm by using a set pattern.
Do something unexpected, even crazy to throw off your opponent's mind set.
A pattern has a predictable rhythm.
For example Sweet chucking fireballs without changing your timing or position in the pattern.
Easily exploitable by your opponent.
[NOISE] In this case stepping a few paces back before throwing a fireball or pausing for a brief second do enough to change the rhythm.
Number eight, pattern Recognizing patterns strengthens your ability to adapt, to anticipate and to have a quick answer for a disadvantaged situation.
Rhythm is an important role in pattern recognition, a required skill for any competitive game.
By recognizing patterns you can come up with answers to the obstacle and stay one step ahead of your opponent.
Number nine, fear Just being in someone's immediate space is enough to manipulate their behavior.
WHen people are scared, they'll either fight or flee.
In fighting games, this means they'll probably jump back and/or walk away from the opponent, or hit a bunch of buttons to get the opponent out of your surrounding space.
Use this to influence your opponent's decision making process And they panic and change their strategy, commit dumb errors, or crumble under pressure.
Woah, that's a lot of info to digest.
Learning the fundamentals takes time, and executing them without hesitation An exercise in patience, but the payoff will be well worth it.
