      Because he's forced to acknowledge he's shit when his transformation is over and he can't make himself anymore of a clown by finding excuses.

      I don't even play fighting games but this, attempt at a meme, is awful. The whole point of this base image is the person putting on the Clown make up is supposed to be hearing or experiencing a group of things that get progressively more ludicrous. So maybe if all the statements were in quotations to indicate he was hearing someone else say it, with the final one being, I'm better than you, you just got lucky, then the meme might base sense but it still wouldn't work well because the underlying topic just isn't clown world meme material.

        moron I literally just said that I'm not good at them. If a game is only fun when you are good, thats bad game design. Hard games are good when the process to get good is fun. You can call it a skill issue if you want, but it is up to the game to make me think it is worth getting good in the first place

                I think that anon was trying to say that he is a fighting casual (no offense) because the genre doesn't really give much incentive to git gud. Which I kinda agree because most fighting games are pretty barebones in contents and its difficulty comes from the AI reading your inputs and way higher damage output for bosses, thus making it unfun to learn to git gud by just playing the game casually.

          This sounds like an IGN or Kotaku journalist's philosophy boiled down into its most basic form, what are you even trying to say? What makes learning a fighter's system and the unique tools of your character that much worse than learning how to stop dying in Reddit Souls or whatever the fuck it is you like, other than the objectively shitty in-game tutorial material?

          I've never played a fighting game and gitting gud would take too long so I'll continue never playing them.

          Fuck around with people who aren't good then, you might be surprised (or re-affirmed if it just isn't your thing).

            Finding a good pool of beginners in a fighting game can be a monumental task, assuming the game even has a good pool of players still actively playing it.
            Thems Fightin Herds or Fightcade is where I'd point new players to go but both have drawbacks. Drawbacks I'm sure I'll get a lot of (you)'s over.

              Ranked mode is actually good for fighting people at your level.

              One session I dropped from floor 7 to floor 4 in strive due to playing on floor 8 and losing most of my matches. Next session I made it back to floo 7 in literally 6 matches after winning 3-0 every match. Even though I don't like strive ranked system and think it would be much better with proper elo or glicko, it still managed to match me against players of my own skill.

            My issue with getting better at fighting games is that a significant chunk of it boils down to practicing the same thing over and over again until you build the right muscle memory. I dont find that fun, it is tedious. I have no issue whith learning characters and their matchups, since that actually involves stratagizing and learning through experience.
            >journelist argument
            Then you fundamentally dont understand what I am saying. I am not saying "games need easy mode" or "games need to be accessable". Fuck that, I generally prefer harder games than easier ones. All I'm saying is that the process to git gud needs to be enjoyable.
            An example of a recent "hard" game that really enjoyed getting better at would be rain world. The game is brutally unfair, but the more you play the more you learn. Each death can be seen as an oppurtunity to think "what did I do wrong, and how can I improve". Not "damn I messed up my combo, guess I got to go practice mode and grind some more"

              You're not going to get good at fighting games if you think its about memorizing combos.

                It genuinely does not. I'm not going to pretend I'm great a fighting games but the majority of practice I get is within actual matches trying shit out and trying to land things that I think might work. I worked out a corner BnB in DBFZ with my team purely off improvisation and use it every time now.

              Sorry for getting my assumptions a bit wrong then, but it definitely sounds to me like you don't like combo-centric games/characters in fighters. When that Samurai Shodown game's rollback patch kicks in, that's literally the only thing you have to do to be good at that game other than maybe learning a few slightly strange but not difficult inputs.
              >"damn I messed up my combo, guess I got to go practice mode and grind some more"
              Okay but even in games that are crazy heavy on combos, this isn't usually what gets you killed, it's what you were doing that leads to that first thing you got hit with. Dropping a combo should only result in death if you were doing something way the fuck out of your current ability to do in the first place

              While it's true that execution is important in fighting games, in the sense that you should be able to perform your character specials on command, learning combos is in no way required to perform at a level above complete beginner. Learning proper spacing and punishing moves is much, much more important, which is why it's called "fundamentals".

              If climbing ranked is important for you to have fun, I guarantee you could get to at least the equivalent of Gold easily if your only focus was on fundamentals, no combos required.

                Maybe I should give fighting games a real second chance, but I'm still not entirely convinced they can be enjoyed without taking the time to grind out the more hand-precise aspects of the genre.

                You're going to have hard time enjoying something if you go into it with the expectation that you're not going to enjoy it. Double so if you're not interested in the learning process and/or go in with the mentality that you have to become the best.

                Maybe I wouldnt think that way if literally every response fighting game fans have wasnt "you only dont enjoy fighting games because you suck". That implies that you will only enjoy it once you master it. Hence my reason for saying that the process to get good needs to enjoyable in the first place.

                Not all fighting games are for everyone so it's a good idea to randomly bounce around, even with shitty and obscure emulated ones, until you recognize the kind of shit you really like.
                Execution is a skill you can't avoid having to learn even in something like Divekick, but there's always a few characters in almost any game that require very, very little of it.

                How do I git gud with charge characters? I've always liked Leona but I can't play her because I'm a retard.

                Charges for KOF huh.
                Get accustomed to holding charges if you aren't already. If you REALLY have a hard time doing charges in combos for Leona, then find something that's easy for you to do that still incorporates them. At the very least try to do pokes into 2[8]A/C or something.

                I mean don't force yourself to play a genre you don't like. Fighting games are not for everyone (no genre is tbh).

                But if you're slightly interested but put off by the execution barrier, know that it exists but it is probably lower than you think.

                the odd but true answer is to grind arcade until you can finish without issue, and then just dive into games with reckless abandon. you'll still suck, but as long as you're keeping a positive mentality and working to improve your skill as opposed to just winning, it'll work out. add wiki crawling and practice lua scripts as needed.

                I'd recommend any game that strikes your fancy visually, that resonates with you on a stylistic level first. That makes you want to play it. And optionally that you can try for free or that you don't mind paying for, since the entry price of fg is usually expensive.

                Then choose a character that you like the look of and want to play (I personally like huge dudes and big fuckoff swords). Learn normals and specials. Learn to cancel a normal into a special. Dont bother with combos. Hop online and get wrecked. Learn about spacing, punishing and controlling the neutral game. Hop online and focus on one task (punish with anti air). Do it poorly but realize you're doing it, you're making progress. You might start winning matches now that you're punishing your opponent's dumb decisions. Get wrecked by higher level players who do the same to you. Learn higher rewards punish to capitalize better...

                It's an infinite cycle of self improvement, and to be frank you dont have to grind all that much, but you do have to be centered and realize if/when you're making progress.

                Combos are unironically the easy part.
                If you can do a chicane/double hairpin in a racing game or crouch jumping in an fps you have the physical ability to "do a combo". It's just a knowledge problem which is something that applies to all genres equally you just aren't already 'in' on this genre.

        I don't agree with this, I'll happily admit that I'm shit at fighting games but I've always failed in my attempts to get good. Acknowledgement of one's own flaws doesn't necessarily imply that you're capable of overcoming them. Sometimes a shitter is simply a shitter.

    Any pvp game where the the entire outcome can be determined within the first 1/4 of it's duration is anti fun. Snowballing is only ever fun for the winner.

Smash Bros will ALWAYS be the best fighting game because it's win condition allows for more upsets.

          Not him, but I was always under the impression that Neutral meant that no one was in a position where they were chasing/running away from each-other. Essentially neither player was controlling the flow of the fight.

            Anonymous

            That's correct, but as that anon said, even in phases where no player is in control of the flow of the match, some characters still have the upper hand over others due to different frame data, thus why he was arguing over the use of the term "neutral". Which is a shit semantics argument but whatever.

            In neutral, where no player is in control of the flow, your goal is to understand your and your opponent's tools and mindset to make the best decision and gain the upper hand.

            You are not wrong but its more like a phase where both players consider their options. It's where grapplers thrive despite being low tier mechanically. One read, one mistake and bad neutral can cause you lose FAST.

        Not all fighting games are for everyone so it's a good idea to randomly bounce around, even with shitty and obscure emulated ones, until you recognize the kind of shit you really like.
        Execution is a skill you can't avoid having to learn even in something like Divekick, but there's always a few characters in almost any game that require very, very little of it.
        [...]
        Charges for KOF huh.
        Get accustomed to holding charges if you aren't already. If you REALLY have a hard time doing charges in combos for Leona, then find something that's easy for you to do that still incorporates them. At the very least try to do pokes into 2[8]A/C or something.

        I think my problem is that I tend to hop a lot, and how do you hold the charges while hoping or running forward?

          >how do you hold the charges while hoping or running forward?
          By snapping back to that downback real quick. In the first place, some people do hops as "reverse super jumps" because of the all too familiar DandyJ videos, so it's not too hard to quickly get right back to starting your charge if you can get into the habit of that

            I'll look up the guy then, thanks for the pointer, anon.

            I dont play KoF so I dont know about hopping but you cant hold your charge while moving forwards. This is a trade off since charge moves are usually better than regular specials. You have to think tactically and decide whether it's better to hold your charge or approach the opponent at any given time

            >but you cant hold your charge while moving forwards
            Yeah, that's why I have problems gitting gud at charge character. I can't wrap my head around how to maneuver around the stage while also still able to keep the charge in check.

            I think you can hold down/up charge in KOF by running forward and switching to down forward input to continue running and charging down at the same time.

      Leona isn't super charge reliant, most routes & confirms let you build charge mid combo.
      The only different is for CD and AA FK that have you preemptively charge.
      Just practice. As soon as you input j214C for example go to 2 as you as you input it, which lets you charge before the buffered special even comes out giving you more time. You'll find that there are a LOT of spots you can charge.

      By design, grapplers can't be top characters. I imagine games where they are aren't known at all. It all depends on the player's dedication (it needs to be higher than other people, since matchups will be harder), and how shit their opponent is.
      King in Tekken 7 is the best he's ever been. Potemkin in +R can be really gross. Waldstein in UNIST used to be really good. Clark in KoF XV has tools to be potentially good. Tina in DoA is decent. Laura in SFV can win tourneys when iDom plays her.

    good. now you can start learning. go play any character and just practive blocking all of their moves. Don't attack. Just block for a few rounds. Once you feel like you sort of know what they do, do a round where you fight back. Do this for the whole roster and you will be dominating that fighting game sooner than later.

    Fighting games are not intuitive. I know Soul Calibur is poorly balanced but it was popular because casual players could figure out chains of moves in just a few minutes of play. That is what players want, not archaic systems based on glitches from SF2.

    The only other genre I can think of that requires so much investment just to play are MOBAs which are fucking trash games. People want games with low skill floors for entry with high skill ceilings. Your genre sucks and will stink until a developer implements a decent gameplay system from the ground up that doesn’t revolve around fucking Street Fighter

      Only the casual gays who drop the game after beating arcade mode or playing matches for a few weeks with their friends.
      >high skill ceilings
      Complete anathema to the above. You can't have a game that's easy to pick up and then add tools that give you an edge over casuals at the expense of sinking 23947213984231 hours on learning them.

            Yes you can it’s called matchmaking. Let your nephew play enough matches on say something like Splatoon and you’ll see a baby mode you’ll normally never see where people don’t swim in the ink and can barely aim at each other. Since the game is aimed at kids and adults they have ensured anyone can play. All the casuals need is a game that feels fun to play at its simplest level. Current fighting games are not fun at basic levels with the exceptions of Tekken and SC, which have problems with their high end play admittedly. But it’s not a hard stretch to see something like those succeed at low end and high end play with plenty of journey inbetween. SC kept trying to do that very thing but was unsuccessful in the last few games

              Low skill floor means anyone can start playing. That's all it guarantees. It doesn't guarantee that you'll get anywhere.

                Clunky shit like SF2 isn’t low skill floor. The game does not feel like a proper game that you have agency in for a while after picking it up. The game only became popular because of the footfall of arcades. It would not have been popular otherwise

        low floors brind casuals in, which is how you keep a community alive. if a franchise can't replenish their community after shizos lose it and flee, and random chance takes their other diehards one by one, then the scene just dies. but if your game doesn't make a complete newfag want to kill themselves, then there's a chance they convert from casual to hardcore, which is what you need. most old games aren't being saved by the newfags, but just by transferring some hardcore's from other games without making any new hardcore players.

        at least, that's how I see it. I also recognize that it's probably a zero sum game, where you have to take some off the top to lower the bottom. either that, or some other artificial way to pump new player numbers to keep ladders from devolving into 10 tourney grinders and the newfag getting raped.

      I got a hitbox despite being a keyboardchad. I think it's a decent bit more comfy and some inputs do feel easier/less strenuous to do just because of the buttons. Definitely a luxury upgrade if you're not going to locals or anything though and have a decent mechanical keyboard.

        not a hitbox unfortunately, but I did get to fiddle with a snack box micro as CEO last year at their booth, and it definitely feels different enough to me to justify wasting the money. travel time is much lower, and I don't feel like I'm about to missinput with my knuckle like on a keyboard. I'm a fat fingered lardass though, so that might just be me.
        the micro was too small for my lap, but it does seem like the perfect edc for my bag. bring that and a shit box laptop wherever for some mame level fightan on the go

          I was using hitbox as a generic term. I actually have the chinkbox that's I believe is around the size of the micro, though longer I think, and also has mechanical switches. Definitely prefer it over an actual hitbox. Both the buttons and the size are way nicer IMO.
          >travel time is much lower, and I don't feel like I'm about to missinput with my knuckle like on a keyboard
          Lower travel time is great and I say that having a keyboard with one of the lowest travels you can get. I don't have that issue misinputing but I think the bigger buttons combined with the lower travel time genuinely helps with some inputs like 632146 or wavedashing in Tekken. At the very least it's more comfortable to do them.

    I'm bad at fighting games and only care about improving enough for the story modes but the first game in any series' story mode is always absolutely brutal because these games are meant to drain quarters at an arcade. So I can't even begin to get invested in most of these games.
    No I don't care about characters just because of their designs or gimmicks or because they're tge grappler or the zoner.

      no chance given that Rugal isn't in '97 since he died in '95; Orochi would've been the boss and he's well known as the easiest of the bunch though since its SNK bosses we're talking about its about the same difference between surviving 3 minutes in the ring with a well-trained boxer vs 3 against Muhammad Ali

        mmmmmmmm, can't fucking remember the order in which they came
        or the names of most characters
        the one i played came in compilation disk for PS2 so i could have clicked anyone
        i do remember beating Rugal with Billy Cane but now that i think about it the 3 guys who get possessed by Orochi and died were also playable (i think they were called Yashiro Yeremy and the other guy)

          That might've been KOF '98. It was a dream match, meaning all the characters from previous KOFs would appear, so its the only one where Rugal and the New Faces Team show up besides 2002UM and 15

    please god
    you don't need to spend hundreds of hours in training mode before you go online, you just find a dude you like, try him out and go online, figure out all the finer details as you go along.
    will you lose? yes, but you're going to lose in any genre that you're going in as a new player, it's fine, just fuck around and figure shit out as you go, no one gives a shit if you lose

        Dota 2 has people yelling at you if you fuck up ever so slightly and kills friendships. People think fighting games are hard, I think MOBAs are even harder at a mental and emotional level.

          I legit stopped playing CS and picked up fighting games partially because it was too stressful dealing with random teams after my stack died especially when I was rusty from a break. I feel like most of the people saying that shit have never been as into those genres as they get with fighting games nor played them at a high level. It's even funnier when you check the generals or the twitter for some top players and those bros are legit having mental breakdowns over losing. A dude made an elosite for Strive and people started begging him to hide their names on it because it was stressing them out too much.

            I used to play a lot of Dota 2 with my friends but I started to get burnt out and found it too stressful. Honestly, I think part of it is matches take up a good amount of time which killed my interest.
            With fighting games, I can plug in a decent number of matches in a hour and they can be over fairly quickly. I also find it much easier to analyze my mistakes in a fighting game than a moba since the matches are shorter and it's easier to see what I fucked up.
            I'm a shitter at Dota though, never went out of my way to improve outside of just playing with friends and taking occasional advice from them. WIth fighting games I was a lot more motivated to git gud. Not saying one genre is easier or harder than the other, but I think fighting games are easier to break down into pieces and figure out what's going on IMO.

                I enjoy him very much. He is not the neutral monster he was in Xrd and rekka specials have been replaced with a canned extension to each special and a command dash. Nonetheless, he still has a solid neutral button in 2H and I love the mindgames over delaying the special extensions to catch mashing and using the dash extension to check the opponent's reactions.

                Sounds fun, probably try him out later down the line. Good luck with your Sin matches and yeah I hope the rating site gets updated. I beat a couple of players that definitely were a lot stronger than me yesterday and it disappointed me to not see my e-dick number not go up since December.

      yea pretty much I play some fighting games with my brother and usually at first we evenly matched or he beats me but as soon as I start winning more because he likes to do the same shit over and over again or I use a move he doesn't like he quits.

    What’s a fighting game with great tutorials or single-player content that really help you understand the game and feel accomplished? I’d feel a lot more comfortable playing online once I have a chance to have fun with it on my own for a bit, like how you’d maybe only play Starcraft or Unreal online after mucking around with the campaigns.

      Granblue Fantasy Versus has the usual Arcsys tutorial, which are usually good, and a side-scrolling beat-up story mode where you level up character and get buy stat increasing gear. Also has a tower you can climb the rankings in. Game doesn't have rollback netcode or a lot of players though

      Under Night has a great tutorial
      Xrd is good too but might go a bit too in depth
      I hear people say good things about KI's but I've never played the game
      Honestly picking a game based on the tutorial is a bad idea, just pick a game that looks cool or has a character you think is cool, learning resources are easy enough to find outside the game

      IMO even if a game has a very good tutorial and single player, it won't make you feel accomplished until you actually play online and deal with people
      a huge part of playing against other people is gauging their behavior, how they react to stuff, habits, and at the same time, they're gauging your shit as well.
      and most people aren't assholes, they're aren't going to give you shit for losing especially if you're new (you may occasionally encounter assholes, but that's any online game)

      Shame the rollback and crossplay boom only came after they started dumbing down games in a vain attempt to appeal to casuals. At least Arcsys and SNK are retrofitting rollback into their older titles

    I wish fighting games didn’t have command normals in addition to specials, normals, and grabs. All of your standard options should be covered in the 4/6 buttons and then you have the command specials that are harder to combo into but have great utility; adding additional command normals into this mix just dilutes the distinctiveness of a character when half of their moves are already going to be useless. Reducing the time it takes for a beginner to figure out what a character’s useful options are and memorize all the inputs will reduce player turnover significantly. As time goes on I think KoF’s 4 button system with viable air attacks via hop-ins could be the most intuitive system with just a little bit of streamlining.

    Do people still play USFIV? Want to get back into fighting games before 6 comes out but it is the only one in the genre I own on Steam and I don’t want to pay for V at this point.

    Unrelated, but how do people memorize long combos in anime games and actually use them consistently in matches? I can barely wrap my head around 2-3 input bnb combos in classic arcade fighters so when I see 30-hit combos in videos of Melty Blood or Blazblue or even just Killer Instinct my brain just melts.

      It becomes automatic to be honest, but an easy way to learn is to break it into chunks. Practice the first chunk until it's pretty consistent, then add the the next chunk
      As for playing USFIV you can undoubtedly find people to play against if you use external shit like threads here or discord but purely in game you might be fucked.
      Ask at your locals if you know where that is, someone can probably play and since it's local the games should be pretty good

        Yeah, I know. I've come to learn that I need at least some dripfeed of progress/success to keep enjoying a game and that hitting some constant roadblock or loss state will eventually just end up making me feel bad. I get emotionally affected.
        Like I play Fortnite sometimes, that game has bots sprinkled in the matches. I know that there's bots, that they're easy kills, but I still feel good when I get them.

      Have to change your approach and mentality. Instead of being fixated on winning, focus on learning and actively thinking about your own play. Think why do you press the buttons you do in the given situations. Think why are you losing. Think back on what happened in the round/game you just played. If the answer is "I don't know", you have something you have to figure out.

        I've tried that, but honestly I'm not really any good at reviewing my own play, and it's not really fun.
        I started playing Nioh 2 a while back, I got stuck on an early boss and couldn't really figure out why. I only made progress after uploading footage for anons to review and they gave me specific actionable advice based on watching me play.
