    Honestly, I do. It's just the style I play, sort of mid-range hit and skitter back. It's not full rushdown and it's not keep away, it's kind of like zoning, but not full-screen. It's like that in every fighting game I've played and it really does piss some people off.

    Footsie based I guess :).

    Weird.

    some people are like this. i have a friend who feels like the more he intensely practices with a character, the worse he gets, until he takes a break and comes back to find all the latent knowledge has sort of marinaded in his brain.

    i think that when you focus on a character it's easy to get stuck in ruts and patterns - you're more likely to develop habits, you're less able to inhabit the headspace of an opponent playing a different character, you are more likely to get frustrated if you're facing an obstacle because you don't have the perspective from playing other characters that might help you get creative, etc.

    whenever I get in a rut like that and try other characters and stuff I always just end up realizing how much better I am with them and go "what the hell am I doing" before I go back to my usual things

    I'm exactly the same way. In fact I make it a point to stop playing for a couple of weeks after events. It breaks all the bad habits you get into and when you come back your entire arsenal comes to mind each fight, rather than just going to what worked against someone over and over.

  • KnobKnob TURN THE BEAT BACK InternetSuper Moderator, Moderator mod
    That's what I think it mostly is. After long periods of just playing one character, I get burnt out and autopilot a bunch, matches start to blend together in my mind, I get xated on limitations instead of focusing on strengths. Switching characters lets me see mahes from a different perspective, and when I come back I'm reminded of why I play rog in the first place and my urge to learn and improve is rekindled.

    How do you use a TE in your lap? I lose control that way.

    This is me and I hate it. My new urge is wanting to try a Nova / Frank / Deadpool team, but anytime I lose I'm like "that wouldn't have happened with my original team" and then I get bitter.

    How do you lose control? Unless you're mashing violently, it should never even move.

    Was it Ultradavid who was talking about how sticks should have felt on the bottom to prevent them from slipping?

    'cause it's definitely an issue I have.

    As long as you keep your feet flat on the floor, I don't see how you can make it move. Then again, I pride myself on having tight execution and making as little excess movement as possible.

  • Evil MultifariousEvil Multifarious Registered User regular
    I ride the gate and use excess movement all over and my TE is fine in my lap. I sit leaning back, feet sometimes on my coffee table. I think my legs are slightly angled because I'm tall, so the TE is a little tilted?

    Let it be known that twelve year old males should not use a TE when playing Skullgirls.

    I put the balltop in my ass and press buttons with my sack.

    That's the main reason I haven't won a major, keep getting thrown out of venues during casuals

    I've found if you use a bat top instead, it's pretty inconspicuous to do this under a utili-kilt. Maybe try that unless you're going BRZ|.

    I'm trying to figure out who I want to focus on now in SF4

    I've narrowed it down to Cammy, Ryu, Rose, or Dudley (whom I can already play), or more drastically, Cody, Adon or Zangief.

    Probably Cammy.

    I wanted one of these so bad. But I had this TE collecting dust for a year and if I couldn't sell it, I'd at least try to Dual Mod it without destroying it. Now that that's succeeded, I removed the art and want to give it art, but I'm waiting for more hi-res Skullgirls captures to appear.

    If I don't make a Skullgirls stick, I would love a classy black and white look like that.

    With that said, are there ways to add felt to sticks out yet?

    The only gems that piss me off are the auto throw tech gems.

    Of course I could just pick a character who could jab - walk up - jab ad naseum.

    Adon is pretty damn good right now, and his game is so straightforward it is ridiculous

    could you not just buy a square of adhesive backed felt? That shit is pretty easy to find. Art supply stores often have it, and maybe hardware stores. Do a google search for it.

    You just don't get it. Sanwa needs to make it :D

    In all seriousness I'm getting used to using the TE in my lap rather than scarring my right foot and ankle sitting on tile floor, and if it becomes a problem I'll take a trip to Michael's and buy some Felt and glue.

    I saw kids playing BlazBlue in the local Valencia CC's food court. I was all "huh, what's an entertainment system doing here."

    BlazBlue is the only thing I can't play with a stick (I hit wrong buttons). I use a pad for BlazBlue.
