    @credeiki it's really not that hard to be decent at fighting games. The execution aspect is tough but it doesn't take years and years or anything. People who get into a local scene go from "how do I do a hadoken" to semifinal placements within a year sometimes.

    They're not significantly more difficult than any other competitive real-time game.

    What if you did not grow up at a console and struggle a little bit with controllers instead of kbam?
    What if you are someone who has practiced a different game assiduously for 5 years and are still terrible at it???

    (...I lost 3 games of LoL last night just as I’m trying so hard to push to plat and it’s making me so sad)

    LoL is different because it's a team game. It's harder to improve, it's harder to be consistent because your performance depends on others, and it's easy to get rolled by circumstance (stacked enemy teams, one person drops or afks, etc), IMO

    also you're obviously not "bad," just because you're not in platinum

    I grew up using controllers, but I never used fight sticks and hated them. Then my buddy who was really into Street Fighter convinced me to make the switch to a stick, and I adapted to it over a few months before exceeding my previous ability with a controller. It's just about consistent practice rather than skills embedded from childhood, genuinely.

    If you get in a lobby with someone better than you in a fighting game, and just play ten matches, you'll leave having noticeably improved. It's great.

    I once played almost a hundred matches in a row with Bizazedo from SE++, just grinding mirror matches, and I think it was like 90 to 6 by the end. He just crushed me. But the next day I annihilated everyone I met in ranked and it was wonderful.

    you can play fighting games on KBAM too. I mean the hitbox is basically KBAM but designed for fighting games (larger buttons, better layout than the default most games have)

    did the old death and taxes type cards rotate out or did they make that archetype better for standard

    you could build a deck in Standard with some similarities to Death & Taxes, but there's nothing in the new set like Thalia or Sanctum Prelate. Death and taxes hasn't really had a presence in standard for a little while.

    But there's a few things in the new set that fit a black/white tempo shell, like

    I am excited at the prospect of a new, simpler Guilty Gear. The fact that it looks like a 3d anime with a budget bankrolled by Jeff Bezos doesn't hurt either.

    I could try SF5 again but...
    sam sho is good but the online sucks but my brother bought it so maybe I should actually play it again
    don't let SFV hurt you again even though everyone seems pretty happy with the latest 3 characters

    I saw some high level Sagat matches and they looked so fuckin boring it put me off one of my fave characters :(

    I do think fighting games have that aspect that shooters often do, where someone can pick them up quickly but it’s usually because you have a lifetime of experience playing that style of game.

    It’s hard to realize how much of an effect that has on how well you play a game. I was playing chicken horse with my friend’s girlfriend and she had just never really played any platformers in her life (not even Mario) and I was really surprised how difficult it was for her and how much I took skill in that kind of game for granted.

    the only SFV I've played in like a year has been Sagat mirror matches against a bro and that matchup is actually fun because you can whiff punish and fireballs matter. and then you play against anyone else and you want to eat the controller

    A smart person would not play more games of ranked LoL tonight after being mentally exhausted from full day of meetings and physically exhausted from the climbing gym and tilted from losing yesterday

    ...someone log on tonight and force me to play non-ranked so I don’t lose more...

    Play the new magic set instead

    This is a sensible financial decision

    I’ve never gotten into magic cards. I can absolutely see the appeal but/and I know if I played I would need to be obsessive about it, so I’ve refrained.

    You don't need to be obsessive, it's free and you can just dabble, I mean I've only spent...

    Yeah, I see this with all kinds of games. Just little things like parsing salience cues, understanding the difference between an enemy and an NPC at a glance, etc are learned skills

    I guess... Guile has easier poke, anti air and zoning than Sagat. I guess its just that watching Nuckledu pro zone people out becomes so damn boring heh.

    I was an arcade kid, so I always liked fighting sticks

    but I really don't want to spend $200 on a controller that has no wireless mode for a genre of game that comprises maybe 10% of my total gaming time

    she has a weird input for her upkick which you use in her combos (Four Tigers Sword (Reverse) - 623[K]~1/4/7 ) but I don't think she's technical outside of that. You put the ball on top of people and then make them block it and go high or low.
