The Joys of Playing SSFIV Online by majormario The Joys of Playing SSFIV Online by majormario
Other than playing as Dan, there are no joys to be found.

Matches online are some of the worst I've ever seen. So, you pick your favorite character and want to have some fun? Too bad. You're fighting a combo crazy Yun/Yang. Trying to get some experience under your belt? Here, have an onslaught of Ryu and Ken players. Learn how to not suck so much. What's that? You say you're good at games? I agree! Your face is great at hitting my fist.

I still enjoy Street Fighter, but playing online should be fun, not a slaughterfest. This is one reason why I enjoy team-based games like Team Fortress 2. Sure, you may not know what to do, but other players do. Pick Medic or Engineer and observe what your teammates are doing, then go out and do it yourself.

I'm still so happy you got the Capcom models to work!
Good Job.

I wish I had more models, though. Rose, Gouken, Dan, Ken, and Adon would make me happy. And skimpy Chris Redfield for mindless amusement.

I find this funny yet true.

When I played it was all shotos. I'm glad I went to other games.

I know that feel.  It's bad enough losing but when you receive gloating and insulting messages afterward, it's even worse.  Not to mention that if you do pull off a near victory, there's always a chance of a rage quitter.

Like your picture.  Hope Juri breaks Ryu right now.

Yeah... Online competitive games are... Not very fun.

Thanks mate.

Fighters are not really focused on the "Casual" genre, especially not Street fighter. The game is based more on how you think than how you play e.g: Looking for patterns in your opponents play, their reactions when they panic and what works for them and shut it down.

Nothing comes easy, much like writing. It takes lots of practice till you can write a piece you really enjoy and it's the same with Street fighter, if you don't learn how to play you won't be able to enjoy it.

I recommend going in the training room and having some personal one to one with your character, almost like a date. Learn as much as you can about them so you can adapt to situations you're opponents put you in. 

If you want to play for fun there are two options:
1) Play with friends.
2) Dedicate yourself to learning some advantages. (Frame traps, Punish combos, safe jumping ect)

PS: If you ever want some tips on how to approach your opponent physiologically, feel free to ask.
