MBAACC- suitable for newbies?
« on: February 09, 2017, 04:41:27 AM »
hOI!
So, recently I got interested in this game (mostly because it's set in Type-Moon and man, Tsukihime's so cool etc.) and welp, it's the first fighting game that got so much of my attention so I didn't quit after realizing that the easiest CPU totally destroys me without blinking. In other words, I wanna get good at it.  When I tried searching how to get good at fighting games, I found many different opinions. Some recommended that I should get some experience with SF IV,  some others just said 'find a game that you think totally kicks ass and play it  for hours until you get good', and for me MB is just the one. But that's not the point.  The question is, can I play it and get good at it with completely zero experience at fighting games?
Thanks for every answer!  :D

The answer is yes, you can. It is what I did, back in 2008 when I started playing fighting games. Melty was my 1st, and pretty much the only one I've stuck with. I still play it to this day.

Things that helped me learn:

I played offline with someone I knew, who also happened to be very good. He kicked my ass for like a year straight before I could take matches off him.

I went into training mode for at least an hour each day to practice things like combos, knockdown set-ups and mix-ups. Even just motions that I found difficult.

I played against other people often, mostly who were as good, or better than me. I asked questions, and went into play sessions with a goal in mind. For example, when I was learning to play, the 1st thing I wanted to do was defend well, and so I'd try to find situations where I could shield things.

I watched match footage of good players playing my character against many other characters.

I learned terminology, and combo notation.

I picked one character that I liked, and played with that one until I got comfortable in matches with things like combos, confirming random hits into combos, air counter hit combos, movement, playing the neutral game and spacing pokes, ect. Now I can pretty much play any character I feel like, with a bit of practice.

I made the effort to play the game, and to get others to play the game. So I would drive to others houses to play. I would buy food. I would bring a set-up to play on. Things like that.

I did not care about losing, and you will lose often. I had fun learning the game, and implementing the things I practiced, or new things I'd learned.

Now, I doubt that you have someone else in your area to play offline with. There are still a bunch of people that play online using the caster and discord. It is prolly the best netplay experience you'll find with any 'modern' fighting game.

Hope that helps. :)

Hey off topic but mind if I ask who I can talk to about getting unbanned from the discord, recently hopped back into this game and found myself banned from the discord, I was a member once but I guess I got banned because I never said a single word. Pls help.
