    So it was a pretty dominating day of performance on my side.

    Pudgy Bird beat me 3 straight rounds using my character, King.

    Next was a Lucky Chloe who kept using her infinite mid, lo, mid, lo, mid, high kick string. I could crush it pretty easily if she started it too soon, but if she started it close up my character couldn't do much besides keep blocking. There was apparently too much block recovery for King to do much. I could occasionally low parry out of it, but it wasn't consistent. I had the player pretty handily, so they would use that infinite loop to wear me down.

    Then I played against a Steve that beat me around 15-1 in fights. His speed, and ability to damage me on the ground left me with no answer. It didn't help that I kept dropping really simple juggles even when I finally got a launch. No idea how I couldn't land those when I had no issues in previous fights.

    Any advice on my problems with Steve and Chloe?

    Also I did online stuff and won 2/4 rounds with Lili. I'm super awkward about online stuff though because I feel I don't know proper online etiquette

    Really enjoyed those fights with you yesterday, guys!

    Steve is so hard to play against. I've tried to use him before (but never practised) and all I can seem to do is dodge and weave. Maybe the only way to really learn how to defend against him is to learn his moves so you kinda know what attacks to block against and where you can find and opening to attack.

    As for online etiquette, I don't think there really is any apart from 1) Don't ever disconnect during a match and 2) don't spam the same move over and over and over and over and KO!

    Thanks PB. You're definitely starting to get results from the practice. Good Games!

    I went and watched some people playing at all levels, and it looks like Steve might just be a rough match for King. His speed is smothering. He'd sometimes beat me to the punch even when I tried my fastest interruption moves. When a simple 1,2 gets beat out consistently, I know I'm in trouble. I could catch him out with mix ups, but not very often. Lots of his power moves were strong enough I couldn't armor through them, and most of what I tried to catch him off guard just wasn't fast enough. He'd whiff, and have time to recover and block before my counter-hit. Rooooough. The Steve situation is just me needing to learn the match and git gud.

    That last part is what I was struggling with. I'm not even saying they can't do it, or it's bad etiquette. I should be able to counter it, but they had me dead to rights. She can, of course, throw a crushing overhead into it as well to mix things up even more. My poor King was struggling. Any thoughts on how to get around Chloe's low-mi infinite kick thing?

    Cheers!

    And yeah, some characters are just at a disadvantage from the off. Maybe try more side / back stepping?

    I'm free if you want another match up!

    Oh, I didn't play as her I swear down you're a pro with King now! I haven't tried out the tournament's yet but I reckon you'd fair pretty well playing as him!

    Meanwhile I'm just here getting outfits.

    I'm doing okay with Lili. Sharkys King just destroys me when I use her though. Its about even with other characters but Lili? Nah

    I've been switching between this and Injustice 2 (because outfits) and it gets pretty confusing

    I think that when you buy something with fight money it should be unlocked for all characters, rather than having to buy them individually for every character. Not that I'm really fussed about the customisation anyway, but still.

    Actually, I might have you do that on purpose sometime. I need to learn how to get around it, so maybe I can use you as a sparring partner.

    I can teach you how to get out of King's stuff if you want. (FML! )

    Sounds good to me! Because I mostly play Tekken 7 on my Vita there's no way to cycle through the move list in practise mode, which is annoying. I've tried pressing the centre of the screen which is supposed to be the DS4 pad, but it doesn't recognise it as such which is frustrating. I suppose I could still bring up the moves list from the menu but it's much easier when the commands are displayed on screen. I was using Nina online earlier without learning her moves and I was doing pretty well until I came across someone else using her and they tore me to pieces. I MUST LEARN HER!

    Nina is actually a really fun character. I used to use her a lot in Tekken 3,l before I moved over to Julia in Tekken 4 on up.

    I enjoy her good amount of different moves that hit all over the place, she has effective counters, and she has a reasonably robust series of chain-throws for King players like me.

    I'll try to play you some more this weekend, but I don't know how much longer I'll be competition for you.

    I'm jumping in now to learn her. I keep getting demoted with Shanheen back down to 1st Dan, so I need to find someone else!

    EDIT: OK, so I've got some moves down! However I can't get her more complex ones down, like where you have to get in to a grapple and then input more button combos once you're in it to complete it. That's tough >.< but I have learnt that using the left stick instead of the d-pad (which I usually use) can make things a lot smoother! Gonna hit online soon to test her.

    Have you tried Katarina yet? She's easy to take up. I got up to Vanguard rank but my connection kept cutting me out of ranked matches so I had to stop as they count as losses. Which was crap as I was leading in each.

    Yeah, I've tried her, and she's a good damage dealer - almost too good that I find her pretty boring to play as. Literally press XXXXX or OOOOO to win. Haven't took her to practise mode yet, though - maybe if I learn some of her other moves properly she'll more fun to use.
