Input question.

The necessity to input special cancels early seems inconsistent. Seems some strings can be delayed to allow for later cancellations?

How are you meant to hit confirm when specials need to be entered early, or are you meant to just throw it out?
It really depends on your display, like if you have a great gaming monitor you can perform hitconfirms. What I stated was just to show people how the NRS input system CAN work. I love these types of questions by the way, so feel free to keep asking.
 
This is greatly appreciated, thank you. I am also new to these forums but I am looking for people to play with on ps4. Warning, I am a casual and still learning the game. But I am open to meeting new people who are interested in playing sets.

Ok folks. Today is the day I return. I have just obtained I2, I will give it a shot. Where do I start ?

Already did the "first tutorial" in the game but I guess thats nothing.

Took a spin, found a character I Am interested in.

Go to your character forum and look at the discussions there, that is if you're lucky enough that your character's community won't be in discord.
 
First post on here. I picked up the game recently and I'm looking to get into playing online with other beginners like myself (beginner to fighting games in general to be honest). Are there any discord communities or guilds that cater more to this so I can try fighting similar competition?

I figured this would be the best place to ask.

Well first you should ideally go through the 'noob's passage' section and post your introduction thread there.

That's what I did when I joined.

I believe the game automatically places you (mostly) against people around your skill level. You will get some outliers, but on average it tries to match you with players of similar skill after you've played a few games.

You can also ask around here -- might be good to make a thread for new player experience.

Also, it can help to play a good player with a microphone over Skype/Discord/PSN and just ask them to take it easy on you and explain things.

But above all, you are going to get the most value out of these 4 things:
1) Going into practice mode, figuring out how your character works (and a bit of how other characters work)

2) Watching good players play. This is super important. Nowdays it's easier than ever, as there's tons of footage of tournanents (both online weekly and offline) as well as good casual sets. You will learn more from this than reading written advice.

3) Just jumping into Ranked and getting the crap beat out of you, then figuring out how people did it

4) Asking tons of questions. Some people make threads just to get their questions answered.

Perhaps we can close this thread for discussion? I think of it more as a thread for newcomers to read through rather than for posting.

It's up to you -- but the thread is stickied, so there's probably not much harm in letting people post in it.

Sometimes it's helpful for people to read advice to others as well.

I'll clean out the drug-talk now, though. I don't know what that guy was on.

Yeah, that's kind of why I wanted the thread closed haha.
