i'd very much like to improve my skullgirls abilities over this summer. i suppose a bit of note-keeping would help the amelioration. being as this is the first week that i am free from any school things, i'll label this the week one post. general notes: think more independently. i tend to confine myself into specific options without making fluid decisions by ear. i'm very susceptible to resets because i don't calculate every option. relearn optimal combos for (most) every character. its been a while since my preferred combos were useful. specifically more mine combos with rfortune, gun combos with double, and stance combos with squigly. messing up pbgc 33% of the time. that's far too much. learning defense on keyboard. that's self-explanatory, panicking when using a side character. matchup experience goes out of the window when i'm too worried about my own character and not the opponent's. _____________________________________ robo fortune notes: restrain random s.hk . proactively using overheads works best in slower games. not so much in sg. use the nyandroids more. they're usually an afterthought and would do well to aid my neutral game. neglecting level 3 and atomic collider super. i never use either. a modicum of change would help. ____________________________________ double notes: less panic. guns are never the answer. create better resets. all current resets, yet tried and true, could use some vitality. don't pick the ugly colors beforehand. have some decency for the opponent's eyes. ____________________________________ parasoul notes: f.hp > napalm shot is not consistent. this week should focus on tightening this. find a fun use of midscreen s.hk that isn't big band assist related. big band is not fun. ____________________________________ painwheel notes: learn fly combos on keyboard. sigh. fiddle with a lame painwheel. take to the skies and enjoy the scenery whilst robo fortune fires beams from below. use nails in situations that are not incoming. ____________________________________ beowulf notes: learn chairless combos. explore the best accompanying assist beowulf has so that he doesn't get coerced into the point character every time. ____________________________________ steam is ibelievein720. you too can believe. my connection isn't very good, admittedly, but i still try. apologies if my internet has caused anyone to foam out of the mouth.
