    It is also useful to practice hitconfirming. e.g if your combo starts with cr.LK, cr.MK, cr.HP with Beowulf, you want to only press the cr.HP when you hit the opponent, otherwise you will be punishable or have to cancel into a special which has its own problems. To practice this, set the dummy to block random first hit and then practice doing cr.LK, cr.MK and confirm into cr.HP if you hit and if not then stop.

    Alright cool. That's also definitely something I autopilot to when I get blocked. Lot more stuff in training mode to explore I didn't know about before so thanks for the heads up.

    Is there or is there not skill level based match making on quick match against other players?

    Short answer: No.

    If there are two people at the exact same time not finding each other, it will prioritize the person with a skill closer to your own.
    However, 99.999% of the time you'll be matched up with whatever player happens to press the Quick Match button at that time, so there's no skill based match making.

    When this game first launched, it had skill based match making.

    The game would say "Searching for a Tier {5 / 4 / 3 / 2 / 1} Opponent" and it would try and find someone in the same tier as you.
    This split the online player base into 5 sections, and led to many players sitting at the finding opponent screen waiting sometimes half an hour for a match if you were a good player.

    Good and new players (myself included when I was starting out) agreed that they would rather play a lopsided match (A good player playing a new player) than wait half an hour for a balanced one.
    Losing is the fastest way to improve anyway.

    If you find this frustrating, remember that you can open lobbies with two slots using the title "Casual Matches - Beginner" and wait for a newer player to join.
    If you think that the other person is way above you, and you kick them using the LK button while hovering over their name in the lobby as long as you are the host.

    You can check your opponents "time played" for Skullgirls on their Steam profile by pressing Shift + Tab > View Players (Bottom Left) > Recently Played > Top of the list will be your most recently played opponent.
    If it's below 50 or so, try and grind it out!
    If they have 1000 hours they probably shouldn't be in your lobby and it's safe to kick them if you are having a poor experience.

    Do you think it'd be a good idea to post here on these forums (not sure which subforum, maybe Beginner Forums) when I plan to host a Lobby for Beginners on West Coast? Or even just make it a scheduled weekly thing like every X-day at X-time and make a thread of it and bump it?

    That way, new or just bad PST players can know when to expect an active lobby to be on, rather than taking the chance and finding one on a whim (tho in my limited experience, they aren't too hard to find anyway).

    Are these forums active enough for that? I'd prefer here than reddit or the Steam forums (which btw, this is all Steam related). :PUN:

    Parasoul has got a ton of great air poking tools. Plus super jump j.mk [hold] will give you extra time in the air to plan out an attack and to position yourself to perfectly punish the opponent with a j.hp
