    Hi, my name is Skulldemon (I know that my tag is edgy af but half of my name comes from Skullgirls), but you can call me Skull or SD. I've been mainly a SSB player (mostly playing SSB4 and Project M) but I've started playing Skullgirls. The game is fun :)

    Hi, I'm MuneRoons. I've owned Skullgirls since a few months after launch, but I never really fell in love with it until recently. Currently a college student studying languages and medicine. I have been trying to get better at the game, luckily I finally have a nice little group to play with but I've also been enjoying online play. I wouldn't say I was extremely into any fighting game previously, but I did play a lot of Tekken, BlazBlue, Street Fighter, and Smash Bros. I mainly fell in love with the game for the character design and charm of it all, plus the hand-drawn work really made me feel for the passion of the game.

    Hello hello, I'm a mechanical keyboard fanatic who enjoys dabbling in digital art, and I've recently picked up a newfound interest in fighting games-- specifically Skullgirls. Fukua's my girl, and I've yet to venture outside of my safety bubble and find someone else I like as much. :^]

    Hello, I am a person who has always been in love with fighting games, but was never good enough to play them and even got scared of playing them, I tehn decided to leave my fear and bought skullgirls on steam. Sadly, I can't seem to find a character I am able to play and like to play, any help?

    do you have the dlc?

    it's okay if you don't. you can try em out in the endless beta.

    but really you should give yourself some time to figure things out and to take a look at all of the characters

    Aaaaaahhh! I totally get you!
    Skullgirls was my first fighting game after a lifetime of being afraid of them~
    The only tip I can really give is this:
    Find a character you REALLY like, character-wise or appearance wise. Let's forget about liking to play for a moment, and not really being able to play a character at first is normal.
    Now, you just grind it out with this character.
    Spend hours upon hours playing training, bots, and other people.
    Your goal here is twofold; to develop general game-sense, and to learn your playstyle.
    What I mean by "learn your playstyle" is exactly what it says: you can only ever know what you want in a character by playing and noticing parts that you hate and parts that you don't.

    tl;dr
    Keep playing until you discover what you like and what you don't like playstyle-wise.
    This will steer you towards who you want to main.
    Not really something we can help with unless you already specifically know your preferences and what you're looking for.
    Sorry~!

    Hello fellow players, I'm AuraMaster. I just purchased Skullgirls because it seemed like a fighting game I could truly enjoy and I was impressed by how much work and support went into it. I have been plying since the beginning of June 2017, so I'm a rookie that's a bit late to the party, but I hope to get better with the help of others here online. If you have any advice, please let me in on it, as it would be fun to land sweet combos and maybe compete in tournaments for fun (and cash :p).
    I play on PS4 (going by the name AuraMastr11037) and I "main" the characters Squigly and Fukua right now, but that may change.

    Have a great day!

    You're never too late! c:

    Some general things I wish were written down for beginner me:
    > Combos are not the most important thing.
    Like, woah; I saw all the flashy combos and thought that that was what it meant to be a good player. But no.
    I think I spent about 50 hours floundering around trying to do the cool stuff before giving up.
    And when I gave up I just went straight to quickmatch with, no shit, this combo:
    st.lk st.mk(2) j.lk j.mk(2)
    And I grinded out quickmatch for 100 hours with just that combo.
    Obviously, if you can learn a decent BnB early on that's good. What I'm saying is: don't be preoccupied with combos when you still haven't properly learned neutral and haven't felt the game out yet.

    > Pressure is easy.
    So, after finally stepping up my combo game my next priority was pressure.
    And boy, was I intimidated. It took me, like, another 100 hours just to finally understand how to do it and that it wasn't the overly complicated beast I thought it was (unless you get into the deep end).
    For pressure it's all about mixing up your approach. Your options are attacks that hit low, attacks that hit high, grabs, attacks that come out quick, and attacks that come out late or that you delay.
    That seems like a lot, and it definitely was for beginner me, but effective pressure begins with the simplest and purest approach:
    The high/low mix-up.
    Which is basically what it says, you either hit with a high or a low. And even then, you're gonna be using the simplest form of the simplest pressure thingy: Jump attack / Empty jump. Either you hit high with a jump attack or you land then hit with a low.
    tbh, this is really all you need as long as you're able to stay unpredictable. And the best part? It's so easy to expand on it.
    high/low becomes high/low/standing high high/low/standing high/grab then becomes high/low/standing high/grab/wait then becomes high/low/standing high/grab/wait/empty jump into instant overhead which then becomes... you get the point.

    You don't need combos because you play PeaBand. :V

    The first full-undizzy combo I learned got me to the point where I could press buttons reasonably fast. I'd say it helps stop mashing... but then, I'm still terrible at scrambles, so what do I know.

    Notta gang up on you dood but @Fumako got a point. Playing Pea/Band is harder than it looks.
    Pea would pretty much be on point all the time and make sure she doesn't mess up a single
    string in order for the wall to have the proper foundation and to make sure the both of them don't in up getting trapped in a combo together

    And BB's assist calls in that team are especially risky and vital at the same time. If you call him too much the odd of him dying on assist punish skyrocket but if you don't call him enough the Pea/Band main dynamic of "The wall to end all walls" Comes apart since the bricks aren't being put there but BB ya know? (Tl;dr: You would have to figure out that perfect middle ground of assist calls where the bombs Pea would throw would stop the other player from beating the heck outta BB since he's a Reeeeeeeally big guy and anything with start a combo with that dood.)

    Though I gotta say, The peeps that have figured out the massive game of keep away are the peeps I dread the most to run into in quick matches - -)
    Like this guy (open)
    I Just Can't Get In! > <)


    Again, Not saying this to be a jerk face. Just wanted to say =)

    Heyo! This technically isn't an introduction since I joined back in 2013 (but mostly lurked), but had a long time away from the forums. Indivisble has really kicked me into high gear with Lab Zero again (and I'm still playing Skullgirls!) so I wanted to write this up to get me formally back into all this. See you around!

    ok, wow, so I reread my statement and it turns out I actually forgot to put in the thing I was trying to convey, which was:
    Don't get so hung up on combos when learning neutral is so much more valuable for the early stages. or something

    Show Spoiler

    And I was a solo Band / FortuneBand while I was using that weak-ass 2 button combo, so it's not like I didn't need combos because I was zoning.
    Humu >:c


    and to Salty and Sinasi...
    Whoops, sorry you had to see this :P
    Welcome and Welcome back!
