    I'll be updating this over time to show my progress and try documenting it from this date forward. For context's sake, I've been training with Skullgirls since Janurary on PC with a DualShock 4, and my Vita (also with a DS4 sometimes). I've gotten used to hard CPUs, and have tried to do attacks in training mode and perfect combos. I can't do showstopper/blockbuster finishers reliably though.

    As of 2/5/18 - i had my first match against an IRL friend. He used a fightstick. I was kinda proud of how I was able to win, I feel like I'm better at blocking than before but I tend to get caught up in making combos first, blocking second. I can defend against mixups wellish though. Earlier I had trouble beating Double on Hard CPU, I always got caught in a huge attack the second I was knocked into the air, and I couldn't block it.

    2/7/18 = Tried doing some Filia training and going into some Hard CPU training. I don't think I was as good as I normally am, but I also haven't been playing as often, so that's probably why. I also have video of my playing. It was the first time I played against a Big Band and it really didn't go well.

    I also tried to re-learn some moves but I can't reliably do like Gregor Samson, Airball, etc. I forget I even have the flashy moves honestly, feel kinda bad I can't do them.

    I've never recorded video before, so some settings are iffy and I know the second video had some freezing in game, I normally have 60FPS when not recording.

    I haven't posted here in a long while, but I want to say that I feel more confident in playing the game. I can go toe to toe with Nightmare level CPU most of the time.

    I'm still only using Filia and Fuukua, I tend to use the Gregor Samson and the Platonic Drillationship specials the most. I feel like I can really get something with this duo. Sadly I can't really get better with anyone else atm. I will also admit that the Feneir Dive is really hard for me to do still, keep getting it messed up with updo. And the Lvl 3 attack for Filia, I can almost never do.

    Peacocks are always the most annoying for me to get to fight against. I'm starting to see that if I can use more of Fuukua's energy blasts, I can keep them at bay, but still. Her special always gets me destroyed.

    I don't know what other characters I can try, honestly. Maybe I should try someone else because I'm too comfortable at this point.

    At the same time, I know I CAN get better because I haven't been able to complete the trials yet. Like Filia's first, linking the 5 other attacks into a hairball and Feneir Dive is always the hardest part, but I can do the 5 other attacks no problem. I also feel like I need to get better at mixing up combos, I tend to have a set pattern that works well, but I can get predictable.
