    I've noticed these two styles of playing...some people try to play and get creative on someone, trying all the moves in differen't situations, and some others play to win - using safe moves and being very calculated...both are both valid forms of playing - which are you? I would say that I fall between both - I like to win, but dislike having to sacrific style.

    Style...It's abt Style

    I'm pretty DAMN sure that I'm not those playing to win players.

    Then again, I dun play to look good as well...
    After all, looking good only goes as far as 'looking good'

    What I eventually end up doing all the time though, is creating my own style.

    By the way, my style is in such a way, people find it GREAT FUN to play with me. Whether it be me winning or losing, I've never had a challenger that said any bad things abt my style.

    Well it depends....there are many variables,factors(a scientist would say)......for exemple the opponent you fight if it's an oponnent who is very good at the game I wan't to show him that I can pull of some nice tricks on the oposite i have to be quite effective.. that doesn't allow me to use for exemple some moves that look very nice but have to much frames antil they connect ...(For exemple Akiras P+G from behind)....sometimes people dicide to play very strong and straight forward at the begining and when they have got ~50% more energy as their opponnent they start pulling off some tricks more frequently. But finally i think that a good player sooner or later is forced to put a very variable fighting style on display because the straight forward fighting styles(always the same moves out of a narrow repertoire) are quite uneffective against good players...maybe this variable fighting styles often posess such unaxpected elements(pulling of new tricks).......You should ask people who often fight against good players ......certainly you will find a lot of diffrent behaviours........
