things that hold you back when training VF. (in my oppinion) 1) mentality. using words like nitaku. yomi. okimeze. we should all know that they mean.. 2 choice, .. reading and wake up game. we're a western community, we should be learning the game in our own language.. using our own terms. one of the reasons why the tekken community is 10x stronger than the vf is because their mentality of the west is alot stronger. imho, forget idolizing japan, finding your favourate players, and forget paying lots of money to fly them over. build your own scene with the game from scratch. create the game yourself. 2) moral vs immoral play. we arent robots. immoral play comes from learning the definition of morals. if you see chibita doing strange things, it's probably because he knows the game system already, and is intimidating when he does play by the system whenever he feels like it. key = learn the rules. break the rules. become shapeless. not clueless. 3) asking the forum about everything. sorry about this one. there is some great information here that people post. but there is one thing to remember.. the information is given in the moveslist, if you know your character well, you will find out everything you need to know just by experimenting. im not talking about reading posts about discoveries, i mean asking things like "why doesnt this combo work". with a basic mess around with the tech roll function in training mode, all becomes clear instantly. that mentality should be the key to building your whole game. 4) over-analysing. less thinking, more feeling keeps the flow. if you concerntraite on the amazing technical input you are about to do, you will miss the retaliation that comes next. umm.. thats what i was thinking about on my way home today, thats all. thanks for reading.
