Play people who are better than you. You're only as good as the people you practice with. I sucked at Melee and Halo 2 and was pretty decent at MvC2 when I got to college in '05. The people I played in the dorms were so damn good, I ended up leveling up to the point when I went back to visit my hometown and played those games with my friends and cousins, I looked like a god compared to them.
I don’t think I’ve ever been clickbaited so hard before. Starting a game later – while it does put you at a bigger disadvantage – doesn’t necessarily seal your fate. Not to mention, even though it is true to a certain degree, did you really need to spend 8 minutes saying this same thing over and over again?
I don’t wanna sound like some sort of Karen, but a lot of it just felt like filler.
So play it when it comes out?
Not really helpful to the question bud. But its what works for you I suppose. So you do you.
Picked up Mk11 within it's first week and I discovered alot on how you play , how it's build , what character specialize in what and today I'm a player that reached demi God 7 times ! All because I picked the game within it's first week.
This is why it was a mistake for them to have Demon's Souls Remake as a launch title when there is no systems out there to play them on.
I can't understand any of the fighting game jargon. And that really trips me up. When people start bringing up frame animations and +1PP etc. How did any of yall learn this stuff? The games don't seem to explain any of this. At least not any fighting games I have played. HALP.
Am I the only one who spams all the punch and kick buttons randomly?
I'm amazing at all fight games. I play the same in all of them. I love to go after weak point. Throws, sweep the leg, over head when you block low, anti air punch or kick when you jump, and most important having patience and making my opponent miss so I can take advantage.
I’m wanting to get into street fighter v which has been out for a while so I’m thoroughly daunted
Yeah I totally dropped USF4 after finally taking it seriously, because SF5 came out shortly after.
I’m way behind but I want to get better at smash so I’m trying to get good at all fighting games
Fighting games don’t have to be fun there is something special about fighting and winning and knowing how you’ve grown it’s like an anime
So, fuck all other old fighting games then? Well that fucking sucks.
who's ready for guilty gear strive?
not me watching this because i keep getting mopped in gg rev 2 sfv dbfz and bbcf , wish i had someone to really play with everyday n practice with, and i can’t decide which pad feels better between ps4 and 5
I would rather delete those games than rage in death…
This is a very old video, so I doubt people will see this comment. But let me put this out there: Max’s claim that getting better involves obtaining the game upon release is only true to an extent.
If you want to stay on pace with various players around the world, then by all means get each game upon its release. The problem, however, is that you have to have already come to the conclusion that you want to learn the game before it even comes out. I never knew that I wanted to seriously learn fighting games until 2016, and while players were way ahead of me, I never had more fun learning.
It is never too late to learn fighting games. You don’t have to get the game upon release in order to get the full experience. In fact, playing the game past its release will actually give you the advantage of having multiple resources to learn from.
Interest, the will of wanting to get better at something all while having fun and acknowledging you will lose a lot in the process is key.
I’m training to beat my older cousin at MK11, wish me luck
Too little tips and too much feelings/reaction to fighting games
I bought guilty gear accent core + r as my first fighting game, man I feel like uninstalling this game and giving up.
Men I love em but suck so bad that I feel so ashamed to play anymore. Still thanks for de advice.
Just bought KOF 14 and wanted to train already a bit for 15 … some guys have 23 years of experience of me ahead … well … fck …
U didn’t really ain’t saying anything bro
Imagine if professional fighters acted like this, "Yo new Martial Art just dropped, we gotta practice it now before other people get a headstart."
I will still play fighting games but I'm only good at smash bros ultimate all the other ones well. I can list them. Street fighter V, DOA 5 and 6, Arcana Hearts love max, Guilty gear X Rev, DragonBall Z fighters Tekken 6, Guilty gear accel xx, Skullgirls Encore because I can't even beat the tutorial. Under nite in birth, Injustice 2. This sucks.. Oh and King of fighters 14. Blaze blue central fiction.
Im 7 years late but thanks for the video 💪
Yeah, it's cool being there on day one. However, in most things in life it's impossible. If you move to a new country and need to learn the language, you're not going to understand a single thing anyone says to you for a while, until your ear and brain adjust to the new input. Everyone around you is an expert and you don't even have working buttons on your controller. But it's cool, you can learn from speaking to patient native speakers. The same way, you can definitely turn up late to a fighting game and catch up. After a while you'll be making new discoveries for yourself and there will still be that rewarding feeling. And if not? Pick another character and lab it all over again.
Make sure that you pick up the game as soon as it drops so you can keep up with all the patches, balance changes, new characters and bug fixes.
Also make sure you pay release day price for every new fighting game and full price on every super-ultra-arcade edition they re-package the game in and re-release for the same amount as the original.
me: playing fighting game made several years ago and am struggling
max: lol just play it the first day of release
me: oh ok so im just fucked then??
Me moonwalking into tekken 7 and street fighter 4 realizing I fucked up
I kind of hate this way of thinking. The idea that if you don't get into a game when it first releases, you essentially missed the boat and are going to get crushed every time forever. Maybe at the highest competitive level, that timing matters but it hasn't necessarily been my experience playing on a more casual level. The biggest thing when it comes to fighting games (and all games, really) is having an analytical mind. If you're getting smashed, try to figure out what you're opponent is doing to get you. Are they constantly jumping in at you? Practice your anti-airs. Are they blocking or dodging all your moves? Alter your timing and maybe mix in some grabs. Are they spamming a particular move that seems invincible? Go into training mode and practice against that specific move until you figure out its weakness. Maybe the move only hits high and you can duck underneath it or maybe it has a slow startup and you can throw in a quick jab to interrupt it. And, unless you're trying to get into an old game like 3rd Strike that people have been playing for decades, you may find it won't be long until you're able to steal a round here or there and then get some wins. Don't think you can't get into a game just because it's been out for a while.
As soon as I think I'm good offline, I go online and get neutralized.
I'm excited to play mortal Kombat x in the future
Preorder and devote your life.
Hey Im just getting into Fighting games and wanna know if this is still relevant video? i love Max so wanna see his take on this
Video aged like fine wine
Here is a tip, play single player, multiplayer isn't for "having fun".
Im old now but when I was a teenager me and my friends would just play arcade SF2 single player and despised it when someone would pop in a coin for a challenge. So much so that all we ever did was play the single player, so never really developed good skills playing competitively against human opponents. These days I try online against people and the skillset Ive built up in single player matches never really translates and naturally I lose a lot. I tend to reassure myself by trying to at least give as good as I get and make a good fight, if its a 2 rounds against 2 loss then I consider it a kind of half win. Some great wisdom in this video. Great stuff.
I gotta say this video is kinda proven wrong (when it comes to you need to play a fighting game when it comes out) when you have games like melee in where it's been out for years and new people can through just practice and determination make it to the top eventually
Biggest issue here: I hate to buy games when they just came out since prices are highest and bugs are the biggest and most.
If the devs put a decent matchmaking in the game, you got no issue with fighting too weak or strong players.
Let go of the ego learn, play, and practice. Don’t compare yourself. Most importantly if you really want it DON’T QUIT. Yep, you may lose a lot but if you continue working you’ll come out on the other side.
shoot this aged like fine wine
Started playing Xrd after discovering that there is quite an active discord from where I'm from.
Pretty cool considering there are new players like me so I can at least win some times and not get double perfect by a pro. Also the game's netcode is suprisingly good however, obviously you're going to need to hop onto discord and be lucky enough to have people that play it near you.
"I'm really interested in Alpha 3, but I keep getting washed, how do I get good?"
"Be there when it launches dood, first two months are the best. In fact, play it before release if you can"
im months late to melty blood and years late to jojo all star battle, so am i just supposed to drop those then
I don't usually leave mean comments on videos, but this was particularly useless. Someone looking up how to play a fighting game won't gain any benfit from someone saying, "Play the game as soon as it comes out." These are people, such as myself, looking for guidance with basic literacy in the genre. This video and its comments seem to be some masturbatory biography whose sole purpose is to indicate to the world that you people are the ones that "got good." Generally, when gvining advice, it's productive to thinnk about the perspective of your audience, someone who doesn't know something, by telling them something they could learn instead of telling them that they too could be as cool and learned as you, that is if they had only started playing before you. I don't think you even realize just how discouraging this message is. For people struggling that just want to have fun, you could more or less tell them to not even bother and be just as informative.
