I think I may be done with online.

I only recently started attending tournaments. I've been to two. And yes, I've thought the same thing. Online timing is actually detrimental to my offline game. I dropping the simplest combos, literally the MMHS magic series.

Another specific example:

If I connect with a falling j.H with Tron, I'll confirm into air Bonne Strike H, land, s.M, Gustav Fire, j.MHS, which results in a ground bounce for further combo. When I play this offline, my j.M doesn't come out, and I get a whiffed j.H instead. This happened literally every time I tried the combo, both during casuals and tournament matches. But I land it online like every time.

I go into training mode and get it down, and I think I have it, but then I just can't get it. I dunno if it's "tourney nerves" or whatever, cause I really don't get that nervous.

I do occasionally play offline at home (I only have 1 person to play against), and when I do, I can get this combo. When I go to tourneys, the game feels faster. I dunno if its the lag-free monitors or what, but I've changed my tv to game mode and all that jazz, and it still doesn't feel as fast as those.

I've considered quitting online completely. The only reason I play online is because single player is boring, and I just love playing Marvel. I've heard rumblings of a weekly being started up in my city, though. So once that happens, I'm hoping to convert to 100% offline.


dude its the tv. I have to practice on my computer monitor before real tournaments so i'm used to it before I get there. even a 1/2hour is enough.


I don't think my TV has lag. Pretty sure it's close to lagless because I play on monitors at casuals and it doesn't seem to different. Maybe my tv is laggy? How would I know?

the only way I found out my tv was laggy was my friend came over and was like dude this tv is laggy lol. then I played on the comp monitor for a bit then went to the tv and noticed it. mine is game mode too with all visual enhancments turned off and its still a tiny bit laggy. just enough to make you miss a throw attempt on a monitor

There isn't really any arcades near my area (there's Monsters, but that's pretty far off), & many of my friends & family don't play fighting games, so I'm stuck only playing online.

Like you said on links. I feel like I pressa medium ,but nothing comes out. Timing is a little off and sometimes when I think I jump I stay on the ground. You can adjust after a good amount of days.


So it probably is online then. And yeah you and I have very similar team composition and you use the kind of combo I do with the Trish assist. Is that what you're talking about?


So yeah I think I just need to stick to offline but If I have no one to play with, what should I do? PRACTICE Constantly? That's boring :<


That's what I have to do. If you have people offline or a scene to play with any amount of regularity it's really not so bad. I only get real play time twice a month (2nd Saturday is casuals, 4th is locals) for a couple hours a pop, but it's immensely more gratifying than playing faceless online and unintentionally adding lag tactics to my game.

If you get really bored exploring your team, I suggest doing what I did and limiting your practice time so you don't burn out and get complacent. I usually only practice an hour or so a night anymore (more if I've got some new tech) and then settle into something like Borderlands 2. Your game really won't go downhill as long as your practice is on point and relevant.

This isn't about salt. This isn't about people using online tactics. I've come to terms with losing online. I don't mind it anymore.


But I was playing online ten times better then I play offline in my last tournament (in my eyes). That's unacceptable. I think a lot of it has to do with me being used to the hint of lag in my combos from online. That's why I randomly drop links like:

(Zero)

St.MH (Call Assist Task Arrows) Cr.M St.H

I will randomly just drop Cr.M because I guess I'm used to the online delay. I've been playing Online because I've started back at school and so has my friend. So my execution offline has been going downhill.

Playing perfectly today really opened my eyes about how I should be playing offline.

Does anyone think the online delay really messes up my execution offline like I perceive? Or am I just overreacting to a couple of off days?


The timing is very different. Say for stuff where you delay things on purpose OFFline to get more time for an OTG after an Air Combo .... online is completely different in that you don't delay anything and it works so if you do the online timing offline ... all the sudden you might have a dropped combo offline.

Also things that appear very safe online are not safe offline and might get you into bad habits.

I would LOVE to play this game online if it were at least as good as SF4s which isn't perfect ... but acceptable imo ... especially compared to the crap Netcode this game has.
