How they didn't have an option to filter these guys out is beyond me. Wtf Capcom

I don't even play online anymore... This game is a scam sadly. Crappy Online management coupled with the lack of good controller solution has soured me.

Now I'm looking forward for the SNES classic sf2 turbo to scratch my sf2 itch.

It's nice to see the only missing character from this version of SFII back. Shin Akuma was in Turbo Revival and was a glaring omission in Hyper and HD Remix.

As if the game wasnt broken already now they added a character with two air fireballs.

Edit: Ah, local play only.

Violent Ken/Evil Ryu/Akuma have kinda taken a little of my enthusiasm away for playing online...i guess i just need to GIT GUD but i hate facing the same guys over and over with normies.

I find Violent Ken to be the only true unfair character. His dash is a 50/50 situation at best and his damage output isn't downscaled enough from E.Ryu and Gouki.

That and the attitude of the players playing him really take away from the online experience: I took a single match from the highest ranked V.Ken worldwide the last time I played and he denied me a rematch when the game picked us up again a few minutes later. Guess there were too much virtual useless ranking points in the balance...

So is it easy to find online matches? I sort of want to jump in to play some retro street Fighter online.

Can't comment on that since I haven't been playing for a few weeks but in the first month there were plenty of people playing. I'll come back to it once I'll have my Hori Stick in a few days.

So is it confirmed that Shin Akuma was already available at launch (we just didn't know the code) and it hasn't anything to do with the recent patch?
Still no info about what that patches does?

Pro controller works just fine. Won several matches this morning with guile, Chun, Ryu, and balrog.

Idk why people complain about it. It's very responsive and feels good.

Any controller that lets me do both guile super and balrog super without issue is a good one.

I have been playing this game so much more now that I have the 8bitdo NES30 Pro controlller. I love the d-pad on it.

It's actually
Street Fighter II': Champion Edition
Street Fighter II' Turbo: Hyper Fighting

I really want to know the significance of the apostrophe in these titles, and how they're meant to be pronounced.

I can't *believe* these lazy developers keep making file sizes so damn large. Btw, how does technology work?

Okay... who wants to take the time to REALLY help me?

Long, long story short... I've been playing video games for about 20 years. My favorite hobby. Thousands upon thousands of hours spent playing. I love me some epic SP games like OoT, BOTW, Bloodborne, Final Fantasy, etc. And from time to time, a multiplayer game will just sink its claws into me ... literally weeks worths of hours in games like Halo 2 or PSO or Overwatch.

But fighting games? I've completely - COMPLETELY - ignored them. Other than Smash Bros, I've put a collective, I dunno, dozen hours into a few rounds of SF, or DoA, or Soul Calibur.

I've maybe played Street fighter an hour or two.

But I'm so sick and tired of every online game as of late being just as much luck as it is skill. I won't get into it here, but I kind of lost it the other day playing PUBG with my best friend - I'm just totally dependent on a good drop and good loot rather than the skill set of me and my enemy. He tells me I need to play fighting games with him, but I just have zero interest.

He'll kick my ass and they've never called to me. BUT, you know what, I *do* like the idea - fair rules and balance. One competitor. Supposedly skills and hand-eye come out ahead.

So I grabbed this for my Switch today. I know there are supposedly better versions. I know it's expensive. But I'm looking to play more on the system, anyway.

****

SO! How do I actually play this? Normal is kicking my ass - and every.single.online guide is for someone whom already has a grasp on the game. I don't.

How do I "git gud?"

How do I block? How do I defense? I see the button mapping ... but how do combos work? How do I do the fancy moves I see online? What makes II different than other titles? Why is II also polular? Context for anything and everything... I don't have it.

At 28, I have no false assumption I'll ever be "pro," or even "good," - but I'd like to someday bring a challenge when my buddy wants to play. Is that even possible? Or is this one of those genres that I'm never gonna grasp coming in so late?

If anyone can really break down how I should learn, and what to expect, I would really, really appreciate it.

^ For starters, I'd watch the Super SF2 Turbo Beginner Tutorial by David Sirlin:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d0cFs5mHQC4

Everything still mostly applies in Ultra SF2, and I found this tutorial a great resource when I was a beginner and still use a lot of the concepts from this tutorial and the following ones in SF2 as well as other fighting games. Even ones where I don't actively practice I can usually beat my friends who just button mash just because I have a better understanding on how to figure out what works.

Also don't worry about age. Tokido, who is 32 years old, won the biggest Street Fighter V tournament last weekend. Not saying you want to get to that level since you said you just want to at least get good enough to beat your friends, but just to put it into context that age doesn't really matter.
