Welcome! From your other posts, I can see you're in Europe too. Try getting the Steam version, most of the people migrated with their online fights there, and online on the console version is pretty bad anyway...
Yeah I've heard so.It's just that I'd hate to pay for the steam version around 28euro so I'm waiting for maybe a sale or something and of course I need monies(that i don't have at the moment).I'm really considering buying it on steam only because I wanna be able to have decent matches online and I assume there are many more people to play against on this version.And yeah,I'm from Europe.Thanks for the welcome.

Take this with a grain of salt as I'm pretty much a beginner myself but I'm of the opinion that PvP>>>CPU.
When I was playing Blazblue and I was pretty much a newbie I dove into online matches pretty fast and in fact my very first match resulted in my very first win(lucky) but playing online for a few hours and for a few days helped me tremendously.I don't think if I'd spent the same amount of time playing against the cpu would have helped as much because the pace is a lot slower and not losing doesn't force you to learn much.
At the same time it can be pretty discouraging if you keep losing and it's more likely that you'll be up against intermediate players as opposed to players your level.

As someone mentioned earlier try to play against the CPU in training mode.Also try a few combos against the training dummy and repeat commands you might have trouble with.That's what I do in practice mode.

To me it seems more like a KoF vs SF type of thread.I'll try to read all 33 pages.There has been a similar thread in shoryuken and I think it has received some good answers.If the link you posted consists mostly of people debating over SF and KoF and taking sides depending on the game they play/like more,I'll try to provide the shoryuken one where a member who plays both replies in some really detailed posts.Of course if anyone's interested in that.

Sorry for necro.

Hello there,and welcome.
It's a shame no one has welcomed you yet for so many days so I took the liberty to do it despite being new as well as well as being somewhat late to welcome you.
It would be great if you could contribute as well and hang around.

I got myself KoFXIII some months ago and at first I found it really confusing with all the cancels and the meter management.It was pretty overwhelming.I also had no one introduce me to the KoF games so I'm going into this completely alone.
I've been playing video games since I was 8 but I had been avoiding 2d fighters until a few years ago cause I always found 3d fighters fancier,oh well.Regardless I've been pretty casual with 2d fighters and it's only now I'm really starting to get interested in them.It took me a while to decide on the game I'd like to perhaps take more seriously and somehow I ended up deciding on giving KoFXIII a shot,maybe cause the community seemed nicer?I'm not sure.

I've had a few matches online(about 40 in total) so far and I've gotten destroyed most of the time but I try not to let it discourage me cause it's part of the learning experience.It's true that the PS3 version makes everything more difficult online and I've been considering purchasing the steam version too but I'd hate to buy it full price since I already have it.I mostly consider it for the online gameplay as I've heard it's an improvement over the PS3 version.

I haven't decided on a team yet,but I've had Mai since the beginning and Andy I decided to include along the way.Right now I'm trying out King cause she seems to make the online matches somewhat easier but I'd be really interested in learning K' and trying out more characters along the way.

Sorry for my long post and thanks for having me here.

Training Room / I have a question about online matches vs pro matches
« on: September 13, 2014, 10:32:06 PM »
So far my only experience playing KoF somewhat competitively has been from people online,as I don't really know anyone in real life who plays KoF.
I have this question,whenever someone's levels higher than me(I mean that they know what they're doing as opposed to being a complete novice) 90% of the time(if not more) they save their meter and gauge for their last character so they can perform the Max cancel.Generally they preserve their meter(usually full of it) for that cancel.I know it's pretty devastating if successful but I wonder why do they skip drive cancel?I'm mostly confused because I've watched some videos of pro players and they play in a different style and I just don't understand what I should do myself.I try to use drive cancel in my combos or super cancel...Should I save up my meter and gauge too for the Max cancel to use it in the third round?

Thank you for the reply!

Sorry if I made any mistakes regarding the terminology,I'm still having a bit of trouble with that.

No idea if you still check this forum,but feel free to add me or something.
I'm in Europe(Greece).
As far as level goes,I'm pretty much a beginner but I'd like to train and hopefully improve with time.

I'd like to train too as I'm pretty much a beginner and sometimes it's really hard to find matches online,let alone find someone around my level.
