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

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.
