Meet & Greet / Hey fellow fighters

My name's Zach.  As of the past 2 or so years, I've really gotten into 2D competitive fighting games.

My dive into the fighting genre was virtua fighter 5.  That game made me realize how much beauty and sheer competitive depth lies in the art of making fighting games.  But my interest in 2D fighters became piqued by BlazBlue, and I've had so much fun playing BlazBlue that 2D fighters are my new idée fixe.  I have at least tried out a decent number of fighters, including BlazBlue, ssf4, sc2/4/5, ssbm/brawl, vf5, mvc1+3, and now Kof13.  

Probably the only reason I have kof13 is because my roommate took my BlazBlue and I didn't bother to get it back, and I wanted a new fighter.  I've only had kof13 for about a week, but I can already tell I am going to be playing kof13 for years on end.  At first, the game felt very basic and restrictive coming from BlazBlue, but now I understand that it is neither of those adjectives, but rather incredibly controlled and refined.  It is incredible.  Perhaps the best fighter ever made; so natural and intuitive to pick up, but impossible to master; something that can't be said to the same extent of BlazBlue with its ridiculous cast, larger moveset and nonlinear combo sequences.  

Anyway, I've decided to learn Kensou/Leona/Andy in that order, but I am a bit unsure if that setup is the best.  I'd like Leona in the middle, but I don't know if I should switch Kensou/Andy, or even switch Leona/Andy if better.  

I probably won't get into the competitive scene any time soon just because I am very reserved, and I am not sure if I have anything to contribute to this community, but I can try.  I have a hard time connecting with people so I don't really try that anymore.  Sorry for the winded and pointless introduction, and thanks for reading.
