I got challenged by this guy (xxxcloudmcstrife27 or something) who had like 1200 wins and 120 loss. So I decide to give it a shot... I like a good challenge.
We both play as Kung Lao.
Round 1 - Fight!
He teleports and starts one of these sequences of combos one after the other, whaddaya know I'm down to 20% health in under 10 seconds. And I sure as hell held down the block button all the time.
I combo him once or twice with mixups.
He does the dive kick x4 combo in the corner and I die.
Round 2 was a bit more decent, but still, I wasn't fast enough and couldn't compensate for the slight lag we had. He used each every combo/trick/mixup and mind game he could use and he got me. I know I couldn't block fast enough and he was moving all over the screen and countering me like I was a noob. I could drop his health down to maybe 50% but that's because he obviously took it easier seeing I was no match for him. Lag didn't seem to affect him AT ALL.
I thought I was at about 85% efficiency with my main (lotsa hours practicing with my main and all other chars. about 200 fights online), but seeing how he played, made me realize I still got a lot to learn. A LOT!
Have you had a similar experience where you thought you were pretty good with your char. but got owned online?
