Hello! Advanced apologies if this is the wrong place to be asking this question. I admit I'm a bit aimless. I've been super excited for TFH since I backed the project, but I'll admit I sort of let the beta slip by me for a long while. Part of me just wanted to experience the whole package as a complete work, rather than experience it update by update (And another part of me was super busy, because work, etc.). But alas, perhaps waiting was a mistake. I'm currently playing the beta now, with release imminent, and I have to say I'm impressed! But I also have to say: BOY do I suck! I realize fighting games are a difficult prospect to get into. I've dabbled in them for years on and off, to the point where I understand basic terminology, can execute moves well and pull off rudimentary combos. But when I play the beta, I just get my face smashed in by either the AI (normal and above trashes me) or any human player I encounter. It's never even a contest, like, to the point that I'm lucky to land a single hit. I usually just spend my time in the corner, furiously trying to tech, and failing. We all start somewhere, I realize! But what's starting to get to me is that, I'm beginning to realize I don't know how to learn in this situation. Usually with tough games, I can examine my failures, locate errors, and then try to understand how to improve. But when I get hoove-stomped into a fine mist in TFH it feels like a blur, and the only thing I understand when it's all over is "Boy, I'm bad at this". I'm have a real struggle extracting information from the experiences, and thus not really sure how to improve. Practice mode is great for trying out combos, etc., but it's a far cry from the experience of an actual opponent. That's all a hugely longwinded way of asking: What's the best way to approach the fundamentals? What's the best way to understand my weaknesses and engage the game in a way where I can start to acquire some skills, rather than just be overwhelmed? I gather I need a heck of a lot of work on defense, but I'm not sure how to even approach that. I apologize for the long post, but would appreciate any advice. I'm still excited for the game and really want to support it and be a part of it - Though I begin to wonder if it's too late, and I should have been trying from the beginning of the beta! Thanks much in advance.
