Online Fighting Game Strategies for Surefire Success
Online fighting games are perhaps the most primitive type of games and also the most addictive one. There are variations in them, like some include weapons, while some include wrestling or boxing. No matter, what these games include, it is a passion for most ardent gamers to play online fighting games. You believe it or not but there are certain strategies which can be applied to mostly all fighting games. Here are some of them.
Surprised? But I have explanations for this one. Think, and recollect, what do you do while playing a fighting game. Don’t you memorize your last moves to get success, with or without intention? You apply moves that brought you success, while avoid those which failed. Getting success in most fighting games depends on adopting a successful combination of moves ranging from 3 to 30, and here the old but golden rule of memorizing can come to your help. Of course, for memorizing them, a constant practice is needed.
Fortunately in mostly all fighting games, there is a practice mode through which you can get the hang of your favorite combinations of moves. Even better are the tips and tutorials offered by most of these practice modes for learning all your favorite moves.
Focus on Defense
Normally, the ultimate goal of fighting games is to just beat your opponent unconscious. However players make a commonest mistake of all-out blitz. Players who only attack persistently are most likely to lose in the same manner because their enemy can block literally every attack and apply a brutal counterattack at the desired moment.
To avoid this mistake, you better focus on defense rather than attack; so, remember these points:
- A fighting game typically uses one defense for low attacks and one for higher (from the waist up) attacks. A low defense will normally result in missing high attacks completely since you will be crouched.
- Any combo cannot last forever, but as you get used to the game, you will start recognizing the end of your opponent’s combo string. Once their combo is over, you will get a natural opening to start your own attack. Only ensure that you have kept your defense up till you know definitely that your enemy’s attack has ended.
- Don’t only learn to block, but ensure to learn to interrupt a grapple or throw. If you block often, your enemy normally try to throw you. In most games there is a simple button press which when correctly timed will enable you to disrupt a grapple or throw. Learn and master this trick and you will get a virtually unbreakable defense.
The Most Effective Technique – Juggling
Juggling is the commonest and the most effective technique for advanced attack. To hit an enemy in the air and then start a long chain of combos is devastating. If you want to master this method, go to practice mode and learn all “launching” attacks, i.e. an attack that throws your enemy high in the air. Further, master at least one longer combo chain of your character till you can do it flawlessly for any number of times.
Fighting games form the most powerful genre of games. The early learning curve isn’t very difficult however; so, if you remember preceding tips and have a little attentiveness, you can prove your value in the virtual arenas against your opponents within no time.
