I'll do my best. I have a 4.0 as far as American high school goes, but IGCSEs are way, way harder, and I passed those with fine grades, so those should hold more value. According to these schools, I have to be listed under "Asian," so I'm gonna use some of that Asian Persuasion. 

So... I might avoid that particular minority.

 

It varies by school and program but, white and asian are not so helpful.

 

That said, don't lie. Lying only digs a hole.

Aren't you from Pakistan? You really wouldn't be lying. Pakistan is located in Asia. Their is a misconception in the US about all Asians looking southeast Asian.

Watching Bonchan makes me want to play Sagat, but I just don't have the fireball game to make it work.

Highland/TotalSagat has some great videos that explain his fireball game a bit. I annoyed the Ken by throwing two or three fireballs in a clear rhythm and then ducking afterwards in the same rhythm (faking the start of a fireball motion), and then DP’ing him when he jumped. You just can’t autopilot it, and you have to be a lot more random at round start ranges where there’s more time to react and land a jump in.

 

not that i’m any good lol; I always get frustrated and drop him for someone quicker, but Sagat is my favourite character in V.

I was messing around with Sagat yesterday and I think he’s really cool...just not for me lol. I’ve noticed I really enjoy doing long/cool looking combos and his are kinda basic. For better or worse I like being flashy lol.

 

That is one thing I really like about Nash. Teleport, Stealth Dash, and VS2 let him freestyle a tiny bit. He can definitely get down to 10% scaling with either VT and it’s lowkey frustrating 🤣

Decided to play Sagat in SFV for a bit, and made a jumpy Ken ragequit at the end of the first round on our second fight. That made my day.

 

Glad you had fun playing Sagat. Always feels good when you can outplay someone to where they literally lose it. Especially with zoning in this game.

 

I had something set aside for this moment though.....where the hell did I put it.....aha!

I can get there with Chun too. I just need to put work in and stop being a bitch.

🤣 yeah, i deserve that, lol. My issue is that at the end of the day, i want to get good, and i can get really frustrated when i lose. I love playing Sagat, but it’s a struggle. Chun does feel like the best character for me (especially now that i can do her BNB reliably, not sure what changed), as she’s fast, has good pokes, some dirt, and pretty much plays exactly how i want her too, which has been hard for me to find in this game. The change to her HK Legs causing a knockdown helped a lot with my old issues with her too.

 

But then i watch a sagat clip and i lose any desire to just do well with anyone else, and only want to do well with the King.

 

Also, SFV chun allows me to play how i normally play (such as how I play MK11, 3S, etc), but Sagat in SFV feels like a unique experience. A real uphill battle that will test my fundamentals, which makes SFV a unique experience from MK11, 3S, etc.

 

edit: so yeah, a bunch of excuses as to why i flip mains so much, lol. I do think SFV is fairly unique in this case though. I don’t stray too far from my mains in the other games mentioned.

Maaaaaan I have this dilemma in every fighting game. There's the character I want to play, and the one that actually works. 

 

Seriously, the only reason I like 3S is because I can win a game or two with Chun because she's so incredibly top tier and she's still a cool character.

Deep down, tho, I really wish I could win with Hugo😭 

 

This is why every game needs Honda. To make my life easier

Also @DayaanI saw your college post the other day and wanted to add another $0.02 to the pile. Late due to being easily distracted this weekend. Getting officially older does that.

 

You seem like you have your shit together so I wouldn't worry over much about the actual effort of college itself. In my experience college is mostly about - and most valuable - in that it mimics life in these ways: no one is going to bail you out or push you to do things you need to do, and a lot of it is learning about how to deal with people.

 

The people I've known who have had the most issues with college are the folks who were the least likely to self-motivate or focus. The college gets paid regardless of if you actually do the work or not, so unless you get a prof that is really invested you are probably going to be mostly left to your own work ethic. That can be a blessing or a curse, depending on how you operate.

 

Likewise, college is probably the first time you really get to experience the phenomenon of how much the person asking for the work makes a difference with how you approach the work. Understanding your professors and what they want out of you can make a big difference in how good or bad a time you have in a given course. There is still some objectivity to the work itself but the better you get a read on what your prof wants the easier of a time in general you will have. Part of that is you will feel confident about how the work you are producing will likely be evaluated, and part of it is also you'll be able to gauge just how much work needs to go into any given class.

 

The actual work itself in college can be specifically difficult but very broadly it mostly comes down to how badly you want it and how good you are at managing yourself. If you say focused, read the room, and pace yourself you'll do just fine.

Had to break balls a bit. Took me more effort to dig back for that quote than it was probably worth. 😁

 

Its definitely an SF5 thing. Remember how much Akhos would bounce around chars? That wasn't necessarily uncertainty; outside of a rare few characters in this game most characters feel like they're missing something. It is really easy to "grass is greener" yourself in this game. "The character I'm playing now doesn't have X, but this char does. Lemme play them. Ah shit, this new char doesn't do Y for shit. Well that 3rd character does Y well.....fuck they suck at Z." Due to the jacked up engine and design ethos of this game you're gonna run into character gaps, and usually not in a "fun" way.

 

For a lot of chars in this game you just have to settle. Much like other things in life, find the char/chars where the good outweighs the bad then just roll with it. Finding that "perfect" char in this game just feels like chasing your own tail.

Sounds interesting. Hope it’s good.

 

 

Hope they make it about the actual character and not try to turn it into a racial agenda.

Cause the Story of who basically turns into Nobunagas Bodyguard is as interesting as the tale of the british Samurai.
