I've seen Its a big thing for some that they have a problem with people who "main" characters. There are some people that are just going to hit the Random select slot which are you and why?
I will definitely be maining my characters.
The Why IMO:
1. I actualy don't play Street Fighter games because I don't like any of the characters. If I can't find a good rep for me in a game I rarely play it but that's me and my own issues lol.
2. For the most part I learn the ins and outs of my chars, master them and have my ultimate weapon when I get serious esp since I will be taking this game very serious and possibly be holding a monthly tourny, prizes and all.
3. I will also be attending other Tournies as well so I need to be good with some characters but Great with few or one. Its an impressive feat to be good with the whole roster but I believe in either be good with all or great with one but thats just how I work some may be more gifted than I. Plus I'm not a fan of counter picking. I may have a Char for 1v1s and another for FFAs my doubles or 2v2s will depend on who I'm with and how I feel at the time besides my clan and I have great synergy with all our mains in Smash I doubt this'll be different.
4. I have favorites.
At first I will be using random just to get a feel fOr all the characters, then I will use Dante
same here, I'm maining Dante for sure but I will know my enemies strengths and weaknesses so I def WIL use everyone for this purpose alone
I will probably main 2-3 characters depending on their strenths and playstyles.
I start with a Main, master that character until I'm tired of them, but not he game, so I switch to a new character, and so on and so forth, usually spending less and less time with each character, until eventually it just makes more sense just to pick random becuase I'm not sure who I want to play any more, my original main always remains my best character, while I'm decent with most the rest, and pretty terrible with just a few. Random is my way of keeping the game interesting after my initial months of interest have worn off and I need to mix it up keep that same level of interest. If random gives me one I never used much and am terrible with, then that just means a tougher/fresher experience for me, and if random gives me my old main it means a quick victory in the pocket to keep me interested and playing without getting bored since each game is a random character. (And maybe DLC characters to freshen the game too???)
I do like to main certain characters I like and I don't stop until I succeed, but the thing is in fighting games I love to counter pick so that means I have to get good with everyone in order to do so, and I do just that, now that doesn't mean that I'll main every character in the roster, it just means I'll main like 3 or 4 characters, and everyone else I'm just decent with at least to where I can win a few good matches against good players online so I find myself picking random more than picking an indivisual character.
