Rage Quitters and You.

Well here we are again. At the beginning of a new game. Street Fighter V(SFV) launched just two weeks ago and one of the most common issues with new games seems worse than ever. Rage quitters. Now I’m not saying this doesn’t happen in other games, but Capcom’s approach to rage quitters in SFV was more or less non-existent. At the moment we just have to deal with it, and many deal with it in different ways. I’m here to offer you my point of view on rage quitting in hopes that you’ll find a way to get past this stage of the game, and perhaps other games in the future.

How to Karin: How to land all them fancy combos you practiced. (SFV Guide)

howtokarin

What I’ve found is that many players know how to do combos and know “what the good buttons” are. But how do you use them? I’ve spent some time with Karin and I have a bit of info that might help players that are having a hard time getting the hits they need to do their combos.

After the break I’ll outline Karin’s ranges, her effective normals and strategies at those rangers, and a few random tips to get you climbing the ranks.

Note: Every single thing in this guide is on a case by case basis. Things I say are bad can be good in some situations. Things I say are good can be very bad in certain scenarios. Use this guide a exactly that; a guide. This is not a set of rules of how to play Karin correctly. It’s merely a starting point that you can use to learn how to operate the character. As you grow as a player take risks and learn when some of the “Don’ts” become “Dos.”

If you don’t understand the terminology I’m using then please check out a beginner’s guide. 

Alright let’s go!

First post. Let’s go!

I’m not sure what I’m doing but I figure it’s about time I just launched this site and got posting. I constantly post things all around the internet and I think it would be best to consolidate them. I’m going to post Youtube videos I’ve made, articles I’ve written, guides I’ve written, stupid tweets I’ve made, and any other projects I happen to get around to. Thanks for checking out the site and hit me on Twitter if you’re digging it. @ThatLuckyBear
