Nah, I'll post our matches nonetheless. I see that you're starting to beat my LiliKuni, so I switched to Paul. And hey, I used the most useless Paul move ever, b+2!
Besides, it's colorful customization from you. XD
nah, it's just the lag. Besides, Bryan and Asuka just happen to have moves that cover more distance than the other characters I dabbled in so far.

Day before yesterday I finally accepted that I'm not getting any better with that weeny Japanese lever. The past half year I tried everything I could think of to compensate and I'm just not improving anymore. I had to stop playing cos the nagging itch that tells me to hold the lever upright won't go away and it's physically agitating my hand. That night I understood how phantom pain feels like. My hands want to be upright so it can move properly but the stick is too short to be held upright. The longer I played, the more painful it got so I stopped and didn't play yesterday too as well hoping my hands just needed rest.
But when I tried playing again today, my hand just kept telling me subconsciously that it knows it has improved to the point that the Hori stick is just hindering any more progress. So again I quit. In frustration, I stuck a plastic coke bottle cap on top of the ball handle and wrapped it in tape just so I can test if my hand was telling the truth about the feel of having a bat handle.
It was very enlightening. The motions ARE easier. But longer stick demanded tugging father from the center so it was a bit of a burden on my unaccustomed wrist. The spring also feels weak now so I understand now why they say Korean levers demand stronger springs "so the lever can snap back faster".
Any day now, Imma look at the handware store for stronger spring... And another plastic bottle cap. Just one cap doesn't make it long enough for my thumb to grip.
You know, if you do that, it's no longer a fight stick, but a fight lever. ^^;
Anyway, I recorded some matches with Kunimitsu in a 2B's cosplay.
