yes
2019-03-16 01:53
Yes but it is more repetition
2019-03-16 01:55
the repetition and muscle memory is basically equivalent to aim ,there's much more than that
2019-03-16 04:50
as a practitioner of Muay Thai and a player of fighting games myself, I guarantee that the repetition is basically the same. We repeat the combos hitting the mitts and pads so many times that the repetition makes the muscle memory do the job itself when necessary, and they both are action/reaction based fundamentals
2019-03-16 13:33
Depends on the game but yeah fighting games takes WAY more skill than any eSports or shooters. I used to play 3rd strike competitively when I was younger I got to taste that myself.
2019-03-16 02:06
maybe it was harder because you were younger :)
2019-03-16 02:09
Nah it was more difficult because fighting games takes way more than just mechanics it's a lot about the mental game, muscle memory, reading your opponent etc etc btw I was way better at games when I was younger, now in days 25+ I get out aimmed by garbage noobs on CS Go because I don't have enough time to actually play this game more than casually.
2019-03-16 02:10
You don't get outaimed by noobs if you play a situation correctly
2019-03-16 02:13
I play entry normally and I'm one of the most aggressive players in my whole country so for me playing proper CS will never be an option.
2019-03-16 02:15
just because the fighting games fit your style more than csgo doesn't mean they are harder :D
2019-03-16 02:16
No I would say it's about the same in both games if you play more aim style no brain you are going to get punished a lot same as if you are very aggressive in fighting games constantly jumping in and dashing forward etc you will get punished a lot as well.
2019-03-16 02:17
3rd strike is the best coop cup every year
2019-03-16 04:51
Absolutely they take skill. The constant way people try to dismiss them is proof enough of that.
2019-03-16 02:18
men what u think about people who say chess isnt a sport😎
2019-03-16 02:20
If esports are a sport, then chess is a sport; If they aren't, then chess isn't.
2019-03-16 04:55
so chess and esports arent? thanks😎
2019-03-16 14:33
fighting games are full of elitist wankers stay away from them unless pissing around with your mates on multiplayer
2019-03-16 02:22
I disagree
2019-03-16 03:29
they arent full of elitists?

Well if you consider sensible people as elites then yes. Scrubs are those who flame you for their losing and inability and unwilingness to adapt.
2019-03-16 09:25
Nope not true at all... At all.

Of course you would be mad AF. I would be mad at myself too in your place.
2019-03-16 15:32
You could say the same thing about CS. A+ and level 10 is filled with people getting tilted fast af and it's been that way forever
2019-03-16 05:00
Yes, cs I pretty elitist and so are many eSports titles... The point of the comment was fighting games are more so than even Dota which is well beyond csgo.
2019-03-16 05:02
yes they take skill but because of their vastly smaller player pools it is much more difficult to become a top competitor in CS / dota / LoL than in most fighting games
2019-03-16 02:23
also u dont need a team in FG's. its all 1vs1
2019-03-16 02:25
Small player pools? I don't think you watch fighting game majors and tournaments.i think your mistaking local tournaments.
2019-03-16 03:31
+1, Fighting game tourneys are usually 4x-8x bigger than cs tourneys.
2019-03-16 04:56
Yeah
2019-03-16 13:27
you really think 15 million players log in to guilty gear xrd every month? lol dude
2019-03-16 06:57
Street fighter games,mortal Kombat games,dragon Ball z fighters,Tekken games,guilty gear rev 2 all have a huge following on console and in tournaments and majors,even arcade scenes are big too.
2019-03-16 13:27
nowhere near what CSGO, LoL, or Dota have, in either their casual playerbases or in competitive circuits
2019-03-16 20:17
your comparing team based games to 1vs1 games....literally in every game tournament/major its at least 2000+ people competing in a bracket system for 1 game.and the funny part is anyone can join these tournaments compared to csgo.
2019-03-16 20:32
what do you think ESEA is
2019-03-17 01:07
Some online shitty league
2019-03-17 01:20
yep when u have to study frame data and matchups and learning combos etc.
2019-03-16 02:24
Yes but not as much as cs go
2019-03-16 03:33
Can't tell if bait.
2019-03-16 04:07
i cant tell either, ive lost the track on life
2019-03-16 04:08
I bet

Fighting games have been decreasing in skill floor, but the skill ceiling at a high level still remains interesting. You could say that about most genres though. 3rd strike -> SF5 Melee -> Ultimate GGAXC -> DBZF There is still a lot of skill involved, but often games reduce the amount of technical skill and increase leniency in timings. Not necessarily a bad thing, but some people do like technical games more. Matchups, studying frame data, and endless hours practicing combos and links are pivotal in all fighters.
2019-03-16 04:16
That's like Cs 1.6 to css to csgo.

I would say that SF5 to SF series is R6 siege to CS.

not as much as cs but yea
2019-03-16 04:31
I think you can do so much if you play smart on cs, and theres no such thing in fighting games.

Yes, and the pressure of figuring out the opponent is 100% on you. You'll feel most helpless if you can't counter something, so that's when you hit training mode and put hours to figure it out. . Hardcore genre, mentally and technically that's why people are afraid of it.
2019-03-16 04:56
yes
2019-03-16 05:17
If we are comparing pure individual skill in CS:GO vs FGs then you would have to concede it to FG's without a doubt. But as a game overall, CS:GO is much more difficult because of the micro AND macro aspects of the game. However, CS is an exception because I agree that FG's take way more skill than shooters in general (COD).
2019-03-16 05:38
Fighting games take more skill then csgo.
2019-03-16 12:57
I played it little bit with my friends and i think it does take skill, surely.
2019-03-16 09:32
Never played ANY fighting game, my childhood was minecraft

SF 3rd stricke, and KOF 2002, were amazing games, and it takes a lot of skills to master (esp KOF 2002)
