Well first: Hi, i'm relatively new to Tekken games due to never having sony console before. After being inspired by some swedish streamer i picked up game and spent week researching and learning about character i picked: Asuka (yes, i wasted about 1-3 A4 lists writing down all her moves, combos, usable moves that i can perform easier, and then trimming it down to 20-40 moves and combo pieces)

And that's where positives ends. After being pummeled by almost everyone on ladder (i have physical problems with Korean backdashes, north-korean backdash already pushing my wrists) i got to 1-2 dan. But by then i really got frustrated by Asuka kit (severe lack of lows, almost no fast moves at round start, most of her damage from launchers but they are all mids, me relating TOO much on her counter-throws).

So i changed to Kazumi. Her kits looks relatively simple (tiger demon's b-f 2-1 is only problem for me) and her playstyle looks less related to mobility(i mean dashes/sidesteps) and more to choices.

I think you're relying too much on theoretical knowledge without building up experience in your gameplay, leading to you overthinking your matches and theorycrafting situations that might not be actually realistic in actual matches or misinterpreting stuff you think you understand because of lack of experience in those areas. For example, the argument about Asuka's lack of lows you mentioned:

Is her d/b+3 slow? Sure, it's slower than many moves, sure, but is still unseeable, has a very decent range and leaves opponents on crouch status and +4 frame advantage, limiting their retaliation vastly, while being fast enough to not be heavily punishable on block, making its risk/reward ratio pretty good as long as you don't telegraph your lows (which goes for even the best lows in the game, anyways). This move is well complemented by d+2, a mid CH launcher that leaves opponents crouching and is excellent for controlling space

You say that her d/b+4 forces her to expose herself with a 3 followup or 1+4, but you are not considering to simply don't use any followup after d/b+4, that is an high crushing low that leaves you neutral on hit and allows you to recover FC, that alone allows you to set some option.

I think you need to take your time and apply some of what you think you learned in theory one step at a time, build a gameplan and use it in your matches. Spending too much time playing the meta isn't as helpful as some other games

Oh. so it should be db+3 -> d+2? What? Really? Almost every variations of 2 launchers i used got blocked (as i understood they all mid and telegraphed, and f2 seems like leaving you TOO open if enemy blocks it). Most of the times b3 was thing that worked, and ws3 and b4-3 at other times.

Only CH i could use was b4 into 2-3 with ff3 after it.

db+4 into WS was something i used. But ws3 was working like 10% of the time and ws1-4 -> df3 was only other thing that i used (and that worked only in cases they not blocked mid, which is almost never)

Thanks for advice ^ _ ^

I will try and explain why those two moves complement each other well:

both d/b+3 and d+2 have a certain range, so they have the ability to keep your opponent in check at a distance. If Asuka had only d/b+3 at her disposal, the opponent would have an easier time dealing with that distance because he only needs to duck a lot. However, that's not the case, as d+2 is a mid, so it will hit ducking opponents, meaning Asuka can either condition her opponents to duck when at a certain range (very dangerous due to her good variety of mid launchers) or make her opponent very hesitant on what to do, forcing them to try and get closer (which will expose vulnerabilities). This kind of space control that Asuka can use plays very well into her major strenght, which is whiff punishing as, oftentimes, a frequently poked opponent will become impatient and start trying to retaliate aggressively. This is where Asuka, who kept herself at a distance, incorporates some movement forcing a whiff on the opponent's move and then launch for a combo.

This type of stuff can realistically happen in an Asuka match if the Asuka player has decent movement and matchup knowledge. Not every move is necessarily to be used one after another, you can always use them individually to set situations or to deal with situations. E.g. you can WS after d/b+4, you can also stay crouched and use tools Asuka have at her disposal from crouch, but before doing any of these things you have to check what your opponent is likely to do after being hit by your d/b+4, because if they see you going for a followup every time, knowing the low leaves neutral on hit, they can interrupt anything you do with a dickjab. But if you know they will respond with a dickjab, you can lowparry that or, in general, act accordingly. So you see, there's tons of different situations that can come out by a simple low hitting an opponent, and you can't cover every single one of them with hypothetical reasoning, you can only prepare yourself to different general options and then use them based on who you're playing against and which character your opponent is using.

Of course, eventually you'll find opponents that will adapt to your plans, and then you will have to adapt to them adapting and so on, that's where mind games come in and that's where experience and practical knowledge will play a huge part in your ability to play.

While on topic on crouching move. What property FC d/f3 have? It's a strong mid kick but from crouching position. It was really rarely blocked and produced some kind of control effect.

Some numbers:

Reflect Knuckles have 48 SPR

Magi Staff has 70 SPR

Lila has 182 SPR potted

All these combine to mean 15% IW SPR on your reflect knuckles roughly equalling the SPR total of a Lila with non-IW Magi Staff (which counts for most people atm) whilst triggering Lila's sweet fist passive.

If you dying cause lack of that 30% hp - you doing something wrong. DPS should never be in danger of dying.

Whilst this is true in theory, it only counts for clearing content with high end equipment rather than for everyone.

Having your DPS take that much more damage may allow you to swap a defensive buff for an offensive one, clear content with less TMRs, bring one less tank and a finisher instead, reduce stress if you click the wrong button etc.

If you want faster clears, imaginative clears, or to get that new trial reward when your roster isn't quite there, the survivability can be pivotal.

After first 2 good 5* s i got in month i started playing - i never had difficulty spikes. You just do research or delay some hard trials until you summon units needed.

tl;dr - actual new players that your advice works on playing for less or around 1-2 months.

Ehm... At least do actual work, and not just putting every item there is. This is not a blogspot.

Here is an example:

  • Bows - If you have Ang - you know what to upgrade. If you have Lunera/Fina - you already have Reincarnation.
  • Spears - GLS TMR upgrade? Everything else is to your liking: Pick strongest one or elemental one.
  • Maces - . . . Fangbreaker for tanks?
  • Fists - best category here: Aigaion or elemental fists are best here. Winged saint/Broken arm as defensive fist. Knuckles of Hope/Reflect Knuckle for Tanky Lila (RIP sweet baby)

So, quite lackluster round, save your refill pots for next one.
