Street Fighter 6 competition is fierce as players suffer double-digit losing streaks

Street Fighter 6 competition is fierce as players suffer double-digit losing streaks
Nico Vergara Updated on by

Street Fighter 6 continues its strong run atop best-selling charts, but it seems that casual players aren’t having as much fun with the game as many continue to collect double-digit losing streaks. Fighting games have always been notoriously unwelcoming to newcomers, and though the latest Capcom installment has taken some huge steps in improving its rookie onboarding process, the learning curve remains steep for a majority of its beginners.

Unfortunately, taking the time out to learn how to change controls in Street Fighter 6 also doesn’t help since other players are already so far along that you won’t even be able to get a combo off in matches. So in order to let off some steam, a few fans have now decided to go on Reddit in order to share their experiences with the rest of the community.

One user named sellinggarlandtix even shared a post on the Street Fighter subreddit that included an image of their match performance in the Battle Hub. Based on the record they’ve accumulated so far, it seems that they’ll still need to practice their combos a bit more as they’re currently sitting on a record of zero wins and 31 losses. However, a comment that they added further on says that they already won three matches, which means that their grueling losing streak paid off in the end.

A few of the commenters under the thread shared their own disheartening experiences as one user seemingly went through an 11-match losing streak recently. Another responder, on the other hand, apparently suffered a gruesome 220-game skid in Guilty Gear Strive, another equally difficult fighting game.

With all of these experiences in mind, losing streaks – especially in the fighting game genre – are often a common occurrence. This becomes even more ordinary for newbies as beat ’em ups have largely been inaccessible for those that want to start getting into it. With the arrival of Street Fighter 6, however, we may finally get to see more people get introduced to this exciting genre – just as long as they can persevere past all the discouraging losses.
