A video I had in mind for long but finally got the time to sit and do. It’s also a message due to my last experience back into competitive gaming. The FGC can be kind of discouraging for many persons, but with practice , work, and good spirits anyone can join.
However the worst part are those persons who will discourage anyone or even understimate players because of their gender or gaming background.
I’m happy to say it was never the case in the KI community. It’s a shame to say it’s been always my own country where I’ve struggled an encountered discouraging situations (things will change, I’m sure of that, it is starting).
My neighbour countries and the US, who have a more “mature” FGC, where the ones I relied the most regarding KI. It’s not strange that some players don’t even know where I live and relate me with those other countries (yeap, we are all in South America )
But there are still those who think that being a woman means you are not supposed to play fighting games (yeap unbelievable!! but I’ve seen it and experienced such thing). Thankfully they are the minority
At this stage of my life I couldn’t care much about what those guys say, but for some girls and women who would also feel attracted to fighting games (or competitive gaming for that matter) could be discouraging, I’ll say: Don’t be!! those persons don’t stand for the whole FGC! Play as long as it makes you happy
Figthing games community is a cool one, but just like in fighting games, there’s always room for improvement. I cheer for that!
PS: captures are for fun and there’s no humiliation intended, still, some deserved the ultras XD
