I'm still playing arcade mode in "hard" difficulty, a rather easy one. Why? Because the last opponent (Seth) and the special "rival" opponent ("Now, fight you rival" - Ryu, in my case) are super hard to beat, while all the previous fighters are simply ridiculous. Whilst I can manage the "rival", Seth is a real problem to me.
Is it because
- Akuma is a particularly weak matchup against Seth?
- There is a crazy increase of difficulty during the endgame, like the rival is one level above the selected difficulty, and the final boss is 2 levels above? Since I can easily beat Ryu or Seth when I create a match against one of them in this difficulty, it seems pretty credible.
- I just suck like hell?
Does anyone know how the difficulty increases in arcade mode (especially in the endgame)?
