About ScrubLine

Since the release of Street Fighter IV in 2009 the fighting game community has seen a revival unlike any before. In the last 2 years there has been a surge of various fighting games being created or receiving sequels (BlazBlue, The King of Fighters XIII, Marvel vs. Capcom 3), and this momentum is still going strong with upcoming titles (Street Fighter 3rd Strike Online, Street Fighter X Tekken, SkullGirls). Combine this with the accessibility of the internet and suddenly the public gets exposure to an scene which previously was only known to the most dedicated of players.

One of the aspects of a community growing is that new generations of people are introduced to it. As such, the number of “scrubs” playing fighting games has also grown. They watch the streams and dream of the day that they too can go toe to toe with Justin Wong and Mike Ross. They lurk message boards such as Shoryuken and Test Your Might, looking for every little tidbit of information they can pick up and add to their knowledge. YouTube not only lets them view techniques and combos that before could only be seen in person, but lets them upload their own videos of online matches or other techniques they hope to have discovered and named.

But while the scrub has access to a wealth of information previously unknown, this can also become overwhelming. Simple questions become difficult to ask and can get lost in the mass of posts that once labeled players as “09ers”. Some may read guides written by excellent players and still be left confused on concepts. Sometimes the question that needs to be asked is simple, but the player has no one to ask directly and no idea where such a question should be asked on a forum.

This is where ScrubLine comes in.
We are here to answer your questions, and will do our best to answer those that cannot easily be found by browsing through a forum or guide. Granted we will not be able to answer all of them, but there are some deep personal questions that a player needs to know the answer to, such as:
“Why is it that my friend, that I beat 8-2, does better than me at tournaments?”
“I find fireballs frustrating. How can I get around them?”
“Should I use a pad or a stick?”
“I can snipe like a pro in Call of Duty, so why can’t I do an anti-air?”
“Why can’t I close out a round, when I’m winning by 50%?”
“Why do I find myself strangely attracted to Sanchez and ChaiThai?”

We’re here to help you!
