One of the worst things you can do in any fighting game is go on “autopilot.” If you are not consciously thinking of your decisions, you’ll often find yourself making more mistakes than good decisions. In Street Fighter V — or any fighting game — the situation is always in flux, and if you aren’t paying attention, you set yourself up for easy reads and painful punishes.

In the latest episode of The Fighter’s Dojo, Frabisaur explains the mentality of doing things on autopilot — in that we if see that something is good, it’s easy to try to abuse it too much. However, learning how to not autopilot — which can create obvious patterns — is a very difficult, but valuable task. He explains this process in the video below.
