OnTilt's Guide for Keyboard Players. This isn't so much a guide and more just an explanation of how I have my keyboard configuration set up and why. I should also mention that it is primarily directed at players you use the keyboard only although the key concepts should extend over to Keyboard + Mouse users as well. August 2015 OnTilt_ Reddit
How to beat spammers A discussion about what to do when people use the same move repeatedly--especially when using moves that can be used from a long range, or come out quickly. Sept 2015 SorgonBubb Reddit

Input Basics, Advanced Execution Techniques, Making Combos Easier  A lot of people I've been talking to struggle with the combos in [my] Combo List so I thought i would cover some input basics for new players. I'll also discuss some advanced execution techniques which you may be unaware of and how you can apply them to your combos to make executing them easier and more consistent. April 2015 maximusmaxy Reddit
Combos, Pseudos and Followups I had noticed that there wasn't a up to date list of combos and decided to change this fact. I try to keep it as up to date as possible and I will continue to update it as much as I can. January 30, 2016 (Is updated over time) AoiHono (Blue Flame) Steam Guide

SFV FUNDAMENTALS w/ WWE'S XAVIER WOODS! Ep. 1 - The Beta Adventures of Gootecks & Mike Ross A video that goes over the fundamentals of fighting games.

It's about Street Fighter 4, but many of the fundamentals will apply to other fighting games.

To quote what one player said about it:

"Gootecks explains the key moves at the foundation of strategy: close pressure attacks, far/ranged pressure attacks, sweeps, and throws (and lots and lots of blocking). It uses the example of SF5, but everything thing here still applies. It also teaches you how to learn all your timings from the practice mode, which is extremely important."[1]

Etiquette, Quick Match, and Tournaments A video about etiquette in fighting games.

The video focuses specifically on Yomi, a card game that simulates a fighting game, but the ideas are applicable to other games.

Whenever Simon says "Yomi" just imagine he's saying "Brawlhalla."

Really hating this game. A discussion thread created by someone having difficulty getting started with a fighting game.

It's for another game, though you may find the support people gave him helpful and practical.

He went on to make another post—Really loving this game—where he said:
"earlier this week, I was getting really frustrated with my performance, and I made a thread called "Really hating this game". I got tons of advice from several people on the kind of mindset I should have, what I should try to do when actually playing, etc. A few days later, and after several matches (both wins and losses), I'm having a blast. I feel like I'm learning with every match, I'm figuring out how to adapt to people, and my character is just so much fun to play."
