It's all about mind games when fighting against one.
The huge hurdle is learning all the matchups again and knowing what's punishable or not.
As for the trials, they are all executable but many of them are just impractical.
To a certain degree I agree, but the footsies game in KoF is a bit more complicated than it is in SF4. You can't just lock someone down with some ridiculous spamming strategy and expect it to work, part of this being because of how mobile the characters are. KoF's speed is another factor. I'm not saying that SF4 is completely irrelevant to this game, but things like being able to mash Ultra/SRK/whatever to get out of combos and such, something that's a big part of SF4 just doesn't work here.
Focus Attacks are a whole different story. I think the Evade button is a much better mechanic but that's all just opinion.
And I agree about the trials. If anything, it's a good place to start just to see what moves cancel/combo into what other moves.
