So I rarely do any long runs in ranked, I find friendly's a lot more fun.
I think win points should be recorded as soon as the deadly blow has been dealt.
When I was using around 6-7 different characters (ryu, dhalsim, honda, viper, chun-li, deejay, sagat) i was hovering between 1500-1900 .. I switched to strictly viper about 2-3 weeks ago, and i finally cracked 2500.
Having one stable character helps you figure out all the different match-ups, I had to learn that the hard way.
Playing mirror matches against higher level players (and watching replays) helped a lot too. Thanks Vaceotyn! I learned stuff I had never used myself before.
edit: further to that point, I learned from TenOnez that staying mid-range and having patience will move you up another 200-300BPs, compared to reckless offense. Best to wait for opportunities to get really aggressive, then pull back. Changing your speed/pace forces ppl to adapt, which they sometimes can't.
