There are two forms of quitting out, the first way is when you search for an opponent in ranked match when you fare matched up with your opponent you can press to ready up or to back out of the lobby room. If you find yourself matched up with someone with a significantly high level you can back out and re-search.

The tier list for 3rd Strike or for any fighting game usually different from source to source however in the 3rd Strike tier list where ever you look you will find Ken and Chun-Li somewhere in the top, with this said Ken and Chun-Li are good selections for beginning players:
Ken has good consistent damage making him an excellent selection for first comers. He has a fast dash so he can get in on opponents easily and just about every one of his moves can combo into super. Things you want to keep in mind with Ken are:
Choice of Super: Shippuu-Jinrai-Kyaku: +
This is Ken's universal Super, while it may not do as much damage as Super Dragon Punch (Shouryuu-Reppa) it can however combo out of basically anything Ken does making it the best choice of Super.
This is a very fast and easy way to gain meter even just inputting this at nothing will build meter. It is also a fast input so if you see your opponent trying to get in on you while you build meter you can counter accordingly.
This move is a fast downward kick, it's very easy to hit confirm with it into Shippuu-Jinrai-Kyaku and it also acts as an excellent poke to get in.
Chun-Li is a patient smart character to play as, you turtle and wait for openings and poke out your opponents for little damage but once you have enough meter you can hit confirm in Super for a large amount of damage at one time making up for the time you spent being defensive.
Choice of Super: Super Lightning Legs (Houyoku-Sen) +
Just like Ken's Shippuu-Jinrai-Kyaku it is very easy to combo into and it comes with many benefits as well. It has invincibility so you can use it to punish unnecessary projectiles shot at you, gives you a lot of meter while doing it and takes off an unfair amount of life.
Not only is this one of Chun-Li's best pokes but it also builds a lot of meter. It has a lot of priority and beats out just about any character's normals, while the downside to this is that it may have such small range it is easily made up for with its speed, damage and everything else.
Just like Ken's downward kick this move is one of Chun-Li's best normals and pokes and can easily be hit confirmed into Super Lightning Legs (Houyoku-Sen).
