And the bolded is why I go so hard for it. The game is built to where every character has access to momentum

Are you talking about Vshift? Because the game launched with V reversal

And every fighting game will have top tiers and annoying characters. That's unavoidable. The problem is the effect they have on the game as a whole. Even when characters are dominant in SF5, they don't BREAK the game. Tokido's Akuma had a run but he didn't terrorize SF5

Nikkas dropped their mains for Yun for a reason. Elena literally fukks the game up. The game itself had unblockables :mjlol:


There is no matchup in SF5 as bad as Blanka vs T Hawk, Guile vs Bison or Vanilla Seth vs Gief(This matchup is arguably 10-0)

And I can admit that SF5 had one broken character. That was season 1 Nash. And luckily he got nerfed before too many people got hip to it
Yeah I meant V shift.

I honestly disagree with a lot of the discussion I see in here. Having more accessible knowledge may have increased the floor of fighters, but it did very little to push the ceiling. In any game that rewards legacy skill, the top players are still the ogs anyways even with all the new resources. Accessible knowledge is a good thing and more really should be available ingame. Youtube/wikis aren't what's clamping skill levels, the games mechanics are.

Also, for as much good as sf6 is doing (crossplay, rollback, single player, production value), the roster is looking super:flabbynsick: especially compared to the latest version of 3, 4, or 5 (which obviously isnt fair but still). This is DEFINITELY a season pass game. The redesigns for some characters are really good. This is the best most characters like chun li, rashid, and deejay ever looked. Only one in not really feeling is cammy since it seems basic compared to the Street fighter duel one. The much bigger issue is a lot of cuts of really cool characters and those new designs aren't it, although they could be better in motion. Jamie really impressed me.
The floor and ceiling have both raised exponentially. The ogs are still around and completing, but they ain't running shyt :mjlol: . Accessibility has made it to where the ogs and the newer players have legitimate competition with each other. Daigo has a losing record against Punk but Punk has a losing record against Tokido. Caba washes ogs regularly

Consider the fact that the only reason Japanese players dominated the previous generations was because they had the games for a year before they saw US release. A headstart like that is extremely difficult to catch but these days, where games are released everywhere at once, you see more even competition

I agree that fgs should improve on their in game education, but as it stands the scene's utilization of social media is a very competent tool

While that is true, you also have to account for the OGs getting ever closer to rocking flat tops.

I honestly can't wait for SF6 tbh. SFV has more than run its course at this point and I want to see what happens on a new game.

To be real with you, I'm not sure some of these cats are going to make the jump smoothly. Not that this is a diss to SFV, mind you, every time a sequel came out, some people didn't move on and that's fine. That's what separates the real OGs from the rest tho.

That's not true either tho :russ: those Japanese ogs are in their 40s and still do just fine. Topanga these last few days has been:whoo::whew:

Nikkas thought Daigo was :flabbynsick: until he grinded and understood the game. Now he's winning tournaments

i honestly don't think fighting games as a sport are old enough to have a proper idea of what :flabbynsick: is

One of the best Darkstalkers players in Japan is 61 and he still puts in work

All I'm saying is that at some point, slower reactions and father time kick in bro. :manny:

Daigo is legit insane tho, to be a top competitor for as long as he has is really incredible. I should check if there are any new FGC Translated vids with him talking about SF6. It's always interesting to hear him talk about games.

Why does Ed have 2 flags, the German flag and whatever that other flag is

Second flag is Shadaloo, aka Bison’s set. JP is mystery he may be a mid boss or final boss.
