Okay so, Capcom said that if there were requests for it, they would maybe do another update. While im generally against more updates, another free one wouldnt kill me. I ask you, what would you like to see for chun? I figure this might be a fun thread because this place is deadsville lately…
(I really doubt this update will happen, but like I said, just to get some activity around here)
Anyway here goes:
No nerfs of any kind. Shes already bad.
1) Hosenka should start up way faster so that cr hp xx legs linked to u1 is easier. No damage nerfs, this link only does like 430 anyway. Another benefit of this buff is that U1 would become way more viable in more matches as the corner juggle will no longer be the main way of using it (which often has bad damage imo), many bad matchups will become more fair with the fact that u1 is now more useful because many things other characters can do against her become unsafe.
**2)**Instant overhead stomp to light kick cross up should be safer. I think the crossup after it should actually combo if possible and she should be able to land, and potentially block anything thats being mashed. This will give chun li more mixups as theres a million different followups that can happen after this, all of which lead to the damage that she does not usually get. Most people agree that mixups are very important in this game (akuma, ibuki, seth, viper are all good), chun li should not be left behind, especially considering the overhead stomp game appears to be something capcom had in mind from the beginning.
**3)**remove back+medium kick for fucks sake. Very few people like that target combo, it does next to no damage and you cant follow up on it very well. I would much rather neutral medium kick to come out so that I can use it as an anti-air.
**4)**Less of a floaty jump. For obvious reasons its bad, but it defies the chun li archetype. Chun li has always had a really good jump in other games. a big chunk of her damage comes from the air target combos, it shouldnt be so telegraphed. Im not asking for a crazy fast jump or anything, but we should get something better…
these four things would make chun a very competitive character in my opinion. I pretty much want every single thing here, but** if even one of them is missing**, then I think her damage needs to go WAY up, including on u2. Also, EX SBK shouldnt be so easy to stuff, it should beat all dive kicks. If she cant have good offense, then she needs good defense.
