What surprises me is despite the fact that everybody in Japan is teasing the fact Hugo sucks and stuff, his character ranking (and actually win % as well) doesn’t really reflect he’s as bad as what they say.
To me I find this list really interesting because it’s based off a large pool of players and honestly if you played at arcades in Japan their average level is quite high.
I don’t want to call this a tier list because a lot of it is effected by the popularity of a character however it does give people something to think about especially when certain characters perceived really good like Fei Long/Cammy (even though he’s nerfed most players agreed it’s not that bad) not doing so great while other characters like Honda which people think is RIP in this version is doing ‘alright’.
Well, Hugo is one of the new characters in USF4. He adds something new to USF4 and is also very different. And if your previous main got nerfed or hasn´t received anything interesting, you might lose the interest to main them after all, then one of the newcomers might be a good option for the players there.
