eh, i would make chun li top tier. chun is a god in this game. karas takes damage like a bitch, and i wouldnt consider him top tier just because of that. if he took damage on average like the rest of the cast, then yes, he stands alone for that spot, but because one fucking slip up can lead to him bleeding from his stupid little beak, i wouldnt make him top tier, but definitely high, because of his good offense, and easy infinite.
its gonna be nice to see the more shit people end up doing with karas in the future, and or find ways to get around his shit and hurt him.
morrigan is fucking low tier. her dash sucks ass, and is only unique in the way she can cancel it. yes, maybe with days of practice, you can find a way to be semi efficient with her trash ass dash, but its a waste of your time. her infinite is simple to do though. her only super thats worth a damn is her level 3, which doesnt put the player in a good position. all other supers either need some type of assist setup, and i dont know if her missile super has a setup yet. have not kept up with her shit.
morrigan has a good rush down of sorts when she is in, and her launcher has nice range, but her dash makes her some what ineffective to me, and is her main downfall. if it was not for that, i would say she was a solid mid, even with her only having one super she can combo off of, which is a level 3.
doronjo is good, and once people start taking time to master spamming the shit out of her assist, then she will be a big problem in my opinion. her jump in heavy is good shit. she has an infinite on tekkaman, and another general infinite using her assist in the corner. i like doronjo.
jun is solid, and has good mind games she can perform in the corner for those wanting to hold d/b all day. she is fast as shit. all her jump ins are good. all her supers combo from her normals, and her level 3 combos on the ground and in the air. she has a possible infinite that we have yet to really test, and appears to be a bit technical. she plays keep away real good with her heavy yo yo, and will catch bammas trying to be slick and jump, or spam assist from mid to full screen.
jun, can play solid mind games with her yo yo’s, and her light yo yo has decent recovery. her only specials that are truly worthwhile though, are her yo yo’s, and her reverse d/p dive in kick move. the yo yo to flip kick thing can be used for corner pressure, and can be comboed off of without baroque, and her other move she does in the air, is really only solid for air combos, but may be able to be used for corner pressure too, and she can cancel that into her supers.
jun is pretty solid really. people should keep her in their thoughts, because i can see a expert jun posing plenty of problems. i still play with her, and i think she is good.
alex is right where he needs to be. the hype of his damage all goes away when you realize you cant do shit without taking risk, and dont have to many solid tools to compete with even an average characters rush down. let alone the shit ryu, chun, karas, etc… can do to you.
rock is probably a solid mid, judging from my little time of playing him, and observing him in vids.
if ken is upper tier, than i would put jun there. considering the fact that juns assist is okay, kens assist is trash. kens launcher has shit ass range also. he does have possible teleport shennanigans, but we have yet to see a good strategy against that. ken does healthy damage though. his level 3 needs a solid assist setup to my knowledge, and is not as easily comboable as juns supers.
yeah, if ken is upper tier, than so is jun. kens assist sucks, he needs a decent assist to combo his level 3, and his launcher has shit range, his jump in medium and fierce are kinda sucky. the fierce jump in with ken is good, but can wiff, and doesnt have the range and beastlieness of other characters jump in. thats ken, just to name a few off the top of my head.
ken in comparison to jun though. juns assist isnt god like, but is better, she doesnt need an assist to combo any of her supers, ALL her jump ins are good, and her launcher doesnt have massive range, but has better range then ken. so either ken is mid tier, or jun is also upper tier. i wont be bold enough to say she is upper, but i wouldnt put it pass her, coming from someone that plays her.
casshern is solid. dogs still come out even if your hit. level 3 needs a good assist though. level 1 supers do good damage, and are easily comboable. his armor knee is good shit to deal with rush downs. he does good damage, and has decent defense. his jump ins are kinda weak though, but you can work with the light and heavy versions, they arent that bad, im just comparing them to other characters. i would consider him upper mid. he has the ability to handle himself on his own pretty well, and his assist is good, but not good to combo with really.
fuck yatterman. bias opinion
batsu is solid. his launcher has shitty range, but he has an easy infinite in the corner, good damage, good combos involving his super, his flame kicks punish people holding d/b all day, and you can baroque it for full combo to launcher to super, he has decent defense, his jump in light and medium are very good, and if you jump in with medium that gets blocked, you can iad into jump in heavy, and can possibly cross people up for a nice combo. batsu is upper mid for sure, and his assist is decent.
polymar is a pain in the ass. his assist is stupid. i dont have much else to say, because im done thinking. when people start finding holes in karas offense that they might be able to exploit, he will drop quick, because he has such horrible defense. thats all presuming he has some terrible hole to exploit. right now, his offense alone keeps him up there, but his d is what does not make him top tier. either upper, or high mid. i cant emphasize enough how fast this dude can die
ugh, no one should play giants. they should not have even been in the game. i will skip all giant vids, and i would walk away from all giant matches. boring trash is what giants are. i dont care what they have. i just cant get with it. there has been no characters like them in any vs series, and they fucking suck
