I'm not saying blanka is cheap, but every 4 or 5 matches i get msg's from ppl sayin how much of a scrub i am for using the cheapest character in the game but when i ask why he's cheap they ignore me, why do ppl think this? is it because he's anti fireball? thats not much of an excuse to call someone cheap, if thats the reason don't spam fireballs right? lol
It really bugs me when ppl say he's cheap considering he's been right around the middle of damned near every tier list i've ever seen. I don't see how people can say he's cheap and heres my reasons why he's not.
1. No Light Chains or any chain combos for that matter (very annoying)
2. All his specials are extremely punishable (also very annoying)
3. Pretty much all his combos are 1 frame links
4. No useable way to combo or juggle into his ultra's
5. No specials are fast enough to be reliable wake up moves.
Sure he does have some huge perks like command dash, insane mix up, best cross up in the game imo and his beast slide (which is also very punishable), but these things don't out rank the downfalls in my mind so what do you guys think? Why or Why not is blanka cheap? Kinda excited to hear what people have to say about this.
