So, let me preface this by saying I am a huge fan of CVS2. Unfortunately I never played it during its prime, was more stuck on ST. There is one issue I have with the game, looking for insight as to whether I'm right or wrong. It seems like, despite all the character variety, many of the matches look very similar to me. As in, all the matches I see end up with characters using normals at footsie range for a majority of their damage.
I see a lot of Sagat being played, for example. All the Sagats I see happen to use Sagat as more of a poking/cr. fierce character as opposed to the zoner he's supposed to be. In fact, when I think about it I've never seen a Sagat engage in a fireball war in this game. What am I missing? Love the flow and feel of the game, just noticed that it doesn't seem to encourage different game-plans except poking and counter-poking.
Anyway, looking for insight!
