Dictator above the Shotos and Guile?
I thought Dic's lack of a definitive anti-air would have knocked him lower.
Another thing to remember in SF2 is that it's mostly based on matchups, not tiers. You can be good with pretty much any character.
Sim is quite a beast but at the same time its not like he's a total dominant over the likes of ryu, claw, and boxer either.

Blankas throw range is good but useless if he gets zoned in by Fireballs. True he can slide underneath but most would know this ahead of time and have a plan b set up like a tiger knee or a short hurricane kick into a throw. At least Cams jab spinning knuckle can pass through them and her flying frankensteiner can leap over them.
Blankas jump speed is also impressive but could be just as easily countered by an equally as quick canon spike or dragon punch.
Plus, on the note of blanka, his rolling attacks arent the hardest thing to counter when blocked. If bison blocks a rolling attack, he can psycho crush it, ryu, DJ, and sim can fireball it, boxer and claw can get a free fierce punch in.
Blankas ground game does have great priority with good damage as well but cammys ability to move in and out of hit range while sticking out standing fierce punches and roundhouse kicks, or crouching forward kicks or strong punches (which can lead into a canon spike or super) give her a decent edge
And she does lack a good chip game but she has a better cross up game that makes up for it.
I think it can be fairly agreed that while cammy is clearly not top tier, she certainly will have a better chance (50% imo) against ryu, (60%) agaist sim than blanka, hawk or gief would have, although all four would struggle against boxer but cammy would have a 50% chance against claw whereas blanka, hawk, and Gief would have a much harder time. And against Chun, cammy'd have a very slight advantage against her than Blanka, Gief or hawk, as those three woudl just outright struggle and just wouldn't be able to hold up as well. And needless to say, in a head to head match (again imo) Cammy would have at least a 60% chance agaisnt blanka, gief, and hawk. And while i admit you don't see too many cammy players in too many Super Turbo tourneys (except of course james chen) you sure as hell don't see too many hawk, blanka, or gief players either unelss you're in japan.

Cammy owns up T.Hawk almost for free without even needing to compare it to other people fighting T.Hawk. This fight is easily 9/1 in favor of Cammy IMO. Probably one of the worst match-ups in the game.

I read this on one of NKI's threads in which he was translating what Daigo said. According to Daigo:
Top: Sim and Chun
I'm not sure but I think you'd have to put O. Sagat in there somewhere too.

Kurahashi said there was one player who used N.Sagat, who, if he decided to switch to O.Sagat, would wipe the floor with everyone.

I always considered Boxer to be higher than O. Sagat

Isn't Boxer favored in that matchup?
What Daigo does to Choi from 4:10 till the end is the textbook definition of rape.

I would LOVE to play boxer like that, but I don't think I have the patience.
Se7in, post: 1331057 wrote:
Patience isn't the majority of playing boxer. There's tons of ways to close that distance with mind games, TAP/Headbutt through FB'sm etc.
The main part of playing with Boxer is rushdown and not letting an opponent get a chance to strike back. It's mainly lockdown.

I was talking mainly about getting TAP'ing incorporated into my gameplay, that's where my paintence falls through. I've heard of the method that Graham uses, but it seems extremely awkward to me.

Curious why you like O.Guile over N.Guile. I know O.Guile is better in a few specific matches, but I think I like N.Guile better over all.

Back to the topic, what advantages does Dictator have over Sim, since I saw Dic over Sim in one of the tier lists?
Dic' can stuff 'Sim's far drills with FP, but that's about all I've seen.
Up close, he still gets drilled to death.

Does anybody know where I can find a match-up chart? I think that would be even more helpful than tier lists.
