    The next character will apparently be playable in the next beta if I'm reading this correctly.
    Yeah, too bad the beta isn't available for PS4... My crappy laptop cannot run this game, hence why I have a PS4.

    Has nothing to do with specs, man. Just Capcom being lazy.

    At this point, they should just keep quiet and let everything drop as a surprise. Seems like Capcom and DCEU is run by the same people.

    Nah, Chun Li isn't built like Olive Oil and Rashid is a happy guy with a sense of humor. So DCEU can't be involved.

    Also, closely tied to the new CFN are the new Season 2 Balance Updates and the next Season 2 DLC Character. For the full list of balance changes, check out our previous blogpost here. These additional balance changes and the next Season 2 DLC character were originally planned to launch at the end of April. Since both of these were developed under the new CFN infrastructure, they have to release alongside the new CFN when it is ready.

    More details and the exact timing of the next CFN Beta Test will be announced in the coming weeks. Thank you all once again for helping us make the new CFN the best it can be.

    "the next CFN Beta Test will be announced in the coming weeks"

    Ahahahaha have fun with this caplol defenders =)

    Best part is pretending the #2 new char must wait the CFN update because reasons =)

    I will like they at least ADD new things to the 2.1 patch and fix some (like Ryu new crHP having actual benefits or Gief counter being totally different)... but i think they will not

    Tbh while they absolutely suck, i don't care much about the delay, i paid for 6 characters+costumes throught some months (until september i guess) and i will get them

    I guess it help that i lost interest in #2 as soon Byron becomed the first candidate, now i'm only vaguely interested in the possibility of Abigail (as a "Giant" char move things in cast dynamic) and the possibly cool #5
    RIP #2, you was the chosen one

    Capcom & Consumers set out for a drive across North America; "How long is it across North Amerca?", the kids asked - "Oh, just a few hours, give or take, and we'll make lots of fun stops along the way" the parents said.

    All along the way, the kids kept asking "Are we there yet?", and exhausted from their bickering and from the drive itself, they had no other choice but to respond with "Soon, children - what say we stop for ice-cream first?", and the children were happy, until their patience ran out again.

    As usual theyr fault being both not good enough to follow theyr own announced plan AND being so out of touch marketing wise

    More excuse for peoples that don't even play/own the game to make fun of them and spread negative shit, while the game will benefit from the opposite

    SFV capcom being SFV capcom as usual

    I have a feeling Capcom won't reveal the details for the new character until they reveal the details for the upcoming beta, which is to be revealed "in the coming weeks".

    They still have some other content they say they're releasing this month and I have a feeling we'll hear about that today.

    I doubt it'll be anything substantial, but I'd love to be wrong.

    It's kind of annoying how each of these "sets" only ever has costumes for, like, 3 or 4 characters, but one of those characters is always Chun Li.

    She's going to have like twice as many costumes as any other character.

    I do somewhat understand their approach. With SFIV costumes came out and there were themes. What resulted was people complained about not wanting or needing costumes for each character. Additionally a lot of the costumes were very very uninspired. So with SFxT they allowed you to buy costumes out of packs. While this probably pleased consumers, it meant not many were buying the full set and people were just picking up a $2 costume here or there.

    This time around they arent marrying themselves to creating a costume for each character for each set and are creating a tiered costume pricing. This has a couple of benefits for them.
    1. Less resources used now translates to more revenue.
    2. Costumes come out more frequently and more attention is giving to each
    3. A lot less garbage costumes are being made just to make sure every character had one for each theme.
    4. They can put more focus on characters that move more product (My guess is that Chun Li is a big earner)

    I read that too and I hope you're right, but they're either going to announce the character and say "stay tuned for more information into when we're starting the beta", or they'll have one big announcement and say "check out this new character and you'll be able to play them on May 12th (for example) when we start the beta".

    I hope it's the first scenario, but I wouldn't be surprised if it becomes the latter.

    At least Alex got an alt that isn't garbage now even though he now looks like he's gonna crash a MILF party and do some Magic Mike shit.

    Resident Evil 5..... since RE5 I've been holding on to hope that things would get better regarding my relationship with this company and I'm disappointed everytime. Sure we've had some ups but the downs... the downs depress me.

    Every year, I keep saying I'm done supporting capcom but I keep coming back. Is... is this battered wife syndrome?

    Yep, that's how it is. Sadly I bought the pass and honestly, I regret it. Had I not purchased it by now, I know for certain I'd pass on it. Scary part too I'd that I'm a hardcore follower too do gauging my own excitement makes me doubt whether casuals have any interest whatsoever. I wonder if the game will really be supported for at least 5 years like Ono said it would. With this sort of PR I dont see that being too promising

    Most of the other fighting games are so poverty that it doesn't even have enough competition to worry about failing. If we knew how much money they were making on costume and character DLC we probably wouldn't be worried about it.

While this probably pleased consumers, it meant not many were buying the full set and people were just picking up a $2 costume here or there.

    This time around they arent marrying themselves to creating a costume for each character for each set and are creating a tiered costume pricing. This has a couple of benefits for them.
    1. Less resources used now translates to more revenue.
    2. Costumes come out more frequently and more attention is giving to each
    3. A lot less garbage costumes are being made just to make sure every character had one for each theme.
    4. They can put more focus on characters that move more product (My guess is that Chun Li is a big earner)

    Peoples complained because fuck peoples

    For most part SF4 at start got solid designed capcom alts (for all)

    Basically start design + next 3 were all kinda good and fitting

    Then starting with Summer Trash iirc they commissioned (to udon? idk) shit, and quality/design/color... art as a whole fallen to crap, and following waves followed the trend, leaving at the end a bad taste

    But if they stopped before "Summer Pack" SF4 whole design machine was solid and respectable, still capcom style

    SFV kinda started already with the disease, example some costumes (by Kiki i guess, but i can be wrong) don't feel SF/Capcom at all, because the artist does'nt feel SF/Capcom

    Some other stuff start good (Bengus doing Alex concept) then get commissioned to god know who (external?) and strange ugly craps happen


    As for current situation theyr approach is simple

    Protagonist = alts
    Waifu = alts
    Random char = be lucky to end in some strange pick, like Gief in Xmas pack

    Chun is Waifu + 0.5 protagonist (as the most famous SF vagina, see redbull mini pack) = lot of alts

    They invest/create what they expect it will return in form of money, so Ryu (protagonist), all tits (waifus) and they're experiment with Alex (SF3 protagonist)

    They don't think many will buy Dhalsim alt, so they don't bother do one
    It's not about do alternative character designs, is just fanservice

    Strange they did'nt gave Ken more alts, outside the standard ones he just got xmas weird one, but he's pretty popular char and still is missing a decent alt

    Theyr lack of variety or given fucks about give a more uniform, not-DoA product, is the mirror of peoples tastes... just go watch the mods 7/8 out 10 are the girls, most of times for #lonelyhand #bigtitscammy #barefoot theme

    You mirror trash you get trash

    Tbh i miss SF4 model, it forced the audience being a bit less ignorant and the designers to work on designs with a more legit process... well, as long the good part lasted


    PS: it's not just people's fault, another part that is affecting SFV art is the awkward "mixed" marketing that offer the worst of western and jap worlds lol

    Yep, that's how it is. Sadly I bought the pass and honestly, I regret it. Had I not purchased it by now, I know for certain I'd pass on it. Scary part too I'd that I'm a hardcore follower too do gauging my own excitement makes me doubt whether casuals have any interest whatsoever. I wonder if the game will really be supported for at least 5 years like Ono said it would. With this sort of PR I dont see that being too promising

    Most of the other fighting games are so poverty that it doesn't even have enough competition to worry about failing. If we knew how much money they were making on costume and character DLC we probably wouldn't be worried about it.


    Already reports of whale top players spending 100s of dollars in DLC for the game

    There's no escape.... is there ;_;

    At least Alex got an alt that isn't garbage now even though he now looks like he's gonna crash a MILF party and do some Magic Mike shit.

    To be fair waiting SF3 one, Alex got a decent alt.. the premium one isn't bad

    I love how Capcom has kept us on the hook for Alex's original costume for months and then they drop this other Alex costume on us. While not hideous, it does feel like a slap in the face for those of us that were waiting.
    Plus, as annoying as it is for most of us, I can only imagine that there are enough players out there buying this costume DLC stuff that for the amount of effort Capcom makes they're cashing in nicely.
    Ugghh!

    Also, this next DLC character feels like the first DLC character that we have no clue about whatsoever. The fact that they keep us on the hook waiting and waiting only worries me more and more that the hype is going to make the eventual reveal very, very anticlimactic.

    "The April update, including tangible CFN improvements and the mysterious new character, has been delayed until May. On the good side, you get a stage (we announced way back), some school costumes (more Ryu/Chun alts woo), and work costumes (another Chun alt in the same update WOOOOO)."

    Capcom putting satire out of business one disappointment at a time.

    Even ignoring the delay, it's disappointing that the choice of content content seems to no longer care for building into the identity SFV as a numbered entry and how it should look or feel in comparison to the others.

    It looks like the creative team or direction already considers SFV to be a finished job, called it a day and have indulged into the cheesy and generic themes like School or Work that don't expand the ambience or its characters' other sides or into the route of least effort with the appealing to SF2 nostalgia, which in the case of Bison stage it even goes against what they have evolved the character into across the years and games. Ideally, further content could go further into the vibe of characters like Necalli, or SFV Nash or the Bustling Side Street stage before NPCs went in but even some goofiness on theme would be preferable.

    The more to suspect that the new characters have little to offer to the main story except stuff that already passed and maybe a vague lead to something they don't even know for now. It's hard to imagine how they could be presenting something awesome like a full Illuminati gang with huge story implications while also bringing down the momentum with the 4th and 5th SF2 stages and the Zombie and Disco Fever sets of costumes.

    Chun li new alt are beautiful but all that Chun li needed was her SF2 ending alts because it would make a lot of sense for flashbacks and this timeline story is in between SF2 and SF3. That the same with the rest of the cast either from their SF2, SF3 or SFA counterparts.
