    Were you the DJ? Sorry about not playing more, I was trying to get more matches against a high ranked V.Ken at the time.

    That was me! I used to go by the name littlecowpower on HD Remix and played Blanka exclusively, when he wasn't borderline garbage. Now I stick to Evil Ryu and only switch to Dee Jay or Blanka against the players I respect most.

    I've mained Zangief and Guile in past versions of SFII as well... Nothing but love for this strange game.

    How did you do against Violent Ken?

    I think I remember you on HDR. I was playing against MichaelLee. I'd say he has the most impressive V.Ken I've run up against so far. I think this might be his first time with SF2 because he lacks a few basics but he has V.Ken's skill plays down. Very adept at using the dash on wakeup to set up a 50/50 jab srk (that's completely safe on block). We probably played about 30 times yesterday and I think I beat him at least 20-10 but the way the game deals PP out I think I barely made change when it was all said and done lol.

    MichaelLee is alright, but his attitude sucks (you can just tell) and he runs after one win. I sent a friend request to him with my name changed to an insult, and he actually added me lol. I'll see if he actually sticks around for matches now.

    Btw I am SSj4_Ryuk on USF4, mind adding me on Switch? I would love to play a good Dj.

    I know you, this is Cellus. We've been sparring here and there recently.

    I know him too. :'(

    Awesome! I hope we get to fight again.

    Shin Akuma isn't even playable online because most if not all, ban him online, and nobody really picks normal Akuma because normal one air fireball Akuma is overrated...

    What's wrong with Claw jumping on the fence...

    I really don't get you. Vega jumping on his fence destroys his walldive game. Vega gets heavily penalized if he lands on his own stage. That's obviously bad. Also no one in their right mind would advocate allowing Shin Akuma being allowed in anything other than silly casuals. His fucking HP fireball does 50% damage. Jesus.

    I would think that's exactly why he doesn't see an issue with it - it's not OP, it's a handicap. If someone wants to gimp their own character, then let them.

    No Vega player is ever picking that level on purpose, people usually pick it as a nerf to force a ground game.

    For sure. It makes perfect sense that a Vega player should be allowed to veto that stage pick if they want to.
    If they actually want to go all Saikyo mode and deal with the nerfed wall climb, I think that's okay too.

    Dunno if he even posts here but on my last game with Branch (#1 ranked chun) my switch disconnected from online right at the end of our last game. I know it looked bad but it was definitely not on purpose lol this console is whack with its connections.

    Just bought this the other day and been having fun with this silly game somewhat, the online is kinda horrible but I'd rather play this than SFV. The online kinda reminds me of playing cvs2 and 3s back in the day on OG Xbox.

    I'm pretty sure the disconnect is not the console's fault. Granted, I bought an ethernet adapter but I played a ton of Pokken this weekend and had no disconnects and an overall better experience than Ultra. Capcom just phoned it in on the netcode. That makes me sad because I really love this game.

    I see a lot of the same people over and over and generally matches are of poor quality. I've only owned the game for less than a week though.

    If you like fighting laggy V.Ken and Akuma it's the business. Seriously, that's like 80% of my fights dodging air plasma and guessing which side ken may want to dash to next. That's after determining weather or not its an SRK spammer.

    We have very different experiences, it seems. I face a fairly diverse character selection. I've seen far more Akumas than V.Kens and both outrank E. Ryu. The number of jab SRK spamming V.Kens is also fairly low for me. I've seen a few and it's frustrating because Fei Long cannot easily punish that behavior as far as I can tell. I see a fair amount of Guils, Chun, Balrog and Ryu players.

    Most players will try to counter pick against you in ranked matches, and Violent Ken and Akuma are great characters to use against Gief. I think with Fei Long there aren't many people who know how to play him correctly, let alone know who to use against a good Fei Long. This is why it's handy to practice a handful of characters so you can influence who will be used against you.

    Fei's tricky, sometimes it feels like I need to stay darn near full screen away to react well, especially when I use Blanka

    Good games x64. I think our connection is just bad enough to make Ken and V.Ken broken as hell, full retard SRK became a valid strategy. What's your opinion of the character after putting in the time? I only know him from the opponent side. I was Goldie btw

    I held up on getting an offical Nintendo Pro Controller because of the reports on crappy D-pad so I am giving this controller a go instead; it is set to release on December.

    SF30 Pro by 8bit do.

    Edit: I am on mobile atm and suck at uploading images

    Edit2: Some pictures of the Super Famicom inspired design. in the Amazon.com link I provided there is also a SNES inspired design (Just change the "edition" on the right of the screen).

    If I was serious about beating Fei Long I would probably pick Evil Ryu. A lot of people also pick Fei Long against my Cammy which sounds great on paper but it isn't a 3-7 matchup if you don't know how what makes Fei Long so good in the first place.

    Outside of normal health, nothing. V.Ken has everything O.Ken has otherwise, only better. Even without the command dash V.Ken is arguably better.

    Speaking of Violent Ken, has anyone played SVCRival, a.k.a. the number #1 Violent Ken in the world? He has more than 22800BP right now which is much higher than anyone else, all other Violent Kens included. I'd love to know if somebody finally broke the character.

    I've fought him a few times. He likes to cover his dash with plasma and come in for a throw, that 50/50 dash throw routine is tricky. Once you start reacting to that, the srks start rolling. Annoying as shit

    This is why I feel like Ryu is the best counterpick for Violent Ken. His superior projectile game and life advantage forces V. ken to take more risks. I'm guessing characters like E. Honda or Claw in Spain can't do anything about this strategy though.

    It's tricky with Vega since he has to react and try to stay aggressive while V.Ken can pretty much just do whatever, plus Vega's weak to tick throws. I had more success with Blanka, forces V.Ken to play lame.

    edit: He will also only play V.Ken once so that cuts down on learning his patterns.

    It's probably Switch exclusive but if other consoles/PC gets a port I hope Capcom fixes the bugs and tunes down the damage ratio.
    Lobbies and broken chars ban option would be great :)
