Favourite DLC Characters So Far?

My apologies if this has been asked before - I searched for a similar thread, but I couldn't find one...

I just placed an order for SFV (should be here on Monday), and I'm primarily going to use my FM to buy new characters. I'll spend real cash if I have to, but it's a last resort. I realize it's going to be quite the grind to earn enough FM to buy all 8 DLC Characters that have been released so far, so I'll have to choose wisely.

I'd like to poll the community, who are your favourite DLC characters so far? Also, who have been your least favourite DLC characters? Why?

Just to recap - the DLC characters to date (March 17th, 2017 - Happy St Patrick's Day!):
- Akuma
- Alex
- Balrog
- Guile
- Ibuki
- Juri
- Kolin
- Urien

Thanks in advance!

    1. Alex
    2. The rest except Balrog
    3. Balrog

    I dig Balrog's design and place in SFV, but he's just not my cup of tea :tup:

    1- Urien, by far my fav
    2- Kolin, probably the SF female char i have more fun use
    3- Rog, don't use him but boxing is a classic
    4- Juri, don't use her but taekwondo is a classic
    5- Guile, don't use him but he's fucking Guile


    Alex, can't get over how crap he look lol

    I designed SFV Ken, your argument is invalid.

    Honestly though, the cast of characters in SFV til now has been nothing short of stellar. 90% of the time the reimaginations and adaptations have been perfect. I have never loved a cast of characters in a fighting game as much as this cast. Kudos to Capcom for the effort and thoughtfulness put into this.

    Alex, Kolin and Juri.

    Balrog was fun in S1 but S2 I feel like he got a little overplayed and I hate running into mirrors online constantly. Urien is very interesting but I don't like him in actual games because you don't use half of his interesting stuff anyway.

    Everyone else I've barely played.

    It's really hard to recommend without knowing what type of player you are and or if you're looking for strong characters. I'll list my favourites though....

    For me, Juri and Kolin have been the most fun to play.

    Don't play any of them anymore, but I've had an Ibuki phase, Urien phase and an Alex phase. Only really got good with Ibuki but I loved playing Rashid so much that I dedicated my whole attention to getting as good as possible w/ him. Juri's pretty fun, but I didn't dare take her online.
    But at least I have the memory

    Guile, Balrog, Alex, Urien. I would also like Akuma if it weren't for his sunflower head.

    I honestly like most of them.

    1. Juri
    2. Ibuki
    3. Alex
    4. Kolin
    5. Urien
    6. Balrog
    7. Guile

    I think that the top four on my list are fun to play and I tend to like Balrog and Guile too, however those last three have been getting so overplayed recently whenever I go online that I'm starting to get sick of seeing them.
    SFV: Juri/Alex/Akuma
    KOF: Bring back Elisabeth
    Tekken: Kazuya/Xiaoyu

    I dig footsie/poking characters, so I have a soft spot for Alex. Kolin is cool too, just for how she can counter the current meta of buttons all day erry day.
