More random questions on CCs:
1.) Does invincibility play any role in seting up a CC? I've tried blowing through fireballs with it and have just ended up getting hit as I ran through it. Is it worth the effort?
2.) Did anyone check out NKI volume 6? That is some crazy shit. Is that what the tournament CCs look like?
3.) If you can't block in reaction to a CC, can you CC in reaction to a CC? It seems like its possible, but I've not tried it yet.

I think the tier ranking in this game changes for the upgraded Zero 2 Alpha version. Mainly, Chun-Li is slightly weakened (can't cancel from FK) and the abused Zero/Alpha counter now uses 1.5 levels (i.e. half of max) which I think is a lot better.
There has been no mention of Sodom, who I think is a very highly rated character in this game. His whiff k->720k is the most powerful anti-air in the game (albeit only over certain distances) and he clearly owns Zangief because of it. Vs. Ken's zero-counter, he can 720k back even though he gets HIT by the counter (must be on the ground of course). He ticks very well and his c.SP and c.FP has very good range and priority. His counter has very long range and his slide is excellent as well.
Personally, I like Guy, but he's rather weak when playing against turtlers. Relies on counter-attacks, which means the opponent has to attack in the first place.

I challenge ANY Sodom to try to own my Gief in A2 "because of" anti-air 720.
Can't be done. Gief wins the match, hands down.

Somes alpha 2 questions
1. How do you roll backwards when doing the air recovery thing? I've done it a couple of times but cant work out how.
Um Are you sure you are talking about A2 ? no air revovery in A2 only A3. Please don't mix up a great game like A2 with A3 garbage.
2. How does the invincibilty work on CC's. Are the invicibility frames immediately after you activate? Because a lot of the time I see a sweep coming out, activate and get hit out of the CC instantly. But If I activate earlier and there just in the first few frames of the sweep it goes straight through me and they eat a combo.
If you are anyone but evil ryu (his is full screen) you should be blowing out opponents normal moves when they are out on the screen causing you to be able to go into a CC ,Again seems like you might be talking about A3 VC's where they don't blow out moves
3. How does the damage work in a CC? Its seems that if you start with a sweep it does alot more damge then if you just start with a special. Why is this?
If you aren't getting good damage in a CC u again must be talking about A3. A2 CC's consist mostly of CC,Sweep,juggle with specials.
4. From talk in here it seems that Chun-Li is No. 1 but I have the videos from B3 and only a few people use her. Why is it so?
Chun isn't paticularly #1 but she is top tier meaning one of the top 4 or 5 characters in the game. Ryu,Ken,Chun,Rose are usually considered the top 4 in the game.
Thanks for any help.

Traditionally, the top tier is known as "The (Big) Four" -
Most people put Zangief in the second tier, but other than him it's debateable.
Dan is considered 2nd worst in the game, better than only Birdie. I however am willing to prove everyone wrong about that. I think Dhalsim is pretty shitty in A2, and Dan is somewhere closer to mid-tier.
