    In SF4 I used to style with low tatsu fadc then wondered what could I do with it in SFV. Since tatsu is down back and critical art is down foward I tought it wasnt possible but I had to try it and it worked!

    Is for styling tho but totally doable.

    Btw : J. Hp, S. Hp x low tatsu, VT, H. Srk x critical art looks awesome.

    Everything you said went completely over my head because of bearded Ken video.

    This video made playing Ken look really fun.

    He actually fights like a point/sport Karate guy in this. Stays at range then gets in, tags his opponent and gets out. If he gets a knock-down he can continue with solid pressure and mixups.

    I haven't played the betas but must admit i was starting to disregard Ken a little based on hearsay.

    My interest has been officially piqued.

    I still can't get over the fact Ken must be the ugliest and worst created model they used in that video. You can clearly see the polygons, his skin tone looks fucked, his face just makes him look like a complete monster, ..... Like seriously he looks better in game if only by a bit.

    I tought I was the only one that noticed. He looks like a SF ex model in the first shot of the video.

    Gotta say, for some reason I want to play Ken. Guess I just want to play the underdog, and that's what he seems like right now. It feels like a good way to learn the game, having to work hard by playing the underdog.

    The entire thing looks pretty ugly IMO, I hate the style. Compare it to SF4's CGI trailers and I think it pales in comparison. Subjective though so meh.

    K E N A R M Y!

    I've actually been trying to talk some friends into playing him, I feel like a charity service looking for handouts..everyone thinks he's garbage lmao. I get that mentality though, you actually have to actively approach every opponent with some semblance of a proper thought process otherwise you'll get bodied, no easy mode tricks or Birdie esque bullshit.

    I am playing him no matter what, honestly I am not at a level where character strenght really matters. People, and me included, do too many mistakes for it to really matter.

    I just really wish they would remake his face. He looks like a creep especially in the select screen.

    Lots of people getting the game early, and judging by streams, all characters seem identical to beta 4. Of course I'm guessing on the 16th a day 1 patch will go live. Here's to hoping Ken sees some slight buffs, probably wishful thinking :|

    dunno how he does that 3hits MP DP while Vtrigger is on? (MP DP was 2 hits in beta4). Did they change that or what?

    Unfortunately, we won't be seeing balance changes on that day 1 patch.

    To further add to that we don't currently know all of the beta 4 > release changes, and the supposed "Day One" patch has already been applied to my knowledge. It isn't identical to beta 4 I hope. I'd like to think some things have changed, just not all.

    And at that moment, within the Capcom HQ....

    Ken: Haha! I can't wait to get fired up, when does the final version drop Ono-san??

    Ono: ......boys, seize him.

    Capcom employees seize ya boy, breaking his legs and leaving him wheelchair bound, they spit on him as they prepare to throw him from upper levels of the building

    Ken: *Coughing up blood* Ono-san....why?! Mike..Peter..let go of me!

    Ono: 1, 2, 3 SHORYUKEN. EVERYONE READY???

    Ken: ONO-SAN, NO STOP THIS YOU'RE INSANE! I'LL DO WHATEVER YOU SAY!

    Ono: 3....2....1 SHORRRRYYYUUUUKEEEEEEN!

    *Screams of terror echoed through the Capcom HQ...*

    Legends say Ken wasn't heard from again until v2017...some say a mere few still attempt to play the character, Momochi even dropped him for Chun-Li like everyone was expecting, fuck you Momo...

    TLDR; Yeah sure I'll bet that.

    True story.
    With all the hope combined... there can be a chance in SFV that Ken can, one day, walk again. #TeamWheelchair

    Wow that's unfortunate if so.
    Welcome to the internet. God help you if you have an opinion.

    I should start keeping written letters in sealed envelopes when I go to tournaments. If i get bodied, I give them one, and when they open it up it says "fuk u"

    It's Max, I don't really find his first impressions noteworthy or relevant when it comes to new FGs. I'll sit around and wait for his frame data to arrive.

    And Chun-Li was supposedly weak in beta one even though it was her strongest version.

    I'm not on the Ken hate train, I think he's good. B Tier, not pushing A Tier IMO.

    Hey Guy, I played Ken offline a lot those last days (Capcom gave us a copy). And against really strong players known in french such Valmaster and Evans.
    So I had to find how to use Ken properly to win And I understood Ken is a looot different from Ryu, but people are playing him like if they were the same. Or like in USFIV.

    As soon as I can, i'll stream that.

    More over, I'm one of the french Guests to show off SFV to France this week-end and I'll be the player showing Ken and Vega. If you want to watch, it'll be tomorrow 15h-21h (GMT+1).

    Just saying that in case you are interested to see more Ken gameplay.

    Someone above said he can do anti-air MP SRK in VT into EX SRK again. Might of reverted some hitbox nerfs on EX SRK.

    Man even if I'm wrong and Ken turns out to be like A tier in this game I'm still sad because I didn't find Ken all that fun in beta 3 and 4. I hate it because I use Ken in every game he's in. This would be my first time not maining him. Lol

    does LP SRK > EX SRK work midscreen again?

    Combo vid on front page shows midscreen TC->LP SRK->EX SRK so looking like we have combo's again BOYZ.



    He also has LP SRK -> FP SRK in the corner again. Seems like we are going to get a slightly better version of beta 4 Ken. If there is a hitbox or frame upgrade we might have a solid character. Least it is looking like his v-trigger is scary again.

    Doubtful, it has been fairly crap outside its use for CC's and cr. FP anti-airs since the beginning. Highly doubtful they are suddenly going to give that up and do something fancy with it.

    Yo does Ken have his old combo's back? I'm watching a Ryu do some beta 2 things right now and I'm kinda hype.

    Why don't they use the st.hk combos after V-trigger activation in the videos? I have been playing in a beta 3 build cracked beta since beta 4 ended and so I don't have any fancy stuff with the mk.tatsu.

    It's better now to use mk.tatsu? Didn't try it during beta 4 because lack of time.
