For Zangief, I feel like the Gief player has to be better than anyone playing a character with any decent zoning or keep out tools in order to get in. That's why he is low tier, and should be, imo. If both players are truly equal in skill and matchup knowledge, it's going to be a really tough match for the Gief player.
For Ken, I think he's really good. B+ tier maybe. Good zoning, great oki tools, and the knee throw loop is still very nice. His damage and dizzy potential is also awesome for one wrong guess. The rapid fire Shoryukens tactic works offline too, if you don't throw out more than 2 in a row. It's not abusable (like it is online), but it's a quick move that recovers very deceptively fast, and can catch many people off guard. Either way, it's just one tool in his well rounded arsenal, and not a deal breaker if it's not there.
^^ Yeah, shoulda mentioned I play mostly online. You make good points but as carn114 said, Ken is still good offline.
How do you program Guile's super properly in TRUST? I've been using this program to some effectiveness recently testing other setups, but I just cannot get the Super to come out.
TRUST is awesome, btw thanks!
