I don’t see how it was sexism either, I ran Division 1 track and field, I saw the women’s basketball, tennis, soccer, and other teams all the time. i know what athletic women can do. All I said basically was that we can’t look at real life as a pure basis on the stats of female fighters in a video game. Afterall, at the highest levels, let say olympic/ pro sports level, no woman is going to be stronger, faster or quicker than the strongest, fastest and quickest man. And if you look at fighting, whether boxing, wrestling, or MMA stuff, no women is going to compete with a man. At an amateur level, you can find kung fu ladies beating men, but not at the highest level.
So, it shouldn’t be automatic that a woman have low health. Like the guy said, Tronne Bonne doesn’t have low health. But in Street Fighter, up until they switched Makoto to 1000 health, it looks like High Health went to Men and not just any man, but those who Physically look Big like Rufus, Balrog, Zangief, Honda, Sagat and So Forth. That thinking led to overpowered Sagat and Rufus also getting tremendous amount of health to go along with their other advantages.
In the end, I made it quite clear, there were much more effective ways to make someone good, so as long as it result in a balanced game, I’m cool with it. So, if Capcom want to play the female with low health thing, then make sure their other stuff makes up for it and result in a balance fighter. If you got Makoto for example in Super, who had like nothing going for her AND she had just 950 health, you better believe people made some noise about it.
Anways, Wingman, I guess so, after all I think 13 characters have 1000 health, by far the most. The average goes down, because we have just two notches above “NORMAL” and that is 1050 and 1100, but we have 4 notches below, which are 950, 900, 850, and 800. We have just 9 guys above 1000 health, and 17 guys below 1000 health.
