Ohh I know about the Old versions of characters, Was just wondering if there was any good regular “Super” characters, Which of the regular Super characters are “actually good”, I’ve heard about Ken, Honda, Dhalsim, Sagat but that’s about it. Would you if you have time to be willing to further elaborate?
Also thank you once again for your response, Kinda hard to get one nowadays
Who would you ban from WW? I would guess you would say Guile, but I don’t know if people realize how difficult it is to set up his jab redizzy, not to mention he’s the worst version of Guile. WW Gief’s short SPD landing is totally negated from not being able to move his lariat.
I was actually only thinking about guile, i just reread my post now and i have no idea why i used the word “few” on it.
And I agree with you: even though WW Gief’s SPD is completelly unbalanced, against a decent player you’ll basically never be allowed to land it, on most matchups at least.
Taken just by what WW Guile has (jab redizzy non-wtihstanding) he is the worst. All sonic booms have the same speed (IIRC) and he no reversal since he’s a WW character.
As far as Super SF2 characters… I don’t know of any reason to use them. Of course we don’t know for sure since no one has broken down their frame data, but by what we do know, Old ST characters recover from blockstun/hitstun one frame faster, some have one frame faster jump arcs, and some have waaaay better properties than their original Super counterpart (Sagat, Honda, others I guess).
Admittedly I play HSF2 everyday. I can’t let go of it for Pre-ST nostalgia. There are many words to describe this particular game despite the unbalanced tier opposed to ST. I FUCKING LOVE HYPER STREET FIGHTER 2.
I’m not an online player. I’m into traditional arcade/supergun set ups followed by Dreamcast and Cps2 ST.
The post above was done by TrueSephiorth but my question is how was he able to find this out.
Maybe if I knew I would probably break down the “Super” characters frame data myself but until then I’m asking people here if they can name good viable “Super” characters and yet I get directed to the “Old” characters (Just wanna input here that in case this is sounding snobbish or rude . . . . I’m not trust me ) But I wanted to know about Super specific characters. I appreciate the help and suggestions to use the Old characters but at the same time if I wanted to know about the Old character I would have asked. Man I feel like I’m gonna get a mixed reaction based off this but it’s worth asking and explaining so if you can help me out with these few more questions or have any suggestion I would appreciated it thanks.
By the way you by any chance play this on Fightcade? Would love to play a few sometime.
Well if you play it alot maybe you can give insight on some of the good viable “Super” characters. Which ones are viable for competition in your opinion. I keep asking people cause I know there has to be at least 2 or 3 with 5 being the most?
Man I’m sorry, online fighting isn’t for me. very un-precise timing. I had moments versing players from JP and Europe with a similar downspeed to mines at 54mbps and it was a slightly smoother experience than domestic ones.
I suppose it is still fun for road trips, casual gaming, and the sorts with my laptop/desktops. However, I feel this isn’t orthodox enough.
