i know Sak isn’t a shoto, and the style is officially “Ansatsu-Ken” as per Capcom Japan. but i need some thoughts on what order the following characters stand in, by themselves:
i’m inclined to put V-Ken over Z-Ryu because of Ken’s range of VCs. the fireball barrage/confusion VCs have in my experience been very very useful for taking out a lot of chars, and i think Ryu’s slightly beneath that although he is very solid.
X-Akuma = Z-Akuma + 20% damage increase + CPS chains - supers - airblock - 20% vitality - demon flip. unlike X-Ryu he keeps his hopkick, but it won’t save his life. Z-Aku’s ok but he doesn’t have a c.FK xx 50% like Ryu.
X-Ryu is still very solid and packs a 50% damage c.FK once his meter’s charged. Z-Ryu has alpha counters, the hopkick, and level 1 shinkuus every 15 seconds. crouch cancel j.SP, tatsumaki redizzy.
