i don’t know if you guys have had the experience, but it feels like more and more people say that Abel is so much stronger to the point that they call him “an easy character”.
for example, i watched a stream last night with ryder playing some dude and the announcer said at one point; Abel is too good. everyone have to work for their mix ups, but not Abel, all he need is his roll and throw and you’re good to go.
i KNOW it’s more too it than that, I can do almost every mix up there is and I’ve came up with my own mindf**ks, but I’ve gotten alot of messages lately that his mix ups is way to easy to execute, and he gets it WAY to easily compared to the other guys who mix up, and thirdly the insane damage he does from those mixups. for me, an Abel player who is super talented and goes up with someone whith no reversal, almost always stun them atleast 1 time every set.
breathless took care of almost everything that made Abel lacking, and i don’t see Abel even having a 6-4 matchup anymore when the right choice of ultra. is Abel really that good? is he top 3?
Abel isn’t an easy character, right? I’ve never felt he was, but the “problems” he supposedly has (no good normals, no good antiairs) have almost never been apparaent to me. Is Abel too strong for the chars that have a bad backdash + bad reversal?
