I’m new to SRK forums so first I’ll say hi. I’m a gamer in Malaysia and it’s sad around here because there is little to very, very little of what we call a Street Fighter’s community. Singapore has us beat on that. So it is rather hard for me to find anyone to share with if not online.
Akuma’s Ultra is rather balanced I’d say, having played the past versions of him. Does anyone ever regret about his ultra having landed on the opponent, gives him 1-2 EX bars?
I apologize if this has already been stated. I could not find a topic on this by lurking and it’s a bit specific for the search function to allow but.
Why I think that Gouki’s ultra is balanced.
I have been using Gouki since 3rd strike so to me the changes of his ultra felt balanced.
Let me just mention why:
> For the sake of it I should mention it took me a while to change from a parrying gameplay set to being more classic in my setups, jump-ins, rushdowns while juggling patience; and I’m fine with that.
> In thirdstrike much of the people who played 3rd strike would rather not pick gouki because of his incapabilities in EX.
> They granted him EX but have limited him in quite the few ways:
- His tatsu requires a more particular timing if I am not mistaken and some matchups need him not to use it. Or rather, I find myself using it a lot less in SFIV.
- His ultra may not be as easy to connect this time around, and is unsafe if done openly; however it is an option from a -whiffed- demon flip and a user can get his raging demon a lot faster in SFIV.
