Lemme try again.
ST is a very, very, very “digital” game. If you look at high level Japanese videos, it is nearly impossible to tell the players apart except by their character selection, because there pretty much only is a “correct” way to play the characters, and then various wrong ways to play the characters. You can look at ST videos and see when someone truly plays their character “correctly” they nearly always win, but it’s also very very robotic and pretty predictable. The predictable part doesn’t usually matter because the “correct” way to play is correct because it is so strong and has very few holes in it.
No one really knows the full depth of what is the “correct” way to play SFIV yet, which makes it more interesting.
