AE is a farce too.
intentionally make the dlc characters top? thats fucked, for a few reasons.
first being people that are willing to pay more money get to use better characters. secondly that by creating some game dominating dlc character that is akin to 3s chun or (lol) 3s yun or cvs2 a-groove the game will eventually become stale by repetitive use of the top characters. those players hardcore enough to stick with this will, but the majority of competitive players will get bored and figure that they’d rather move on to another game with less lopsided balance, just in time for capcom to sell them the next offering: STREET FIGHTER VS. TEKKEN.
this game will then be upgraded to street fighter vs. tekken champ edition, and then once more to super street fighter vs. tekken champion arcade edition. but this last game will have one terrible flaw in that the dlc characters are wayyyyy too good. just in time for capcom to sell you their next offering: Bank Account Fighter vs. Sheeple: We Be Rollin in Benjamins
