In the general SF4AE discussion section we’re talking about vortexes. Vega came up as one of the characters who supposedly gets bodied worse than others by vortexes. I don’t play Vega, but I know his weakness is to pressure, so I guess this is true.
What do you guys think of this new addition for Vega?
Ex flying barcelona variant:
Depending on the two punch buttons pressed, Vega’s ex barcelona will have different properties. The property it has currently is that it initially attacks the opponent on the way up knocking them into the air.
A new variant: Another variant causes Vega to lose his initial attack from ex barcelona. Instead he now has 1 point of armor. This version of the ex is used for escape purposes.
I have no clue on whether this would make Vega overpowered, underpowered, or do nothing to help or hurt him. If it is overpowered, then this variant could be tweaked in terms of perhaps costing 2 bars of meter instead of 1 to initiate. A more creative option I though of was that perhaps this version could only be enacted if Vega has his mask on, and his mask flies off as he absorbs the armor so he needs to pick it up again before he can have access to this ex variant. The mask pretty much works as his armor point lol.
I put this up here for Vega players to discuss. I have never played Vega but I think he’s cool.
