Basically, who has the most constant threat of big damage?
I’d say ken, as he can combo into super off of nearly all of his stuff, gains meter fast, is a threat even without meter, he’s fast and most of his moves have high priority, and a geat tick throw game. There’s pretty much no question of that IMO, it’s just determining who are the runner-ups.
The people on my mind after Ken are Dudely, Ibuki Ryu, Akuma, Makoto, twins, and Chun-Li
I don’t think Urien is really up there, his big damage is situational and without meter he doesn’t have that great pressure
Cun-Li has great normals but only one (great) combo worth using, as well as sick throw game, I’m not sure what to think about her
same for Yun. He can do some decent pressure without meter, with dive kicks and throws, and does temporary big pressure when his speed, priority, and damage go up during GJ, does that qualify him for top rushdow?
