Hi, don’t let the title fool you I don’t by any means believe that Cammy is ‘cheaper’ than Sagat.
My friend on the other hand, thinks Blanka, Zangief, Cammy, Balrog are the cheapest characters in the game. He first played as Sakura and couldn’t play her very well so he switched to Ken and Ryu, then just Ryu. He has played as Ryu for the last couple of months now, but he has plateaued recently in Championship Mode. From what I understand Sagat is God-Tier; I’m no rookie to Street Fighter and it’s not new that Sagat is considered a god tier character as he has in prior titles.
He uses Sagat as his main character now that he has plateaued in Championship Mode and has gotten his Tournament Edition Fight Stick, he openly admits to needing a crutch because he can’t beat Blankas and Zangiefs. (In general he hates charge characters, and often just groups the characters he hates and feels are imba as “the charge characters”)
“you play as cammy/boxer/bison/gouken all have lame homing attacks that’s what you rely on. when bison you rely on head stomp, from head stomp you go into a flip kick or slide kick, when you pick gouken you rely on his unblockable air whatever, with cammy you rely on her spinning grab move, you play chars with cheezball moves.”
"its alright to bitch if I’m sagat, but I cannot bitch if your a char like sagat, such as Cammy? fast attacks with no recovery, counters pretty much everything in the game, unbalanced combos.
turtle chars, I have to wait either till
(A) you attack me once your charge up
(B) come in sagat and destroy your block game"
My friends gamertag will remain Anonymous, as I’m sure he wouldn’t post what he thinks on here himself.
The sad thing is even when he’s Sagat he still wins maybe 4/10 of our matches, as opposed to 1-2/10 when playing as other characters. In a nutshell I want someone to just counter his arguement that all the charge characters and Cammy in particular are ‘cheaper characters’ than Sagat.
