I did a search throughout SRK and couldn’t find a thread that wasn’t character specific, or didn’t focus on what characters were going to be included in Dash. So this is my little list of changes I hope Capcom will do, and I believe these are pretty reasonable:
Gameplay: All Supers/Ultras are done with the QCFx2 motion.
This would only be a benefit for many reasons: Capcom wants to appeal to the largest audience possible, and this would help by removing some awkward super commands (Guile and Claw). It will cut down on Scrubby Shotos, because it seems that new players pick the Shotos partly because their supers are very easy to do, so if every character had easy supers, new players will (hopefully) try out other characters. Parries can be done in the air. I see no reason to not have this.
Improved lobby system (where we can see more than just 3 players at a time). An option to select a player based on their main character. Like, their avatar shows which character they use 9 times out of 10 and you can set a preference for players that use a certain character, or avoid others. Obviously this feature wouldn’t be avail in Championship Mode. I think this would help avoid the Shoto Scrubs, because I don’t learn anything by fighting the same character over and over again.
Guile: Add Remy?s kick move (Doubt this would happen, the Guile elite would balk at this, but I think it would add some variety to the character, plus you could link it to the storyline that Guile meets a young Remy and they both learn some new tricks). More priority for Flash Kick.
Sagat: Remove some priority for DP and Jmp.
Vega: Remove claw/mask throw move, it is a completely worthless move.
Sakura: Revert back to CVS 2 form with original voice actress. I don’t like the SF4 voice actress, Sakura sounds way too cutesy. The voice actress in CVS 2 made Sakura sound like a cool tough chick.
Cody: Remove rock throw move. Remove all previous supers. Keep the knife, have it air-throwable (but he has to pick it up each time). Give him Yamazaki?s DP move with Knife. He has a brawler super, when he has knife equipped the super does 5% more damage. His Ultra is a grab that ends with a Streets of Rage-esque body slam.
Balrog: Give him Q?s command grab.
Guy: Keeps kick super. Gets a Raging Demon Ultra.
Ryu: Fake fireball.
Bison: Fake Slide.
Zangief/T. Hawk: Simplified command grabs with HCB + F motion. If HD Remix did it, I don’t see why SF 4 can’t do it.
Dee Jay: Machine Gun Upper when properly timed destroys projectiles.
Dudley: Kept exactly the same as in 3S, and keeps his rose-throwing taunt.
My guess who’s one of the new characters: Haggar. It only makes sense, Capcom has been teasing us about Haggar since Alpha 3 and Zangief’s alternate costume in 4. He shouldn’t play like Zangief, but a hybrid character like Alex in 3S.
Edit: messed up title of thread, disregard none char specific. Let the trolls tear me apart.
