powa post! IMO, the characters do matter but so do the duos and or teams. Since the game is based on helpers, its only natural that some characters would be better than others.
speed up wolvie ron- how the fuck are you going to block a character you can’t push block? speed up wolvie can hit confirm into tron, activate speed up mode, infinite till tron is able to be used again, then a BS reset, bnb with tron dead character. By far the fastest dash in the game in that mode.
guile ron or guile\sent\AA combinations
when guile starts doing TK flash kicks combined with his priority on his normals, it can be very hard to approach him. He can only do single hit overheads on the average character who’s crouching which kinda sucks for him. Multi hit overheads add so much to a characters game. He controls space pretty well with the right helpers to.
Not sure if he can beat the tops, but IMO he has potential to do so.
charlie ron or charlie\drones or charlie\doom**
its hard to say who’s better. charlie or guile. They both have different things that make them good. Charlie can really get to work and his mixups are better than guiles. If the opponent is scared of constant pressure, charlies RH throw can do some awesome life. Rh throw, dash fwd, s.lk+tron, qcf+kk will do over half life off a throw setup. He can also do some pretty interesting things with his banana kicks to allow for reposition or mixups. His sonic boom will trade with sentinels crouching spit. His bck+rh will hit top tiers to allow him to get mixups and thats pretty dangerous combined with tron. J.rh+tron vs sentinel is an instant overhead, sentinel doesn’t like characters who can do that. Those type of mixups are very hard to block on reaction if not impossible and his loops in general on hit can be very hard to deal with.
charlie has much much more to abuse outside of what I posted and the video I made.
morrigan ron has some very retarded options. IIRC, she has a 6 piece overhead string on crouching characters of the average height. She has an instant overhead to make things a tad bit trickier for the opponent, she can wiff with addf.fp @ the right height to fake highs and she has an infinite vs standing characters if you take the time to learn that. Not that hard iirc. All of her supers are above average. Basic bnb with tron, qcf+kk is retarded life and the opponent can’t roll after that for a free mixup. If you hit the following mixup with another bnb+tron, its a dead character. She also has 3 arcs on her AD which makes her angles of attack or dodge make her that much better. Great air FB, priroity on SRK is pretty good and her command grab is actually useful. She also has an instant overhead which is even deadlier given her mixup potential already.
personally, he’s currently my best low tier character maybe out side of morrigan. Very damaging loops, that can’t be blocked consistently due to random hit box placement. Every single one of spidey pokes will crossup. To my knowledge, he’s the only character like that in the entire game. His mobility is above average for a low tier. He has an AD that can be canceled in 3 spots to change his arc coming in, a wall jump and wall jump+dash glitch which gives him a different angle. His web shot is also rather good. It goes through a lot of things and its good enough to stop storms hail. If the FP web shot ever hits you, its usually game over for that character. He also has great guard break setups so if he loops one character up, the character coming in is usually in deep shit. His j.rh is an instant overhead that breaks armor on the first hit on sentinel and trust me, robot doesn’t like that when tron is there.
another low tier I play often, this bitch is OUT OF CONTROl. Her spike is god like, it’ll stop MOST projectiles once its out even stopping sentinels c\s.spit. Her ghost can be used to control extra parts of the screen and force the opponent away. Sj.rh builds retarded bar. She can throw into tron all though the damage output ranges from 20% life to 50% because of how characters bounce off the rings. Her hit confirms are retarded into tron, c.lk, c.mk hit confirm, call tron, qcf+pp, aim down, tron rings hit, c.fp is god like. She also has some next level things about her that I don’t see anyone use. You can actually control her barrel glitch, the one where you have to hold start. One of the bad things about ruby is that has bad reposition. If she super jumps, she can’t really control her decending arc all that well but her taunt glitch will slam her back to ground from the peak height of her SJ. This makes it harder for the opponent to hit you and the glitch itself even has a hit box on it. She also has the overhead glitch out of her qcf+pp super which can be used in mixups. c.lk, c.mk, call tron, qcf+pp, fly through the opponent to sandwhich the oppponent, get the overhead glitch and you can do 1-3 hit mixups after your super and if they hit, you can bnb+tron, c.fp, then reset throw after FS or super through them on wake up.
I might fill some more of this page up later. Other low tiers who I think have mad potential.
gambit with the proper helpers. Bad mobility.
jill - this bitch doesn’t need mobility apparently
cammy but @ this point after 10 years, i think everyone knows cammy is god like.
anakaris ron - by far one of the nastiest low tiers in the game.
