Consensus matchup chart


#1

Here is a matchup chart I made to try to aggregate the matchup rating opinions of most players, with strong players getting more weight in their opinion. The numbers come from all over this forum, and from personal discussions with other players. I try to keep it updated as I get new opinions.

Each A-B matchup rating means the average number of games that a strong player of character A would win against an equally skilled player of character B, in a hypothetical series of 10 games. For instance, if Ryu has a rating of 7 against E. Honda, that means that the Ryu player would win 7 games out of 10, on average (so Ryu has advantage over E. Honda).

Feel free to comment and offer corrections to the chart.

#2

6-4 guile vs sagat is questioniabe, I’d say guile has a slight advantage in that matchup IMO 6-4 guile


#3

I find it strange that apparently Vega is higher in ranking in HDR than in ST.


#4

I could go with that, but I feel like fei vs guile is more even than that.


#5

Hmm…the Cammy players won’t like it. :bgrin:


#6

Dic - Fei 5-5? I think that matchup is a little more in Fei’s favour, he can really shut Dic down. Thats the only thing that stands out to me straight away… Other than that good job! I like the idea of the whole work in progress thing too


#7

I’d appreciate if others can comment on any of the proposed changes on matchups they feel comfortable with, and say if they agree of disagree with the change.

For instance, Guile - Sagat is currently written as 4-6, but IrrepressibleGuile thinks the inverse is true (6-4 in Guile’s favor). Can anyone else weigh in on Guile vs Sagat?

As a dedicated Honda player, I can only rely on others for non-Honda matchups. :wink:


#8

You’re insane if you think Guile has an advantage in that match. Maybe a 5-5, but there’s no way Guile wins it.

Also I think Guile vs Sim is more like 3-7. Guile vs Blanka and Claw are down as 3.5-6.5 (which sounds about right), but the Sim fight is harder than both of those


#9

Other than maybe a .5 here or there I’d say you’re Honda match-ups are spot on Thelo (not surprising).

How about some details with the arguments? People are shouting out numbers without giving out reasons. For instance I’d like to hear from Mr.Irrepressible why he thinks the Guile- Sagat match-up (which sucked for Guile in ST) is now in Guile’s favor? Other than the fact that there’s not as many good Sagat players around anymore, LOL.


#10

Ummm… well we don’t like lots of things…

I would say though that I can’t justify having Cammy / Guile at 3/7 and Cammy / Honda at 3.5 / 6.5 .

You at least have to flip those and I still personally believe Cammy / Honda is something like 2-8 but that’s just me. The rest of those numbers would be nitpicking for Cammy as far as I’m concerned, in other words, nice job Thelo!


#11

I commend the effort in trying to make a chart everyone agrees on. However, I would invest to much time into it.
Its only a matter of time befoe its giong to turn into a epic battle of pointless debate of personal opionion. Good luck though. :slight_smile:

EDIT: Seems like I may be wrong. PPL are posting tons of stuff. Looks like I’m the troll this time. My bad. :confused:


#12

Thank you. This was my first thought when I saw the chart. Vega was generally considered about 4th in ST behind various random orders of Sagat, Dhalsim, and Balrog. Sirlin made some balance changes in this game and while some characters got better in various ways there were others, including Vega, who got worse. Also remember that he made a few changes (like Zangief cr. fierce for example) just specifically to work against Vega so he basically singled this character out more than any other character.

But the key point I made is that he got worse. I love my fake walldive but if you give the choice of HDR Vega vs. ST Vega it’ll take me .1 seconds to respond ST Vega easy!!! I’ll take stored flipkick and knockdown walldive every day and twice on Sunday’s over HDR Vega and his fake walldive. There is no way in my mind that he could have jumped up 3 spots let along catapult to the #1 spot overall. :rofl:

I’m curious, Thelo, who were the Vega players you consulted with for this chart? And apparently some of the people playing other characters thought Vega was just a terrible matchup for them suddenly? Like you, for example, as an E. Honda player. You can’t honestly tell me you’d rather play this matchup in ST over HDR, now can you? Be honest.


Oh goodness!!! Ok this is the last thing I will harp on. I don’t mean to bash on this at all because I know everyone has their own opinions and this chart is based on opinions obviously but there is no way M. Bison sunk waaaaaaay the hell below Chun Li. Just no! :rofl::nono: They were both strong characters in ST. They are both still good characters in this game but they went in opposite directions. This chart has it backwards. Chun Li is the one who got worse and should go down. M. Bison is the one who got better and should go up. That is exactly why you see someone like NKI switching from Chun Li to M. Bison.

Actually at this point, can we get the complete list of folks who gave input for this chart? I’m just curious. :rofl:


#13

Who’s this scrub Vega/Immortal wannabe fanboy? :arazz:

I’ve always felt that lists and charts like this were better suited for other fighters than ST/HDR. ST is a very matchup heavy game where with the same character you can completely dominate (Sim vs Guile) and then with the same character you can get your shit pushed in (Sim vs Vega) so in saying Sim is “top” can be situational, where saying Yun is top in 3S has a bit more stability. The magic of ST is that literally everyone has a chance to win, nothing is unwinnable - just sometimes more difficult.


#14

I’m pretty sure that every super-competitive Chun player on this board feels that Fei vs Chun is 6-4 Fei.

Also, I think Chun v Ken is 6-4 Ken. It’s definitely not in her favor anymore, imo.


#15

I concur with the matchup being in Guiles favor or dead even, Gat has no easy solutions in that match.


#16

I used to think that Chun beat Honda, but after we played a good series of games, I’m inclined to agree with you Thelo that this is advantage Honda. I would agree to 6-4 in Honda’s favor.


#17

Hmm… Maybe online, but I don’t really agree with this when there is no latency. I think Thelo’s current assessment is more correct. 5.5/4.5 in Chun’s favor.


#18

Ryu 4.5 - Fake fireball give Ryu the edge
Guile 4 -Faster Running bear grab helps improve this matchup
Cammy 4 or 4.5 - Maybe its the people i play but i dont struggle with the "All-star Cammy’s) Never played Jangra though
Fei 5 Actually this is almost even IMO, maybe even giving the advantage to gief
Deejay 3 - Deejay deals more damage then Guile, that slide kick is also annoying
Balrog 5.5 - i cant really comment as i dont play too many Balrogs, i struggle at times
Vega 3 - Maybe its the lag


#19

I agree. Thelo, your Honda numbers look pretty much spot-on to me as well. I think Honda’s numbers are maybe .5 too high against a few characters but I won’t nitpick over .5. The only big disagreement I would have is Honda vs Ryu. I think that should be 2-8 at best and honestly I would probably put it even lower.


#20

I also agree. If it were my ranking chart I’d say 9-1 but I’ll live with 8-2 because well, I guess Honda might get lucky twice.
