This thread is open for all completely crazy ideas. Here’s the lowdown, and I’m sure all Cammy players are already aware of it:
Cammy is strong. She’s strong in a straightforward basic way that involves relentless pressure and ambiguousness galore. People are pissed, both the haters of Cammy and the true fans of Cammy. It ruins the fun of someone who genuinely enjoys Cammy but has to deal with the crap of everyone reminding them how Cammy is not a fair character. The thing I hate the most is when people drop a character they love simply because they get sick of all the hate surrounding that character. With this in mind, I created this thread solely for discussing any crazy overhauls to Cammy. Don’t worry about balance if you don’t want to, just discuss ideas.
My ideas and reasoning:
Back in Vanilla SF4, I was super interested in Cammy. She was on my top list of characters to play. However when I tried her out I was dissapointed. Spin knuckle and hooligan throw were weak and too situational in my eyes. She changed from seaming like a complex creative character to seeming like a straightforward divekick style character.
If I were to overhaul Cammy, I would completely overhaul spin knuckle and hooligan throw. I would make those way more integral to her fighting style and I would nerf her current style of cannon strike hell. I just look back to SFII where she didn’t even have canon strike!!! Yea, the move that defines her in SF4 didn’t even freakin exist in her original SFII incarnate. Her other moves were way more strong in SFII because of that. I want Cammy back to how she was in SFII dammit!!!
