I remember when I posting bitchin about Sakura’s rank awhile ago lol sry. Like I said before, I was a lil upset. I got a lot of hate for even playing Sakura, and everyone thought she was just ass…until I showed everyone otherwise. I went to tournaments and started to show people how good she can be. I do very well with her and till this day and I have never stopped maining her. In AE, it seems that 3 of the top players in Japan(Daigo, Mago,Tokido) have posted a tier list for the game. Now, I was still going to play Sakura as a main no matter what, as well as Yun who is my favorite SF character.The tier list doesnt mean anything to me as you can see because of that. But I was really shocked at where they put her. I knew she was going to be better, but I was shocked and happy that I didnt switch from Sakura ever. http://www.eventhubs.com/news/2011/jan/30/complete-ssf4-arcade-edition-tiers-daigo-mago-tokido/
What got me is, from what I hear Mago teir list is the better one. If that is true, that puts Sakura as the 13th best character in the game. Over noticeable charaters: Rufus, Bison,Honda,Ryu,Abel, and Guile. What do you guys think of this?
Feb.3 New Interview! Daigo, Tokido, Mago: Talk about Sakura
Recently Sakura seems a bit dangerous, doesn?t she?
Mago: I?ve been thinking that really, Sakura is strong as hell, isn?t she?
Daigo: Yeah her attack power has been buffed a bit.
Tokido: Her ability to buffer Shouoken off of Crouching MK is definitely strong.
Mago: Crouching HP as an anti-air is crazy good too, even if you use it only once, most, if not all characters will eat it. Sorry to change subjects, but I feel that Adon is a really tough match for Fei.
OK, my question is: How are they just now knowing about cr.mk into shoryu? Im sure they knew or is it more powerful now?
