Think about it.
If 3s just had 2I rooster (but with 3s versions of characters), maybe it would have been more balanced overall.
The 5 new characters are unbalanced. Q, Remy and Twelve suck (from a gameplay standpoint i mean - i like their designs), while Chun and Makoto are overpowered.
SO, the first 3 mean nothing.
Take away the 2 bitches.
Ken is still top, of course.
But many characters benefit greatly from the abscence of the 2 bicthes.
Akuma suffers a lot from them.
He’s actually a very good character, he can hang pretty well against Ken, and he isn’t too bad against Yun.
Dudley dies to Chun Li. Take her away, and he can dominate.
Urien dies to Makoto. Again, take her away and he doesn’t have nightmare matchups (some slights disadvantages, but that’s acceptable).
Alex is a lot more viable without the risk of encountering Bitch-Li.
Hugo loses his worst match too.
Yang would benefit from Makoto’s absence too (more than Yun imho).
