Since a free balance patch has been announced, we have a golden opportunity to finally make Fuerte solid. So, I think we should use this thread to discuss what changes should be made. Since we all play the character differently, it’s gonna be a rather fun, and hopefully fruitful, discussion.
EDIT: Because of school work, and my own procrastination, I may never get to writing the request letter, so the letter thing’s off. On the other hand, Capcom likely sees most of this stuff in first place so it may not be necessary other than to centralize all change requests here.
Here’s a couple of things I want to see.
All glitches removed.
Redistribute the damage of Guacamole Slew so that El Fuerte gets at least some of the damage in whenever a trade happens.
Make MK and HK off of Backwards Habanero Dash a Picadillo Jump that goes straight upward and forward respectively.
Farther backdash, same as the one off of Habanero Dash Forward
Restore Invincibility on Tortilla
Remove last four frames of all versions of Guacamole Slew
Give invincibility frames on the back dash off of Habanero Dash
Allow him to create pressure that doesn’t involve cr.LP four times in a row or having to follow up each normal with Run Stop.
Allow for more combo opportunities off of normals, especially where he can choose to go for damage, knockdown, or reset.
Give his MK > MK chain some sort of use.
These are the changes that seemed to be agreed on.
Quesadilla Bomb’s input is changed to either a QCF (236) or a QCB (214) input to keep El Fuerte’s kick button options available.
Quesadilla Bomb’s recovery improved. There should be no reason to be at a disadvantage on hit with a level 1 Quesadilla Bomb.
Faster startup on Quesadilla Bomb
Removal of all glitches.
Shower Kick is treated as airborne in its active frames. If Yun can have this for his overhead, why not El Fuerte?
Shower Kick can go over Rufus and Blanka, making this technique universal.
cr.HP special cancelable.
cr.LP > cr.MK now possible.
Tostada Press’ hitbox restored to its SF4 size.
Tortilla Propeller’s invincibility returned.
Increase invincibility to the same as Tostada Press for Fajita Buster
Farther back dash.
[*]Please fix the reeling animations on characters so they’re universal. Certain characters like Ryu, Ken, Evil Ryu, Yun, and Yang have oddly longer reeling times when they’re hit which makes RSF harder to do on these characters.
