I am really just generally interested to hear some peoples opinions. I wont name any names, but some of you newer or non-experienced players seem like you make it a point to bring up the “chun is too good” comment every chance you get.
Yes even though i do main Chun, I am not offended if you think she is too strong, because everyone can have their opinion. In my honest opinion she is beatable by any character.
But in all honesty please answer some of these questions for me:
What specific Chun players have you played against? Any top chun players? Why were they so good?
What made you feel as though the match up was not fair and not winnable?
Are there any Chun players you respect? Any of them “honorable”?
What do you prefer about playing other characters as opposed to Chun li? Is it just complaining for the sake of variety?
Do you feel as though if you were to pick Chun, you can beat more people than you do now? You can become a top player even?
Do you dislike Chun in other games as well?
If a character like Sean were to have a better kara throw, and a better super, would you change all the complaining toward him?
The reason why I started this thread is because I feel there is a general misconception about Chun-li. If you ask any random street fighter player about 3s, they will be quick to say “chun fest”, even if they dont even play the game! There can be many reasons for this but the obvious is tourney results. But if you really break it down, its not like random people pick Chun and can win tournaments. In fact it is very rare for randoms to even break through to top 8 in any notable 3s tournament. It simply doesn’t happen as opposed to sf4.
I hope this misconception can be changed eventually. I am not gonna say Hugo is better than Chun because that is not what this whole post is about. I just hope people can start to understand Chun-Li before being so quick to cry because of the influence it brings to the game that WE love and play. In all honesty I feel as though this is the reason why 3s tournaments are no longer featured in hardly any American tournaments. I feel that these people crying are bringing a bad rap to 3rd Strike. Something that it does not deserve.
Ps. Any reference to Chun-Li can be substituted to another character if you have complaints about someone else. (Yun, Ken, Makoto, etc.)
