I’ve seen it mentioned quite a few times both here and on other forms that Yoshi is one of if not the best “team player” in SFxT, and that one of the reasons that people see him as F tier is that they are only seeing him as a singles fighter, not as utility.
What exactly are the things that make him so? I’ve yet to reach a highly competitive level of understanding, so when I think team synergy I think whether the character builds or burns meter, a cross counter that launches, damage potential on tag combos, whether they are successful as a point or anchor, and how they can cover various weaknesses in their partner such as creating safe tags or possessing a good reversal. Most of these are highly dependent on the two characters specifically looked at, and are not really exemplary of a universal team player.
So what makes people give Yoshi this title? If I can grasp the concept I really want to learn this character, as I’ve played a supportish role in every team based game I can think of (Medics ftw!).
