Terry’s damage isn’t great (unless it is those tricky HD combos mentioned above) and he is based around frame traps and not solid mixups. He has some nice cross up set ups but even if the ydo land the damage you get for the resources you spend isn’t that fantastic. I don’t think he is on the same level as say Maxima or Mai but he isn’t one of the stronger characters in the game. Still, he is really annoying and can get you playing really stupid if you start hitting too many buttons against him when he forces you to block.
I like Goro in A. He is great at rewarding guesses for very simple execution. Some very good buttons up close to frustrate people. I think he is a really good pocket character to have for tournaments for certain matchups and against people who may not have faced a decent one before. 3 bad guesses in a row and your gone… very demoralizing.
Saiki still deserves to be S in my opinion. His zoning game is just so good, not enough people play him.
Leona is pretty decent at controlling space, I am not quite positive to where exactly I would put her atm but somewhere around A-.
Ralf is pretty meh… B+ish maybe A-. His buttons are a little overrated (still really good just not as extremely godlike as some people make them to be). Great damage for the little resources he has to use… but hard to open up people sometime. I wish he could combo off his normal throw in the corner and make his st. C hit crouching characters.
Chin should be a little higher. Nothing to do with cafe ID’s opinion on him… but Chin is pretty good.
