(Created in the off chance Capcom visit SRK or get linked to this page)
Unless Capcom have given up on this game I forsee a big update (similar to AE 2012).
Hopefully at least some of our these are considered or influence the buffs Lei gets.
Feel free to make your own suggestions and I’ll add them to the list.
**Lei Buffs Wishlist **

[LIST]
[]Standing Block without losing your stance.
[
]Make stance change animations cancellable/skippable, or safe.
[]Give Lei’s stances Cross Rush capabilities.
[
]Let stances resume after landing from a jump.
[]The Kick in his Play Dead Stance should hit low
[
]Add a more block stun and hit stun (1 or 2 frames) to attacks that can be canceled into a stance after the hit by pressing up, down, or forward (EXCLUDING Rushing Snake in Snake Stance).
[*]Add 1 point of armor to Tiger Sip Blow after two Tiger Sips in Drunken Stance
[/LIST]

WAY too early to even start making these kinds of threads.

I agree, Lei is clearly broken and will only get nerfs as time goes by.


#4

While I believe it is too early to ask for buffs, I don’t think Lei has anything other than the palm loop that is “broken”. If Lei had a dive kick then yeah, he’d be broken. But his slow normal stance movement and short range air to air options leave him feeling pretty balanced at the moment. I’ve had at least 100 games on XBL and I haven’t really had the feeling that Lei has any overwhelming advantages in any matchups.

But again, too early to tell. Palm will get patched quickly so I try not to rely on it and I’d recommend the same for any other player wanting to pick up Lei.

Oh man, being able to remain in stances after blocking would be so awesome… That would change everything to the better.


#6

When it comes to nerfs, Lei’s Orchid Palm Loops should be nerfed so he only land 3 MP Orchid Palms after the HP Orchid Palm.

When it comes to buffs:
[LIST]
[]The Kick in his Play Dead Stance should hit low
[
]Add a tad more block stun and hit stun(I’m talking about 1 or 2 frames here) to attacks that can be canceled into a stance after the hit by pressing up, down, or forward(EXCLUDING Rushing Snake in Snake Stance).
[*]Add 1 point of armor to Tiger Sip Blow after two Tiger Sips in Drunken Stance
[/LIST]
Don’t get me wrong, I really like how Lei Wulong is right now, those buffs are just wishful thinking.

Just so you know, the palm loop can be combo’d into from cr.hp > mp palm. You don’t have to start from hp palm to begin the loop.

With law you’re able to shaolin kicks > tag > cr.hp > mp palm > mp palm …ect.

Lei isn’t broken At ALL.
Unless you come from the future I don’t see what you see in Lei making him broken.
If you think Lei is on the same level as a Mishima with just his regular stance then I’m clearly missing something.

On block he loses any stance he has and stance changes are unsafe.
Lei’s meterless wall bouncing is a slower, less practical maybe even less damaging than meterless crumples and groundbounces.

people complain about loosing stance on block, when xiaoyu can’t even block in her stances.
