I’m leaving Nash on my list of “backups,” but to be honest… probably not going to bother. Been a Gouki main for literally most of my life (pushing 30) and really only picked up Nash to begin with because he was the most interesting character to me out of what was available in S1. But good grief, he got beat up. Gouki has his own very, very obvious problems as well so I’ll unfortunately definitely have to develop a solid backup, but Nash can’t really help me with Gouki’s problems. There are a few problems that make me second guess bothering to apply the effort for Gouki as it is, but that same feeling is exactly what Nash gives off now as well.
Although, TBH, nobody else on the roster interests me enough to bother with them as a serious backup either. I’m kind of hoping one of the “new” characters will give me a true backup, at which point Nash will be completely dead for me until, hopefully, S3 when maybe Capcom will realize that Nash had already been generally figured out in S1 and never needed nerfing to begin with.
