Shes not top tier imo but she is still good man. It’s just harder now because no more free corner escape tatsus, j.hp slightly weaker, ex tatsu +2 from +4, air tatsus midscreen to bait anti airs is not as reliable now, u2 to catch crossups pretty much gone, dwu(obviously), etc etc.
If they fixed her EX DP getting blocked after first hit when going through a Fireball at a decent range then she would be really really good imo.
She got great meterless damage, great stun, amazing anti air in cr.hp(problem is she does not get rewarded well for anti airing in terms of damage and stuff like some other chars do for example Ryu DP FADC Ultra), good mixups, yeah her footsie game is pretty predictable, backdash aint the greatest, good frametraps, ex hadouken buff is nice, st.hp buff is cool but very limited in use due to the startup.
I wouldn’t change her hadouken to be like Ryu’s it would make her too good imo. Maybe adjust the recovery frames slightly or make her hadou go fullscreen is all i would change.
So for buffs i feel all she really needs is EX DP fix and maybe a slight buff on her hadou recovery wouldn’t hurt.
