I mean in-game, not the crowd/competitors. What was the highest-finishing player who used a female character? Only one I can think of was Juicebox using Juri, and even he switched back to Abel.
A far cry from the days of 3S and A3. I can’t even recall seeing a single Chun Li or Sakura anywhere!
EDIT: ack, I guess this is all highly specific to AE… guess I might have put this in the wrong forum, if any mods want to move it no problem.
