One of my favorite arcade game of all time.
What are the top tiers?

I guess it goes something like but that’s my own feeling:

Akuma
Sagat
Sodom
Charlie
Ryu
Adon
Rose
Birdy
Ken
Chun-li
Bison
Guy
Dan


#2

guy is god-tier in alpha 1. broken re-dizzys.

sub


#3

Everyone was broken in that game. Yep.


#4

Never met a really good Guy player. The only one I met was someone named Marchall… and he sucks really bad at Guy… even worse than the computer in normal level.

What do you mean by broken? I mean… besides Guy infinite and Sodom unblocable HK, and Chun-li god like priority moves, how are the other characters broken?

Believe it or not, I play this game even more than SFA3 and CvS2.


#5

Re-dizzy combos. The ones you mentioned are the obvious ones.


#6

The ones I mentioned are the only one I am aware of. What about Ryu? Rose? and so on… how are they broken?


#7

auto mode ken comes to mind as well, but i dont recall why o_O


#8

ken was hella good, c.short,c.forward,c.rh,jab roll series was way too good. it was a lockdown.

but nothing compared to guy at all, no matter what


#9

I’m more a Alpha 2 player but on Alpha 1 my (imo) is:

Akuma
Ken
Ryu
Sagat
Charlie
Chun Li
Rose
Sodom
Adon
Bison
Guy
Birdie
Dan


#10

No way. Why is Guy that low?


#11

You’re asking MA? lol

Course that may be bcause he too has never faced a good guy, but outside of Akuma owning everyone else in that game, Guy was the best.


#12

Ops… I was doing the list and I forget that guy had a good combo system on Alpha 1 (on Alpha 2 hes really way worse) I miss that one, now I remember how I had the tier list on my Alpha 1 times:

Akuma
Ken
Ryu
Sagat
Charlie
Chun Li
Guy
Rose
Sodom
Adon
Bison
Birdie
Dan

If anyone has different or same tier list please post it so we can exchange ideas.


#13

Expand on these broken redizzy combos please…


#14

Guy is broken as hell. Bottom tier my ass.
Alpha 1 wasn’t my bag.

It just seemed like a broke ass game that revolved more around doing large chain combos than actually outthinking your opponent.


#15

Don’t you mean “Why is Dan that low?”:clap:


#16

You guys are forgetting how top Rose is.

Her, Guy and Akuma tops.


#17

Guy was pretty sick in Alpha 1. In Alpha 1 he had more then the MP, HP and FF chain goin for him. When you dizzied someone you could start a chain that would dizzy them again. So if Guy landed his dizzy combo, he could do the same combo again and get a second dizzy off of it. You would have that problem in Alpha 3 but it doesn’t allow you to be re-dizzied in a combo. Plus just about all of Guy’s normals could be canceled into his special moves. If you’ve seen a decent Alpha 2 or Alpha 3 Guy then you can see why Guy was on top of his game in Alpha1.

Jump-in HK,LP,MP,HK,MP,HP,(mk/hk hayagake)

I don’t think Guy was THAT broken, I mean everybody had somethin scary in Alpha 1. They should have left his cancelability alone through all the Alphas. Imagine a cross between Alpha 1 and 3 Guy. Oh and Akuma shouldn’t really count since he was a secret character anyway. People only picked him after their other shoto’s got smacked around.


#18

WHY IS DAN THAT LOW

He was pretty damn good in A1, IMO.


#19

Rose is tops in this game as well.

Her, Akuma and Guy are strong. Ken’s great too.

There’s tier listing in the old VS book if anyone has it.
