I don’t know if this would be more appropriate in the SFxT boards than the Newbie boards, if it is feel free to move it.
What makes a good second-slot character, and who are these characters anyway? Is it just Tekken characters or grapplers, because that’s what I’m seeing everywhere. Right now I’m using Asuka just because it seemed right and I didn’t want to pick some big beefy grappler like Hugo or King, but she seems like a pure rushdown character in this game and I prefer to zone and keepaway. I always hear that zoners like Ryu, Poison, Vega, etc should be in the first slot and aren’t good second.
Are they just overthinking it, or is there anyone that can zone that’s a good secondary? (Jin maybe? He is a Tekken character…)
