I’ve got this situation coming up, and I’m not sure how to approach it. The director is seriously considering this.
He has big dizzy potential, long pokes, and easy chains.
Crazy Move #1
Ok, first of all, he’s got the toally safe scissor kick that sets up a throw guessing game afterwards if blocked. It’s really fast, and hits a lot of stuff, and you’re at a disadvantage if you block it. Oh yeah, if it HITS, you forfeit the round because he can combo after it and dizzy you, and then do his easy redizzy combo and kill you.
Psycho crusher was weakened in that it doesn’t do much as block hits… but it’s still crazy. It still does nice block damage, and now it can cross up randomly even when you’re blocking it. When it knocks down, you can time it again so that you fly over the opponent as they get up and it’s really hard for them to know if it is going to be a crossup or not, rinse, repeat.
Granted, I don’t play against CE Bison much, so I’m kinda in the dark here, which is why I’m asking for all your opinions on the matter.
Personally, I don’t want him banned. He does have weaknesses like no solid reversal, he’s weak to ticks, you can stuff these crazy moves with moves of your own, and I like doing anti-crossup DPs :D. But I when I look at how much of a monster he is, I don’t know what to do. I’m honestly really tempted to take the easy road and pick him myself, I know that I would probably do 10 times better.
So… what’s the verdict? Is he too strong?
