I’m just sick of it. He has so many horribly bad matchups, and even the ones that are neutral to him still require you to basically never fuck up.
just about any random shotoscrub in the game can just beat out your moves by mashing(air tatsu>>>T-hawk), whenever anyone)ANYONE) decides to just run away and turtle the match becomes 10X harder, you can beat his command grabs literally by just mashing throw, his massive body soaks up every fireball on the screen, You need EX meter to even attempt to get in on a zoning char, and, finally:
His damage is not even that good. plenty of other characters can equal/exceed his damage output, they just don’t do it all in a single move like he does.
Pick a random shoto(also counting oni). they can have just as good damage output as hawk, much better movement, a projectile, a MUCH better reversal(tomahawk sucks dick unless you predict perfectly), better air to air moves, etc.
Hawk only becomes somewhat less shit when he gets the hard knockdown, and even then there are other characters(Akuma, Cammy, etc) that can do the same thing, but better.
I’m tired of having to play perfectly against every random scrub I meet, because if I don’t I can literally just get mashed to death since their moves will beat mine 90% of the time.
I made it to around 2800 PP with him, but frankly it’s just not fun anymore. I have to work so hard in my matches, while the other guy can just roll his face over his stick and fight evenly.
Just gonna wait till Ultra hits so I can main Hugo. hopefully capcom will not repeat the mistakes they made with hawk.
