I’m sorry, I really wanted to refrain from posting here, but I’m going to anyway. It really disappoints me when I see this kind of attitude. I started using Hakan last year, to challenge myself and see where I could go with him, I fell in love with the character, because I realised what he could do.
To go on to some of your points Reaper, if you’re so scared of someone mashing dp through your jabs, then use the the mp string instead…yeah it’s a 1 frame link, but you can practise it, and plink it and make it a lot easier to do. But tbh you shouldnt be living in fear of dp, they’re the one taking the risk. I’ve been playing AE hakan since the consoles have came out and I can say that his his new combos are far beyond how good I initially thought they would be, he’s so much scarier up close now. Okay someone’s going to mash dp…adapt to it, try something different, try and bait it, because thats risky to throw out against Hakan.
Hakan doesn’t suck, even in Super he didn’t suck, you need to start using him properly. You play a good game and it’s going to be difficult for anybody.
I have to agree with Swoops and Eyepawd on their points. Like EyePawd said, no character is bad in the right hands. Hakan is still new, believe or not, he has so much potential and people are still figuring out new things, he can only get better.
