I’M SORRY EVERYONE.
I guess I should have been more specific or explanatory.
I used the word “strong” because I didn’t want to use the words “top tier”, because if someone choose a particular character in a top tier character thread,…it would start a whole raging debate as to whether or not that mentioned character was top tier or not. So I avoided the top tier description entirely.
What I mean by strong is this…
a character that isn’t so much high up in attack or defense power, or ultra fast in speed, or any other statistical advantage over other characters…but well rounded.
In essence, WELL ROUNDED.
Meaning, a character that, in the right hands, are extremely difficult to defeat no matter which character you choose to oppose that strong character, or, no matter what strategy, technique, or moveset you throw at that strong character…that strong character will be able to ward off, compensate, and overcome pretty much anything you throw at em.
Also, and this is why I didn’t want to use the words top tier, that strong character, does not have to be recognized as a top tier character by the masses of people, but, in the hands of a player who has mastered that character’s strengths and weaknesses, has TURNED that particular character, into a extremely difficult to defeat, character.
For example, EX Axl from guilty gear,…not really considered top tier by most people, but once mastered, can be a extremely difficult to defeat character.
Lastly, I mean a strong character only in versus mode, 1st player vs 2nd player…no story mode because you are playing against the AI, and that character might have status advantages that won’t be found in versus mode.
