As a Ken player, I take offence to that I don’t suck his dick, I just play him because I’ve always played Ken since I was like 5.(And I’m not just a tier whore trying to defend himself I play various characters in tournaments, well just Elena, I will be playing the rest of my roster when i get out to more tournies and i happen to do better with Elena than Ken)
Anyways about 12, I love him, he’s totally great, ok he’s not great, he’s low tier for a reason, you just have to be insanely smart, you have to really know the game, you gotta practice ALOT!! your execution has to be perfect or at least consistent and you gotta be willing to lose enough to find out what sorts of mind games work and which ones don’t.
Basically you gotta work hard to overcome alot of shitty match ups. I applaud you for playing twelve.
