I got the idea for this from the Gouken sub-forum, and I thought it’d be nice to have this thread seeing as how we T.Hawk Players are constantly fighting uphill battles and harboring frustration from them. I’ll start.
Idk, in the beginning when AE came out I thought T.Hawk was a solid character, but as time went on when I got around to playing against the whole cast it became more apparent to me that he still has major problems. He definitely is a better character in AE compared to Super, and I am grateful for it, but I just don’t understand why he has to have such horrendously difficult matchups, let alone having many bad ones too. I don’t think T.Hawk…is a bad character, but he definitely isn’t viable enough to be considered competitive at a tournament level.
Like seriously, was there ever a game that T.Hawk has been in where he was actually viable at a competitive level? As far as I know, T.Hawk has never been anything but Low Tier in all of his fighting game appearances. I’m not saying that T.Hawk has to be above Low Tier to be considered good, he can still be a Low Tier character, but shouldn’t Low Tier characters at least be given a decent amount of reliable tools to win? Just because a character is Low Tier it doesn’t mean they should have the worst options. They should have the least amount of options yes, but the little they have should at least be solid.
sigh, I just hope he’ll be a better character when they balance the game again. I’m really worried though, because some Low Tier characters like El Fuerte and Gouken we’re made worse and I hope this isn’t T.Hawk’s fate in the next update. Hope T.Hawk doesn’t become T.Suck, lol.
