The only people that hate it fall into the usual categories of:
1.LOCKED DISC CONTENT BOO HOO!
2.Assist gems(Auto block/tech soured new players and pro players alike)
3.They can’t play it like SF4 so it sucks because there tactics used on that game don’t fly against good players in this one
4.Quite possibly the main draw of hate is stream monster bandwagoning and pro player wood riding
Apparently you need a pro players endorsement to decide whether you will enjoy a game or not. I appreciate the ones that do support the game but even without their support I’d still play the game. The DLC characters have been released(And I will gladly pay for more if they decide make the cast even bigger), the most game breaking bugs and glitches have been patched, the main problematic abused moves have been nerfed, and there is still a big balance patch on the way, so with that being said this leads me to the conclusion that #4 is the only reason why people are hating. Let them hate though. This game will still be played well into next year.
