"Phoenix is a huge crutch character. She is also the weakpoint on the teams of most people that use her. I even think she is the weak point on Clock’s team. She is very swingy and a lot of people do not know what to do against her, however it is clear there are already a lot of answers to her and at high level she is not very good at all. We even saw her activation countered by Weapon X and numerous times she was killed with snap backs. New tech is being found constantly that flat out makes her a wasted slot on people’s teams.
Truthfully, nerfing her in Ultimate is a huge mistake. There already were so many tools added to the game to help counter her (TAC meter drain for instance, and the nerf to X-Factor) that nerfing her health and her ability to spam fireballs is actually overkill. Combined with how much new stuff is being found in this game constantly, nerfing her will put her down to low tier. This is a serious waste of what was otherwise the most unique character in the game. "
Seriously, THIS! I feel like if you’re gonna make Phoenix such a good tool in the game, why not keep her that way? Sure she was OP in SOME aspects, but if you’re going to nerf her, don’t nerf her to the point where she’s GARBAGE. That destroys the whole purpose of making her high tier to begin with. I feel like Capcom’s response to the fans is only to make the good characters bad and the bad characters SLIGHTLY better. Makes no sense. :shake: “SSF4 AE: Version 2012”? Srsly, ppl? Let the game die already. Pray God it doesn’t happen to MvC3. Next thing you know, we’ll hear ppl whining about Captain American and Morrigan. Don’t let it happen, people. Stop b*tching!
