Does the actual article go into any detail about this? I’m interested to know the breakdown within the tiers…
If Chun is just the bottom of the S Rank, and O.Hawk is the bottom of the A Rank, the tiers could easily look like this:
S Rank - Dhalsim, Claw, Boxer, O.Sagat
A Rank - Chun-Li, Ryu, Guile, O.Ken, DeeJay, Dictator
B Rank - Ken, E.Honda, Fei-Long, Sagat, O.Hawk
C Rank - Zangief, Cammy, Blanka, T.Hawk
This makes more sense with 4-5-5-4, but isn’t as fun to talk about.
Has the game changed? or have the tiers just been massaged for Tougeki hype? Are Chun and O.Hawk actually mixing it up with S and A rank characters? Or is this an honorary upgrade? We’ll have to see…
In a good game, someone will master every character , it doesn’t necessarily mean that the character is better overall. Rankings shouldn’t require a specific person to be playing.
