Since the new game is launching as we speak, it’s a good time to start fresh with a new thread.
Some guidelines I’d love for you guys to try to follow to make it a stronger thread:
1. Keep the crying to a minimum - We get it, X character is either stupid overpowered or stupid weak, or Y matchup is absurdly skewed and how could Capcom be so dumb or evil for balancing this way. However, coming into the thread just to complain isn’t going to help anyone. We’re here to spread knowledge and level up, not throw a pity party. Go to GD if that’s what you’re looking for.
2.** Keep it constructive **- Obviously within reason here, but if someone says something you disagree with, you’re better off explaining why, rather than just calling them an idiot and moving on. The latter approach merely propagates ignorance, which should be quashed at any opportunity.
3.** Tier lists are not popularity contests **- This one should be obvious. If your argument for a character being good/bad is built around how often they win/don’t win majors, it’s a shitty argument.
Editting in more details and trying to come up with a snappier title as we speak.
