I’m just wondering, cuz in my area (Chicago), no body seems to care/play competitively? It seems like it’s slowly dying. And everything I hear about (in 2d fighters) is the popularity of 3s or GG (GG seems to be getting bigger by the day around here).
I love CvS2, especially over 3s. The two main reasons why are the amount of characters, especially when it comes to tiering them, and the actual tempo of the game. The tempo part is personal preference, but the character selection is just way better in CvS2 in comparison to 3s.
Especially in this sense. Whenever I see someone playing 3s at an arcade (which isn’t often cuz there’s not alot of lively arcades in Chicago-land) everyone uses Ken or Chun-Li. Sure there’s the occasional Makoto, Ibuki and Yun, but not much else for serious players. CvS2 has lotsa characters that are awesome though. Bison, Sagat, Blanka, Guile, Cammy and so on…
And also, the difference in top tier to mid tier is much smaller in CvS2 than it is in 3s. So in all seriousness, why does 3s get more attention than CvS2?
I guess the response I would like to see is a couple things.
First, where in the U.S. is CvS2 still played heavily?
And secondly, which do you prefer? CvS2 or 3s, and why?
