A good sum of people would say bison is hella good in the sense of his v trigger and teleport dash that he has even without the v trigger. His crouch heavy punch is better and many other things such as that matter. Now I have been a bison player for a while and really I have to say bison is not as good. Even though i play him in five and have gotten into top 500 on rank I feel that every match up with him is bad. Why do i say this. Well in ultra he had ways to get out of the corner, even in the old games but in five he doesn’t even have that option at all. Also while other characters have universal anti airs he does not, now people will probably say will his crouch heavy punch but when you look at it that is just one anti air and probably the worst in the game. Every character in this game has more than one except for him. oh what about ex stomp. Sorry that is a nope do to priority. What I mean is Bison ex stomp for instance against lets say a regular shoryuken gets beaten out. I mean in ultra a well timed shoryuken would trade but in this game no trade. Also if you notice ever character has a property to beat out bison whether it be armor or invincible shoryuken bison has none of that. Also for everyone forget the teleport dash it is bad cause of the frame duration and highly telegraped. So here is what i believe what needs to be changed about bison.
- Get rid of teleport dash non v trigger. we don’t need it and its not worth being telegraphed.
- bring back old devils reverse. What i mean is keep it the same when it comes to buttons being pressed but bring back the devils reverse he had before in ultra and the rest of the street fighter games cause it gives him better options.
- Ex invincibility is a must cause if your gives other characters these types of characteristics then you must give him the same and not 1-4 frames i mean 1-7 or better cause you make people not want to play the character.
- universal anti air really this is a must also cause if you give one characters 2 or better anti airs then he also should be able to have that as well.
- No this is just something you might want to consider but give him an actual projectile if your not giving him psycho punisher as a thing beside critical art. i mean ya we have psycho blast but really it doesn’t go anywhere and it limits him giving him an actual projectile such as the one in alpha 3 or alpha in general gives him more options on how to get in especially when you get rid of teleport dash. It makes the character more fun. Also if its ex if should go the full screen all together not just to the proximity of where the character is.
Now all these things I feel doesn’t make the character overpowered at all cause if you really want him to be over powered i could have asked psycho axe to be an over head but the thing is i am not asking for that he just needs and doesn’t need. If any one wants to comment good ahead but this is how i feel about bison
