i won’t go so far as to say “this person has the best character” but rather just give you a list of all the top players in the country who have all dominated major tournaments at one point in time, and are usually very consistent at placing top 7 in 50+ man tournaments in the last 2 years.
no particular order…
chun - ricky ortiz (ca), flashg (ny), justin wong (ny)
yun - pyrolee (ca), hsien chang (tx)
ken - alex valle (ca), paulee (ca), hsien chang (tx), ricky ortiz (ca), justin wong (ny), mopreme (tx)
urien - cameron buckner (ne)
akuma - hsien chang (tx), j.r. rodriguez (ca)
dudley - vic vance (ca)
oro - jamarr lewis (ne)
ryu - frankie3s (ca), alex valle (ca), john choi (ca), mopreme (tx), datrick orr (ne).
hugo - butch pierce (ne)
ibuki - eddie lee (ny)
alex - butch pierce (ne), datrick orr (ne)
elena - jason wilson (ca?), combofiend (ca)
necro - jamarr lewis (ne)
(can’t think of any major tournaments that these characters have appeared finished 7th or better in u.s tournaments.)
yang - ?
makoto - ?
12 - ?
sean - ?
q - ?
remy - ?
again these are players who have proven themselves in major tournaments w/ over 50 players entering. it doesn’t take into consideration some local guy you know who dominates your area and is real good w/ a character. if you aren’t national, you’re not on my list.
