I’ve gotten into Yuri over the past month or so of playing, and I’m trying to figure out why she’s usually considered low-tier or close to it.
Here’s what I think she has going for her:
great AA in her low Fr and st. Rh (from a distance), and perhaps others, such as a well-placed st. Fr, and even her ground special move (sounds like she says “Sifa!”, haha)
good normals: jump-in Rh, jump-in Fw for air-to-air, good ground pokes like st. Rh again, low Rh, but not sure about st. Fr (her most damaging normal, I think)
one of the BEST overheads in the game that is worth
using–toward+Fw (unless it’s dangerous to use it too closely on any particular characters, even if she connects with it!!!)
good supers with good variety: good for combos and the Super Projectile is good AA
she has some good combos, and can do more damage than Sakura, even if she’s not as good a character
What’s bad about her? I know she takes damage pretty badly and some say she doesn’t do enough, herself, but there must be more to it than that…
low priority? bad wakeup game? I hardly see ppl use her, but after all–that proves nothing in this game
Here is to hoping she’s worth learning for regular use!
