Super Street Fighter 4 AE 2012: 20 mins of Sako (Evil Ryu) vs. tao x mako (Evil Ryu)

Ov3rheadGreg has uploaded a 20-minute video of Sako playing Evil Ryu against tao x mako's Evil Ryu. Sako displays his usual talent here and the usefulness of Evil Ryu's damage options from multiple distances and situations. Watch this if you're curious about the underrated potential of Evil Ryu.

Sako goes into this set with a 20-win streak. The video quality is low, but still watchable. It also improves over time.

Super Street Fighter 4 AE 2012 JP stats: Daigo's Ryu vs. Juri, Iyo's Ibuki vs. Akuma

Super Street Fighter 4 AE 2012 JP stats: Daigo's Ryu vs. Juri, Iyo's Ibuki vs. Akuma Lynaken sent in some more stats from 2channel today where spectators take notes on sets (GACHI) between top players at Taito Shinjuku in Japan. Notable players include MCZ|Daigo, eLive|Kazunoko, Iyo, MCZ|Mago, Bonchan and many more.

The first thing to note is that Iyo has had no trouble in dispatching Yuu?'s Akuma four matches in a row. This might be a bit concerning for Akuma players regarding the matchup. Kazunoko destroyed a Makoto with an 11-1 record, but the Makoto in question is not ranked highly, so the value of this set is debatable.

Also notable is Daigo's continued control over the Seth matchup with his Ryu. To date, Daigo is the only player to provide a significant challenge to Kazunoko's extremely strong win record. Also see that Daigo is beginning to get a much better handle on the Juri matchup, having not lost a set to a Juri in some time.

Daigo (Ryu) 1 - 1 Bonchan (Sagat)
Daigo (Ryu) 4 - 1 Younashi (Juri)
Daigo (Ryu) 3 - 2 Yossan (Juri)
Daigo (Ryu) 8 - 3 Kazunoko (Seth)
Kazunoko (Seth) 7 - 3 Mago (Sagat)
Kazunoko (Seth) 5 - 3 AC Revenger (Abel)
Kazunoko (Seth) 11 - 1 Wanchan Taro (Makoto)
Iyo (Ibuki ) 4 - 0 Yuu? (Akuma)
Iyo (Ibuki ) 2 - 2 Bonchan (Sagat)
Iyo (Ibuki ) 8 - 5 Kazunoko (Seth)
Iyo (Ibuki ) 6 - 4 Younashi (Juri)
Mago (Sagat) 0 - 1 Yuu? (Akuma)
Mago (Sagat) 2 - 5 Younashi (Juri)
Mago (Sagat) 3 - 4 Wanchan Taro (Makoto)
Mago (Sagat) 2 - 2 Aojiro Zabel (Balrog/Boxer)
Bonchan (Sagat) 4 - 6 AC Revenger (Abel)
Bonchan (Sagat) 1 - 1 Mago (Sagat)
Oshikko Jobibin (Ryu) 1 - 2 Yuu? (Akuma)

Daigo considers Ryu, Akuma and Cammy to be the best in AE 2012

Daigo considers Ryu, Akuma and Cammy to be the best in AE 2012 Hsien Chang managed to pick up Daigo's opinions on AE 2012 and its character balance. The summary of them is provided below.

Ryu, Cammy and Akuma are the best characters in the game.

The twins are now middle-tier.

Fei Long is high-tier.

Seth and Sagat are high-tier but have bad matchups.

Every character minus Chun-li, Dhalsim, Gouken, Rose, Gen, Dan, T-Hawk, Deejay, Guy, Hakan, Oni, and Evil-Ryu have the potential to be high-tier.

More interesting things about Daigo can be read at Hsien's blog. Be sure to leave your opinion about these characters below, such as the implication that certain characters cannot rise above the middle-tier.

New project: Community tiers poll for Super Street Fighter 4 AE v2012

New project: Community tiers poll for Super Street Fighter 4 AE v2012 Zombiebrian, with the help of several others, has started a new community tiers poll project for Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition v2012 here on the forums. As with any tier list, this one will also be hotly debated, but we're asking members of the community to vote on game's match ups that they're familiar with.

For example, if you feel the Chun-Li vs. Adon fight is 5-5, 6-4, 7-3 or whatever score, we'd like you to jump on the forums and cast a vote for how you think the game's various bouts stack up.

This is open to the entire community to vote — but this will not replace the other tier listings on the site. When the results are compiled, this will be clearly labeled as a community poll tier list, to try and gather and see what the general opinion of the match ups are right now in v2012 by the playerbase at large.

Right now 11 characters have full match listings built out that you can vote on, and a few other characters are incomplete. We will be posting the rest of the listings over time, but if you'd like a say in how you think Abel, Adon, Akuma, Balrog, Blanka, Cammy, Chun-Li, Cody, C. Viper, Dan and Dee Jay's fights play out, hit the link above to find each of these character's voting sections.

Hit the jump to read the entire piece.

For no good reason other than the fact that I think going to Japan inspired me, I've been playing more. A lot of people might not realize, but I do know how to play this game. ^_^ Playing for a few days in Japan made me understand why I had not been playing as well as I used to when I was playing way more. Not practicing regularly of course is a big one (I don't have as much time as I used to due to Cross Counter duties, etc.), but the biggest factor was that I had the wrong mindset and was doing the wrong things at the wrong time. I'm going to attempt to outline a few of them here.
