Infiltration: Regardless of balance's evolution, I feel a new version of Super Street Fighter 4 is necessary

Infiltration: Regardless of balance's evolution, I feel a new version of Super Street Fighter 4 is necessary Western Wolves' Ryan Hart, posted an interview with Infiltration over on their website. A lot of topics are covered from different tournaments such as Evolution to Seasons Beatings followed by how he prepared for the MCZ|Daigo matchup, his weekly hours spent training, advice for new players and much more.

Ryan Hart: Do you think SSF4 AE2012 has a good enough balance or do we need a new version?

Infiltration: I feel balance is a subjective matter that is constantly evolving, but regardless of balance, I feel a new version is necessary. I want to see some new characters (Rolento!) and some additional system features for better tournament play.

Ryan Hart: What advice would you give to players who wish to be strong enough to enter a tournament like EVO and do well? How can they be better players?

Infiltration: Often times, a loss will strengthen and benefit the player more than a win, so I would say don't be afraid of losing and keeping competing.
