I doubt the changes to vega's ultra 1 will be really utilizable but we'll see...at least his ultra 2, cosmic heel, and sweep damage are somewhat back to normal...(correct me if i'm wrong someone...)

Omg wtf why did they even touch a don aside from his focus attack he was fine he wasn't overpowered or anything wtf I can't believe capcom listened to those bickering idiots who always complain about him his play style is so linear it's not likehe has a crazy repetior of moves and decreasing damage wtf man! This is soooooo lame screw this game and all it's changes I'm done!

First Makoto comment LOLZ :P

-50 health plus -30 damage from Fukiage>EX Fukiage>... combo = kiss goodbye to those clutch karakusa victories!

Gonna check if there's anything interesting to be done with charged Hayates (who here has ever learned the exact timing for a L3 vs L4 vs L5?) but at the first sign of boredom KOF XIII is going back in, and will stay there.

Elizabeth = the new Makoto.

Can somebody explain what this means?

"Victory Rose: Added light attack hit/block effects and sound effect."

That plus being able to cancel the rose makes me think(hope) that the rose does damage again? Can somebody confirm this and make me the happiest man alive or crush my hopes?

Fei is ass now, lost alot of damage so no real comeback potential since he doesnt have decent ultraas like other character and lost some tools hes probably the most basic character in the game now.

#26
griever2000 said on November 29, 2011 at 5:59 p.m.

@25 this isn't a bug. The hitbox goes to a certain distance and the opponent is just lowering his hurtbox, allowing to counter. It's the same thing when someone tries to hit you with a cross up: you see a ken do cross up j.mk -> you do your own cr.mk -> makes ken's move whiff

#27
pierre said on November 29, 2011 at 5:59 p.m.

Since was chun's crouching hard kick at 100 stun? If I'm not mistaken, it was at 200 and nerfed to 150 in AE.

cwistofu said on November 29, 2011 at 6:05 p.m.

Changes to Cammy's SBF is a buff, albeit a slight one. Getting a blockstring is pretty nice for pressure, though you probably won't really find yourself using it all that often.

In any case, stop looking for things to complain about when you don't even know what you're reading.

so capcom still hates fuerte I see.fix the jumpin fierce into slide glitch and all of a sudden fuerte "has only gotten better"? plz. I get it tho seth, u can't tell the truth in ur position but u know deep down elf is still ass.u can fix adons u1 going over ppls heads up close but not elfs?his normals are still ass, he still has the worst sweep/slide in sf history that can't even go under high or mid atks and is slow as hell,shower kick can be beat by atks that look like it should be able to beat ie.shoto cr.mk,no combos outside of rsf... unless there's changes not listed that address at least 2 or 3 of these detrimental issues elf will remain nothing more than a char that relies on randomness and the opponents potential lack of knowledge regarding the char.

Doopliss said on November 29, 2011 at 6:15 p.m.

Levidane said on November 29, 2011 at 6:31 p.m.

Anyone who has Pc and a console version is going to go with the console version and the pros that play on pc are going to turn their back on it again.

@41 - stay free elf hater.

@44 - I know elfs u1 can be aimed but there's times when even when set up correctly and I hold back so it stays close it still goes over the opponents head and whiffs much like adons u1 used to.

Compared to other slides, elfs falls short in just about every category. when atks like ryus solar plexus blow and other high/mid hitting atks can beat elf out of his slide on top of its horrible startup I fail to see nothing but bad there.plus with no combos or viable links outside of rsf (sorry but st.lk,cr.mk or shower kick,jabs is hardly anything to write home about) its clear that capcom still hates elf.

I'm not quite sure I understand the Dee Jay and Guile change:
"Abolished counter-hit hurtbox in place from projectile discharge to end of move for all versions. Hurtbox now exists until point of discharge."

Can anyone explain what this means? haha :<

#79: I wouldn't actually argue too much there actually, because even with the buffs it's not as easy to win using Zangief against other characters (Dhalsim and Blanka are good examples). Just my opinion though.

Why is Ibuki getting buffed a lot ? Her most ridiculous buff being her Tsujigoe now having invincibility on wake-up . This is just great , now she has MORE options on wake-up , as if she didn't have good options already *COUGH* Backdash / EX DP into kunai or no kunai .

#88: Seth is bottom tier on Daigo, Tokido and Mago's list until Poongko showed them. And nobody would have thought Cody is tournament viable until Momochi won one with him. There is a reason why Daigo singled out Nox as the best Guy player too.

Which means Guile's Ultra 2 remain useless, insulting, and viewtiful. I would just use one EX Meter on a FK rather than waste two EXes & Ultra bar on FK FADC Ultra 2, and the damage are the same!

If Capcom wants to force Guile players to rely on his normals, why not just take away Guile Ultra 2 completely? Stupid Capcom

Can somebody explane the good things Chun has a little better i kinda dont understand some of this stuff but what really stands out in her new move set that maks her really good and better to use now?

@95 I can help, I am a chun player. Basically, they improved her combos and hit boxes so that they she can get more hits.
For example, her ex legs travels further and her ultra 2 comes out 1 frame faster, plus her low kick got better. This means that she is guaranteed to get more hits and less likely to miss. Nothing about her was nerfed. You can now combo close HP with HK spinning bird kick and her ultra 1 got fixed because some characters fell out of it.

@96 Oh thats Awesome good(im also a Chun player always will be)im glade however the c.HP to HK SBK seems werid to me i always think when i see that that its the cl.HP to HK SBK just like u can with the MK SBK gonna have ta see what that looks like when it comes out cuz ive never done that before or have seen anybody else do it for that matter def interesting tho. What do u think of her stomp kicks now that its easier to do because of the DF diagnal change? To me thats gonna make for some nasty combo set ups sorta like Seths stomp kicks tho im only guessing at it so dont take it for granted.

It's too late, a lot of passion has gone with the release of AE. Well hopefully that'd teach capcom a lesson not to mess around with balance just because they want to boost sells.

pierre said on November 29, 2011 at 11:55 p.m.

@98, It takes skill for a chun player to do the headstomps with Down+MK so I don't like how they made it easier for others to execute. Also, Seth was made to have those crazy headstomp combos which adds to the reason why he has the lowest health in the game. Chun's headstomp on the other hand can be done on a standing opponent while they wake up, not just in the air.

wow really capcom. all i asked as a vega player after all this years was for vega to have his simple get off me, and his antiair back. In other words i wanted his scarlet terror 2 have its invincibility back like in the previous SF games . But no apperantly he dosent need it, it almost feels like u went “hey bison u want vegas invincivility for his scarlet terror, ok have it so u can have 3 moves with invincibility” by the way bison didint have a good reversal in SF2 or any in his case but vega did. Im not trying 2 hate on bison, but WTF did vega do to deserve this. Im mean i hated when im dominating a game and then one knockdown from rufus and its over. i mean he can get in any time he wants along with many other characters. Apperantly we vega players are masters of mix ups and this dosent affect our game everytime we play, thats what capcom thinks. ohh by the way the buffs are pretty useless because nobody uses ultra 1 or sky high claw
