Vast majority of users voice support for making Ultra Street Fighter 4's Edition Select available online

Posted by Jonathan 'Catalyst' Grey • March 24, 2014 at 9:38 p.m. PDT

This is probably something you can file in the "not too surprising" folder, but the vast majority of our readers voiced their support for adding an online option for Ultra Street Fighter 4's Edition Select mode.

Capcom had previously said this mode would be offline only, but after hearing a lot of feedback from the community, they mentioned they'd think about making it available online.

An overwhelming percentage of our users requested that this mode be available for online gamers, making this one of the heaviest landslides for our polls in recent memory.

You can find the complete results after the break.

Would you like to see an online option for Edition Select in Ultra Street Fighter 4?

1. Yes. An online Endless Lobby option for Edition Select would be good.: 1027 votes / 87.0%
2. No. The mode should be offline only.: 153 votes / 13.0%

Total votes: 1,180

Needs its own Ranked mode as well.
Perhaps as DLC later.
Those who dont want to play it can just simply ignore it.

It only makes sense. I don't get why people are saying it could "split" the player base. With that logic, endless lobbies should have 99.9% of the players online because theres no rank points to worry about gaining or losing, and it just isn't the case.

People need to realize that the FGC, while definitely getting bigger, is still pretty niche. We need every opportunity to play against other people as we can get, offline or otherwise.

They should do a Poll to see if we want DLC characters once this game hits.......then give that to Capcom

Aluppoj said on March 24, 2014 at 9:52 p.m.

I'm all for Online for this mode as it's own separate entity. But I'm very much against it getting its own Ranked version.

Talk about wasted effort on balancing with community feedback.

Talk about fracturing the online (and tournament) community.

Talk about going from the "definitive version" to "hey if they were playing THAT version he or she would be the REAL winner".

Oh god, what a cluster mess that would be. An already hostile FGC could engage in a civil war over the superior edition.

It could become a SFxT style complain fest...... No thank you.

Completive play should be based around ONE version we can all focus on.

#8
spotlesseden said on March 24, 2014 at 9:53 p.m.

it's online, not tournament. Most people don't go to tournament. balancing characters are mostly for tournament players. I don't really care about balance. I think just waste of time nerfing sagat, cammy, akuma, yun, ect. Capcom forgot people can switch to another top tier. Unless of course, they just don't want sagat, cammy to be top tier.

So what if you nerf Yun in 2012, we just go to cammy. So what if you nerf cammy in ultra, tell me who is the next top tier.

EG2 said on March 24, 2014 at 10 p.m.

It absolutely does not need a ranked mode. That's ridiculous. It a mess of a mode for people to goof around with the acknowledged imbalance, not to take advantage of imbalance for online rankings. Make it a non-default filter for lobbies if enough people complain, but the idea that there should be a ranked mode for this is absurd. It's a terrible precedent to give such a thing any sort of credence. Thank god Capcom is not that stupid.

Online mode for Edition Select is fine. Just keep it separate from the official online ranked.

@EG2 Don't be so short sighted and a buzz killer. It just requires a little out-of-the-box thinking to make it a separate ranking entirely.

#15
nightmaresteam said on March 24, 2014 at 10:08 p.m.

Add it as a toggleable option for endless lobbies so that people can still play endless without edition select. This mode is too much fun to not be usable online.

#16
Sonneillon said on March 24, 2014 at 10:11 p.m.

I think what they should do if its in Endless is, you have to pick a certain SF if the host has the lobby set like that. Like if I wanted just SF4, I set the lobby to strictly SF4, or if I wanted both example, USF & SSF4 AE. I set the lobby to nothing but that & what I would do if this is in rank, have the same thing, but can only play 1 SF edition if you chose that, & the points for each version should be there own points & own bp/pp system so you dont use other SF points, like you wont be using your AE or USF bp/pp's, just SF. The replays, have an option to watch just SF4,SSF4 or UF4 replays. Last but not least have A Ranking system for each of the SF's.

#9 then you are playing for the sake of top tier. Which I really hate this kind of player who ultimately just want to use top tier for the sake of advantages over other player and win the game. Playing with what you are comfortable with and try your best is the right attitude, not daigo-worshipping attitude

TheTHCGamer said on March 24, 2014 at 10:16 p.m.

Keep the option in lobbies but whatever it might sound cool at first however everyone will end up playing the definitive version anyway. Can't really take a version that we know will be unbalanced seriously so yea it might be fun to play initially but everyone will spend most of there time on the latest balance update.

#22
Green016 said on March 24, 2014 at 10:18 p.m.

Just don't let it be playable in ranked matches and it's fine.

#23
zombie_sama said on March 24, 2014 at 10:18 p.m.

Edition select in ranked match will be likely to ruin Ultra overall. The PP and BP system keeps players to stick with the lastest version.

Along with the serious and balanced stuff,other players need their fun too.Make it available in lobbies and that's that....No need for Ranked in this.This is just a 'What if' scenario and fun should be allowed.I don't want a Heroes and Heralds fiasco-Awesome mode with wasted potential.They can make everyone-Casual and purists-happy with the right configuration.Do it,Capcom...we believe in ya'.

#27
TrueGamingGuru said on March 24, 2014 at 10:24 p.m.

To be quite honest, I really do wish it was on other online modes (even with its own separate rank) and even a filter option should be there when comes to Ultra only or Edition mode. I do agree with some of the guys mention about a switch filter & should have its own rank/point system. I just don't want it to be just endless lobby, since involves having groups of people in one room rather than just fight random players without the need to go to a lobby. From people that are anti-social, people that doesn't want to be involve with lobbies with people they don't know, and people that just want a match without the need to go do a VS mode nor an Endless Lobby.

But what could you really do? Will see how things will go when comes to Edition as online options when the game comes out.

#28
Lashimar said on March 24, 2014 at 10:40 p.m.

Edition select for ranking ?? Who like longer waiting for play? You? Or maybe available version select from ST x T for new characters. :/

ZaFuuru said on March 24, 2014 at 11:05 p.m.

If you are a casual gamer just go play some casual games, don't ask for casual modes in a hardcore game. Buy it and learn Ultra version or just buy something else

Just keep it out of rank otherwise you might as well call the game "SFIV Anniversary Edition" since "Ultra" balance build will rarely be used.

#38
Eye_of_Orochi said on March 24, 2014 at 11:46 p.m.

NO. Unless it has its own modes completely separate from Ultra's balance.

How will the new changes and mechanics be able to develop properly with top tier characters from older versions overpowering the newly balanced cast? It will muddle the whole game and become Ultra Edition Select 4

Please also keep this out of tournaments unless it gets its own side tournament.

JELIFISH19 said on March 24, 2014 at 11:52 p.m.

What does Edition Select really add? I don't get why people want it so bad in any capacity. In all of the stupid game modes that developers have come with games, I think this is one of the worst because it adds absolutely nothing. Scramble and H&H modes offered a very different experience to the regular game. But Edition Select is just a poorly balanced SF4. The only reason I see to play it is if you want to win by playing top tier characters which undermines the point of USF4. I say it stay offline.

#43
rlt4life said on March 25, 2014 at 12:15 a.m.

Just play regular endless if that's the case. It's really not a big deal at all.

#44
BadNewsVegas said on March 25, 2014 at 12:17 a.m.

I voted for this mode to be online, but on the real if they are going to bring anything back, bring back championship mode please Capcom. Also no way should edition select have a ranked mode...

#45
Moosh said on March 25, 2014 at 12:26 a.m.

People want it because they want their OP characters back again. They want to feel like their old "abilities" were "legit." Having this mode online and ranked would essentially give them that legitimacy.

And that's exactly why it shouldn't happen. Balance changes were made for a reason: some characters carried the player too much. If any player finds themselves thinking "I wish they hadn't nerfed (character), I was so good with them!" You were carried, plain and simple.

There are two main types of players who actively seek to play top tier characters:

1. Players who understand how the character balance affects their game. They understand the advantage picking a top character gives them.

2. Players who trick themselves into thinking no such advantage exists. It's all skill, man.

The entire concept of Edition Select appeals massively to type 2. Type 2 wants to "relive the glory days" from before "Capcom ruined my character." They are the ones who really, really want this feature to be online and to be ranked. Type 1 might find this feature interesting for concept matches, but not much beyond that.

#46
U4iA27 said on March 25, 2014 at 12:36 a.m.

It can be online, just not ranked where points are involved. Leave legit ranked for Ultra only and give Edition Select Endless and Quick match but w/o points of any kind. This will give people what they want while keeping Edition Select in check as merely a fun extra mode to play online.

#47
tktktk43 said on March 25, 2014 at 12:42 a.m.

I doubt this mode will be tournament standard so if it's not capable of being used online it would be useless. In umvc3's case they made HH mode online only so friends and people who wants to have fun offline can't.

Golden Rule: Implement Both!

#49
tommills83 said on March 25, 2014 at 12:47 a.m.

The thing is, only relatively serious/long-term SFIV players will appreciate the differences between the various versions of each character. Unless the differences are detailed somewhere in-game, it's just not going to appeal to that many people. How many of you really know all the balance changes made to each character, over all versions? I sure as hell don't :-P
How easy is it to compare directly all the versions of a certain character? For me, not very.
This mode is for hardcore players who want to play casually; quite a niche group.

I'd rather just play the most up-to-date, (supposedly) most balanced version, even if the addition of new characters kind of throws a spanner in the works.
I don't think I will ever use this mode myself, and it's highly unlikely to become tournament standard, but I don't see any reason to deny people the chance to play like this online if that's what they want. If Capcom have the time/resources to make it happen, why not add in Edition Select Rankings as a separate feature?

Bottom line: Not for me, but if it makes people happy, that's fine.

wayofBushinRyu said on March 25, 2014 at 2:31 a.m.

This guy said it best.

All I see mainly are shoto-scrubs crying that they won't be able to *derp* DP -> FADC *derp, random damage* "I'm so good!" anymore. They'll actually have to think and play the game without being carried. These are most likely the same people in WoW that cried about having a derp mode just so "they can experience the story" when in reality, they just didn't care to learn the game and wanted others to carry them, then turned around and blamed Blizzard for them not being able to do raid dungeons.

The bad thing is Capcom may actually pull a Blizzard and give them what they want. And they still won't be happy. Edition Select should be strictly offline.

So from now on when I play lobbies I have to fight god tier saggats, yuns, cammies? Only rank is balanced? This idea is horrible, unless some lobbies allow all versions and others don't.

Then its fine

#60
jimmyeatsquaids said on March 25, 2014 at 3:18 a.m.

capcom needs to make edition select an option just like time/rounds/ etc. that way, those who don't want to get flooded with vanilla sagat and AE yun can always leave edition select "OFF". forcing edition select in endless would be ridiculous.

but still, once USFIV is released (with edition select online) I am 100% sure that the usual suspects will comment here on how silly and pointless edition select online is because of sagat and yun.

#61
HardToSayNo said on March 25, 2014 at 3:43 a.m.

Giving us a option in endless makes sense but putting it in ranked would be stupid of capcom to do, then no 1 would play "Ultra" lol

@60 if it did go online it would probably be a option you can select when making a room, like how they have it now to allow ssf4 n ae players play in the same lobby..

#62
nullzZzleep said on March 25, 2014 at 3:53 a.m.

oh you are so right! it makes no sense to me at all. also the player base splitting is an issue.
edition select, omg, implement it if necessary, but keep it out of online, tournaments and ranked.
i had NO fun watching Ryan using broken characters, becuase WHATS THE POINT ?! lol its so dumb!

#63
ZaFuuru said on March 25, 2014 at 4:21 a.m.

Only casuals are asking for Edition Select, not FGC or fighting game enthusiasts. The mode is crap

#64
nullzZzleep said on March 25, 2014 at 4:26 a.m.

You are completly right and its not even hard to tell that.
Of course people will choose the strongest version of any character they like to play. Why the strongest? Because one has more success that way, right?
But for all who want to develop as a player (not as a horseman -like Moosh explained correctly), edition select adds not more than handicaps do, because i wouldnt want to pick the strongest version (i have pride) but had to fight against them (handicap).

also i think this mode wouldnt have many players after a while, because the count of characters used would be even smaller and people will get bored to play mostly the old op-chars.

yes, implement it for offline, then its a addition.
but no, keep it out of online, in my eyes it would hurt the player base in its first months. those who will have played mostly edition select than balanced ultra edition are more likely to retire than Ultra-players when edition select will get more boring with time. as if that kinda person, who prefers just the strongest version of his char, can switch back easily to a more difficult version of the game.
and for such an old game the "first months" are very important.

devilcuco said on March 25, 2014 at 4:46 a.m.

I think giving an option on endless to enable/disable edition select is a great idea. The only bad thing is there will be less people playing ultra version in endless, splitting playerbase a bit. But anyway if there is no ultra endless, you can always play ranked usf4.

I strongly suggest hiding players names in ranked, so only flag and latency bars are visible. To prevent power ranking, dodging matchups and counterpicking.

If Capcom make it available online, many people fight with different edition.
It may go excited, and may get popular.
But almost all competitions such as EVO, shadowloo showdown won't adopt the edition select. As a result, these competitions may lose some momentum.
It's unfavourable that there's different view about which player is strong. (It's okay that there's different opinion which character is strong)
It's undesirable that fighting competition get boring, even if It's a bit extend.
Vast majority want edition select for online match up? That's ploblem.
Fight with edition select must be popular.
And update for character balance may lose a sence.

thf24 said on March 25, 2014 at 6:13 a.m.

No real harm, but it's still going to be annoying when you want to run a large public lobby and it ends up being 50% vanilla Sagats and AE Yuns.

If they add edition select to Endless but include an option to disable it in the lobby settings, it would be perfect.

#80
TwoBears77 said on March 25, 2014 at 6:17 a.m.

As long as I have the option of turning off Edition Select when making a lobby, I see no problem with giving anyone the option of doing the opposite. Ranked, however, should be strictly Ultra. The real point of this new edition was balance, and it makes no sense to throw that balance out the window in the end.

#81
SirKenjamin said on March 25, 2014 at 6:21 a.m.

Idk maybe I missed something...but didn't Ono after hearing the initial feedback say he was considering putting the version select in endless only? And back when AE first came out for download didn't they also have a feature that allowed you to still play super if you wanted? So why does everyone think it's just going to be one endless mode type with everyone playing the version select? Come on guys I'm pretty sure Capcom will make it separate so you can still play just ultra if you chose to. Also how long do you really think people want to play the version select? It's a fun idea but it's just going to die down a few months after.

#82
Breakingbad said on March 25, 2014 at 6:23 a.m.

Ultra needs to be the only ranked edition, it also needs an endless lobby
and any other modes that was intended, edition select should be just for fun as it was intended no points just make it online imo.

#83
youngilethal said on March 25, 2014 at 6:35 a.m.

The funny thing about this situation is that ULTRA will definitely have a top tier character that everybody will end up hating. It happened in every version of the game so far. I think there should be an option for edition select. If you don't want to play with that feature, then don't.

#84
jason24cf said on March 25, 2014 at 7:02 a.m.

Whats the big deal if its only endless lobby? Why are people so shook over VSagat and AE Yun? Do payers not realize they too would be able to use the strongest version of their character? If players learn USIFV, they will be able to use RF against Yun and negate his block strings. VSagat will still have to deal with unblockables after a knockdown.

It isn't that big of a deal, make it for endless lobby so players can have fun. IF we are paying for this game we should have every option available to us.

SO DAMN RIGHT! Probably the most important change they should make when it comes to online play. If they don't do this, edition select is not even relevant to be honest.

I couldn't care less what online options they make available for Edition Select, hopefully something is offered though, but quite frankly I don't see myself playing Edition Select too often.

I'm excited for Ultra SF4, I'm excited to see new mechanics, new characters, new combos, new gimmicks, new everything...playing Edition Select to me is basically saying "theres no value in UltraSF4, the game has already hit it's glory days" and I don't think SF4 has hit that point yet. I'm not really interested in seeing things I've already seen...however I might have to pop in Vanilla Balrog for a bit and do some headbutt -> Full Ultra 1 juggles, just to get a taste of the damage

Either way, I think the option should be available for people to play online and I don't think it would negatively effect UltraSF4

You do everything to not have to play a version where DP is not -5 on FADC, is that it? But the won't be edition select ranked mode, no matter how many people want to see it.

Lol. Would you like a nuke with that reversal?

Online doesn't even matter here. So what if you have an online mode. So what if it's barebones or ranked? Let people play what they want to play. Having a bunch of people playing edition select on console is not going to keep players from training for Ultra at EVO if Ultra is what's being played. People go for the money.

Also, I'd like to really shake a finger at all these people crying about "oh so and so just wants his OP character back!". So. What. Tell me how this hurts you. Explain to me how someone getting to enjoy a niche power level of their character just craps all over your day. If you're playing Ultra online (which you will be), then none of it will matter.

The only people who will focus on Edition Select are enthusiasts who love to play around with dream match-ups. No one's gonna give them money for enjoying their hobby. They aren't going to win EVO playing Super Rose or Vanilla Sagat, or pre AE-2012 Yun. Hell, they probably aren't even going to EVO.

I'd be worried for Capcom if cannibalization was going to be a thing. But the only way to play Edition Select is to buy Ultra anyway. They don't lose sales from it, and they gain more fan appreciation. It won't hurt the game if they don't include, but it sure will add more value for people looking to play beyond Ultra Ranked.

If there is a specific Edition Mode then I'm all for it

Totally agree man, anybody saying it should be in ranked just wants to use that cheap stuff to rack up points

CAPCOM's phylosophy: Create a game. copy/paste, milk the players until the game is dead, copy/paste some more with all versions of each characters. Resell.

I've seen this business model before... SFII, SFII:CE, SFII:T, SSFII, SSFII:T, SF:Anniversary (all version combined)...

Maybe they need to rethink their business strategies.

1- EVO,Topanga, and whatever tournament you can name is less than 1% of the players of this game, so no, the can't do something just based on this small percetange, this is business and that's because even though they know some decisions are bad like nerfing/buffing specific characters, they still do it if that's the majority, wants, after all, they just want to sell...

2- They can add this feature, but this should come along with an option for you to filter it, like the current Super/AE filter
