CHARACTER INTRODUCTION

So, in case you were wondering 'TrollBetter' is an ironic and, in retrospect, possibly misjudged title. Referencing the fact that, if I did play online and wanted only to win games and rank up. I'd be employing tactics that many people would consider to be 'trolling' or 'cheap' (like infinites and glitches).

CEO and EVO 2011 pick up Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition

CEO and EVO 2011 pick up Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition It was announced today that CEO and EVO 2011 will be picking up Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition. Also, VegaMan noted that the NorCal Regionals will also be using AE, along with the Shadowloo Showdown in Australia.

Scheduled for a DLC release on June 7, 2011, some of the top players in the community have been practicing on the arcade release for some time now, and there should be some great matches.

Other events will likely follow suit and you should expect to see Arcade Edition as the dominate tournament game in the Street Fighter 4 series soon after its released.
