Justin Wong talks the possibility of dropping Rufus and switching to Adon, lists top 5 characters in Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition v2012 The Street Fighter 25th Anniversary tournament series recently came to its stellar conclusion with the Grand Finals held in Northern California. With this event we experienced a bevy of incredible matches between some of the World's best players and were also dealt quite a few upsets.

Among the few American players that made it into the top 16 in Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition v2012, EG|Justin Wong was favored by many to make it to the end of the tournament. Unfortunately, Justin did not make top 8 due to suffering a loss against MCZ|Tokido, then later facing elimination at the hands of RZR|Problem X's Seth.

Justin decided to stick with his signature character throughout the tournament and upon conclusion, felt that a lack of tools may have tipped the scales against him a bit. Not very pleased with his performance, he took to Twitter and voiced his dissatisfaction with Rufus, mentioning he may be dropping the character for another in Arcade Edition.

We were able to get a few of our questions answered and received a bit of insight on the matter. Below, Justin divulges who he feels are the top 5 characters in Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition v2012, which characters he may be switching to and more.

EventHubs: We heard you might be dropping Rufus in Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition v2012, is that true?

Justin Wong: I don't know if I will or not. I'll think about it after the salt in my body leaves.

EventHubs: You mentioned that Rufus isn't quite on par with the top 5 characters in the game. Who do you feel are the 5 best right now?

Justin Wong: I would say guaranteed top 4 in my opinion is Akuma, Fei Long, Cammy, Adon and the 5th one might be debatable with Seth or Sakura.

EventHubs: Which character are you considering switching to?

Justin Wong: Well I can play an above average Adon so I was thinking about him but I might run an Adon combo with one more character, maybe Cammy.

I'll still use Rufus in particular match-ups though.

Evil Geniuses recently conducted an interview with EG|PR Balrog and EG|Justin Wong that goes a bit deeper into the subject of both players looking to change up their characters. You can check it out here.

Much thanks to Justin for taking the time to speak with us.
