Ricky Ortiz plans to stick with Rufus in AE v2012 - notes his Rufus is more aggressive and offense-based than Justin Wong's With a number of top players in the fighting game community talking about switching up their main characters in Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition v2012, Evil Geniuses Ricky Ortiz weighed in on the subject letting people know he plans on sticking with Rufus the whole way through, citing that he likes the character a lot and that he's dedicated so much time to him.

Ortiz also talks about the differences in styles that he and EG|Justin Wong use when playing the same character, as CEO|CJ Truth observed that while both of them use Rufus, their approach is quite different. Here's a snip to get you going, hit the link above to read everything.

Angstygaijin: Speaking of Rufus, It was mentioned onstream that one of the top players competing against you (CJ Truth) was talking about the differences in your Rufus vs. Justin’s Rufus. According to him, your Rufus is the more aggressive, offense-based one while Justin’s is a bit more defensive. Do you agree/disagree?

Ricky Ortiz: I definitely agree. I definitely think Justin’s style and mine are different. But we do have some things in common. We both love to play footsies! We also take a liking to similar characters because we can excel with them. It’s usually the fast, agile characters with good pokes. But I feel Rufus just happened to be the exception for us both. I’m glad we’ve been keeping the dream alive with Rufus for this long!
