Earlier in the week, the people's champ spoke with us about his TFC performance and his days as a competitive player. Tonight, however, we have a special treat: Mike Ross tells us who he feels are the best/worst characters in Ultra Street Fighter 4.


Although there are a few characters on this list that may not surprise you, Ross does have a number of interesting picks sitting among his selection.

We've already heard from Ross on Twitter that Dee Jay is the worst character in the game, and this wouldn't be a "best characters" list if Evil Ryu didn't make the cut. Still, Mike chose quite a few fighters that he thinks are solid in USF4, and some that he feels aren't so hot.

We don't want to give too much away, so go ahead and hit that jump to find out the rest!

DreamKing: Since you created a tier ranking for E. Honda here on EventHubs, we know how you feel about the character's specific match-ups. But who do you think are the best/worst characters in the entire game?

Mike Ross: Honda is ass. He has a lot of bad matchups. That is a given. Even Hoodaman got a Decapre, Cuongster has a Yun. I'm the only dumbass not adapting. But I digress, I think the best and most SOLID characters in the game are (in no particular order):

Evil Ryu
Yun
Rose
Fei Long
Ibuki
Poison
Adon
*Elena (I don't know why on earth people think she's bottom 5).

Worst characters sadly are:
DeeJay
Dan
Honda
Dhalsim
Blanka (Congrats Nishikin. But Blanka gets bopped over in the states, unfortunately.)

My tier lists are always unpopular but in time the people will believe me, damnit! Thanks for reading and letting me waste part of your day.

Question from the editor: So how do you feel about this Ultra Street Fighter 4 best/worst list? Do you agree with Mike or disagree? Let us know in the comments below.

Big thanks to Mike for taking the time to talk to us.
