Kolin was the second most played character in Street Fighter 5 last month; Capcom releases March character popularity report

Posted by John 'Velociraptor' Guerrero • April 10, 2017 at 6:50 p.m. PDT

March marked the first full month that the Street Fighter 5 community had newcomer Kolin at their disposal, and it seems players have been very interested in her as she's nabbed the attention of over 10% of all online users.

Capcom has come out with their online popularity report for March, so we get to see who gets to sit at the cool kids table and who has to eat lunch with F.A.N.G. You'll find the top half of the list in the gallery below:

Surprised to see Ryu still on top despite his fall on the tier lists? Yeah, we weren't really either. In any case you can see the full roster ordered by popularity over at the CFN Portal site. Sent in by Skurinski.

(makes sense since she's new, better question is, what's her winrate? That's how you tell if she's OP or if it's open season on scrubs, like Akuma)

I don't think many/any characters had high win rates right after being released.

I for one would love to eat lunch with F.A.N.G

Kolin then strikes the Shoto food chain, making the Ken into an endangered species

Roughly half the matches I've played have been against Kolin...really sick of her already. Akuma too.

I wish Kolin had better looking moves. It seems like every kolin plays the same

Well god damn, Rashid must be at the bottom in terms of usage.

Kolin's such an interesting character. Snowball, ex machine gun blow, vanity step, double jump, counters, unique stun bar freeze.

Like others have said, all the Kolins are probably because she's new. I bet the next DLC character will cleanse all the the Kolins from the game.

Played some today first in awhile Zelda and all... I have to say aa jab just ruins this game it's so boring and dumb.

There are a few characters who are just boring to fight. They're not OP or anything it's just... ok let's see the same move loops over and over. Then either lag happens and you open up or they spam it wrong and die...

Hope season 3 makes some massive changes. I'm finding the cast just plain boring at this point.

At least the DLC practice works.

I'm surprised Necalli isn't being used more considering how strong he can be. Guess he's not cool enough.

That's amazing. Then DLC practice works. Hope my girl remains popular after the test drive.

That's surprising to me, I've only seen a couple of Kolins online since her release. That said, I am fairly low rank so maybe that has something to do with it.

You're right.

Don't worry, next sh1tty Story Mode NPC will surely turn things around.

Why am I not surprised that Chun Li is not in the list..

I think you mean 22 is reserved for FANG

blueimpulse said on April 11, 2017 at 8:36 a.m.

I think that Kolin looks like Cammy. Maybe people are mixing then two.

Not if they suck, it didn't work that way for ibuki,juri or guile the first time around.

Xykes said on April 11, 2017 at 10:12 a.m.

"Non even one Juri" what?

Do you really think zero people played Juri? Lol.

Read the fricking article. DON'T SKIM. READ THE WHOLE THING.

This isn't the whole list.

More people played Juri than Chun, Mika, Birdie, Rashid, Vega, etc.

Can't even take a proper screenshot, or at least stitch the photos together.

Bunch of people saw Infiltration main Juri and said "maybe she's not that bad this season!" Can't wait to see her usage for next month.
