Update: The results are in! Hit the jump below to see who our readers think is the worst.

Earlier: Many people feel like Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition is in a pretty good spot — unless you happen to play one of the worst characters in the game. And we want to know who you think those characters are.

Season 3.5 introduced a number of balance changes, and besides a few exceptions, we're seeing pretty good character variety in many competitions around the world.

But who got the short end of the stick in the latest release for Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition? Season 3.5 has been out for a shade under three months, and the community is starting to pick up on who to play, and who to avoid.

We've removed the top 8 options from our SF5AE tiers, so the trolls don't attempt to vote for Cammy every time out (Note: I probably would have voted for Cammy too, for the lulz).

Voters are given six options to pick the crappiest characters in the game, because when we're talking about the worst of the worst, you want more than a few options available to you.

These fighters specialize in suck, and there's rarely a week that goes by where someone doesn't swear off of them on Twitter. So vote in our poll and tell us who's the worst of the worst.
