Akuma is so strong he's been banned from Super Turbo competition, but you can play him in Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection ranked mode

And you thought online Blanka was annoying...

While most of us are waiting these last few days to get our hands on Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection, some players (like dWo: Dudley World Order) already have it.

Normally we'd be jealous and just leave mean comments on such a player's YouTube page, but dWo has shared with us a bit of interesting information that's worth talking about.

You can reportedly play as Akuma, a character regarded as so overpowered he's been banned at most all competitive Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo events for the better part of the last three decades, in ranked play.

As seen in the video below, players are able to play as the demonic shoto online, meaning it's more than likely we'll see a plethora of Akumas as people instantly flock to the broken character.

We're hesitant to lose too much sleep over this, however, as there very well could be an option for players to avoid any and all Akuma users while searching for online matches.

We'll find out exactly what's going on in this avenue once the game drops on May 29th, but for now check out the video and leave a nice YouTube comment.
