One of the latest instlalments from FGC Translated visits the one and only CYG|Daigo Umehara during a recent streaming session wherein he both plays and commentates on Lucia.

Of the three newest Street Fighter 5 characters Lucia seems to be the front runner when it comes to general strength, (though it certainly is early) and The Beast feels she is currently just outside the top 10 range.

"[A]s far as I've played her, she could be just below those top 10 characters," explains Daigo to his stream viewers. "You know, cuz she has an invincible anti-air and her dash is fast. And she has a safe move to cancel into from her crouching medium kick without needing to hit confirm."

He actually toys with the idea that Sakura might be stronger than Lucia (sort of implying that she may be top 10) but then does seem to dial that back a bit.

He goes on from there to also mention that (despite his status as perhaps the most famous fighting game player of all time) he isn't all that great at predicting tier placements in the first place.

That said, he does offer his thoughts on Guile and Zeku during the segment as well. Give the video a watch to hear Daigo's opinions and see his Lucia in action, then let us know what you're thinking of her thus far in the comments.
