Despite CYG|Daigo previously confirming that he'll be sticking with Guile in Street Fighter 5, he's been having a lot of fun with Ryu and Kage. Notably, these two fighters received some very helpful buffs in Season 5.

Recently, SFV Fan uploaded footage of Daigo using Kage. During the video, Daigo finds himself going up against Ultimate Grand Master Guile and Ken players.

It appears that Daigo prefers Kage's V-Skill 1 over the newly added V-Skill 2. This gives him the ability to armor through attacks when the opponent believes it's their turn.

As for Daigo's opponents, the Ken user went with V-Skill 1 while Guile opted to use V-Skill 2. You can get a general idea of how effective Guile's air fireball is during the matches.

It appears to be a little difficult for Daigo to fight Guile since his only way to compete against Guile's Sonic Booms are with the red fireballs, which require some start up time.

Luckily, we see the difference that the Kage buffs are able to make. Since Kage's close-ranged EX fireball is now plus on block, Daigo is able to keep the pressure going for a longer period of time.
