Capcom should address this big issue in Street Fighter 6

Though I'd argue that even in its vanilla form Street Fighter 6 is the most balanced Street Fighter entry to date, there still are some things I hope to see developers attend to when they go in for their annual balance update.

While a smoother experience with inputs is certainly on this list of issues, one that I'm a little more wary of is the fact that some characters can end rounds in as few as two touches. Marisa is easily the biggest culprit here, and no, I don't think she needs to be toned down relative to the rest of the cast, but I do think the game should be altered globally so that rounds aren't ever decided by just two interactions.

Street Fighter 6 Evo champion reveals how to destroy JP by beating OD Amnesia

Amjad "NASR|AngryBird" Al-Shalabi earned a Street Fighter 6 win at Evo this year and taking home a decent sum of prize money, but wound up losing out on $200k the following weekend at the Gamers8 invitational when he placed second to Ibushigin|Kakeru's JP.

JP has proven to be a difficult character to compete against here in Street Fighter 6's initial months, and thus AngryBird has put the new antagonist under the microscope to really figure out how to beat him. It seems the research has paid off as the Ken user was able to defeat Kakeru in a recent first to 10, and did so in just 11 games.

Discussing character privilege in Street Fighter 6

DreamKing, Catalyst, and I have long gone round about JP's strength in Street Fighter 6, but now that both DreamKing and I have swapped characters (he's played a lot of JP and I've delved into playing Lily) and run a mile in other shoes, we have some things to say about respective character privilege and the benefits of experiencing fighting games through the eyes of other characters.
