This is Ladybeard... and this is his Cammy cosplay
maybe the real issue that you and i are coming up against is the flawed nature of the downvote button? in a perfect world, rather than just smacking a button that can mean a lot of things to a lot of different people, i'd speak at length with the person who's opinion i feel inclined to challenge, since my reaction to those posts is less 'do not say this' and more 'why do you come ...

words have power, and phrases like "x is disgusting" can have a greater effect than just 'oh that one guy has a stance.' when negative comments represent a group i am a part of i sometimes end up feeling bad regardless of my efforts to shake it off or have a thick skin, so i can imagine it might feel that way for any group. i hope it is understandable that my reaction to that ...

w/e bro i wasn't trying to virtue signal, just trying to answer a question without broadly generalizing

This is Ladybeard... and this is his Cammy cosplay
I often see this argument 'why downvote for stating opinion' and I don't have a general answer for the situation but I can offer my personal stance. When someone posts an opinion that is intolerant or threatens the safety of a group of people, I downvote both in the hope that they can see their view isn't supported, and in the hope that anyone upset over the comment can see it does not reflect the ...

FGC throwback: Xian's Gen was one of the most entertaining characters in all of Street Fighter 4, relive the hype with this nostalgic highlight reel
frame traps felt so great in sfiv, whether watching or playing, because you had to tailor them to your opponent's timings, particularly with crouch techs. i thought xian was exceptionally good at this, watching him delay gen's close mp in blockstrings always got me excited in a way no sfv frame trap ever has

Wait... there's a third unreported nerf for Ryu in Season 2.5? New crouching fierce animation seems to reduce counterpoke effectiveness
in a game that is pretty dull in frame trap/pressure scenarios, clutch counterpokes in neutral are one of the few things that make me feel excited when i watch high level sfv. it may not be the most common usage of cr.hp but it was definitely one of the coolest things you could do with ryu before they changed it. besides, he has a dp for aa, why alter the functionality of his other, limited ...

Why are throw loops such a big deal in Street Fighter 5 and how do you escape them?
even if throw loops themselves can be 'fixed' they are just one symptom of the bigger problem: game doesn't really allow or reward defense(in pressure scenarios), which in turn removes the need for creative, interesting offense

People still love Ultra Street Fighter 4: Here's which titles fans would want to see if Capcom added another game to the Pro Tour
absolutely loved watching sfxt when it was streamed at tournaments. tuned in on twitch more consistently than any other game and i didn't even play it. i wanted to get into it so bad but by the time i got my hands on a pc copy it was dead :c would love to see a revival or reboot

Street Fighter 5's March update will launch on the 28th, Alex released on the 30th, Ryu and Chun-Li story costumes to be released free of charge
Your analogy reflects the bias that I initially brought up, I'd get into it but Aluppoj already did. It doesn't take the dalai lama to not blow things out of proportion. I am fine with healthy skepticism and constructive criticism, but what many (not all) have been displaying in their feedback is neither healthy nor constructive.

Street Fighter 5's March update will launch on the 28th, Alex released on the 30th, Ryu and Chun-Li story costumes to be released free of charge
March has gone by fast for me and I've been pretty shocked to see that people are consistently outraged over information that really isn't a big deal. Even if alex wasn't released in march it's not like they aren't going to release him. In the meantime there are 16 other characters that I know you haven't mastered playing as and playing against. I'm happy as long as the devs don't give up on the game ...
