New SF4 Update Coming - Asks Community Feedback

#1 Edited by JJOR64 (18910 posts) -

Today Capcom announced that there will be a new balance update coming to the Street Fighter IV series (Most likely for Super SF4). The best part? They are taking suggestions from the community. Every week for the next 4 weeks, Capcom will take characters suggestions over at Capcom Unity. I'm personally excited to see some more change coming to this amazing that gave rebirth in a genre. Personally, right now the balance is pretty damn good except for the Top Tier characters being really good with their Vortex game. Just nerf the top tier, give E. Honda 2395734975345 damage on everything, and it will be the perfect game.

I haven't played in a while. Who is top tier now?

@mcghee: Cammy, Seth, Viper, Akuma.

As someone just getting into fighting games; yay! Nobody ever seems to be streaming on Twitch so I'm hoping this'll renew interest. I'm also hoping they nerf Seth in arcade mode because fuck Seth.

Oh? That's fine. My Chun can deal with that. Damn it. I don't (do) want to get into this game again.

As someone that still plays the game, I still enjoy it. Out of all the characters in the game, Cammy will easily get the nerf bat for sure. I bet Chun might get some buffs, but we will see.

I stream the game every now and then. Yeah, most people in the US right now have more interest in Marvel 3 then any fighting game.

@flipperdesert: check out leveluplive on wednesdays for wednesday night fights. its a weekly AE/TTT2 tourney that usually has very good commentary (james chen and ultradavid do it pretty often) spooky used to do a weekly but i think he is taking a break but other than that just check out eventhubs or srk and they will fill you in on tournaments being streamed.

Chun getting some buffs would be awesome. And do you have that same username as a gamertag on XBL? I'm pretty sure I played against your Honda quite a bit back a year or two ago. I think you won most of those matches. lol

My gamertag is Gordian Knut, although I don't have an active account right now.

Usually I find 'balance suggestions' end up being endless complaining, so I was pleasantly surprised to read the threads. I can't say I have played enough to know how valid the suggestions are though. I played Sakura and people seem to be mostly fine with how she is, some don't want any changes at all.

Whle Fei is Top Tier for sure, I think Cammy is better due to her Vortex game.

Dude combofiend works for capcom now? Man I haven't looked at the FGC in awhile.

How do I get capcom to release Marvel 3 for steam?

#16 Posted by casper_ (901 posts) -

@doctorchimp: capcom isn't doing shit with marvel for the foreseeable future which bums a lot of people out. team disbanded and they haven't touched it since 2011.

Replace C. Viper with Poison wholesale, then make her damage output match @jjor64's suggested E. Honda changes.
