Chun-Li's super is just going to zoom in on Abigail getting kicked in the chest because he's too tall for her to kick him in the head.

How the fook has she basically stayed the same since S1 and characters like Chun, Nash, and Ryu have gotten major changes trying to balance them out. Like who is looking at Karin's kit and going "hmmm...yeah yeah, she's good"???!!

Ridiculous!

Also, please give Ken a 3-frame normal that isn't a special. I think with that one change, he could compete with top tier so much better, along with St. HK 12 frames instead of the awful slow 14. Seeing Tokido check dashes with jabs and his st.mk was so beautiful, but I'm not confident enough to play with the glass cannon himself. Please Cap, give us Ken players a 3-framer, that's it!

Overall, great Evo. I think this is one of the best ever, and certainly SFV's best tournament. It really shows if you get passed the derp of the 50/50, there is an incredible mind-game to be found here. I think defense still needs a buff, but SFV will be considered a classic in the end, as long as they keep improving.

Ken's jab is extremely easy to confirm into combo/CA, so would it be fair to make it 3 frames? His c.lk also combos into super though that takes a lot more skill to confirm.

Maybe c.lp could be 3 frames? Ken's standing jab seems pretty good because on block it can be followed up with a throw or a frametrap b.mp (though that's hard to confirm off of) and on hit you can do a ton of damage and corner carry.

I don't know, I'm not smart enough at SF to do this balance work. What move are you envisioning as 3f and what would the repercussions be for his existing combos? If they took away the ability to link jab and target combo, I'd be finished. Back to bronze league in a day.

Karin is fine, especially compared to the actual bullshit characters in the game.

I get the feeling Omni just wants Ken to be dumb(er?).

Gief made way more sense with 1050 than Rog with 1050 tho, that was silly.

1025 for Rog, but yeah, that was dumb. For him and for Urien. Hell, even 1000 is probably too much.
