It isn't as meaningful as it was sometime a go but I think it is still pretty meaningful. Like if you are in Plat you are at top10k or something, right?

Pretty much platinum now is what gold used to be 7 or 8 months ago.

To be fair i think even the low end diamonds are not that great nowadays i think the real deal is 20k+! Lp i even notice that when i get matched against low end diamonds and Ultra diamonds. The lower ones i feel like they are not much better than your usual plat, but the super and ultra ones 95% of the times are way beyond me where i can't even take a round from them.

As someone who can't get out of ultra silver on the very best of days, I really wish playing at platinum level came easy for me. I feel like if I could get into gold or super gold I'd probably stop playing ranked at that point and just settle into competing at that level.

Believe me, it's nothing special.

Ed's mix or button holds, close up fighting with a bit of projectile-spice, and rap-infused theme all kinda feel like he's taking some of Cody's SFIV elements with him. With a bit of KoF's Rock and Nelson. It all sounds nice on paper...

It'll be interesting to see how he works out. Kolin's unique mechanics seemed to work out well overall, so it gives me some hope for him.

It really surprised me there haven't done SOMETHING more to the stagnant into and victory animations by now. I really have no idea why they can't at least have alternate voice lines that are made to match the same actions and mouth flaps.

The fact they've gone back and more personality to some of the stages, as well as all the stage special endings, at least shows they're willing to add some thing free liveries to make things more exciting. I'd be that much more hype for new character announcements, if I knew their arrival meant even old characters would show new personality in how they interact with them, y'know? The thought that an eventual Sakura would basically have no interaction with Karin besides a mini story interaction and non-voiced victory text is a disappointing, for example.

Hmm cheaper than buying them all individually, but still quite a bit.

These costumes must have taken quite some work for them to charge them what Capcom does.

I never feel like Costume collections like this are priced to sell. They're priced to make a profit off the people who buy everything... but to really sell numbers once they go down to 50% off on a flash sale or something.

I wish there was a way to add a certain number to cart for a reduced price. SFV isn't the kind of game where I need ever characters costumes, but I'd surely buy a bundle for the few I and my offline friends play.

I was putzing around with Birdie a few weeks ago, trying him out on an Ultra Gold Akuma. Dude was so great, but man on errant st. mp from me into a combo and he just melted. Felt kinda bad.

like SAB says, it's priced for whales and sales
