I've switched to Rufus and I get away with murder now.Anti-air/air to air = 3/4 of people can't get in on their terms. Free damage, advantage after knocking them out of the sky.Footsies = 3/4 of people can't press buttons or lift off to do neutral jump and dumb shit.Easy mode ultra. Big damage. Dive kick. Great range on footies, they are a bit slow but it's ok.I made the right choice.Cammy has a lot of these but her normals cancel into a long range knockdown. Her frame advantage is broken. Her anti-fireball god mode ultra can be comboed into. Fair backdash, great reversal. I think scrubs can pwn with her because any followup oki attempt is dped by her, her reversal blows up crossups easymode. She can take advantage of basic oki and get easy 50/50s. But honestly her ex-dive is messed up.

Her matchups are just too easy. No offence intended to the many talented Cammy players out there (you know who you are).The wishlists of functional enhancements put forward by Gamogo and aadm are very nice. In all honesty however, I would be very surprised to see Capcom invest in anything beyond a character re-balance at this point - the player-base that existed back in the days of Super simply isn't there anymore. Yes, tournament numbers are steadily rising, however I would argue that is more a symptom of existing players becoming more aware of the social scene. That being said, I am all for Capcom adding new console features if they are so inclined. I'm not holding my breath however.Some other minor points:Seth is a monster and needs to be scaled back from S to A+ (much like Cammy).Viper has too many wakeup options.El Fuerte. With apologies to all Elf players (and bring on the flames), fighting this character feels so fundamentally against everything SF4 stands for that I'd argue the character doesn't belong in the game. While I accept a large part of it comes down to matchup knowledge, good Elf players are able to completely degenerate the game down to an exercise in futility with 50/50's. Whatever the case (and if 2013 is indeed happening), I'm sure Capcom can bring a welcome re-balance to an already fantastic game.tl;dr - Cammy and Seth need tweaking, Viper has too many wakeup options and Elf makes me cry. Capcom unlikely to invest any further beyond character re-balances.

I'd like Ken's medium DP to be fixed so it doesn't get beaten out by Gouki and Gouken's dive kicks, and for Ken to be able to kara with a low move. That way, you could do kara DPs with the proper shoryu input instead of needing to end with the stick at forward. Of course, none of his lows would move him forward as much as towards + MK, but it would be cool if it could somehow work.
