So....What makes a character tough to use in your opinion? Is it where they fall on a tier list? Or might it be how many good versus bad match ups they encounter? Perhaps it's how technical their movelist is to execute? Or is it a combination of all of the above? Wherever your opinion falls, the question is meant to give insight into the varying schools of thought that exist on the matter; subjective and objective. Here's one argument I commonly hear between an Akira and Jacky player. The AKIRA player argues that Jacky is easier to use because his strings and speed give him a solid command of distance and pace... along with having explosive overall damage output without much being needed in the way of technical command inputs. He also punctuates that stance by pointing out that Jacky has a sweep....as if he really needed that too!?! The Jacky player usually counters all of that with two simple words; "GUARD BREAK!!!" What's your opinion???
