Also, since when is 925 health, 950 stun glass canon?
Glass canon is 800 health seth and 450 health phoenix in mvc3. This character has way too much health for what he can do.
Akuma is way stronger than Seth was when he was 800 in sfiv for the current sfv meta. If capcom wanted to balance akuma with health, it would have to go down to 700ish health and also hit him a 800 stun downgrade.
They dont want to balance akuma. If they do proper balance to akuma, tokido would go down in charts and their sfv "competitive" image would be in danger.
Tokido would be fine. H e would jsut use somebody else.
But you are right Capcom has no interest in properly balancing a character like Akuma because too much of the fanbase would complain if he isnt overpowered.
Pretty much everyone talks about this button and knows it's dumb. Gamefaqs doesn't count as serious discussion about the game doesn't happen here. I play Akuma now and the crazy thing is even if you took it away he's still broken as s***.
