Can't agree on Alex, Vega, and Ryu. Alex hits like a truck, Vega has the best pokes in the game, and Ryu's versatility is unbeaten

Lol Ryu is bad. There's no way around this.

After some thought, I've decided to go with F.A.N.G as the worst character in SF5, despite him not being that bad.

Not easy to use, no DP, no command grab, no X-Factor level VT, and doesn't have high damaging combos.

Every other character has at least one of those traits.
Anyways, thanks for reading this everybody!
Have a spectacular day!

Nah. FANG's way better than Alex and Vega.

Isn't Ryu's versatility beaten by Akuma? I'd wager even the dog in Sakura's stage has more versatility than him.

Ryu has some exclusive tools like unblockable setups, true parry, deceiving meaty +0 and +1 standing fierce and roundhouse tech, 100% stun sequences with 2x ex.DK, and 2F VT2 to interrupt max range cr.MK xx fireball on reaction

You forgot no 3f attack, no overhead, no target combos, no way to vary his jump-in, and no way to punish 4f recovery attacks. FANG is awesome, and I love him. :)

So are people finally going to acknowledge that Alex mains aren't just talking yang-yang? What good is that damage once I'm cornered?

It's lame as hell to get pressured using him!!! YOU CAN'T ESCAPE!!
Warning: I have a different views about stuff so try not to get worked up. OK?

Probably the most underrated character in the game Besides Ed who I've seen dismantle people with ease... Don't these people know that one or two buffs and he's knocking on the door of top tier?

Ryu struggles are extremely minor compared to the REAL low tiers (Alex,Fang,Juri, Faulk, Nash)
