Not the Arcade edition. Just Street Fighter V. Even if it takes me a year idgaf. The less money I have to spend the better.

In theory yes. However, it's going to take a very long time to do so (most likely more than a year). You'd be better off buying a new copy of Arcade Edition and starting from there...

No. Some things are premium-only.

And at this point, it'll probably take you more than a year, it's far to late for that, holmes.
I hold you accountable for any damage done to my floof!

Thanks. It’s on sale on Steam for about another hour. Still debating whether I want to support this crap that video game companies do to their consumers in modern times.

Yeah, it was much better when they'd dick us with full priced retail release updates every few years...

Not recommended unless you are a sf player and not new to the franchise and like one of the original 16 as your main.
Or if you have a specific dlc character you will only play because you can get the initial fight money for one character pretty easily off the base 16.
But if you want everything and not specific characters then this game will have released a ultimate edition or you can have unlocked with arcade edition that includes 16 plus six season 1 characters and 6 season 2 characters which would Provide enough free money err I mean fight money to unlock the 6 from season 3.

It really depends on how seriously you want to play.
If barely at all then base is fine but if you want to play it in reality arcade edition is quite the deal.
Just buy arcade edition and not hate yourself in a few months personally though.
It’s not worth the time it’s going to take you for that minuscule amount of money saved.
Your looking at about 1500 hours played just to catch up on what arcade edition offers you.
Maybe less but more then likely more then that with fm changes on arcade edition release.

No, you definitely cannot.

Even before AE, only 1% of players could afford every character using FM alone, and the FM has been can in half since then. And those that did literally had to get lucky in rolling the dice.

So even without costumes and stages, there is absolutely no chance of getting every character.

And all the DLC comes to nearly $700, by the way.

No, unless all you do is play SFV for the next 6 years or so.

I used fm to get all the season 1 & 2 characters, all colors for my mains and a few story mode skins i like. It took a very, very long time. With the changes to fm gains in AE, no way id be able to do it from scratch now. I bought the season 3 pass and should have enough for most of season 4 depending on how quickly they release.
