So, today we discuss the laughing Japanese man

I have absolutely 0 experience against good Hachi players, because from what I've seen so far they pretty much don't exist, so I'm hesistant on voting for this one, but from playing as him and figuring out his moveset, I'd say he could be a very solid mid tier if played correctly

What do you guys think though?

Low mid or mid.

Solid Mid, no doubt.
Not changing this sig 'till I beat Lucario's Jak once, and Crab's G.cole once. Also, yes, I am y_not_zoidy. I lost a bet to SkeletonSackboy.

Still not that great, landing lag helps him out a bit now but it helps out other characters a lot more. And I think he gets zoned out way too easily.

And yeah, can't think of any top level Heihachi players. I've faced many, but they were low-mid level at best.

Maybe Bombrider, but I dunno if he even uses Heihachi anymore.

Play me, all who doubt Captain Manthong!

...just kidding. Well, partly at least. I may not be great but I'm pretty sure I'm better than low-mid level. It's so sad seeing other Heihachi users online just do Cobra Strike then his square 3x when he can easily get an AP burst off that hit confirm.

So actually, would anyone want to play? I don't want to get too rusty at this or UMvC3. I'm taking a break from Senran Kagura and am planning to switch my PSN back to the US region since the Soul Sacrifice demo is coming out soon :D

Maya high five!

Oh and Heihachi main way of killing (level 2) is highly luck dependant.

Sometimes Kuma is smart, sometimes he's a moron. So yeah, not a very reliable character.
