Lariat's s***ty hitbox is what caused me to drop Alex completely. Too many times it would just miss entirely in situations where it shouldn't.


Indeed and yet this problem has yet to be fixed. It needs to be looked at in season 3 among others things.. I don't blame you for dropping him and I'm the fool who keeps playing him... Lol.


You and me, gonna stick with him till the bitter end. Here's hoping we get SF3 costumes, who need buffs when you can look cool, right?

Alex does need some help, but it would have to come at the cost of damage.

I absolutely HATE the way they tried to balance him and Birdie. It's like everything about the character is terrible except they have one or two moves that do ludicrous amounts of damage when they YOLO into them. It's just super lazy to make a character that uneven and gimmicky.


What does Alex have that he can yolo into and not eat a full punish? Birdie I understand (except that he can make himself safe on everything but his CA via his v-skill more or less)


The only thing I can think of is ex stomp lol it's one of his better moves

I thought his lp-elbow and exstomp are safe on block.


LP elbow is -2 (used to be -4) and EX stomp is actually positive on block. You can just jump and punish EX stomp though, since it has a lot of recovery.

Nothing.... That's why it's YOLO.

Birdie doesn't have anything that's safe either so I don't know what you're talking about. The EX Headbutt used to be safe, but now it's punishable (though options are limited).

What did you expect. A life buff, a few S1 revisions, and safe light elbow does nothing to address his big flaws in his gameplay.

S1 was still Alex's strongest version [something that all the relevant Alex players agree with] since he had stronger neutral game/actual oki setups/better AA options/etc. You know s*** that actually matters. Improving a very situational V skill and a fluff buffs like his telegraphic headbutt gimmick ain't gonna do jack lol

All 2.5 did was lessen the damage they did to Alex S2 since Capcom even realized they might have overdone it a bit

Forward hp is too good to hit crouching opponents at all ranges imo. If they did that they'd have to adjust the frame data.

Capcom needs to remember that Zangief and Mika aren't the only wrestlers in the game...

His Power Bomb needs more priority and his normals need to go back to season 1. Stomp needs to be how it was in SFIII.
Warning: I have a different views about stuff so try not to get worked up. OK?

Even though Alex makes me rage, I'll never drop him. We gotta show these silver spoon mofo's how a working man gets a win in Street Fighter!
At ease loser.
