First off I know this forum may not be the best one to ask things about Street Fighter since there are already a lot of forums out there specialized on the SF games, but since I use MMO-C a lot I decided to ask it here since I'm sure some people probably play this game on a good level.
The thing is I recently made some friends which are true fans of this saga, and I used to play it a lot a few months ago (around 16 months ago to be more specific and it was on SSFIV, not on the Arcade Edition) but it was on PS3 with a PS3 Controller.
I sold the PS3 a few months ago and now I have a X360, and yesterday I decided to buy SSFIV AE for this console. I really want to become good and play ranked on the X360 since back when I played the SSFIV version on the PS3 I was able to defend myself on the online (of course with people of my level) and managed to finish the game on its hardest difficulty with Juri (she was my main).
But now with the X360 controller I feel like a noob, it will probably feel better after some practice playing with the X360 controller's stick rather than playing on a pad (the one from the PS3 controller) but it's kind of hard right now.
The thing is, I want to consider myself a beginner (which of course I am) even tho I understand some of the game mechanics, and I would like to know if you could recommend me any good character to start with to learn the game again.
I read on some forums about these "tiers" which probably don't mean much but they are sure a bit accurate on which characters are the best. My favourite character is Juri but I'd like to """""master""""" another one since she seems a bit weak right now.
I read that Fei Long is very strong right now, but I don't want to learn a character that I don't enjoy (I don't like him stetically). Another one that I'm interested in is Akuma (Gouki), since he's a badass and I want to learn a character that I really enjoy visually. Another characters that I like visually are Seth (but don't really like his mechanics), Evil Ryu (I think he's a bit weak?) and some other characters who look cool visually.
As you can see I'm more of a player who likes the kind of characters who look badass and awesome, so I prefer to play one of them even if there are others that are stronger, of course I want to play one that at least has some pros and is not a weakling.
So thanks guys and I hope the read wasn't that long, also sorry for my english since I'm not a native english speaker, if something is hard to understand I'll try to reply ASAP to make myself clear.
