Oh yeah, nerfs. Haven't looked much into those. I'll have to check them out to see what has changed. Haven't noticed anything different with her though. I t can still do what I always do. :P
Yeah, I had one before the game came out. I never had I thought about using her though, just liked her design. Then I switched to Xiaoyu for the same reason. Tried her out before Julia. She's an interesting character, but I don't like stances. Like her moves, not the stances basically.
Yeaaah. So damn dumb. They could've moved the date at least. It's all there. They could've added even more characters too. Like 80 characters wouldn't be so bad. That's all Tekken 6 characters + 40 SF characters. They need to make some DLC for UMvC3 too, don't ya think?
Smart choice. Juri is a fucking awesome character; Pity Capcom is stupid, and decided to knee jerk nerf her. (Her nerfs are pretty fucking bad, yet they ignore clearly lopsided characters like Ryu and friends... urgh) The worst part is that Juri wasn't "too" good. Yes she was one the of the better characters, but was it really so bad to have a "fantastic" Juri for once? Bah I digress...
Oh yeah didn't you have an Asuka avatar at one point? I gave her a shot (I try to play as every character in the game at least a few times) but I didn't really enjoy playing as her. Unfortunately, i've heard from a couple of people that she's not that good a character herself, so that might be why you had trouble with her.
lol. Lars is a boss, and I wish we could use him and the rest of the DLC characters ASAP but Capcom hrngggggggg!
Juri mainly because she's is one of my mains in SSFIV (don't like Chun-Li in SFXT, Cody isn't available because y'know, haven't tried Ibuki yet, and Makoto isn't in in this game :( ), and she got a lot better. That anti-air, godlike.
I played Asuka before Julia, but I didn't like playing her online because it was harder to start combos, so I began trying out different characters and ended up with Julia. Her combos are not that hard to perform offline or online while she hits hard, like you said. She's perfect for me. Never thought so when I saw her the first time.
I'll probably pick up Alisa and Lars later on, and maybe Cody. Alisa is my main in Tekken (she hits even harder than Julia, just so you know ;P), while Lars because, y'know, a swede got to play as THE swede of the fighting world (only swede ever in a SF game too).
Yeah I like it a ton, but those new auto block gems basically killed the game for me (at least until they get patched).
I use Rolento / Julia. Yeah Rolento is kind of cheesy in this game, but I genuinely like him., and Julia is a fucking beast. On top of having 1000 health (FUK ur CAPCOM health stereotypes!) she hits like a goddamn TRUCK. Her moveset is similar to Yun's (my main from SSF4) so I feel at home with her. I would have been running Bryan Fury / Alisa as a secondary team if Capcom weren't greedy fucks. Ah well...!
