We’ve been exploring Road Fighter 5’s Definitive replace for a superb two weeks now, and because the tier lists and Twitter opinions roll in we’re starting to see some probably problematic issues in terms of the franchise’s latest character: Luke.


Many puzzled about (dare I say, hoped for) how Capcom may go about nerfing Luke to make him play a bit nicer with the remainder of SF5’s solid, however because the mud additional settles it appears he may very nicely be higher off than he was earlier than this newest replace. Relying on what Capcom needs for its last season of Road Fighter 5, this is likely to be a nasty look.

We’ve seen a number of tier lists roll out within the final week, all of them putting Luke as a matter of reality, highest tier fighter. Moreover on social media we’ve seen neighborhood figures hold forth about Luke’s dominance as Capcom Cup champion BG|MenaRD, Evo champion Darryl “Snake Eyez” Lewis, and the may BST|Daigo “The Beast” Umehara have all expressed concern.

Mena deemed Luke “unbeatable” in a current tweet whereas Snake Eyez expressed an expectation to see a ton of Luke mirror matches on this 12 months’s Capcom Professional Tour brackets. The Beast feels that Luke’s dominance will make him a needed choose for these desirous to carry out nicely in match, noting that this can make issues comparatively boring and that he’s unhappy to see it.

It’s clear that Capcom has rather a lot driving on Luke as they’ve set him as much as be a giant a part of the franchise’s future, probably nodding to the truth that he’ll be the protagonist of Road Fighter 6 (and that a few of his distinctive mechanics will probably be extra commonplace in that sport). There’s a transparent push to ensure he’s performed, however is that this the correct approach of going about it?

We talk about all of this and extra on this section of Discuss and Block, and would love to listen to your enter at this comparatively early stage in Road Fighter 5’s last foremost stage chapter. Do you assume Luke must be additional tuned down, or is he proper the place he must be to realize Capcom’s bigger objectives?
