Brains | Heart | Body

So, where do you fall? And feel free to name some forum member's main characteristic (because that's always fun):

I think I'm probably much more in the middle while leaning towards the brains. I'm much more of a reaction than a reads player and I'm definitely not an execution junkie, even if I have pretty good execution.

Angelus: heart
Wauhti: body
Takamura: brains
Omega: heart
Mirri: body
Helnova: brains
Santa: heart
Epiyon: heart
Skyterian: brains
Pimp: heart
Jack: heart

training mode, os, matchup oddities, hitbox gifs, risk-reward and tech is everything.
Yolo is nothing

I'm not heart.

Nothing but heart.
Angelus is quite the opposite, brains all the way.

Those 1/5 random head butts and 1/10 random ultras...pure brains.

I hardly play by heart, only when I need to in some matchups.
If I did play by heart and rely on random headbutts and ultras, I wouldn't downback 99% of the time w a lifelead.

I only do headbutts/ultras based on habits when I need to make a comeback, like when I have a huge life deficit or I need to have sagat in the corner to start my offense. I really don't use it as often as you imply.

I second this. There's heart in Angelus for sure but only because:
a: much like Dan, you're not gonna win with Honda against good players on tech alone
b: when he sees his opponents have certain flaws he fucks around and abuses it

Indeed, u can't rely on just 1 thing, u need all 3 in order to win.

You guys are crazy. Angelus is most definitely heart.
