hi every one. I would like to point this poll for ulitmates and find out how many of you really wants the Ultimate to do a comeback and who think they are not need at all or maybe something news. (if you choose option 3 lets hit with ideas)
First, I’d like to say that I don’t like the wording on your poll. At any cost? Really? I want ultimates, sure, but NOT at any cost - so what am I supposed to vote?
I think Shago’s ultimate looks really cool and I would like to see more of that for each character, but the devs have said that doing something like that would be a lot of work. They would have to re-work a lot of the stages to make the camera angles work and even if they did, it would, in all likelihood only be limited to each character on their own stage (meaning you couldn’t, for example, do Sabrewulf’s ultimate on Thunder’s stage - it would have to be, and could only be, Thunder). Granted, if that’s the only way we could get ultimates, I would be perfectly fine with that.
So yeah. Please reword your poll and/or add a few more options. 'Kay, thanks, bye!
A season of two characters, but add ultimates for all 20 characters?
8 new characters in S3, no story mode or single player modes at all, and ultimates for 26 characters?
No new costumes or accessories, no new stages, but 8 S3 characters and ultimates for all 26?
A season of no new characters, but ultimates for the 18 that exist right now?
While I’m using this as an exaggerated example, @GalacticGeek is right in that you have to be careful how you word a poll, as the interpretation of the question can be vague and capture people that may not want exactly what you do.
Also, everything is a trade. You should really think deeper on what you’d be willing to give up (maybe that’s the poll you should do) in order to get ultimates, not just ask if people want them or not – then you’re simply asking them “cake, or death?”
We have Ultra combos. To me, Ultimates simply look like shorter Ultra combos with a different set of camera angles and a few new animations. I think they’re superfluous and unnecessary, as I believe people will treat them just like Ultras, and get tired of them after having seen them several times. Plus, as it’s been said, it’s a difficult process to make the Ultimates usable on multiple stages…
I’d rather see all the development resources put into new stages, characters, accessories and game modes than Ultimates.
I don’t play Street Fighter, but I enjoy watching Max’s gameplay of SF4 and 5. The (Super?) animations appear to me to be the equivalent of Ultimates, assuming you’re using them at the end of a match (or round in Sf’s case.) When watching him play, it seems like he’s seen the animation enough times to make it bland and uninteresting, and it’s essentially ignored.
I think that all the fuss and obsession with Ultimates would be ironic, and people would rarely use them, even without limitations as to when you could. A lot of people use Ultra Enders instead of full Ultras online, how would an Ultimate be any different after seeing it 30+ times?
To be honest I don’t really care much for ultimates. While they’re cool looking and all, they’re just another finisher acting the same way as ultra combos, bringing really nothing new to the gameplay. If ultimates do return, I hope the devs will find a way to have it add more to the gameplay than a substitute ultra.
