But not anymore. I bothered to spend some time in the practice mode with Bob and I felt the character is so stupidly easy and powerful that he deserves his own topic. What was Namco thinking?

- His juggle damage (and low parry) and wall-carry are great and if you end the juggle with b1+2 you can keep up the offence with oki.

- His juggles are easier even than Lili's. There is no way someone can mess up something like: d23, 2, u/f1+21, B! (yes, that's his best option before B!)

- His WS21 is one of the fastest launchers in the game and the damage can get over 80 points without walls.

- His jabs have great range. They lack power, but the frame advantage is very good.

- His u/f1+2 has low (and high?) crush properties, it's safe and it's very easy to hit-confirm the second part for ~50 damage and wall-splats.

- His CD4, 1+2 is a strong, unseeable low and it's possible to mx it up with CD WS4 and CD u/f3.

- AWESOME pokes (d1/ b2 / d/f1 / d2 / d/b4 / d/b3 / d/b3+44 / d3 and others).

- One of the best i12 punishers (f23). The second hit can be hit-confirmed as well.

- A throw that leads to a juggle.

... and many more.

tl;dr version:

If you're looking for an easy and solid character, use Bob. He's the best. If he wasn't disgusting and I felt like using someone who takes significantly less effort to play efficiently, he'd be my secondary.
Yes, it took me one year late to realise this, but I never actually tested any other character than my main.

Law's some more advanced stuff and juggles.
To be fair, Lars has iSW and that dash jab dash jab dash... juggle which isn't easy, but it's not important. Bruce and Bob are definitely the easiest.

I hope they die.

Yeah, I've never bothered with Lars's advanced stuff. His best B! ender requires two quick dashes, and even that escapes me.

Oh, that one too. I'd forgotten this.

Anyway, based on my experience with Steve and Lee, in order to do the harder stuff, you've got to learn to spot when exactly the previous move's recovery animation is over and input the next one very fast. For example, I did the next b2~f~N when Lee's head was at the lowest point during the Mist Step.

It's basically a matter of practice and dedication.

Speaking of Tekken, there is a world tournament going on these days. Check it out here:

The SBO 2009 winner (the Lili player) just completely raped an American pro Law player. It was painful even to watch.
