A.K.I. has been in the hands of Street Fighter 6 players for a few weeks now already, and they definitely don’t seem to think she’s the best in the game.
Legendary fighting game pro CLO|Justin Wong just released his own A.K.I. match up chart for SF6 after putting in quite a bit of time with the character (and being the first person to take her to Master rank).
Starting out with Zangief, Wong interestingly puts the grappler as one of A.K.I.’s worst battles in the game because he can almost end her off of one good jump in with his ability to option select her wakeup options.
Up against arguably the best character in SF6 right now, Justin has the poison user going even with JP using her good mid-range pokes and draining options to shut down a lot of his zoning or slide in from full screen if he’s trying to keep away.
In some big breaks from WRZT|Nemo’s match up chart for A.K.I., the mutli-game Evo champion feels the new DLC actually defeats the likes of Juri, Manon, Ryu and Dee Jay.
That being said, however, he still has her getting her butt kicked pretty hard by Marisa, Luke and Ken too.
Overall, Justin seems to have a much more balanced impression of A.K.I. compared to Nemo, who pretty much has her at the bottom of the barrel in his new tier list.
You can check out Justin Wong’s full A.K.I. match up chart below as well as his breakdown video going over all of his picks in more detail too.
