Also, there are two qualities people often overlook; his tatsu assist is pretty much the same as Akuma's, and his role as anchor is pretty fantastic, made even better by his now-mashable Shinku Hadoken.
His tatsu assist is nothing like akumas, it gets destroyed by any projectile while akumas negates all low and medium projectiles.
I have mained ryu since vanilla and even with the buffs he got he is a low B tier character(B-)
Pros: good normals, air light tatsu, shoryuken is invicible and can be made safe with a super, hits very hard and can deal 900k+ with 2 meters, beam super, invicible level 1 super
Cons:his mobility is a bit lacking. Dejin mode takes away his life and is super short, He gets destroyed by zoners, his beam super has 19 frame start up which makes it hard to punish some zoners. bad zoning.
