Tournament player fight with Ryu in about six tournaments and never placed higher then 5th. With Balrog it is easier, Blanca is not bad at all. Since i played with him i got plus points in G2 Tournaments. Guile is also not bad. If toi picking Ryu, Ken, Akuma ou Chunli you`ll probably want to start with them. Here is a liste from the unofficial fan site for the championship mode.
