I'm so hyped about SFxT right now and I just do not know who I want to pick for my Team. I mean...there are so many characters I like...from Street Fighter AND from Tekken.
I was thinking Jin and Ibuki, Jinbuki or Bison and Rolento, the Dictators. I have so many combinations in my head right now :D
so I'm asking you
- Who do you want on your team?
- And do you care about how they look, due to character customizations?

Nice topic, I look forward to the answers!

In a perfect world, I'd only play one character. I love love LOVE that they have co-op gameplay and I would love for it to become the standard at tournament levels. It's just spectacularly awesome that it's available.

However, I know that's not realistic. I don't have any local friends that play fighting games and it's too inconvenient to try to team up with somebody online and actively play. Tournament play will continue being 1v1 at the topmost level, 2v2 might form a crowd but it will always be below 1v1.

===
- Who do you want on your team?

I've put a lot of thought into this and I'm still not sure. Ken is the only shoe-in at the moment; as my favorite SF character and somebody I'm comfortable controlling, he's going to be my anchor while I experiment with other characters.

Speaking of, I still don't know exactly where I want to start auditions for a second character. I really want it to be a Tekken character, but that's as far as I can narrow it down unfortunately. I've watched a lot of SFxT streams and footage but I just don't think any of it is doing the Tekken characters much justice. Even when players do well with the characters, I just don't feel like it gives a good representation of what they're capable of because, well, we really don't know how they play. Street Fighter characters have a pretty well established history of what they can do, but Tekken characters are a whole new spectrum to explore.

So, that said I'm just going to have to mess around with them. I'm probably going to start with Asuka since I keep hearing good things about her, then I'll expand and test with Jin, Kazuya, Paul, and Xiaoyu.

However, the one character I'd really like to use is Lars, but he isn't available at launch. When he is available though, I'm going to try my best to make him work with Ken, as that'd be the dream team. I'm not going to force it though, if he doesn't work out then he doesn't work out. I'm not going to let my performance suffer for the sake of favoritism. And on the subject of DLC characters, I've always enjoyed Sakura so I'll probably try to make a decent team with her too starting with Kazuya.

So, recap:
At launch: Ken/Asuka(?)
Down the line: Ken/Lars, Sakura/Kazuya(?)

- And do you care about how they look, due to character customizations?

For the most part, no. If I have a problem with a character's appearance, it certainly isn't something a color swap is going to fix! Concerning the characters I'm going to use, I'll probably change their outfit colors every now and again to mix it up. I likely won't be changing things like skin or hair color though, because like I said I don't really have an issue with the appearances at large.

Sorry if this post was a bit..long, but I'm also super hyped and needed to type!

I'm gonna pick my fav. SF en Tekken characters first to see if I like their playing style in this game. Bison, Yoshi, Hoomerang (you know who I mean) and Cody (DLC).

I'll probably give my characters a black/green color.

I kinda wish Urien from 3rd Strike was in this game. His style is similar to Bison's and pairing those two up would be sweet.

I love Tekken, and some of my included favs are Hwaorang, Steve and Lili. So I'll probably use those. I just wished they included Lee. :(

For me i think i will use a combination of my top 4 main characters.

Blanka (DLC)
Ryu
Hwoarang
Steve

Im peeved Blanka isn't in the main game but as-long as he is going to be a DLC character i can wait :D

Also may have to mix up a few (as i see it) comedy teams like rufus and bob.

It'll also be awesome to once again reunite the final fight (DLC) characters Cody and Guy as there 2 of the guys i have started to play with recently.

lets see I would have more than one combination since theirs more than 2 characters I like from both games, so after some thinking Ill have 3 teams to consist of my original team from the tekken series who i will use in Tekken Tag 2, 2 from SF and sadly couldnt use in MVC3, and then another team thats a mix of both Sf and tekken.

(Main Team) Tekken Originals - Lili & Asuka Kazama (since Tekken 5 on the psp lili's been my favorite, my old favorite used to be jun/asuka style, hopefully lili's move set will somewhat be the same)

(Team 2) Street Fighter Originals - Cammy & Sakura (have to wait till dlc) until sakura gets added on Ibuki.

Team 3) SF X Tekken Mix - Lili & Cammy (cant wait to see how these 2 work together)

aside from those 3, I do wanna see how posion plays out, so if I end up liking posion i may take out cammy from my team 3 and it would be lili and poison.

Edit: oh wow so i just looked at some youtube videos and looked at the list and I didnt see cammy at all (hard to see and pick out who all the characters where but none of them looked like a cammy) so jus tlike mvc3 she's out again, well whatever my teams stay as the above just replace cammy with ibuki. so my teams now are

Tekken - Lili & Asuka/ Lili & Ling xiaoyu (since i like her super) this will be an alternate team when i get bored of using lili and asuka all the time.

Sreet Fighter - (Before DLC) Ibuki & Juri/ (DLC releases) Sakura & Juri or Ibuki (havent decided so ill see if im better with juri or ibuki and decide, from the SFIV i was better than ibuki so im predicted her)

Crossover - (before DLC) Lili & Ibuki/ (After DLC) Lili & Sakura

once again If I lie posion she could alternate my teams :P

Cammy is in this game. She was revealed fairly early.

OT: I'm not sure who to pick....I am lost without my Blanka.

I had planned on picking Kuma because....He IS A FREAKIN BEAR! But I heard Seth Killian say that he is not the best.

I will probably end up starting off with Poison & Ogre but that will probably change when I get my hands on the game.

Kuma is basically the Dan of Tekken. He is a joke character you use when you want to handicap yourself and have some laughs.

Lmao Kuma. I OHKO'd an Alisa user online with Kuma's fart, funniest thing ever.

I'm thinking using a mixture of King/Jin/Kazuya/Sagat/Akuma to start off... Until Cody's released, that is. Then I'll definitely main him along with KING, Jin, or Sagat... Man, I really wish that Bruce Irvin was in this game though. I would have loved to have had a Muay Thai combatant on Tekken's side.

Agamottos?....Well I don't really know much about the SF side, but he seems like an all round fighter.
