So, Ive been a long time dedicated Gigas player online and in tournament, but it's pretty obvious his shortcoming as a character and he is not getting any changes any time soon.

With the S2 announcement, I think it's time for us all to move one to "Better Gigas". I may play Gigas for nostalgia, though.

Farewell~

gigas will be forgotten for a while, but then, i hope he gets better in forecoming updates or even in tekken 8.

Me too, I never started playing him because of Marduk, never played him. I like Gigas because he's Gigas.

I too will test AK, don't know if he'll last but have played him for a period of time in T6 and liked it back then.

The frame data and tools are just a joke.
Marduk is, basically Gigas, with better tools in every conceivable dimension.

Better brawler,
Better grappler,
better combo damage,
better float/conversion abilities.

He can use his rage drive to extend combo damage (better comeback damage) with one launch he can reduce an opponant on 120 damage of health into a "mix up for the round" on rage. Or kill them outright from below 90 HP (around half-life).

So his damage is equal too, if not better then Chloes, but he is also a well rounded character with safe mids, plus frame tools, a class A launcher, fast unblockables, knockdown lows from crouch.
etc,
etc,
etc,
etc.

and Gigas?

Gigas has a better i10 to i12 punish then Marduk.

Then Marduk takes back over by having a better i13 and i14 punish then Gigas'

MArduk's df4,2 is superior to Gigas 1,2 in every conceivable dimension including it starts mid, which catches crouching recovery, and wall splats.
Signature I'm hilarious!
