If you’ve ever dived into the world of game theory and didn’t immediately run away screaming once you started reading about minimax values, then JP Street Fighter V player karamaru has a tool made just for you.
The Equilibrium Calculator for Fighting Games allows you to plug in the reward (or punishment) damage you would receive for several options from a single situation, and ranks which strategies are best for both the player on offense and defense. This tool was designed for SFV okizeme, but its editable fields allow you to tweak the tool for virtually any fighting game. This tool’s output doesn’t necessarily tell you what to do, but rather, what options are the most rewarding in a vacuum when you have no information on a player.
