Being an adult [...] should not have anything to do with your brain being fully formed.
If you think there is a better time to be called adult than when your brain is fully developed, I honestly don't know what else to tell you.

Yeah, it's always good to follow stupid rules set up by people who have no idea what they're talking about, instead of, you know, actual scientists that study the human brain for years.

Where I'm from 19 is a tad too old to be considered a "teen".
You usually go off to college or find work at that age.

Maybe the countries I live in don't coddle up their kids as much.
Or maybe it's because neurologists agree that people's brains are still developing until their early 20s.

I haven't actually seen anyone being like "Maximum Impact is a STAIN and any characters from that game coming back will RUIN THE FRANCHISE", though. That's what I'd call whining, and I haven't seen any of that (here anyways, but I usually miss a lot of obvious shit anyhow).
Oh, darling, but there has been. You won't believe the whining that happened on this thread over the mere suggestion that Maximum Impact characters could return. I'll maintain what I said before about it, though: if SNK brought forgotten characters such as Mui Mui and Love Heart in KoF XIV, if they brought forgotten characters such as Miss X and Jeanne D'Arc in SNK Heroines Tag Team Frenzy and if they revived Samurai Shodown while also bringing attention to the also forgotten Last Blade with Hibiki as an upcoming DLC, it is far from unreasonable to expect them to bring at least one character from a forgotten side story such as Maximum Impact.

On a side note, I love how Miss X's ending in SNK Heroines implies that Iori is a tsundere, its my head canon that he is gay for Kyo now, even though that is not an original head canon to have.

You know, I think this is the single major issue of KoF. Basically the chances of a character appearing are dependant mostly on whether the character can be fit on a team (and sometimes whether the character has something to do plot-wise). This is the main problem with most characters introduced on the NESTS arc onwards, since most of them were made to fill in the extra slot on the four men teams.
Is that even required in the story? Can't people just be groups of friends like all other fighting games, so they can drop this stupid team thing?

I will never, ever get why wanting to see the Maximum Impact (or EX for that matter) casts return is apparently a bad thing.
People like to whine, its just that simple.

Well, Shun'ei is a cute anime boy, so he is bound to be loved by a specific crowd.

I think Lui was trying to say that the Chinese market liked the Chinese representation leading the partly-Chinese banded franchise now.
This whole "appeal to China" argument doesn't really work if people in the west also like it, and cute anime characters appeal to weebs all over the world. If KoF XIV had been nothing but anime boys as new characters, I could see the argument about being generic mobile design, but one character? Nah.

Okay, this comparison is pure bullshit. You're talking about Shun'ei's powers as if they're something ridiculous,

No, I'm actually not. Please don't put words in my mouth.
Yes, you are. You purposely omitted the powers from all other characters' descriptions, while mentioning Shun'ei's as if he is an outlier, which he isn't. Your comparison is flawed, to say the least.

Kyo = Hot headed high school student
Iori = Edgy rock band member
Chizuru = A traditional Japanese priestess
Athena = An optimistic idol
Kim = A TKD master
Mature & Vice = Secretaries
Ralf & Clark = Soldiers
etc

and......

Shun'ei = A boy prodigy with devil like powers?
Sylvie = what, a failed NESTS experiment?
Okay, this comparison is pure bullshit. You're talking about Shun'ei's powers as if they're something ridiculous, but Kyo, Iori and Chizuru have ancient powers from their clans (who, correct me if I'm wrong, were supposed to defeat a god), Athena is part of the Psycho Soldier team for a reason, Mature can cut through air and Vice has super strenght. I'd ask you what is the difference, but I know what the answer is: stupid whining, just like people who play Pokémon and say only Gen 1 had good designs.

Well, fuck EA, they're garbage and managed to make a total of one good Star Wars game after two disasters (though Battlefront 2 did cause a lot of people to call for a lootbox ban, so some good can still come out of that). I don't like Ubisoft very much, their games all seem to follow a similar formula and they let criminals work there as if they did nothing, but I guess they're more likely to do a better job than EA, so, it's a start.

Too much whining over a game that isn't even out yet. Most of the things aren't even finished.

Honestly, they could have solved the issue by simply making WW unaware that it was another guy and then having it revealed to her later on as the "bad side" of the wish.

Immediately.
Okay, so let me get this straight then: they made Wonder Woman, THE Wonder Woman, you know, one of the greatest superheroes of all time and the most iconic female superhero ever... a rapist. I hate all of this...

Because she is iconic and a mainstay in the franchise.
