I mean...there were things that stunk about '03, but, I liked it more than 2000-2002 in just about every aspect. Also, since I've played KOF 98 and 99 to death and anything before 98 isn't worth playing (in my opinion) '03 ends up ranking pretty high. Still, I felt like it had some good potential or was a step forward that didn't quite make it. So...I have high hopes for KOF XI, even though it looks very ugly.
In terms of characters, as Iggy said, 02 DOES have Shermie, but it doesn't have Hinako...so...it evens out. It's missing someone else I use, but I can't remember who...
Anyway, '03 doesn't have Hinako OR Shermie, but I'm hoping Duck King, Jenet and Elizabeth can fill that hole.
And yeah...the NEW new characters in '03 were pretty weak. Ash and Shen were especially (and disappointingly) simplistic. I always try the new characters right off (unless they're ugly), so that's a big deal in a new game.

Anyway, that sounds like fun as long as it's not something you can do all the time. I'd hate to have this turn into a crazy combo broken crapfest. But...if it ends up like the exceeds in SvC, then that's yaaaay for me.
I paraphrase/quote PaGaN 3l3m3nts from Orochinagi.com
LDM's have replaced SDM's. Cancelling DM's into SDM's has been around for a while now, nd it's no different than that. Having maxed out skill AND power stocks will be a task you'll have to achieve for optimum combos. (meaning during this time you can't use all those things that use stock like CD counter, DM, tag evasion blah blah) We need abbreviations. sS and pS are my terms for skill stocs and power stocks for the remainder of this rant. Now...
A Super Cancel is cancelling a special move to a DM. This costs 1pS (to perform the DM) and 1sS (to perform the cancel). A Dream Cancel is just the same, but uses 2pS since you're doing an LDM instead. Now, with max stocks (that's 2sS and 3pS), it is feasible that you could do a combo into a special move, Super Cancel (using 1sS + 1pS), then Dream Cancel (using 1sS + 2pS). That would be very damaging. BUT. You have to realize that doing this would leave you with no stocks whatsoever, putting you on the defensive. You can't guard evade, you can't guard cancel, you can't tag attack, and you can't tag evade.
