With Season 2’s release, most players payed close attention to the buffs and nerfs their main character received; but with 92 pages of notes, it’s quite time-consuming to go through every single character. So, I’ll be making some short videos demonstrating some of the important changes to each character, to allow players to more rapidly brush up on their new mains and opponents.
The first four characters I’ve covered are Ryu, Ken, Chun-Li, and Nash, simply for their storyline relevance. Coincidentally (or perhaps not so coincidentally?), they were four of the strongest characters in Season 1, and all four have many nerfs compared to later characters I’ll be covering. This is not a comprehensive list of all changes, simply the ones I deemed most significant to gameplay. I might have overseen the ramifications of certain minor changes, however, so if you feel I left out something important, feel free to leave feedback on the video for me and other viewers.
I’ll try and do one of these videos a day until I’ve covered the changes for all characters. Expect more upcoming Monday character tutorials too; keep an eye out on the ShoryukenTube YouTube channel for an Akuma bread and butter combo video as well, sometime very soon.
