Rising Up: Season 2 Roundup — Important Changes for Vega, Rashid, R. Mika, Zangief, & Dhalsim

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.

This next batch of characters covered includes Vega, Rashid, Rainbow Mika, Zangief, and Dhalsim. These characters were designed later than the ones I addressed in my first two roundups, and as such didn’t participate in as many betas prior to the game’s release, so this is the first significant rebalance many of them have seen. 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 character tutorials too, so remember to subscribe to the Shoryuken YouTube channel!
