Balrog Gains a Puncher’s Chance with These 50/50 Setups for Street Fighter V

By on January 7, 2017 at 2:00 pm

Balrog was always able to dole out damage in Street Fighter V. However, through Season 1 it was in a straightforward way much akin to his spacing game in Street Fighter IV. With the Season 2 changes, Balrog is looking more like his Super Street Fighter II Turbo self and less like his Street Fighter IV self. With a few adjustments, he has found 50/50 mixups that allow him to do a great deal of damage, upwards of 70% damage on your average cast member. Between his overhead out of V-Skill and low forward, Balrog will put a lot of players on notice.
