Vega was relatively strong in Season 1 of Street Fighter V–but grossly underrepresented, and still suffering from flaws. However, the character received a lot of key buffs in Season 2, and is thus looking even stronger this time around.
In this video, Apolo shows off some of the changes to Vega in this version, and how to use them to your advantage. There a lot of new setups that require little to no risk to Vega that make him even deadlier than before.
