The 2.0 update to BlazBlue: Central Fiction just hit arcades in Japan (as well as cabinets around the world that use the NESICA Live system), so players are busy discovering the changes. Beyond what’s said in the patch notes, it turns out that there’s quite a lot of new things to discover. Sometimes, some very small modifications can completely alter or enable brand new tech. Here’s a sample of some of the interesting changes players found so far:
Here’s an important universal change: as stated in the BlazBlue patch notes, Exceed Accel attacks are a lot less safe now. If blocked, they are “at least -9 frames,” according to Minami. You’re also in counter-hit state.

Here’s a new deathloop from Hakumen. It’s all the same to the receiving player, isn’t it?

In case you were curious: yes, Carl can still do unblockable loops on you. They cost more resources though, and do less damage.
