It isn’t a surprise to most people that Balrog was nerfed in Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition. When a nerf seems like an inevitable thing, though, dedicated players have to be worried that the character could end up getting killed altogether in tournament play. Just ask Season 1 Ryu players, for example.
Well, there’s few players as dedicated to pushing Balrog as SFV Pro Brian_F. He’s documented the Season 3 changes here in his latest video, while also giving them some context for Balrog’s future. Boxer players will certainly have to adjust to their new world, but as Brian F shows, not all of the news is doom and gloom.
