With Dragon Ball FighterZ recently emerging from the Hyperbolic Time Chamber after unlocking the recent February update, TeamSoloMid’s Leffen has provided players with a full breakdown of what the new patch means for the game going forward.

Though mostly addressing improvements to the online experience, on top of a myriad of bug fixes and the addition of online Party Matches (located at the previously-empty Kame House in the game’s Lobby interface), there were a few notable changes, such as the removal of Captain Ginyu’s glitched Charged Powerful Energy Wave, which allowed him to get free Ultimate Z Changes to his partners by spending Ki Gauges he didn’t actually have, since he just spent them on Charging his own Super.

Certain Ki effects, such as Piccolo’s Hellzone Grenade, have been reduced in size (removing some of the Super Namekian’s invisible mix-ups), along with a fix to the bug that switched the opponent’s controls after a Dragon Rush snapback, allowing characters like Goku Black, Kid Buu, Gotenks, Android 18, and Android 16 to get simple and guaranteed cross-ups.

I’ve personally always found it exceptionally helpful to have a visual aid like this whenever a new fighting game patch comes out, as it’s always good to be able to see the impact of any new alterations first-hand before jumping into a match. You can catch the full video below.
