Everyone was taken aback when Capcom announced at NorCal Regionals that a new patch was being released for Street Fighter V this week. Thankfully, we already have the balance changes listed, and now know what we can expect to find when we download this patch.
VesperArcade goes over the patch notes on the general mechanics side of the changes, and considers what Capcom’s direction is. He discusses how it appears that they want to see people teching throws more, but also eliminated any possible throw tech option selects. He also touches briefly on the character-specific changes, and shows some confusion in Capcom’s intentions with their nerfs and buffs this time around.
