The transition from Tekken 6 to later Tekken entries certainly wasn’t kind to Bob, nor should it have been, given his overall dominance in that game. Because of this, though, there’s been a precipitous drop-off in Bob players, one of which a series of strong buffs in Season 2 hopes to rectify.
Damage buffs across the board — particularly on some key crouch dash options — and a uniquely strong set of wall bounce options make Bob’s combo damage more meaningful in the long run. Between this and a set of new roll options, perhaps Season 2 will bring Bob back to the forefront.
