Polarized “gimmick” characters like Tekken 7‘s Eddy are difficult to balance for tournament play, and often end up being too weak due to their overt reliance on opponent unawareness. While Eddy saw tournament success in Season 1, Namco has nonetheless decided to bring Eddy a little bit closer to center with his changes in Season 2.
Eddy’s biggest changes come in the form of getting a new, much needed i14 punish in the form of B+24, a new safe mid power crush, a wall bounce on his valuable ff+3 power poke, and a nerf to his bizarre SS3+4 hitbox. A mixture of buffs and nerfs means its difficult to tell where Eddy will end up in the long run, but since his core crush game is in tack, it seems like he should be just fine.
