Street Fighter V to Get Balance Update

Street Fighter V to Get Balance Update

Street Fighter V will be getting a balance update, slated towards the end of April. According to a blog post from Capcom Unity, the patch will make changes to V-Reversals, throw escapes, and frames on charge moves. In addition, some underperforming characters will be getting a boost.

Here’s a run-down on some of the big changes.

  • V-Reversal: input delay on crouching block has been shortened by 1F
  • Throw Escape: It is no longer possible to escape throws while inputting up during the throw escape.
  • Charge Moves: The number of frames necessary to complete a charge has been increased from 6F to 10F.
  • Invincible “Shoryuken” Attacks: Shoryuken type attacks have seen a change across the board. The changes are as follows below.
    • L Shoryuken attacks – maintain throw invincibility
    • M Shoryuken attacks – added airborne invincibility
    • H Shoryuken attacks – added attack and projectile invincibility
    • This change affects Ryu, Ken, Akuma, Cammy, and Juri.

To see specific changes to characters – including tweaks to vitality and hurtboxes – head on over to the Capcom Unity blog.

It's actually a little more complicated that that, for H Shoryuken anyway. They are invulnerable from Frame 3, so if you are hit in the first 2 frames of start up, you lose.

Don't know why they would change the DBs, but suits me as Cammy player.
