Hypespotting playing Season 2? Why?

I’m watching the KI finals and it looks like they’re playing S2 (no flipout after combo breakers, no level 4 enders, etc.). Any idea why that is?

What KI finals?

In the subject. Hypespotting. It’s a Scottish tournament, a ranking event for Capcom Pro Tour, but also has many other fighting games, KI included.

I couldnt say. Maybe for tournament sake because the patch just came out.
