Hey there! I know it’s only been a couple days since this rebalance with Season 3 but I feel like those who play this game as much as I do should already have a good understanding of their characters tweaks.
As far as the general balances goes such as all heavy punches breaking armor is amazing. Fighting a good Aganos or Glacius player is not as scary anymore. Also the character selection screen looks amazing! I’m glad they removed the Season 1 & Season 2 on the older screen, now it looks more professional.
I main Hisako/Maya/Aganos
I feel like Hisako was buffed way more than I was expecting. I was actually expecting all nerfs and no buffs but I got an insanely faster Descent, a Shadow Air On Ryo Zan, and a 50% faster Wrath regen. Hisako is my most used main so I am very happy about the changes. Still gotta get use to not jumping to gain Wrath, that one hurt lol. Low counters not countering mids was expected so that didn’t bother me.
Maya, eh, I don’t know if its just me but I feel like she is slower now, and that is not taking into consideration that her dagger throw speed was decreased. She just feels slower over all. I was surprised she was the rebalance character to be honest. (every one thought Kan-Ra lol). But now that she hits harder I feel like she got buffed. Her new dagger assault thing is okay I guess. Out of my 3 mains I was a bit sad of her balance changes.
Aganos got some nice buffs but the heavy punches breaking armor change sucks for him, though it does not remove chunks so that’s a relief. Loving the speed increase he got for chunking up, that was awesome. Peacemakers spawning 30 frames slower is a huge nerf for me, even if he got more uses out of them. Spamming his Peacemaker throw was about the only good spacing I had to get people off my back. Not upset though his buffs were much needed.
All in all I am really liking Season 3. Can’t wait for Mira, I guess I have a thing for female fighters lol. I used to main Orchid back in Season 1 (never really cared for Sadira or Riptor though) and I just got Kim-Wu to 50. She is awesome!
Anyways, what about y’all? Who thinks their mains got nerfed? I feel like Kan-Ra players might say he was nerfed hard.
