Ah shit huh? Shang's movelist and frame data is soooo inaccurate its not even funny. But then again, if you're gonna have your whole ass server down, there's more than movelist changes thats gonna be made. Im hoping its the online issues, but if its JUST that.....then i dunno....Perhaps. I think it has more to deal with everyone's complaints about the frame data/online issues.
patching ruins fighting games. Better to let the meta settle for a decent amount of time.. maybe a year before the patches start rolling out. I mean do FIX patches.. like correcting HitBoxes or bugs and stuff but changing frame data and how the roster actually plays is a terrible idea. There is a reason that the top competitive games in the world have VERY MINIMAL balance changes, and then one in a while large changes.. usually called like Season 2 or w/e.PLEASE ELDER GODS, LET IT BE A BALANCE PATCH! I'LL SUCK YO D*(&^
Same with D'vorah.I doubt they would release a balance patch before CEO.
I think it is just a patch to fix bugs and whiffing issues (Johnny has so much whiffing issues that fixing them could be considered as a buff tho )
They will also probably add the CEO skin for the tournament stage.
