I have to agree with you on that one. If he remains unchecked he is definitly top 5. I see major nerfs on this character in the future. Until then, I'm abusing the hell out of him.This is simple but worth noting. His vortex remains in tact but better in my opinion because the low is pretty much hit confirmable now and the overhead(b2), is much safer on block than the traditional overhead sword smash. Buyers beware though....this game patches anything thats too good to be true and right now this character is very overpowering with mixups and his improved vortex. Dont get too reliant on it. Havent been able to check yet to see if b2 can be fuzzy guarded though.
