First of all, I don’t want to have a bunch of people crying about nerfs to rose. I’m curious to see how you all will change your styles to meet these nerfs, IF we even see a console release of Arcade Edition in the first place, as it has not been directly confirmed by Capcom. (No, i’m sorry pictures don’t confirm anything for me and the recent trailer was directed for Arcades, not consoles. lol)
Anyway, the only change to Rose that i’m really worried about is her cs.mk not being combo’able even off of counter hit. Thats one of my main tools when I need to pressure certain characters that like to grapple a lot, and I think it really helps me keep the upper hand against Abel in particular. I also throw a lot of sparks, both to annoy my opponent and build meter. Spark not building as much meter doesn’t directly change this, but I think it will limit how often I land AA Soul throws when I need to or EX Drills when my combos are a little too far away to combo with normal lk drill.
What say you?
