Just FYI trade tu still juggles. From a pm I got:

Thanks for reaching out. The trade into U1 is still there, it’s just that in this current build the U1 nerf wasn’t put in correctly. For clarification, the goal here is to take away Sagat’s ability to do TU–>fadc backdash–>U1. That was too safe, so we tried to change it so that you have to always dash forward. Unfortunately the 2nd uppercut in U1 is making that rather difficult and causes the Ultra to act in odd ways. That’ll be addressed.
In the meantime, did you read about the increased damage and usefulness of U2? It gets all hits on juggle and does more damage overall due to that. Maybe that’ll be the Ultra of choice?
With all the buffs he’s getting, I don’t think buffing TU is justified. He’ll still get the trade, that’s a fundamental part of Sagat’s game and the last thing we’d want to do is take that away. Additionally, all he’s gotten is buffs (tiger knee causing stand on crouching chars so you get both hits, EX tiger knee now 0 on block, far stand short cancelling into specials) which make up for the weaknesses that he’s gained since Super.
When the new version comes out, I hope you put in the time to explore his new tools and devise new strats based on them. The grand vision here is to make every char viable, and I think Sagat is pretty much there.
