I’ve noticed that more than any other character, lag really messes with Balrog.
It becomes virtually impossible to utilize his strengths with spacing and counterpokes because you don’t really know how close you are at any moment and by the time you try to counter your opponent has recovered.
With really bad lag, charge inputs seem to whiff if not timed differently when cancelling, and it becomes extremely difficult to reaction ultra a projectile (basically removing it from his arsenal entirely).
When I play offline, it’s like I’m playing a totally different character. I’m starting to hate online because so many people seem to tolerate playing with REALLY shitty connections, and it affects Balrog so much since he’s a reaction based character.
