If I’m getting this right, Gouken’s lp palm will function like Rufus’ command normal? (Fragrance Palm, forward + HP). It might become a reversal, or safe poke, or linkable from a couple of jabs (holy shit!).
Kongo inputs changes I’m neutral about, they were nothing game breaking to me.
I think most of the changes to other characters will benefit Gouken (as he is)… but it’s a stupid balance. None of us need help by making other people’s characters weaker. They’re catering way too hard to the whining of XxXHardcoreGamerXxX. They’re walking on territory where you balance the game to the point of removing the fun from it.
I can’t see them nerfing Gouken further (but then again if you follow the logic of the nerfs on others, it’s pretty much random at best.)
