While there is a wishlist thread, it hasn’t been seen activity in over two months. I thought we could start a new thread focused more on his confirmed changes and any new tech/matchup information as its discovered.
List of changes from Combofiend Jan 30. If there is a more recent list, let me know:
-Close Standing Heavy Punch: First attack’s hitbox extended downwards hitting crouching characters much more consistently
-Far Standing Heavy Kick: Attack comes out faster (14F->13F)
-Far Standing Heavy Kick: Attack is active longer (2F->3F)
-EX Falling Sky: Attack is active longer (2F->3F)
-EX Falling Sky: Extended Invincibility on Upper Body (6-7F to 6-8F)
-Heartless: Attack is active longer (2F->4F)
-Soulless: Ultra now connects when performed after crouching HP with opponent in the corner
I’m picking up Abel in Ultra and I hope others are too. A grappler with decent movement, pokes and oki sounds good to me. For the long time Abel players, are you staying loyal to the Frenchman?
