Something just came to me since I been following the USFIV/GGXrd location tests and reading reactions to character changes.
What games/characters have received some truly brutal nerfs over the years?
The one thats really strong in my mind is Talim from Soul Calibur 2 going into Soul Calibur 4. She was complete trash by this point, it was almost laughable that she was upper mid at one point and dead last if not next to dead last. For starters:
-speed reduction (she’s a teenage 5 foot filipino)
-removed wind charmer 2
-reduced pushback on mid pokes
-increased cooldown on many attacks
-old launchers now only launch on CH
-lows can be guarded on reaction & unsafe
-AA/BB cant stance into wind charmer
-She HAS to do an attack after her “evasion” stance or else she will auto flip forward into her death
Yeah. Talim got roasted. Any other character get nerfd into oblivion like this poor girl?
