Will Capcom support SFV with balance patches? (also a Q about Claw)


#1

Hey guys,

It’s been years since I’ve been on these forums. I’m a claw player, back when I was on SF4 Claw was bottom tier / Sagat was God tier. I was very disappointed in Capcom for not releasing a balance patch to address such issues.

  1. Will Capcom support SFV with occasional balance patches/minor fixes? If not, why not ?

I’ve been spoiled by Blizzard (Sc2 player) with constant balance patches in an attempt to make all races equal. I know you can’t compare RTS to a fighting game, but still… The community shouldn’t have to tolerate major imbalances.

  1. To those who have played beta, how would you rate Vega (Claw) tier-wise?

Thanks guys !

  1. Yes
  2. Beta tier lists are a joke imo, but Claw felt pretty strong and he was very fun to use. He is a stance change character now. He has access to all his classic space control pokes in one stance, and a command grab in his other stance, allowing for a more rushdown style.

Yes.

They will routinely support the game with ‘fixes’, especially if it is gamebreaking. But for balance patches, it will happen annually most likely, once a year after Capcom Cup.

There is a Claw thread. Tiers at this moment in time don’t matter. They actually rarely do since tiers only reveal themselves to be true at the highest levels of play.
