SF5 Season 2 April Balance Patch: Vega (Claw)

Update 4/30/17* The new patch is coming out at an undetermined time as of now. Click here to find out why.

Developer Comments: Vega is an interesting character in that he has two distinctive styles. What we noticed, however, was that due to the damage output that’s possible with the non-claw version, players had less incentive to use his claw form.

With the adjustments made to Vega’s claw form, Vega players can now alternate between the two styles and develop different strategies for both, while not having to worry about a substantial damage differential between the two.

Additionally, the changes to his V-Trigger and EX Crimson Terror will ensure that Vega players will consistently get their damage without fear of the opponent dropping out of their combos.
