Dawgtanian: Street Fighter X Tekken's system changes most impacting & potentially dangerous, crucial that every possibility is considered

Dawgtanian: Street Fighter X Tekken's system changes most impacting & potentially dangerous, crucial that every possibility is considered Offering a bit of insight into the methodology used while tweaking Street Fighter X Tekken, Capcom's David "Dawgtanian" Hinds recently hopped on various stories here on EventHubs to respond to feedback from the community, and shine the light on subjects related to the balance updates that will be coming in December.

He covers topics like Pandora, recovery being added to rolls, community feedback on the time over issue and much more. Hit the jump to read everything.

I had a feeling this thread of comments would produce the most feedback!

Making system changes are the most impacting, and potentially dangerous thing we can do to the game, it's crucial even the smallest change is made with consideration to every possibility.

You all know I love to use Pandora, it's how I even got into this game. I like the idea of a mechanic that doesn't guarantee success just because you activate it, and when you do succeed you'll feel you truly earned it. Just because it is tricky to use, it doesn't mean Pandora is useless, and every day I've played this game so far, I've always gotten one round at least with Pandora.

Stealth change to Bryan in Street Fighter X Tekken's Cross Play patch

Stealth change to Bryan in Street Fighter X Tekken's Cross Play patch It seems with the Street Fighter X Tekken patch on PlayStation Network that enables Cross Play between the PS Vita and the PlayStation 3, that a few stealth changes has been made to the game.

KeithVanHorn from the GameFAQs forums initially noticed that Bryan can no longer connect a standing HP into a HP Fisherman's Slam when the opponent is in the air. This claim has been backed by a few other members since the initial post on the forums.

Have you noticed any other changes since the patch came out earlier this week? Let us know in the comment section below.

Street Fighter X Tekken 2013 - Meter gain buffs meant to promote 'more hitting and less whiffing', patch not releasing until after SF 25th ann. finals

Street Fighter X Tekken 2013 - Meter gain buffs meant to promote 'more hitting and less whiffing', patch not releasing until after SF 25th ann. finals Capcom UK's Street Fighter X Tekken community manager Dawgtanian has been actively dropping various bits of information on our recent Street Fighter X Tekken change log story. Among the comments he gives us a few mentionable facts such as the meter gain buffs that are being added to attacks that successfully connect are meant to promote more offensive play and the 2013 patch will not be released until after the Street Fighter 25th anniversary finals are complete to keep the playing field fair.

Below you can check out more information on Street Fighter X Tekken 2013 from Dawgtanian.

Although it might look like only meter gain nerfs have occurred, you'll notice that meter gain BUFFS have been included for when the move connects. This promotes more hitting, and less whiffing (running away/time outs).

We won't be releasing the patch until after the finals, as not to create an unfair playing field. The game still shows huge potential in it's current state, you only have to watch Tokido vs Gamerbee to see that.

If we were to overly nerf one particular character whilst leaving the rest untouched, you'd have a reason to be upset. However it's clear to see that everyone received nerfs in some form or another, mostly in the form of specials/boost chains being more punishable on block (less block stun/push back).

These changes affect the entire game, because they are being applied across the entire roster, not just one or two characters. We're encouraging a more offensive play style, where you are rewarded for landing hits, and hit confirming rather than spamming boost combos all day and running down the clock, something I think we can all agree was not very enjoyable to watch or play.
