The Tekken 7 Season 4 update will be launching with balance adjustments for the entire roster. Katsuhiro Harada and Michael Murray recently discussed the benefits of upping the health totals for everyone.

"Each season introduced characters and new moves that led to high damage or wall carry. This often decreased the strategic back and forth of a match," noted Murray. "That leads me to one of our other major objectives with the update. We wanted to reduce situations where players would lose a hefty amount of health from wall combos, decreasing the number of situations where overly high damage was dealt."

We're not sure how many Tiens end up on screen during this ridiculous Dragon Ball FighterZ combo, but we are certain poor Ginyu didn't survive it

Tien has been getting a little more attention in Dragon Ball FighterZ lately as the three-eyed warrior was one of the biggest winners in the game's latest balance patch update, but one player has dared to imagine the character's potential if players were allowed to use him three times on the same team.

That player's name is Shoyoumomo, and he's developed some triple Tien tech that's an absolute pleasure to watch even if you don't know the first thing about Dragon Ball FighterZ.
