There's no doubt that M. Bison was a very strong character during Season 3's meta of Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition. With a lot of hard work, Problem X was able to win EVO 2018 while using M. Bison against Tokido's Akuma.

The overall impression left by the Season 4 patch is that M. Bison was actually buffed. As a result of this, it's highly likely that M. Bison will be a top tier contender in Season 4.

UYU|Tyrant and Packz of Frame Advantage has released a video that details five tips to help players combat against the Shadaloo dictator. First, they go into M. Bison's overall strategy during matches.

M. Bison seeks to be oppressive against opponents with his strong normals that very often leave him at frame advantage. It's often very difficult to press buttons against him since his pressure game is very strong.

Frame Advantage's recommendations are to understand his spacing to counter, use V-Reversals to stop his pressure, use cross ups against his limited anti-airs, lock him down in the corner, and to practice the common scenarios.

A number of M. Bison's attacks have quite a bit of animation to them despite granting frame advantage on block. As highlighted in the video, it's possible to get a guaranteed V-Reversals out to stop his pressure against certain offensive options.
