Itazan demonstrates Abigail's crazy corner carry against Jyobin's Necalli thanks to Season 5 buffs for Street Fighter 5

The Season 5 balance patch attempted to make adjustments to Street Fighter 5 in order to balance out the low tiers and top tiers for Season 4. It's hard to say how successful this attempt was considering that the next Capcom Pro Tour season hasn't started yet.

In the meantime, we can gauge the power levels of characters by watching match footage. SFV Fan recently highlighted a battle between DNG|Itazan's Abigail and Jyobin's Necalli.

Necalli tends to be a rather tricky match up for Abigail. This is mostly due to Abigail's enormous size and his slower than average frame data.

However, Abigail's ability to push the opponent into the corner from a single anti-air is pretty amazing. At the start of one round, Itazan lands a crouching heavy punch against a jumpy Necalli.

From here, Abigail transitions into his EX Nitro Charge. Since the stomps of the run motion can now hit airborne opponents, Jyobin quickly found himself in the corner in a high pressure situation.

Although new V-Skills were introduced, both players opted to use V-Skill 1 for their characters. Unfortunately, this means there isn't much in the way of tire or puking action.
