Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition title update Ver. 05.031 patch notes

Bug fixes and a free color

Posted by Steven 'Dreamking23' Chavez • May 27, 2020 at 6:44 a.m. PDT • Comments: 22

An update was made to Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition yesterday evening following its routine server maintenance. The game has been bumped up to Ver. 05.031, and the Shadaloo CRI has since released patch notes detailing what has changed.

From what we can see here, this patch focused mainly on bug fixes and correcting some move behavior that wasn't originally intended. Additionally, an EX color has been released for free to all users.

One of the changes comes to recoverable damage. In some instances, certain moves that inflict gray health equivalent to chip damage when blocked would net more damage than intended, and this has been fixed.

We saw attacks like Guile's Critical Art given the ability to hit completely behind Guile in the previous version of the game. This came about from the "extended hitboxes inward" change and was unintentional behavior, so this has been corrected along with other moves that produced similar effects.

On top of that, Capcom is releasing color EX 09 for all 40 characters to all users as a thank you for playing Champion Edition.

There are also a handful of other corrections for characters such as Blanka and Seth.

The update isn't a large one and it is available for download right now.

[Battle Adjustments]

Recoverable Damage When Hit

Fixed an issue with some moves that cause recoverable damage equivalent to chip damage when blocked, where the amount of recoverable damage would be the same as that of a hit.

Changes to Dhalsim and Guile

In the last update, adjustments were made that extended hitboxes inward across the board. This was intended to prevent characters from using actions like a forward step to get inside an opponent's attack's reach and avoid damage despite the close range.

However, this made it easier for some projectiles to hit opponents from behind, so the moves in question have been adjusted.

Check the following for further details of the adjustments:

- Fixed an issue where just the effect remains when EX Psycho Blast is canceled by Gill's Flame Javelin or Volcanic Storm.

- V-Trigger II Yoga Sansara has had the amount its hitbox extends inwards reduced.

- Fixed an issue where blocking some attacks with V-Skill II "Dual Poison Dance" would cause too much recoverable damage.

- Fixed an issue where after V-Skill II Overchain is performed, blocking an opponent's guard break technique with Sledgehammer would cause the effect of Overchain to be lost, even though no damage was received.

- Changed active attack frames of V-Skill I Sonic Blade's extended inward hitbox from 42F to 2F.

- Reduced the extended inward hitbox of Sonic Hurricane and changed the active attack frames of this part from 50F to 2F.

- Fixed an issue where Raid Jump would be performed if Surprise Foward/Surprise Back was input at a specific time after V-Skill I Coward Crouch.

- Changed the juggle behavior of the opponent when Spin Pendulum hits in the air, reducing instances in which a Cyclone Disaster follow-up would miss.

- Changed where the character appears when transitioning from the copied version of Air Stampede into Mad Spin, as well as the difference in recovery time on guard.

We have also made other minor fixes and improvements.

[Bug Fixes]

The following bugs have been fixed:

- The antenna display on the battle confirmation screen for ranked matches, casual matches, and the Battle Lounge shows a range that is one step slower than the actual response time.

- Even setting restrictions when creating a Battle Lounge shows a range that is one stage slower than the actual response time. (This is a fix for the bug reported on 3/24. )

We are pleased that people are enjoying Champion Edition and would like to thank all of our players for their support. We wouldn't be here without you.

As a token of our gratitude, we released a free EX09 color for all 40 characters to all users.

Thank you for playing STREET FIGHTER V. We hope you'll continue to enjoy the game.
