Granblue Fantasy Versus 2.01 balance change Patch Notes released

Buffs and nerfs going around everywhere with Belial's arrival

Posted by Nicholas 'MajinTenshinhan' Taylor • September 23, 2020 at 5:05 a.m. PDT • Comments: 30

Update: This story has been updated with full balance change patch notes for Granblue Fantasy Versus' 2.01 patch.

With this week seeing the arrival of Belial and the start of Season 2 for Granblue Fantasy Versus (more specifically, this is set to happen tomorrow it's hardly a surprise that we're getting the patch notes for the massive update right before it goes live.

This new update will add Belial to the game, some new story content together with him as well as a reset to the online ranked mode. The biggest thing people have been wondering about, though, is of course the balance changes. They've been released on the Japanese website officially and are being translated by myself for this article.

System Changes

Cooldown Time
• Has been overhauled entirely. As a general rule, cooldowns from easy inputs have been lowered but attacks with invincibility and a few other exceptions have been made longer instead.

Standing block, standing damage taken, crouching block, crouching damage taken
• The hurtbox during movement has been enlarged in front of the character. Because of this change, there will be less inconsistencies between different characters' combos and it should be easier to hit your opponent from a further distance.

Face up falling hurtbox
• Percival, Beelzebub, Soriz and Zooey had a bigger hurtbox around their leg area which has now been shrunk.

Face down falling hurtbox
• Metera, Ferry, Zeta, Narmaya, Djeeta and Zooey had hurtboxes placed higher than others while falling which has now been lowered in height. Because of this change, their hurtboxes should match their models more.

Forward jump
• Increased the distance travelled (except for Lancelot, Metera, Ferry and Zeta). This change only affects regular jumps and will not change anything for high jumps.

Wakeup
• When waking up and having to turn around to face your opponent, even if you inputted a crouching guard the character would first stand up briefly to turn around. It was just for a moment, but this would make your character have a higher hurtbox than intended, so in these situations the game will now prioritize crouch blocking if input.

Recovery
• For characters who don't rise up when recovering (Percival, Ladiva, Ferry, Vaseraga) we made some changes. We made it easier to visually discern whether they're recovering regularly or backwards when in the corner. This has no effect on the actual properties of said recovery.

Counter hits
• Changed the text color for "Counter!" and "Crush!" to red to make it easier to discern during a match.
• For moves like close lights and crouching lights which didn't have any change in properties whether they were counter hits or regular hits, we've increased the hitstop on counter hits. Because of this change, it should now be easier to land followup hits when you get a counter hit even on moves such as these.
• For abilities in which counter hits had exceptionally long hitstop, we've toned it down and shortened it. Because of these changes, followups to counter hits may have changed in certain situations.

Close standing light, far standing light, crouching light
• The chain timing has been made faster, so for example crouching light to crouching light will now be considered a blockstring (with certain exceptions).
• Close standing lights and crouching lights can now be chained together up to twice (with certain exceptions).

Autocombos (first hit)
• Will no longer come out if inputting down light or down forward light. Because of this change, it will now be easier to get close standing light to crouching light from chaining.

Jump attacks in general
• Pushback on block has been decreased (with certain exceptions).

Throws
• Meter gain has been normalized for all characters' throws.
• Scaling has been increased. Because of this change, moves that combo after throws will now do less damage. (There has been no change to throw damage itself)

Grounded throw teching
• Distance to opponent after a teched throw has been normalized across the cast.
• After being grabbed by the opponent, if you input "Dodge" or "Dodge Roll" during that time you will be forced into a late grab tech.
• The time window for a regular throw tech has been increased and the window for a late throw tech has been decreased. Because of this change, it will now be easier to aim for a regular throw tech. (There has been no change to the overall window of tech frames).

Air throw tech
• The distance both players are pushed back after an air tech has been decreased, leaving players closer to each other after a teched air throw.

Projectile abilities
• Easy-input projectiles have had their damage reduced (with certain exceptions).
• Recovery on whiff has been increased. Hitstun and blockstun has also been increased, so there's no large discrepency on recovery when the projectile hits or is blocked (please look closer at each individual character for more details).
• Multi-hit projectiles have received more active frames after hitting opponents or other projectiles. Because of this change, it is now more likely that projectiles will hit all of their hits if they connect.

Abilities with invincibility
• When done via easy input damage will now be 200 lower across the board compared to the technical input version.

Skybound Art, Super Skybound Art
• The command input window has been shortened, making it less likely for the player to get these out by accident.
• The time counter will be paused from the start of a Skybound Art or Super Skybound Art until it finishes.
• Adjusted so that close hits will not be interrupted. When landing a far hit, there will be differences depending on each character's different invulnerability properties.
• Adjusted the circumstances after landing a full animation for certain Skybound Arts and Super Skybound Arts. Also fixed an issue where characters locations would change drastically after a landed Skybound Art of Super Skybound Art.
