Gameplay updates explained

  • Dashdancing in the previous patch we attempted to bridge a gap between having to start up a run from standstill & going into an initial boost out of dashdance. Now the properties have been retooled to allow a dash to receive an initial boost at all times, provided speed is low enough to warrant it, while still requiring some degree of initial commitment to reach max speed. Consequently, this makes dashdancing no longer have a designated cap on when a dash attack can start, simply reach maxspeed to do so
  • Hurtboxes didn’t have the level of accuracy to character models that we were satisfied with, so now every single character has hurtboxes that fully encompass their models. Combined with the alterations to the z-axis calculations that allows hitbox/hurtbox visuals to not be locked to the z-axis, players will now have the ability to see with complete certainty where a character is positioned in 3D space
  • There were some inaccuracies in how the landing lag floors were handled across characters, with some having the ability to recover from an aerial far sooner than others under the same minimum landlag conditions. This interaction was not intended, and has been uniformly addressed across the entire cast
  • There were several moves across the cast that didn’t have the block direction reflect the move’s activated direction. This has since been addressed & every move should now be blockable by holding against the direction of initiation.
