So last night I was talking to Oichi (VersusCity site admin) as he was translating the Japanese SF4 blog and he was telling me about some of the changes that are on the way for the Street Fighter 4 upcoming free DLC update. The conversation mainly revolved around how the patch will handle disconnecting players but after checking Versus City this morning it looks like character balances and tweaks are also on the way.
This is something I personally did not expect, but perhaps now that the game is the hands of millions of people CAPCOM has a better idea on what to fix. Any guesses on who is going to receive some changes? Sagat is almost too easy of an answer. -Sigh-
I personally hope they don't change the attributes of the moves but instead just adjust stamina and damage output. I feel if they mess with the actual properties of the moves themselves, that has the potential to do more harm than good to the game.
When the game gets updated, there will be changes to the base game and characters. What changes will be made is unknown, but the “obvious points” will be addressed. You know as much as I do on this.
