Bummed Out About Latest Smash Ultimate Update

One of the things I most look forward to when Super Smash Bros Ultimate updates is the balance patches. Terry and his stage are cool (I like the unique take on how the King of Fighters Arena works in Smash) but man.... The buffs were a letdown for me in 6.0.

Not in terms of which characters got buffed but the small number of characters to get buffed. I'm really, really, REALLY wanting Cloud to get buffed too. He desperately needs it. I'd like his grab to be adjusted from a frame 9 grab to a frame 6. His dair should have a hitbox that actually matches the animation. Buff his nair too (why does Ike get to keep such a ridiculous nair?). Lastly, adjust his limit where I can at least see when it's about to go away or make the amount of time it lasts last a little bit longer (I do miss Limit lasting indefinitely).

But yeah, I wanted a larger balance update to characters. Very disappointed this time around. Hopefully we get a better balance patch next time in 7.0.

I pretty much agree with you on all Fronts with Cloud. His grab is horribad and improving it could open up your approach/attack options (played some characters whose grab game is more important like Falco and Mega Man and now Terry).

I heard recently folks comparing Cloud's Limit to Joker's Limit, and it's like people don't even consider Cloud's Limit momentum shifting anymore during matches. That and his recovery makes me sad. I feel like if they gave Climhazzard a tiny bit of Horizontal movement it may help.

Nah, I'm fine. I just find one of the most exciting things about Smash updates is balance changes and this update blew.

I admit I'm biased about Cloud, but he really needs it. I'm happy some of the low tiers got buffed. But why did the other Smash 4 top tiers get buffed EXCEPT Cloud? Damn it!

That's a shame I'd buy it for Joker alone though.
