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.

so...you're not okay?
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.
