As a life time Sagat user, I do not think he needs any true tweeking, except maybe give his jumping back medium punch less priority. But thats it, and if it will get the scrubs off of his back, fine. But I fear as long as he is #1 on the tier list, the complaints will never stop, so I suggest we slap Gen as #1 on the tier list, that way the scrubs will flock to the Gen forum and make stupid ass threads daily complaining about him and making wishlists on how to nerf him.
Sagat is already patched, look at the mans face. Anyway, NO there are no balance changes coming to sagat in the near future, I can’t say forever, but def not in the near future. People start rumors. People seem to forget that capcom balanced this game by giving each character 1 trait that is ridic. overpowered. The thing is sagat’s trait is damage / health. Which takes 0 skill to unlock, just play, and the advantage is yours. Whereas a character like seth / akuma trait is teleports, mix ups, semi infinites, etc. etc. etc. which take a while to figure out as the game progresses.
I dont know about him being over powered since im not at the absolute master peak of my game yet but i can say that any player with a medium amount of skill can give me a pretty hard time, where as with any other character, they get crushed.
I think its that Sagat has an insane S.HK, His tiger uppercuts and fireballs, put that on top of his Tiger knee which is enough on its own to support a fresh character. Its like he has 1.5 characters moves all of which do insane damage and have really high priority.
He does feel strong, maybe even too strong but overpowered ? I dunno about that.
