Ani-cancelable Iron Shoulder (F)


Recommended Posts

I believe that with the skill patch implemented pre-Worlds EU/NA got the SF Soulburn changes, namely Awakened Right Punch/Cobalt Punch.

With this patch the other versions also had their Iron Shoulder modified so that it can be fully ani-cancelled, which greatly improved the flow of combat. This may not be such an issue for people playing the Earth build, but for Ice players (so most of dedicated, endgame soul-fighters, playing Stage 3 Tier 5 HM Right Punch) stopping to fully play out the Iron shoulder animation after 3-4 Right/Left Punches is detrimental, it feels very awkward. It breaks the momentum of the class combat a lot.

Is it intentional that we did not receive this quality of life improvement as well, or is it something that slipped through dev fingers?
