Even most of the mechanics above seem to work pretty fine and make the game enjoyable as it is, I often got myself wondering about tweaking some of them. Here are the most recurrent question i ask myself :


Feel free to quote me on those and add your own suggestions. Every feedback is appreciated ! :)

Well, after few experimentations, I've implemented many of the tweaks I've mentionned before
Spoiler, click to toggle visibilty
Backdashes are more nervous, rolls have better cross ability, Ground techs are invincible only at startup, and juggle points have been reevaluated (18 points). I find those tweaks very satisfying since they've brought some more possibilities, without breaking out all the rest.
