Seriously? Rufus going to be nerfed already? Why?

Talk about a knee jerk nerf. So what, they're going to nerf him and not focus on characters who need severe help like Paul Phoenix? A few whiners can't handle a little dive kick pressure so they nerf Rufus's most important move?

Being able to cross up easily was admittedly unfair but nerfing the frame data and hurt box is just ridiculous. The move was mostly fine as is and now they're going to wreck it. From +5 on block to -4? Seriously? Hopefully Capcom smartens up and doesn't go ahead with some of these nerfs because nerfing a character within 2 months of a game's release is ludicrous.

Capcom almost made the same mistake back when they were deciding how to nerf Rufus for SSF4. They were smarter back then and knew that nerfing the dive kick is about the dumbest thing they could do for a character who centers around them. What Capcom needs to do is reel it back with this nerf and focus up before it's too late.

Well the general consensus was that it was one of the main nerfs that had to be done. Why procrastinate it.

If the nerf is too much, they can always fix it later.

Yeah, I prefer capcom buffing weaker characters rather than nerfing solid characters. Better to have a bunch of solid characters than watered down ones. Small nerfs here and there are to be expected though.

+5 to -4 on block. I want you all to think about that for a bit.

Dive Kick being +5 was pretty dumb anyway.

On a character that bases his entire game plan on it? +5 was sufficient at best, this nerf is just downright insane.

Rufus is still a solid character with this nerf. It's not like they shot him down to Paul or Balrog levels.

All it means is that you'll have to be a bit smarter using the divekick now, rather than just doing one right after another nonstop.

The Dive Kick's cross up properties were ridiculous, but I didnt really mind the +5.
