According to the patch notes, Devil Jin’s Hellsweep has been adjusted to address the high total damage output of the resulting combo, compared to other low attacks in the game. Furthermore, Devil Jin’s Mourning Crow 1 has also been adjusted, making it easier for the opponent to sidestep it.

On the other hand, Jun’s absurdly damaging wall combo has finally been fixed. Before the update, Jun could do f,f3,3+4 into 1+2 to deal massive damage to the opponent at the wall after a combo. Additionally, Jun’s uf1 has also been affected by the recent update, altering the opponent’s reaction upon hit and invalidating some follow-ups that resulted in exceedingly high-damage output.
