MVP patch 1.30 Notes (1.02) – June 13, 2024

General

  • All characters now incur a 15-frame repeat-move lockout on their ground side attack combo. This will prevent individual fighters from alternating ground side attack and dodge to lock enemies in hitstun for extended periods of time.
  • Camera minimum distance in 1v1 has been increased
  • All available Profile Icons, Banners, Badges, Ringouts and Announcer Packs will appear in the Account Cosmetics section of the Fighters tab. Previously only some unowned cosmetics were shown.

  • Fixed an issue where attempting to spawn a platform would not consume an air evade

Characters

Gizmo

Gizmo’s maneuverability and size make him incredibly difficult to pin down. His movement combined with his incredibly strong zoning game make it nearly impossible for some characters to ever get the edge against him. These changes should help bring Gizmo’s evasiveness more in line with the cast so it’s easier for other characters to get up close and punish.

Harley Quinn

Harley’s slide and up attack were granting her very easy combos for very little risk. These changes should keep her combo game intact, while making slide and up attack feel less like “do everything” buttons.

    • – On-hit branch window delayed 10 frames

    • ~ Now ignores player collisions during movement
    • – Leg hurtbox size increased slightly

Iron Giant

Iron Giant play was dominated by his easy-to-input infinites and a few early-kill setups. We’re hoping that removing his most egregious setups will make him feel more like the rest of the cast, and we feel good about letting players play with him again.

  • Ground Side Attack
    • * Fixed an issue where Morty could not jump or dodge during his side attack combo

Reindog

  • Ground Side Attack 1
    • – Jump branch window delayed 6 frames

Shaggy

We have reverted the Shaggy Air Neutral Attack so that it can be canceled earlier on hit, but it did not get into this patch. This change will be coming in a patch in the very near future.
