    PLD 3+4 – increased pushback to fix side switching with opponent

    New moves:

    f23 – i12, 29dmg nh, mid high, +4 ends in BT (f2 has a obviously different animation to 2 now)

    SNA 41 – 24dmg nh, low high, +1 ends in neutral

    SNA 41f – +4 transition to Tiger, can still TGR backdash out of downjab range

    Summary:

    Overall punishment and QoL improvements, with strong situations off punishers i10-i12:

    • BT is now more dangerous, with a new i12 punisher entering BT at +4, and BT43 no longer launch punishable, down to -12. Other buffs to fn3 and b4b help enter BT at plus too.

    SNA is now more dangerous as his i10 already gave him +5 in SNA but now with SNA 41f entering tiger at +4 as a low high natural combo, both punishes at i10 and i12 give him a strong situation.
