In the early part of the stream he mentioned that guard crush sanctioned him demoing this.
Axel buffs he's mentioned thus far

  • Faster movement speed (on par with blaze)
^ I think that's too much tbh. Adam and him should just swap walk speeds (Adam has a dash, so having fast walk speed too seems a bit much)

  • I-frames on grand upper startup
  • Grand upper and neutral special OTGs
  • Neutral special can be used when you're being hit (in air as well)
  • Less hitstop on neutral special
  • Added range on forward special
^ This is all pretty awesome. Apparently, the bolded one is a universal change too.

  • Charge attack does more damage and wall bounces

But it already does that...

no more armor for Kevin (headbutt teenager), or for firebreather fat dudes.
^ Cool.

  • A number of bosses have been nerfed (slowed)
... They're already slow as f***. : |

  • Tracking for jumping sisters nerfed
Cool
  • Galsia's weapon hitbox nerfed
Why though? Galsia having ridiculous range was always one the things that made him endearing.

  • Miss Y buffed, shadows in bossfight
So basically not buffed at all.

  • No more Floyd infinite
  • No more Blaze infinite, it's gone
This will benefit the game in the long run.

  • Barney is slower, has had a hitbox adjustment and with less HP
I don't think that was needed tbh.

  • Kickboxer flying knee is slower
Again, why?

  • Y Tower locker room now spawns turkey
Cool.

Game's easier: the patch.

Should just f***ing rework how score works and keep the aspect of people being inevitably hit by something a part of high level play.
Ill add something here later....

Wow they really messed with a lot more than I thought they would. :/

I really just wanted these mainly...

Axel buffs
Dash/speed increase for slow characters
Special interrupt
Edit: and the combo system. Breaks should end the combo and bank points.

They reinstated the ability to special out of hitstun. Thrown weapons still don't refill green health.

Retro characters were also changed. SOR3 Skate was nerfed on his blitz while 2 was buffed. It's basically a Ryu vs Ken SRK situation where 2 does all of his damage on one hit, while 3 does the bulk of his on the 2nd; which can whiff.

Stage 7 Commissioner doesn't have super armor during God Press and Overhead Punch anymore (indirectly a nerf to Estel 2)
Floyd losing more health during specials (lol)
SoR1 Adam's combo being closer to the original way it worked in SoR1.
Stage 12 starts you with half health now.
Cherry's Offensive Special is faster, she can also jump-cancel the 4th hit of her ground string.
