The creation of Miguel's b,df4
It takes a brave game designer to take an good move and make it better. It takes a braver one to take a bad move and make it worse.

00:00 - 00:05Mr. Murray comes up to me. "We're making a new move for every character in Season 3."
00:05 - 00:07Hurry up, you're in charge of Miguel.
00:07 - 00:10Lucky me. I hate that characteyr.
00:11 - 00:16SAV df2, SAV db3, his playerbase is nothing but spamming scrubs.
00:17 - 00:21So we made his new move a low.
00:21 - 00:24A low!
00:29 - 00:31A low!
00:31 - 00:34Miguel has like 15 lows!
00:38 - 00:40A low!
00:41 - 00:47The guy has one useful mid
00:47 - 00:50he has SAV df2
00:50 - 00:56but that's getting nerfed!
00:58 - 00:59One mid!
00:59 - 01:01And we're giving him a Snake Edge
01:04 - 01:06Miguel already has
01:06 - 01:08two Snake Edges!
01:13 - 01:14A low!
01:14 - 01:16And it's reactable!
01:16 - 01:20Take that you scrubs!
01:21 - 01:27But wait, this low is still too good! Way too good!
01:35 - 01:36So it doesn't even launch!
01:36 - 01:39It's a counterhit launcher.
01:41 - 01:44But seriously, it really was too good.
01:44 - 01:47After SAV uf3, this gave you a guaranteed followup.
01:47 - 01:49It was like 40 damage.
01:50 - 01:53So now it doesn't hit grounded.
01:54 - 01:56A low.
01:56 - 01:58And it doesn't hit grounded!
01:58 - 02:02Try to use it for oki? It whiffs!
02:05 - 02:07A low!
02:10 - 02:11It's- it's
02:11 - 02:13*wheezes in Spanish*
02:15 - 02:17Bryan has this crappy low
02:17 - 02:20We basically copied it for Miguel's new move, input and all
02:21 - 02:28But you can cancel Bryan's, and you can't cancel Miguel's!
02:29 - 02:30You're committed?
02:30 - 02:32You're stuck!
02:36 - 02:39All 27 frames!
02:40 - 02:42And it doesn't even high crush.
02:50 - 02:55It's his worst low by far.
02:56 - 02:58It's worse than his Snake Edges?
02:58 - 03:04They're weaker on counterhit, but faster and high crush.
03:04 - 03:09Not that it matters since they're all getting blocked.
03:09 - 03:11And SAV db3 is way better.
03:16 - 03:20So we nerfed that too.
03:23 - 03:26We wanted to "encourage" them to use the new low!
03:31 - 03:36Imagine the looks on their faces when they find out Miguel's not in Tekken 8!
