According to Nintendo, the Ver. 1.0.4 update will adjust game balance as well as "fix various problems to make the game more enjoyable to play." Nintendo hasn't yet gone into specifics regarding what exactly will be changed to tweak the game balance.

The patch notes also that those who download Ver. 1.0.4 will not be able to play local play with those running Ver. 1.0.3 and lower. What's more, those that download the patch won't be able to playback previously saved replays.

So, if you want to keep your replays, just don't download Ver. 1.0.4, right? Well, once the update hits, it will be required for those wanted to engage in online play. So, there's that.

I know a lot of people will point their grievences as to what character feels overpowered. To me, a scrub or spammy Little Mac can be dealt with due to his terrible air game. Even though I don't play as him, it takes skill to master Little Mac even though he's a bit on the overpowered side. Nothing game breaking though. I've found ways through him.

Personally, the one character which I freeze up against the most is Roselina and Luma. I just can't deal with her. I think I beat only two Roselinas ever since playing the game. Is it me or is she really overpowered? If not, how do you deal with her exactly in a 1 vs 1?

Another character that I struggle to play against is Robin. Although much less than Roselina, a Robin who knows what he/she is doing is VERY hard to play against 1 vs 1.

In essence, both Robin and Roselina seem to have more unfair (OP) advantages and tactics in contrast to the rest of the roster in my personal experience of playing over 500 For Glory 1 vs 1 matches. Curious to hear what everyone else thinks and whether or not those two in particular should be nerfed.
