Main Character
Here are a list of changes and new additions to Bass that will be updated periodically. Positive or beneficial changes will be highlighted in green and nerfed or downgraded changes highlighted in red. Changes that are in a way still beneficial or can be an alternative to lost properties will be highlighted in yellow.

This thread aims at gathering and documenting any changes made to the character after game updates.

Current version of the game is 1.19.

New Moves
:4::K: (:T:)
Linear mid kick with decent range and good safety, ideal for whiff punishing and can transition into grab. Has a noticable recovery, so whiffing this is not a good idea. Mostly only gives +9 on hit, unless you link it from a stun or get a hit on high counter.

:4::4::P:, :T:
New hit throw extention to the old 44P. Like 4K, it acts as mid punch hit throw with good damage and positioning.

:426::T__:, :268::T:,:4862:/:6842::T:
New Extention to the charged OH and more of a variety tool than a practical one. Does only 5 more damage compared to the regular ender and it's not that big of a change.

Generally, your combos after the OH has changed, but overall damage is very similar.

New move for the character and technically the return of the DOA3.1/3.2 :4::T: in a more revised form. Can be followed up with an air throw or :P:(:h:) into either :6::K::P: or :T: air throw for some damage. Used to be a central throw in his throw game, but has been relegated to something to be used for throwing into walls or to punish holds.

:T: (Facing Wall)
New wall throw. Despite being a nuetral throw, it's unbreakable and is one of the fastest guaranteed punishes in the game at 4i. Decent damage and allows for controlling your opponent against the wall. Has a surprisingly long wall throw activation, even if you're a bit away from one.

Pretty decent string, more as a tool for stun extention or good as a tracking move with the first :s:. Ofcourse, it's unsafe like all special moves, but it's still great, especially in stun.

Overall a great move. Good range, great damage and good plus frames if blocked. Can be performed after a bound.

New SS move with great priority and decent damage. Something to give a breather against pesky spammers and dragon kickers. Like all SS moves, it's unsafe, but that's a price worth paying for countering pressure and changing momentum.

-Causes a spike knockdown on airbourne opponents, allowing for more ground game and more advantage from launching opponents. Also allows for return of DOA5 force-tech setups.

-Low-crush properties revised to allow the move to go over lows better.

-Has bound properties on airborne or after a 9PP/7PP+K bounds

-An alternative to :6::T: for punishment

-Replaces old DOA5 :4::T:
-Still triggers a wall throw if your back is to the wall

-Normal damage changed from 88 to 85
-HCT damage now 144 from 132 139 due to changes to HC scaling on regular holds/OHs, however you can now get 148 against Break Holds and Break Blows.
