News:: Aquaman gutted like a fish in Injustice 2's first big balance patch

Injustice 2's first big balance patch has arrived. While previous patches focused on bug fixes and minor adjustments, this patch represents a major shake up for NetherRealm's funny book fighter, aimed at taking the edge off some of the top-tier characters while boosting some of the weaker ones. You can read the entire patch notes on the Injustice 2 official boards, but I'll tell you right now that some characters made out better than others.

Unsurprisingly (if you've been following message board chatter and the tournament scene), the two characters hit the hardest are Aquaman and Black Adam. Royalty just can't catch a break it seems. The king of Atlantis can no longer combo off a meter burned Tentacle Strike, his Trident Rush does less chip damage on block, and some of his safest and most spam-able combo strings have been adjusted to make him a little more vulnerable on recovery. Meanwhile, Black Adam has received damage nerfs pretty much across the board and some of his best tools (IE, Black Magic) have been given more recovery and less advantage. 

I'm sure players who main those characters will be disappointed, but for those of us who have lived in constant trembling fear of the monarchy since release, this is a welcomed revolution. Sharpen up the guillotine.
