Along with the release of new character Lidia Sobieska, Bandai Namco has released Tekken 7 patch 4.10, putting in balance adjustments to a few overpowered characters.
Fahkumram took the biggest hit in the patch, getting nerfs to twelve separate moves. The developers gave players a lengthy explanation for each change, generally commenting on Fahkumram’s over-the-top damage output and advantage when using such moves.
A substantial nerf to Fahkumram is his 1,1 string. Being the Muay Thai fighter’s spamming poke, Bandai has decreased its damage from 20 to 16 and removed its counter-hit properties, making it obsolete as a combo-starter.
His 10-frame combo move (1,4) had an unbelievable +16 frame advantage on-hit, guaranteeing a launch on the opponent. Deemed to be an outstanding move compared to the rest of the cast, the developers have dropped the frame advantage to +3.
Another nerfed move to note for anyone going against Fahkuram is his parrying cartwheel (d3+4). As an attack that parried high/mid punches and guaranteed a juggle, the patch decreased its damage from 20 to 15 and increased the frame advantage when guarded from -13 to -17 frames, making it launch-punishable for opponents.
