UFC 3 Beta Updates
Previously, long term stamina loss did not affect the initial speed of a combo or strike. Essentially, a winded opponent could strike a s fast as a fresh fighter on the initial strike. Now, stamina will play a much larger role. Long term stamina will need to be a focus as strike will be increasingly sluggish in even in its relative full state. While it won’t always drastically different, the changes will become more noticeable over time. In addition, Harrower also mentions fighters will have different animation sets for fatigued behavior.
