Game Breaking Tech Discovered for SF6, Capcom Moves  to Crush It
Players have already found tech that could be really advantageous, but Capcom is on to them

With $2,000,000 on the line and what has been a very enjoyable experience so far, the grind for Street Fighter 6 has been insane with players finding new things and gimmicks within the game with regularity.

However, one of the techs that has been discovered has the potential to be very problematic especially within a competitive sphere. Some players have discovered a throw tech OS that enables the player to guard against both throws and normals in the corner. Street Fighter 6's corner game is notoriously terrifying and difficult to guard against so with tech like this, it can really alleviate the problems in the corner. Of course, on the other side of this, players who are looking to attack see this as not very good as it gives the defending player what could be deemed an unfair advantage.

The new tech caused a lot of discussion in the community with one side approving of something helpful and another asking Capcom to do something about it. 

While the throw tech would have been a hassle in online play, the worry was its effect in tournaments. However, this might not be a problem as the CPT rules do not allow SAB (Simultaneous Input Assistance Buttons) for tournaments in Japan although it has been argued that this is not the case in English settings. But, it is clear that the English rules will most likely follow the Japanese rules in this particular instance. 

But, before arguments could go to any further lengths, Capcom responded to the controversy stating that they have realized it and will be looking into it. This probably means that the tech will be patched out and no longer usable.

The speed of Capcom's response is admirable and with this, we can say with some certainty that there will be a resolution which will ensure that this isn't a problem in a tournament, or casual setting.
