You can't mind game a 'mind'less player. Sorry, mind games actually require the opponent to have a mind.

Most Kratos's don't.

I main Nariko and, yeah, she needs a buff, but only slightly. Her lvl 1 should be faster, and her lvl 2 cannon should be able to swing around faster so that people can't constantly roll around it. Other than that she's fine.

jak is the number 1 rated character for a buff to btw...



I don't know about him. Maybe it's just because I don't use him, but that wave concussor makes him incredibly safe. I can't even touch Jak sometimes. 


Wave Con doesn't make him that safe. Trust me. It just depends on your skill level and character. You know whats funny. Almost all characters in this game are Jak's worst match up. I find that quite stupid considering Jak's backround as well.

Her level 1 needs no buff as well as her level 2. Ive fought some really skilled nariko players who were in sync with her supers. Her level 1 is actually pretty fast in certain sutuations and her level 2 cannon has a model box meaning when you try to roll around it the cannon will block you so you can't easily escape the area. In addition you have to remember that her level 3 last for a long time and is one of the best in the game.

You know, I was thinking that too... Then a guy who's never been in tournaments showed up and placed 3rd in 2 tournaments on the same day. This was not hitting bad opponents either. This guy sent Dabuz into losers with Nariko. Hopefully videos should be uploaded soon, but in the meantime, here's the link to the results:

This combined with the fact that the top 2 teams at SCR had Nariko in them makes it very hard to justify a buff for her.

Her level one should definitely be faster, or at least you should actually be able to time the trigger. The level two should definitely swing faster. It takes to long to turn that crap around. She'd might as well be using a level one super for all that. That level 2 is garbage in my opinion. Honestly, I think she needs an entirely new level two altogether because it really does suck.

Oh, and BlueDiamond, that little whatever box you were talking about doesn't really help anyone. You can just hop over her rather than roll around her. It's too easy to avoid.

 

Also, people can just run up to her and avoid the special by jumping around her or even worse just flat out killing her. It's quite the nuisance. If the stage is large, they might not make it to you, but if it's little, one good leap, and they've completely avoided all of your efforts. That super is garbage. Period.

 

It's true that her level three is godly, but it's not always easy to get to it since comboing with her is sometimes impossible with people constantly interrupting you, plus, a lot of her combo starters are just laggy as crap. They just don't do her justice. I mean, Radec, Sly and Raiden have really amazing level 1 and 2's, and their level 3's are still really great. Okay, Radec's level 1 is alright, but still.

Okay, that is impressive, but I still stand by my argument. Her supers, other than the level 3, are garbage. Maybe I'm just not that good at fighting with her yet, so I can take back the combo thing, but her level 1 and 2 supers are still crap.

Well, her level 1 isn't amazing, but you can combo into it, and it's actually pretty good in 2v2 and FFA. Her level 2 is garbage though. Her level 3.... Well, that's one of the better supers in the game and can instantly end games.

I've noticed that with Nariko players it''s all about that Level 3 Super.

 

But her combos (if we could call it that) are very punishable. So Nariko players put in work. Kudos to them!
