Re: Anyone tired of Raiden?

Confirm kills, meh.
Super long combos, meh.
What I hate the MOST is how his stuns are SO long. It's STUPIDLY long. You fall back and take FOREVER to get up!
Raiden has a way too big window of opportunity to do stuff, after realising. "Holy crap I actually stunned him!"
Doing a combo and suddenly in the middle being able to hit backwards. That means, no real dodge through him and start a combo in his back safety, if Raiden knows what he's doing.

What are the cons of Raiden? Because there REALLY need to be some. I can't see any.

Screw noobs with Kratos doing forward square all day with red belts. Easily blocked and dodged and then punished, but Raiden >_>

I would also love to give him a go, because I like his character, but it would just be too easy to abuse people and not really feel satisfied after a win.
Do you really feel satisfied as a Raiden main? Really?

Some cons for Raiden:

-He needs to commit to almost everything he does.
-He always has to approach. While this is usually easy, it becomes harder against characters with good stage control and super armor.
-He is very dependent on an extremely punishable grab to get kills.
-His aerials are very unsafe and all of them have rather large blind spots.
-He has a lot of trouble fighting characters who can stay in the air.
-He is one of the worst characters at punishing airdodges into the ground since his grab is so very slow and so very punishable.


Don't get me wrong, he's a great character, but he most definitely has weaknesses.



I just get tired of seeing bad Raidens. Fighting so many bad ones makes the few good ones that much harder to play against.
