Re: Do you guys think Kratos will be banned from MLG tournaments?

I really don't see the issue with Kratos. He's so predictable and he's honestly a joke to fight most of the time (the exception being the one match I was joking around as Big Daddy in 2v2 vs. 2 spamming Kratoses). His lvl1 is decent to good, his lvl2 is situational at best, and his lvl3 is really the only one worth going for and still has a 30% failure rate (which is even higher against competent players).

The L1 button helps make Kratos the worst character in the game, if you use it, y'know.

Absolutely not, if 1 character will be banned it will be Sackboy.

Kratos usually gets 4th place on every fight I'm ever in due to him being crap. He's extremely predictable.

Kratos is fine. Maybe reduce the knockback on his Forward+Square and bring down his AP gain by a little bit. Other than that he is beatable by characters like Raiden, Dante, Sackboy, etc. So no, I don't see Kratos being banned.

 

And a major reason Metaknight was banned was because his sword attacks (his entire moveset except one attack) had trancendant priority. What this meant was that no matter how much stronger another characters attack and no matter how long they charged it (if it allowed), the attack could never clash with Metaknight's sword. The nature of trancendant priority would result in Metaknight's attacks always emerging the victor. This along with his insane attack speed, small size, recovery options, and the fact that his inpenetrable sword covers his body, made him a character in his own tier on top with no troublesome match ups. 

 

Kratos is not like this. He's good but he's not unfairly good, he can be beaten and a lot of the characters in the roster can put up a fight. Kratos is good in almost any match up but he does have some where he has trouble. And some stages where he's only ok.

Hold Block. A lot of Kratos players won't stop to grab you and once his combo string is over, rape his mouth. He is a nightmare for FFA because the other two people feed his meter. Beta allowed me to practice dodging his L3 like a pro so he might get one kill of me.

Kratos is fine, he won't be banned.

I have no doubt that Kratos will be banned from MLG Tournaments.

I love it when people use Kratos. They spam the chain attacks and the level 3 super. I use Sly Cooper and whenever they do that I just troll them with L1.
