It's rIdiculous that characters like Kratos and Raiden even got out of play test with how unfair these characters are. Kratos's moves all have a RIDICULOUSLY large area of effect, even hitting plyers behind him, While Raiden can blindly go head first into a Dante Level 1 and "Cancel" the attack. These are only a small issue in the character balance as is the idea of CANCEL and these characters ability to super farm AP by spaming one continuous move. Though blocking is present it's still too hard to counter on characters with an unfathomable reach. Sony, please don't leaves these attrocities unnoticed. Balance your game!
Seriously though, spammers are some of the easiest people to beat once you know how to get around it, and JSYK, Kratos is one of the only characters to not place in tournaments for this game.
