As you can probably tell by my icon that i enjoy playing fat princess. But it is just so hard to build meter on her compared to other characters. She is slower by quite a margin and her start up animations are slow as well so its easy to counter them with a quick punch. I just want her to be a little faster and maybe some animation times reduced. Is that too much to ask? Lets look at the other characters.
Kratos: Don't even get me started with this guy. Atleast 1 in every match! Sometimes 2 or 3. This guy is the bane of my exsistence and i know a lot of other players feel the same way. He is so fast and can build meter ridiculously fast. So fast its not even fair. I can't even get a hit on him usually because i keep getting pulled in/ combo'd like crazy. Once he hits level 3 it is good game
Radec: omg that sniper. Such a huge knockback and quite the meter build as well. Everyone just seems to spam it and for someone as slow as Fatprincess it is quite effective against her.
I'm actually pretty good with Fat princess. As long as you know how to dodge Radec's Sniper then it's really easy to attack him.
But yeah, Kratos can be hard sometimes to get at (although attacking from above and then comboing works for me)
A really good FP combo I use is Over-Square (or Triange) and then Up-Triangle. It gets a good amount of AP (45 i think) and it's really easy to pull off if you Down-Triange them to stun from above first.
I feel like Fat Princess is currently the most underrrated character in the beta. I honestly believe she has advantageous match ups against both Kratos and Radec. She has a steep learning curve, but once you learn her tricks she can be a deadly character. I feel she has the potential to be the best character in the beta right now (just noone else sees it right now...). The key to success for Fat Princess lies in the use of her summons...
It is worth noting that you actually CAN attack in the air with the chicken. While in the air, the chicken will flap its wings rather than dashing. Any enemies caught by the flapping will be KOed.
