Frickin' Kratos, man....

[ Edited ]
11 replies 170 views Edited Oct 26, 2012

So I've been playing the beta like I'm sure most of you have been doing.

 

And yup, Kratos. Is it just me or does it seem like he gets Supers really quickly. His range is unreal and most of his moves are spammed against me. I just really dislike Kratos in the beta and there are at least 2 Kratos's every match I play.

 

I refuse to stoop down to the level of using Kratos. Please say I'm not the only one.

I'm not a fan but I respect good players who use him well, the people who just use the square moves are irritable but not impossible.

You need to turn his main strength (long range strikes) into a weakness. Learn to dodge forwards just before he gets in range and punish him. I don't think he's a particularly cheap character, it's just that he's easy to get to grips with in a beta where you're just kind of thrown into the deep end.

 

The reason why you see him get to level 1 really fast is simply because he's well suited to going into a combo and taking it to the air. Any character can get their level 1 very easily when used properly. PaRappa, for example, has an easy to use combo that gains 140 AP, which is enough to get to level 1 from 0.

I use Kratos because I love god of war, and I love his fighting style but yeah he does seem to get supers really quickly. I think his square attacks might give just a bit too much AP. You push forward and square and it gives you 30 AP per hit.

I only spam with him if I get upset though. Last night I activated a level 3 and these guys kept doding all my attacks..I got like 3 kills with it, so I spammed forward + square until I got a level 1 and killed the guy who kept dodging.

I just beat 2 Kratos's with PaRappa. My strategy was run away and hit them with more ranged attacks like the mic grab and skatebaord smash. I just got 3 level 2's and won.

 

But Kratos is kind of cheap, he makes me sad

Im just like you on this one! XD I hate how there is more that 1 Kratos every match i go in, and like you i would NEVER use him. Just so i wont have to be one of THOSE... players. Also, yah kratos is very cheap. Luckily hes getting nerfed to gain less ap once the agme comes out though. Smiley Tongue

Kratos is one of the easiest characters to fight against now. I only have an issue if the player knows what he's doing, which with Kratos is rare.
