I'm a bit worried about nerfing..

13 replies 269 views Edited Jan 13, 2013

Here's why.

 

When the game first came out, I loved it (and still do) but a lot of people were complaining about Sackboy.

Eventually, he got nerfed.

 

Now here's the news that Kratos, Drake, and Raiden are getting nerfed. Which isn't exactly bad, since Kratos and Raiden  needed a nerf. But who's next? When enough people lose online to the same character, they're going to complain until that character gets nerfed and that will kill this game.

 

Watch Fat Princess get nerfed next because 200 twelve year olds complain online because they got comboed into a level 1 by FP one too many times.

 

(And for the record, that '200 twelve year olds' thing isn't directed towards anyone on this forum or any other forum for that matter.)

Well... Sackboy needed it. I know a tremendous Sackboy post-nerf and he's not underpowered at all. And FP does need a nerf... Her ability to set up confirm combos is insane.

How about we just wait and see what happens. So far, only one nerf has happened. And the outcome has been perfectly fine. It didn't destroy Sackboy. All it did was open up his game more. I see good Sackboys doing some great combos and zoning without cake spam. I think Superbot knows what they're doing when it comes to nerfs.

FP doesn't need a nerf. She can't confirm you if you're in the air.

Also, there are still more characters that are in need of nerfing in some way.

Coles, Toro exploits, etc.

FP: air nS. Now you're on the ground. She uses her great wake-up game to confirm you into submission.

They just want superbot to go nerf happy because they lost to a character that they claim to be trash and underpowered.

 

 

And that's my 2 cents.

Superbot can, and will, always do whatever they want to do,community be damned.  They only nerfed Sackboy because they themselves did not like what he was doing, and there were reports that they wanted to nerf him before the game shipped.  Kratos has been getting constant complaints since the beta, and they have yet to do squat about him.  Even though they said after the beta they would, "look into it".  Just like they are saying now.  Don't be surprised if he gets no nerfs at all, gets nerfed to the ground, or gets buffed even.

 

So don't worry, all our complaints mean nothing at the end of the day.  They will do what they want to do.

Well Superbot themselves said that they test these things out on their own time which is good because ya know it shows that they're willing to test these things out before deciding these things need balancing, it's the same thing as whenever we come across some crazy glitch that seems too good to be true and we want to test it out to try it for ourselves.

I'm sure we'll see some character balancing sometime in the not-too-distant future. I'm also sure we'll see lots of complaints about how or what they did to balance the characters. 

 

What I'm most worried about is if Superbot doesn't do the balancing intelligently, or perpetually adjusts the characters to grease the squeaky wheel.
