Re: Im sorry what was that about kratos being op?

You know what someone on Youtube brought up that Kratos would be such an overused character that he'd become predictable, honestly I think that user hit the nail on the head because that's exactly what's going on with the beta and honestly I wouldn't be surprised if we still see Kratos filled matches in the full game.

BEATING KRATOS DOESN'T MEAN HE IS NOT OVER POWERED. GET THIS THROUGH YOUR THICK SKULLS

He builds AP way too fast and he is going to get nerfed

Kratos is really OP... in FFA. In a 1v1 situation I see every other character in the beta having a better game than Kratos. Learn to air dodge his forward square cuz you saw it coming and punish. Thats all you have to do against most of the crowd who plays him but he is still great in the right hands. I do believe that on single targets Other characters have more. Fat Princess has assists that make all her moves safe and she has excellent range. PaRappa can build a meter+ with one combo on one person. Sly never has to dedicate himself to the combat and uses his mobility to make it impossible to land a clean hit between the speed/recovery of his skills, amazing mobility, high jumps, varying descent speeds, excellent pressure tools with alarm clock and down triangle+landmine/lightning traps. Sweet Tooth has an unbelievable 50/50 game when he gets you knocked down (awesome in 1v1) and radec has a pretty solid zoning game using his neutral triangle to bate/control space extremely well. Kratos has an excellent air game and a pretty solid yet predictable ground game. However Kratos's weakness lies in his recovery on a decent amount of his moveset. Also I feel his supers are a little bad for 1v1 as well aside from doing them when your opponent is just getting up off the ground or you expecting them to block. Wouldnt put Kratos on top of anything...aside from maybe in FFA

I'm a little more confused about why everyone complains about Radec's sniper spam. It's super easy to dodge/block. I agree that Kratos gains AP too quickly and his Forward + Square is annoying as **bleep**.

 

Also, what the **bleep** does "Nerf" mean??? I only think of Nerf Guns

Think of the word 'nerf' as a nerf gun is to a real gun. Less powerful.

Should be looking at nerfing Fat Princess.... I'm telling you she's awesome and can easily combo into her level 1.

I honestly wish they weren't so nerf happy. The same thing happened with Mortal Kombat. They jumped the gun and nerfed and buffed a whole bunch of characters multiple times before the game had even barely been out long enough to develope a metagame. It in turn suffered greatly and some characters that were unexplored received unnecessary buffs and become way too good while some characters that were more explored/more popular got nerfed out of competition.

The forward + square is ridiculous. Even though I use that character and I love using kratos...his fighting style is awesome but he gains a lot of AP really quick amd seeing noobs spam forward + square and getting level 2/3 supers in like 30 seconds is annoying as hell.
