Is Spike really Low Tier?

12 replies 283 views Edited Feb 10, 2013

Now lets be honest people, 8/10 spikes you fight are a bit of a hassle to fight, even if they spam or not. I think he's at least B Tier at at least. I infact main the guy and i've got a pretty good w/l ratio with him.

He's pretty weak and doesn't have any (realistic) burst combos. His level 1 KC also takes a long time to get used to it and most people see it coming- doesn't even begin to begin to compare to raiden's.
So far most Spikes spam banana boomerang and the monkey that tosses bananas.
He WAS supposed to get a buff but now that the SB has been given the boot- no one knows what'll happen.

i love spike, if his supers were better he would higher tier, but if he really does get a buff then we will start to see a lot more

I main spike and I have him at I think level 970 or somewhere around that. I don't spam any of his moves and he actually has some pretty useful combos. My favorite of his is Down-Square, Up-Square, Side-Triangle, Down-O.

40-65 is nothing compared to 140-150.

As a Spike player, I must disagree and say that Spike, supers and all, is B+ if not A in the hands of an expert. The Bananarang meta-game, the levels of monkey radar, Hoola-Hoop counters, surprise boxing gloves and don't get me started on the RC Satelite antics.

Spike needs only one buff and that's for his teleport. That's my two cents on the matter. :smileyhappy:

I completely agree. As a pro, i know exactly what makes him tick. His slingshot should just be removed -_- and his teleport needs more invincibility frame time, something like Slys.
