There is a very small window, where you can punish a blocked square combo. If you don't want to rely on that just block the first two hits and then release block, the third hit will send you flying away. Then try to outzone him with cole, he has so much range and tools. If he's getting close and wants to spam again, try to jump above him and Up Circle him. Works great against most spammers.
Wow i never thought about getting hit by his 3rd hit on purpose to fly away thats smart.. thnx.. and yea i do try to jump a lot but sometimes he catches me when im getting up or w.e.. i just need more practice fighting him.
yeah, but that sounds so bad though. never in a fighting game should a viable way out be that you let your opponent hit you. Either way, he is still getting ap and being rewarded for such bad tactics
If you think about it, he's not rewarded, instead he's destroying his own strategy. Kratos has to approach Good Cole, because otherwise, he'll be outzoned by Coles projectiles. Try playing against a very good Good Cole and you'll see that it's not easy to get in. So once you succeeded in closing the distance, Kratos gains 30 AP from this blocked combo. Then you'll have to do the whole thing all over again, while Cole is just racking up AP, as he gets 20 for a grenade, 30 for a homing grenade and 5 for each lightining. And not to forget, you can punish the Square Square Square combo, but that requires some practice.
