He can just throw his blades out and pull himself towards your character with no real skill or aim. It's automatic. Every time I play as him I dominate and anytime there's a Kratos in a game with 3 non-Kratos characters, he dominates. There have only been a handful of times I've seen a first place winner that wasn't Kratos and it's really annoying.
His attributes are insane:
- Quick (definitely not as slow as Radec/Sweet Tooth)
- Combo-centric (easy to throw an opponent into the air and then dominate with air attacks)
- Crazy supers (His 1&2 are fine, but his level 3 is absolutely ridiculous. I can get 6+ kills with it almost every time. It either needs to be a shorter length or they need to drop the auto aim shot out of his sword when you press O)
- Builds AP too quickly (this is probably my biggest gripe. If it took you like 120 to 150 seconds to build a lvl 3 that would be okay, but most players are getting to a lvl3 within 90-120. I've seen someone get off two of them...that's about 13 kills)
I reall like Kratos as a character but everything is just too easy with him. It's going to be frustrating to see new players gravitate towards him all the time and dominate by button mashing. My personal suggestion would be to drop one of those attributes I listed to even him out, so either:
- Make him a bit slower (this would make his combos a bit less effective, IMO)
- Shorten his Lvl 3 super or drop the "Press O to dominate from across the level" feature
- Give him less AP for his moves, specifically anything mapped to the "square" button.
What do you guys think? Am I just whining or is he overpowered?
I never find him OP.... just his blades grab is annoying but I usually always win agaisnt them...even when there are 3 of them!!
Yep those chains man. Though fighting 3 Kratos' everytime is a challenge, but with Parappa they go down
