Re: Kratos is WAY overpowered...

I 100% agree! It is utterly frustrating playing the beta at this point because I can't even play a single match without at least 2 people exploiting this OP character (Kratos). Not saying that it is the only thing wrong with the game atm and I am also not saying it is a bad game because I am completely in love with it. But yeah, he's definitely OP. P.S. I also own all those noob **bleep** that use him but it takes all I got unlike when I play against any of the other characters. So don’t go and troll me saying to change my strategy, because I dominate... Just sayin'.

My only issue with Kratos is his chain grab.

 

The Issues

- It has priority over EVERYTHING. Because it's pretty much instant, it trumps every other move (and it's a grab)

- it auto-aims, diagonally AND forward

- it has no set range

- it has no delay (which means you can effectively do it over and over again)


Possibe Solutions

- Map the move to neutral square so it requires more of conscious effort

- Increase start up time

- Make it only forward or only diagonal up (not both)

- Decrease AP (20 is too much for a move that spammable)

- Decrease range, so it's not an automatic latch on despite distance.

i would say get rid of the auto aim O attack during his level 3 and make it so his forward square only goes forward instead of homing after you.  that should do it

His auto aim O attack during his super can be air dodged. I'm actually okay with Kratos' level 3 as is. It just sucks that he gets there so fast.

 

On a completely unrelated note:

Speaking of level 3s, can they un-nerf Fatty Ps level 3? At best it can get three kills and at worst it can get 0. That's not a level 3. Don't care how good her level 2 is. Even Parappa and Heihachi have a guaranteed 3 kills with their level 3. I digress.

I love the responses these threads get like... "he isn't oped, I beat him all the time."  

 

I'm sorry, if you took someone as equally skilled at using Kratos vs. someone equally skilled at another character in the beta, Kratos would most likely win 70% of the time.   It doesn't take someone with 25+ years of fighting game experience to see that; he just has way more tools and advantages over other characters, like super quick AP build, high priority moves, crazy anti-airs, AUTO AIM grabs from a distance, the ability to combo multiple foes from a distance with cat like speed, fast, very good supers with a level 3 that can easily net 4-6 kills because of how long the thing lasts and its AUTO AIM shots and quick sword strikes with crazy hitboxes.... hell, the dude even has a full screen ranged attack (even if it isn't that strong) and the ability to reflect projectiles with his golden fleece.   The guy is like Dhalsim, Chun Li, Zangief, Ryu and a bunch of other fighting game characters rolled into one..

 

Those who are saying he isn't overpowered are just saying so to try to pump up their own egoes because "look at me, I have no problem handing scrubs who play Kratos their butts."

I realy hat how his chain grab auto aim's. they realy need to go only forward or at least make it slower.  It's just so unfair because its pretty much like parrapas chain but can aim anywhere! Although i dont have a problem with facing kratos i can tell alot of new player are gonna jump right to using him just because of it. :l Then there will be even MORE Kratos players.

Kratos is pretty OP, His blades stretch so far, it hits not only ppl infront of him, but also behind him, not only is he deadly close range but can build a decent amount of AP from afar, etc. I fear a really good Kratos player that would utilize all his abiliys rather than 90% of the Kratos users ive faces that mash square like no tomorrow.
