Parrapa's Mic grab can out range Kratos' forward O. I usually do this to any spammer as Parappa and follow up with a grab. Rinse and repeat.

Yep this is a good way of dealing with them, when they are coming at you keep guarding until you have an opening, mic grab them and do a grab to deplete thier AP

They said the same thing about Ike from SSBB,



Ike is overpowered. The only thing that makes him beatable is the fact that he's kinda slow (not slow enough to justify how strong even his whimpiest attacks are. He's beatable, but he also doesn't have chain attacks that cover the distance between kratos (2 characters length of chain) and the other player in a 360 degree radius.

Yes, but idt doesn't come out nearly as quick as Kratos' blades.  and I'm playing as Sweet Tooth almost exclusively, so I'm afraid it won't help. :/  Thanks anyways, good sir.

No problem but like n0rmal said, block is your best friend. As for Sweet Tooth, I have nothing on him. Sorry.

I do block.  A lot actually.  And I try rolling, but I usually get caught by him in recovery.  Even rolling behind him doesn't work because he can just turn around mid stroke and catch you.  I just wish Sweet Tooth had real combos... Smiley Sad

I hate to say it but yeah Kratos is overpowered I mean I have been like almost halfway across the map from him and he gets me with his square forward or up chain attack. Also he really does build up AP at a ridiculous rate most people usually can 2 level 3 or one level 3 and like 2 level 2s. I think both of these need to be toned down slightly and him being a character for new people is not a good excuse for him being overpowered.

In all honesty, I would be happy if they just slowed him down.  And got rid of that awful homing.  If they did that, I would be fine with him.  But as he stands, he is incredibly hard to counter or attack.  His range is fine, but his speed is the killer.  He has little recovery time between attacks, so he can just be always attacking and there's nothing you can do.  Not to mention most of his attacks launch you after getting comboed to  h e l l.  I don't know what Superbot is going to do to fix this, but I hope they do.  I'm sure they see this happening.  And I agree.  Being easy to use isn't a good excuse.  he should have just as much of a learning curve as all the other characters.

My opinion is he is no OP but he is definetly EASY MODE.....especially with combos getting to the most meter and in this beta Kratos combo ability is unmatched....and super easy to do........just mash square thats it. Also because of lag sometimes his combo strings are unpunishable on whiff so that sucks.....but I feel like when the game comes out he will have greater competition

(nariko, dante, raiden). He can be beaten but in FFA with two on the feild it is pretty annoying
