I've been playing the beta of All Stars for a few days now, and I really enjoy it so far. Though, there is one thing I have a problem with, and as you may've already guessed, it's Kratos.
Not only does Kratos have the best attacks, which are really strong and cover an incredible distance, he also is pretty much the fastest guy in the beta, and can easily counter ANY special you try to perform. All the kids online are just massively mashing the square-button, which performs almost neverending combo's. He first smacks you in the air, then uses his chains to pull himself towards you and do this helicopter move. Besides that he builds up AP like an absolute madman.
Now of course we know Kratos uses attacks like before mentioned in God of War, and dominates there, but wouldn't it at least be possible to make it a bit harder to perform these attacks? Let's say, instead of JUST the square button, make it so that you have to hold a certain directional button while doing so? Also, I think it would help quite a bit if he wouldn't be so fast, and it would take a little more time to perform these attacks.
At last, Kratos Level 3, which is easily accomplished because of these enormous combo's, should be a little less powerful, I think. He has this energy blast he fires,which is fine of course, but I guess it would be a lot better if it wouldn't automatically hit any person. I've been playing as Sly, and I try to hide from Kratos 3rd level using the Invisible mode. But he just presses this one button(Not sure whether it's O or Triangle) and it's almost like it's self-controlled and generally demolishes me by itself.
At last, I'd like to say that besides Kratos, I've been enjoying the Beta a lot, and I can't wait for the final game!

If Superbot keeps making changes to characters because of whiny people who can't learn the game, we'll end up with horribly broken characters. Developers should never listen to the general public for balancing issues, it should be done in closed testing with small groups of people who really know how to play.
Alright everybody, first of all thanks for your inputs, and I didn't realise that SuperBot was fixing it already. Now, to Levi_Skardsen, I'm not whining. It's just true that he's too overpowered. A friend of me and I have been playing as Fat Princess and Sly, and we've been pretty much winning every match since we got to know our characters. The only ones we couldn't take on was a team of 2 Kratos's. It's incredibly hard to get close to them because of these auto-aimed chains.
