Hey all. After testing the beta for sometime, I've fulfilled its purpose and came across a huge problem.
Level 3 Special cutscene attacks!
These are just plain horrible and I'd hate to say it, but useless in almost many cases.
I can understand that a cutscene special attack is unavoidable and 3 kills confirmed no matter what, but is it worth the build up and time?
I've been maining with PaRappa. I have only ever used his Lv 3 TWICE. Both times I never won. It was either Radec, Kratos or Sweet tooth that got the win with their Lv 3 specials being used... TWICE. And please don't tell me that it involves skill to get kills with them. It takes almost no skill at all really, even if another skilled player could dodge these attacks, it's not likely all will be able to and can easily still pull off 4+ kills without trying to hard.
Heck, I've found PaRappa's Lv 2 WAY more useful than his LV 3, I've managed to get 4 kills with it twice if you time it properly and where.
Don't get me wrong, I like the idea behind Lv 3 cutscene attacks but it's just not... Useful..
If a Lv 3 Special Cutscene attack is used, You're AP bar does not fall down all the way back to 0, Maybe make it fall back to 1. Or increase the AP gain for 30 seconds or something.
It's currently just not worth it.
BUT, that doesn't mean I don't like the game. It's very fun and I'm happy that I got to test it. Kudos, SuperBot! I can't wait for Thanksgiving, it will be an event of the year!
Well i had an idea to solve this. By putting a button como you have to press. I dont want to go into detail but i have made a better idea than what i first did.
Once people learns to dodge and roll, yes. Today I meet some kick **bleep** Radec that rolled around my Parappa's lvl 2 three times in a row. Against awful players it's obviously not useful, but let the game evolve.
Remember that nobody has a fully amazing set of Supers all-around. They're all good in some way.
You may think they're bad now when people can't dodge for crap, but when skilled players learn to react to Kratos' level 3, you might not get the 7 kills that you were used to getting in the beta...
