Re: Please make Raiden's combos slower or gain less AP

I guess he could use some tweaking but you can't complain about his speed. All characters are meant to represent who they are in their games. Raiden is fast and agile in his games so his character must represent that!

Ironically, he's always been despised in his own series as well. So, SB got that down to a science.

Not really, he got negative reations in his initial appearance in MGS2 but since his revamp as a ninja he's been pretty well recieved.

Raiden wouldn't be a problem if half of you knew how to play instead of always bringing up fake complaints. Get better. Block more.

Again, blocking doesn't help against the grab, which works while rolling.


 That's why you either roll away from them or wait until they grab and attack on their recovery. Should I just play for you?

Honestly, I've never had any real issues with him. MGS 1-3 had you playing different characters so they could all come together for MGS4. They were all part of a larger story.

I don't care too much for him AS a cyborg-ninja, anyway. It kind of detracts from the "Skills vs. Supernatural" idea that persists in almost every Metal Gear game. 

THEN AGAIN, this is a white-haired, cyborg-ninja in over-the-top unplayable fight scenes. I'm sure the anime crowd fell in love with 'em. :smileytongue:

His Forward+Square staggers with small recovery time which you can combo from his side grab which stuns. His air down+triangle also staggers and his forward+circle does too (but a longer recovery time)

His AP gain is fast, but I'd rather they fix his grab states than AP gain. Sure he can still kill you with an easy forward+square -> super, but it'll be one less definitive way.

Learning the game is hard. Let's nerf characters until whichever one you main is OP. I'm sure this is more effective than learning matchups and having pocket characters to deal with bad matchups. Raiden does have bad matchups, as well as even ones. Go use those characters a bit.

Making jokes is hard. Let's accuse everybody else of sucking as opposed to bringing glaring game flaws to the developer's attention.

Re: Please make Raiden's combos slower or gain less AP

Well, I've played against some of the people constantly **bleep** about these characters, then played people who are actually good with the characters. In every case player skill and matchup knowledge determined the outcome of the match. When you're playing a bad matchup, switch to a favorable one. Basically, this is a fighting game created with a fighting game mentality, and those complaining about it are 90% of the time casual players who don't try to play it competitively, but still want to skew the competitive balance.

That being said, I see you complain about characters a lot. Add me sometime and try these OP tactics, and we'll see if there isn't an effective way around them, okay?
