Post Patch Dante Discussion

10 replies 605 views Edited Mar 16, 2013
Just wanted to post a thread and see what people's opinions are on Dante as he'll be after the 19th. Any foreseeable problems? How does this patch help or worsen his combos? And what about his empty cancels?

Personally:
- the nerf to his counter doesn't make sense to me
- the ability to turn around mid combo is great
- I was really hoping for a guard break attribute, but tremor's increased AP is cool
- and finally, I'm excited to see what the new costume will be for him. (Seth said that there are new costumes planned for the third party characters).

I'm glad that they did some positive changes to Dante. He has the potential to become a high tier All Star. Hopefully this patch will help this happen.

 

One thing they should've added was to make his character icon back to normal. Whenever I choose Dante, I feel like I am choosing his father or something. Oh well.

Dante wasn't buffed.
They improved things that didn't need improving and possibly took away his Lvl 1 KC. He's still screwed by range characters and is still very unsafe.
They're nice changes, but they don't change the fact that he sucks.

Hopefully the fact that other characters got nerfed Newman's it'll be slightly easier to fight online.

And his supers now require less AP. I'm really satisfied with his changes as a Dante main

I'm really excited about being able to turn around mid combo now. It at least make it harder on those who simply dodge and wait for your combo to whiff, or those who sneak up and hit you while you're in the middle of a combo.

See, whenever someone tries to sneak up on me I just cancel into guns and then dash away. I think it's funny just abandoning the guy and seeing him get hit while you escape.

True true. But I know that I've been frustrated many a time when playing against kratos because after I successfully dodge his square attacks, he flips around and continues to get me anyway. So now I can do the same to him and others.
