May 5th 2013: Got my Radec eviscerated by whaatxddd's radec in 1v1. Kmart, u better watch out.
Just learnt "Drake" and is now learning "Nariko".
KMart, it's pity to read this, I thought you were doing really well with Radec, looking at your video thread. What happened that caused your change in mind?
well i have thought about it since i read this before i left for work but i think if he were to have his moves revamped, why not have one button be his cloaking until he attacks (not cloaked as long as you hold said button). this will help with his sniper set ups, confuse opponent and allowing you to get distance, sneaking up for melee or grab attack since he has good combo potential from his up grab. idk just a thought.
I've been in the same boat, it's crazy how well I can do with radec, and other times he just gets outclassed too easily. I've been trying to find some new tactics with him still one involving spinning his down square grenade, but I think the wall combo set ups are all he has really going for him.
As fOr his moveset, I find it relatively solid, no need to give him a new moveset, just tweak his current one a bit... I don't want to go crazy but these seem to be some good ideas:
His forward square is good, but very punishable. I'd like the ability to be able to just forward slash with his knife, with the option to pistol blast( like how ratchet can cancel his third pistol blast that knocks back).
I think his up square should serve as an uppercut. Again, I find it silly he can't square square up square, unless it's BD.
I'd like an ability to be able to knife parry or go invisible. If it was to replace a move I'd replace it with his arc cannon up circle.
Hopefully this would help beef up his game slightly. This guy has only a handful of decent matches and even those aren't much in his favor. His projectiles are somewhat uses on th smaller characters, and he is somewhat map dependant. And a fromunda said for a projectile character he gets out camped very easily against ratchets and the Coles.
I am super excited to see how radec plays with emmett tho.
If you look at these comments, some of these people are big Radec mains, especially Fat_Slapper and even HE agrees that he needs some fixing. He doesn't need too much because I could work greatly off of what Superbot would change with him. We need to get Superbot's attention on this. His existing moves should have more properties for them, or even replace a move (I was thinking up circle as well). I don't like making a buff thread, really. It's weak. But I've had enough with it. As Fromundaman said, you find the exploits and counter them, Radec just becomes terrible. Ask Fat_Slapper, I try all kinds of tactics but the only way they would work is against another Radec, I've tried against other characters and they don't work cause Radec doesn't have flexibility. And yesterday I was in the heat of the moment, that's why I made this, but I still do believe he needs tweaks.
