Sly's Level 1 seems different...

10 replies 456 views Edited Feb 13, 2013
I can't say for sure, as it might just be my imagination, but Sly's Level 1 actually seems toned down a bit. Before the patch, I seem to remember Murray just cutting right through everyone, obliterating everything in his predetermined path...

Now, immediately at the time of initial contact with the first opponent he touches, Murray trips and falls right away, significantly decreasing his range (assuming the first kill is from up close, and ESPECIALLY if an opponent gets caught while standing right behind Sly)

When I discovered this in Practice Mode, I got excited because I never noticed it before! But it's also possible it's always been like this, because I almost never use Sly to begin with. It feels refreshing to see some creative, not-so-obvious solutions to balancing issues! Thoughts?

Murray always started falling over at the first impact, but because he's so **bleep** fast, it never mattered because he would fall on everyone else within the next 0.0000000000000000000001 second

I don't know, I've been caught standing behind Sly before, and I don't remember Murray stopping so short right after. I feel he's much more susceptible to slowdown.

I'm glad if this was true.

 

Sly's level 1 needed fixed.

 

Just hoped they tweaked Kratos and Raiden.

I just fought an Emmett online, and I think Sly will be old news with unbalanced Emmett's is. It has about the same startup time as Radec's, but unlike Murray, the laser shot or whatever doesn't slow down when it hits a target

Talk to me when Emmett can go invisible and launch an uninterruptible super. Kay?

I cancelled it only because I landed Kratos' level one on him milliseconds after Sly engaged his level 1.
