Spam is disgusting.

30 replies 540 views Edited Nov 22, 2012

I've played a ton of match making tonight, and everyone freakin spams.  EVERYONE who is Kratos spams 1 or 2 moves, everyone who's Drake spams his ridiculous triangle/punch combo, it's just gross.

 

I'm sick of people getting ap quick as hell from pushing one or two buttons the whole match.  They've gotten praise for having "every fighter having tons of work done on them" yet it's clearly obvious others were overlooked.  Why can certain characters spam like mad but others try to spam and they get like 10 ap per attack.

 

There needs to be a fix, it's laughable.  Just pick a character that you can spam the most with and there you go, instant champion of the world.  

 

Oh yeah and the ranking system is flawed.  One of my friends got stuck in a glitch and we lost the match because the big daddy was sitting on the middle of the map collecting AP from the map and raiden was over there attacking him repeatedly and there wasn't anything he could do about it....so we lost 10 rank because they cheated.  I went over to stop him too but guess what, I just got stuck in his goddamn combos.

Or they could just fix spamming and people could stop coming up with pathetic excuses.  It was bad enough when it was just Kratos but a lot of the new characters have spammable attacks.

The thing about people who do one move is just that.....you have to out think a scrub to beat one.....if they keep doing the same move you should be learning how to defend it....think of it as free practice. There will always be casual people in fighting games that spam one move, thats just the way it is....not the glitch thng.....that sucksSmiley Sad

This is how it is in almost any fighting game to be honest.

Translation: People are being better than me and using tactics that I can't seem to figure out.



Also, how the hell can you accuse Big Daddy of spamming, or, while I understand being frustrated by Drake (Or any other decent keepaway character) spam, you're complaining about his melee attacks?!

"Translation: People are being better than me and using tactics that I can't seem to figure out." Ok just no to this is this the case sometimes yeah but not always. It's getting old seeing people say crap like this it's not funny, it's sad because some people bring up legit points then you always have the sarcastic a-s-s hole that has to say something like this. Face it people do spam a lot some characters have moves that are perfect for it. It has nothing to do with somebody's skill level that's garbage, and the moves people spam are usually pretty hard to avoid no matter how good you think you are.

Spam is disgusting, but most casual players and some pros do it all of the time. Based on the Beta gameplay, Kratos was very quick to gain AP. However, there's always a way to get past those spammers. If I remember correctly, his ground Fwd + Square move was particularly annoying to me, but blocking & dodging works well for that particular move (at times).

Tell you what, give actual examples and arguments, and we can have an intelligent discussion.
Vaguely complain about spam (PUNCH SPAMMING AS DRAKE FOR GOD'S SAKE! How is that a legitimate point?!) and you will receive a sarcastic reply.

Honestly, most of it can be countered by good blocking, or in teams with good teamwork/synergy.
If you're complaining about FFA, I'm sorry but you really can't balance a game around FFA, so you should expect some things to be kind of dumb in that mode.
