Yeah... AI is no match for a competent opponent.

Lol the highest difficulty AI is not near as good as a skilled player....


You're right, but the problem is, going online is going into a legion of scrubs who do nothing but spam and lose horribly. People with actual skill are very, very unlikely to appear.

 

I would rather fight easy to break AI's than Kratos all day every day.

It's frustrating when you're nearing a level 3 and one player constantly goes out of his way to grab you - but it's also necessary. No other move (except for items) take away AP, and when you know an opponents about to reach their crucial super, you've got to prevent it the only way possible.

As annoying as it can be when it seems like it's completely unavoidable within the situation (i.e. FFA or 2v2 where one opponent keeps attacking you while another takes advantage of the moment to grab), it's completely understandable and a legit tactic. I do the same when I see a Sackboy or Radec about to make level 3 - because I know once they hit that, it's most likely over (more so in some cases then others).

By the way, this isn't your first complaint seemingly based off of one match you've played, so instead of calling everyone cocky for knowing how to counter it, try actually learning how to deal with it.

I feel like there should be nothing that takes away AP and a grab should give like 20-30 AP instead. If you earn your AP you should be able to keep it

That's nice and all, but why did you give him kudos earlier?

 

And to the OP, have you thought of using this tactic you hate so much on your enemies? Make it your strength, and if nothing else you'll learn its flaws and thus be able to avoid it better.

so you're saying if some dude spammed his way to get a lvl 3, he earned it?

seriously, that sounds like a horrible idea...

Yes. The only spam that annoys me is grab spam the rest is pretty **bleep** beatable.

Those of us who know what we're doing tend to play each other more than jump into the ranks of scrub infested ranked play. Go look on Pasta League Stadium or All Star Arena for some competent opponents.

That would be pretty broken actually... Your idea rewards mindless play.

Personally, I see grabbing as a sign of desperation. People will tail you like crazy just to grab you out of a Level 3... however, and this does work, but it's rare, if opponents manage to grab you, it can be counter-blocked if you manage to grab the opponent at the same time. I've done it before in a Ranked Match, and it saved me from losing my Level 3. I won the match afterward.

Haha, I remember you OP, you were Ratchet and you sent me an angry message. Hear me out, both you and Dante were near Level 3 and I was trying to secure my win with my Sweet Tooth, Dante was the easiest to dodge as we were in Invasion, while Ratchet's fills up the screen, so I had to prevent Ratchet from reaching it. I wasn't spamming grab though, I used Sweet Tooth's mines, shotguns, and machete to keep you down and not get any hits in. Grabbing is punishable, it keeps me grounded which is bad for Sweet Tooth cause he needs to keep moving.
