In the case of "spammers" I want to even find out what's their mentality like as they're playing because I only see most of them stay in their Oni Form and use Down-Triangle. Air Down-Triangle in Oni is a great move to lead into combos if you know how to cancel to Toro's Henshin! Forms and use their Trianlge moves all within 1 second in a match.
In short, experienced players (just a guess) would use that move several times to find an opening to get a combo going, and average players would use it several times to...I dunno, play casually?
I would like other good and reasonable inputs on this, because Toro is a great All-Star character.
Kinda gonna call **bleep**, most Sackboy players are swarming Drake after the nerf. I've been playing every day for hours at a time and I see more fat princess then I do Toro (only ran into one today)
I mean I main Toro and all, but still. Someone said it best earlier, his ninja form is annoying to go against a lot due to the mobility, but it doesn't build **bleep** for meter. Justice builds it pretty quick and all of his moves go into each other if you can time it right, and Oni is his simplest skill set. Most people honestly just spam his down kick with oni because it lets them nail the ground down triangle hammer smash which builds alright AP on it's own. A good Toro knows not to do it and go into a combo though, and another thing I should clear up, dive kick into level 1 isn't garunteed to kill. Not sure if it's lag but you can mash out a roll fast enough depending on your character to dodge it so there's no reason to get rid of it.
okay, after I replied earlier, I've fought a decent number of Toro's who literally spam the oni stance. I've never seen Toro players play this bad before. Its actually depressing that they are ruining such a good character
To me it just makes sense that it took awhile for Toro to become popular because he is unknown to most non-Japanese gamers and he is more nuisanced than, say, Kratos or PaRappa. I just went through arcade mode with him recently and found hes one of my favorites.
And how can you resist that meow?
