Get better at it, he is saying he is annoyed by The Radec Spammers, when you can simply dodge them or grab Radec to knock his Ap out. This game is about strategy if it frustrates you that bad, then don't go online because if this game gets competitive players like Melee well then were all pretty much screwed..and if you get bored with it then quit playing it so much...give it some rest...


Since reading comprehension seems to not be your forte, let me try to break down what I said a little more to your level.

 

1.  The main thrust of my post was not a complaint about Radec spammers.  I was pointing out some inherrent flaws in the current build that takes the fun out of the game, like certain level 3's being vastly unbalanced.  Notice I only mentioned Radec and Sly's level 3, since Kratos' level is dodgeable, whereas Radec and Sly's are not, unless you are Sly yourself and can be invisible. 

 

2.  Also, since you did mention Radec spammers, saying "just get better," is stupid.  Read my post again and see how I mention the difficulty of disrupting a tactic like Radec's when you have two other people trying to pound on you, ontop of a Radec who is constantly rolling and running and then snipping.  You can chase him across the screen, but IF he is a good Radec, he will know how to roll well and all he has to do is hit you once with his gun move to send you half way across the screen (or all the way across the screen if he knows how to combo with his sniper).  Like I said, this becomes tiring, because if you did get knocked back across the screen, depending on who you are using, it can take a good 20 secs to try work your way back across the screen, if another oponent doesn't lock you up first. 

 

Further, the advice, "just throw him" is as simple as telling a baseball player to "just hit a home run."  If a Radec knows what he is doing, throwing him becomes a chore.  NOTICE, how I am talking about players WHO KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING, NOT SCRUBS.

 

3.  I know a little thing about fighting games, as I have been playing them for almost 25 years now, since Street Fighter 1 in the arcades.  I'm aware of what the competitive scene is like for those games, but I am also aware of things like balance issues and how most players, especially the ones who compete, will flock to the characters with the most "natural" advantages, llike great supers, great AP gain and great normals with high priority.   People say that once the full 20 man roster comes out there will be more diversity of characters, BUT, if there are imbalanced characters, it will become like Street Fighter IV was online for a long time, where 75% online will be using these imbalanced characters.

 

4.  All these issues are coupled by lag.  I don't know how many times I try to jump over Radec's level 2 and it shows me well out of the range of the attack, only to die.  Same with Sly and Radec's level 3.  I am older, I have a wife and kids, and they do not play video games; online is very important to people like me, and there are people like me.

 

Anyway, the point of my post, which went over your head, was to point out that certain aspects of the game are making a guy who was a diehard fan of this game rethink his purchase, since some of the glaring issues are starting to wear on him.  If you don't like it, get better at understanding and respect and stop coming around here anymore.   I am not a troll or someone who has a chip on his shoulder about this game, I am a FAN and have had this game pre-ordered since E3 and follow multiple different forums for this game.  I think my opinion should matter a little bit, since Superbot wants to sell as many games as they can and if they start losing fans, then they are in trouble.

I see people get 5 kills on average with Sly's level 3. 

 

Show me a video of someone dodging Radec's level 3.

I see people dodge Sly's level 3 with ease, just use the air dodge.

 

I hardly ever see Radec get a level 3 so I can't say anything about him.

I'm still getting this game and I love Crash, Spyro, Super Smash Bros, etc. It's just that some of you fools on this forum kill the hype for others of not getting the game. Regardless of characters that I want in so bad who are not setting to appear, I will still respect this game and buy it, but people really won't buy this game cause of some of you all, Nintendo fanboys, or Third-Party fan boys.

I'm Not getting this game for Many reasons as well...

 

Heart RAYMAN'S SEXXXXXXXXXXXY GIRL FOREVER Heart


I can only count one reason though xD

 

Anyways to OP, if you don't know how to defend someone from getting a level 3, then this game just isn't for you, obviously.

This is how most of your games will be. You will get beat up and then you'll ragequit.

Don't get the game, because I will hate players like you, leaving just because you "know" people will get 5-6 kills with a lvl 3.

yea this game is going to be awful for more than just that, the roster size, the selection, how they implemented everything, the stupid chibi minions, and alot of other reasons. The second character reveal is what sucked the hype out of the game for me and then everything after that went down hill....

Omar - "what are you guys doing? Why did you get rid of crash!"
Game devs - "we wanted to put in evil Cole so we had to get rid of everyone else the fans wanted"
Omar- "Oh nice, good idea. I didn't think of that"

The roster balance is only bad for people who will bother going online.

 

I'm staying offline. Screw people.
