Why Kratos needs to be nerfed or banned (from major 1v1 tournaments).

The video here explains and shows why. Please take the time to view it and give your feedback.

 

It may get a little difficult to see for a few seconds at times because the HDPVR 2 (what I record with) was acting up. I had other applications running on the computer while I was recording this so I guess that is why it messes up at moments. But the gameplay is not edited in any way.

 

 

 

Video Description: This video just explains my reasoning on why I believe Kratos on PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale should be nerfed or banned (from major 1 on 1 tournaments).He is very broken and it is easy to see once I point out a few things, like his priority on attacks, range and speed, and recovery frames, just to name a few things. I'm surprised they have not patched him yet, but they have to Raiden (taking away his toward throw property, making it knock down instead of knock back). Anyway, I'd enjoy any feedback that you have and hopefully you will agree with me that something needs to be done about Kratos. He may be the God of War, but that doesn't mean he needs to be, in most ways, the god of this game.

His learning curve isn't great at all. I just picked up Kratos for not even 15 minutes and was able to pull off a bunch of AP Burst combos with him without any real skill. His combos are mixed in in this video:

Every fighting game needs that one OP character, I'm pretty sure many people aren't playing competitively y'know? but maybe he needs more nerfs I guess.

That's true, like MetaKnight in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. But even he was banned (though it was for other reasons), he was still banned from major competitions. This should be the fate of Kratos if there isn't any patching that's going to be done.

Um...

Hate to break it to you, but I've only ever had a Kratos win a 1v1 tournament on my site ONCE and he was more of a secondary to Fat Princess on top of that.

He's actually much easier to beat in 1v1. FFA yes, I see his issues, but 1v1 he is punishable and exploitable even by many members of the cast.

Yeah you're right. His Up Square and Square x3 needs to be punishable like his Forward Square, THEN I'd say he's pretty much fine haha. But right now I agree he should be banned unless they change a few things.

I reckon they shoud just increase his AP
AP Meter Level 150/400/750
it should be 175/450/825
I am fine with how he plays just increase his AP Meter

No, not really. I used to main Raiden and yeah, he's easier to beat with him, but in no way is he "easy" to beat unless the opponent is brain dead. There are techniques against him that you can use, like keep-away, but he is broken and there's nothing that will change that except for a patch. Look at his properties and compare them to the other characters, then let me know if he's not scaled unfairly.

Oh, and the hilarity that you showed this against Kat, one of the possibly most broken 1v1 characters this game will EVER have...

She has a 0-lvl1 kill combo!

Yes, a combo that KILLS one touch death. Land an attack and you kill, do it three times.

Fat Princess had the same! 0 AP into death combo.

And Kratos is busted? Not in 1v1 he's not!

Ask the few hard core Kratos 1v1 players on my site, they'll tell you how hard some match ups are. And how their Kratos can be beaten by several characters of the cast while they flail hopeless to stop it.

You'll learn that is is VERY beatable.

I agree with the AP increase, but there needs to be some nerfing done. Look at the Sackboy patches; they increased his AP neccessary and they nerfed the amount of AP he got from attacks. Just increasing how much they need for their super isn't enough.
