Why do people suddenly want Nariko nerfed?

10 replies 249 views Edited Feb 27, 2013

I've seen many people saying that she should be nerfed, specially her best moves and her level 3, and I have to ask why?

She is perfectly balanced and she is actually what Kratos should be as well, she's not weak I know, and her level 3 is godlike, but there is a reason of why her level 3 is so good, because her level 1 and 2 are terrible... you can get kills with her level 1 in all vs all, but it's unviable on 1vs1 and so is her level 2.

 

Most of her moves are VERY punishable if you avoid/guard them and her combo starters are unsafe as well, just learn to punish her, you'll see she's not as good as you thought

 

oh and her AP gain is not the best one in the game...

My best guess is that her shirld toss move is a move that can be short hopped, meaning if it's preformed in the air low enough to the ground, she can act again as soon as she touches the ground. Drake and Ratchet are also guilty of abusing this kind of strategy. It really cheapens the move and destroys the whole point of giving the move recovery time. I think if you're gonna nerf her (and everyone else for that matter), have cooldown time from her shield toss (and Ratchet's Plasma Shots, Spike's Stun Cannon, Drake's everything, etc.) migrate to her landing.

Right now, one thing about Nariko that definitely needs to be nerfed is her counter. It's just like Sly's; no recovery time so it's easily spammable. Compared to Kratos', Dante's, and especially Heihachi's counters, it's unreasonably hard to punish.

 

Also, yeah, I think it's mostly her shield that needs nerfing. Her cannon is okay because if Nariko does it in the air, the recovery on the move still remains when she hits the ground. But that's not true for the shield, allowing it to be easily spammed. That move wouldn't be spammed if its recovery remained after she landed.

 

Oh, and it gives TWENTY AP? Just as much as her cannon, which is much slower, has less range, and much more recovery? No wonder people keep spamming it; that move definitely needs a nerf.

I agree with the shield toss, it is one of the best projectiles on the game imo, and as a Nariko player you should spam it as much as possible, if you're going to nerf her nerf that move... but let's remember it's also the only way she can get a kill confirm with her level 1.

Sly's counter is much better than Nariko's, but yes, Nariko's is better than most counters on the game

That's what people used to say about Sackboy- but look a him now...
Nariko's level 3 lasts waaaaay too long and you can even EXTEND it a few seconds after it is supposed to end.
