Why does people conplain when a spamming character is changed so they can't spam?

10 replies 186 views Edited Dec 9, 2012

Seriously why? Is it really hard for you guys to actually train with a character and play smart. I played as Sly and beat a Kratos, A Raiden and a Evil Cole and i came first. I'm great with Jak i think at least. Parappa i think i'm good enough and with Ratchet i'm pretty good. I don't understand why people are conplaining because Superbot made the game more fair. The whole point of the game is using skill to win not sitting spaming cakes (Sackboy) or using overpowered combos (Kratos). Anyway i just wanted to say that if you train with characters and learn their skills it's very possible to beat overpowered characters Smiley Happy.

Kratos has fine combos. You should have the skill to not let him use them on you then...

Because it completely ruins the character in general by changing they're whole design, those spamming are easy to defeat so basing a balance nerf based on someone who's easy to beat is ridiculous.

No it does not. The whole point is using skill. Sackboy can just spam in a corner all day and get his level 3. Kratos can use a chain to grab characters half way across the screen and use a huge combo to get loads of AP. Sackboy's was not ruined. Just now you have to learn better ways to use him instead of spamming. Tell me where in LBP do you see Sackboy sitting spamming his cakeinator? If you really think it ruins a character then stop conplaining and go and learn how to use another character. People say Jak is crap (I think people are saying he's crap) but i'm doing great with him.

@ryannumber3gamer Generic spam is easily bypassed with experience. Everyone complained about Radecs sniper spam in the beta yet when's the last time they complained about that now? Radec still has better keepaway moves than sackboy since all of Sackboys can be broken and are much slower. Over time people learned how to get passed generic spam by simply chasiing after him constantly and attacking him at close range where he's vulnerable.

People didn't do this with Sackboy and instead complained and complained and now Sackboy can't fight at long range or close range efficiantly at all. That's like deciding to make every attack PaRappa does only give him 1AP because he's good at close range...

But thats the thing. I'll agree that maybe Sackboy has been leveled down but it does not change the fact that before he was broken because of spamming. I don't want to have to spend a match trying to take care of a Sackboy while trying to dodge cake or jelly. But Kratos is completely broken. He can grab someone to make them come to him for a giant combo. I was a match where a Kratos got 2 level 3's because he was so overpowered.

@ryannumber3gamer You can block Kratos' side square attack or plow through it with armored attacks. It has a lot of recovery time so when you block it Kratos is vulnerable for quite some time. So if he's just spamming it senslessly block it and then combo, throw or super him and he'll get the idea it won't work on you.

Sackboy was never a problem either, just stay close to him and throw him when he tries to roll away from you (you can throw people dodge rolling) Least that worked for me, not sure if anyone else actually tried it.

I don't see how you managed to block Kratos' attacks. Because usually he attacks throws me in the air or traps me in a corner.

 

Also for people crying about Sackboy. I was in a match today where a Sackboy got level 3 without using jelly or cake. He used the jet pack attack and close up fighting and the electric jump pads.

@ryannumber3gamer You can block Kratos' chain grab or dodge it in the air and then just punish him for using it.

That must have been against some pretty odd players if that worked, Sackboy is horrible up close compared to the likes of PaRappa and Raiden.

You can't spam with sackboy anymore.
The spammers appear to have switch to Cole/Cole 2 now.
