Zeus seems a little OP (NOT HATE THREAD)

9 replies 431 views Edited Feb 27, 2013
Please note that I'm not completely against Zeus. He looks like a unique character, and while not my first decision, I still like 'em. But his moves seem a bit OP.

He's able to charge nearly all of his moves, create clones, teleport, generate AP very quickly, seems great with combos, and he somehow generates AP after a certain attack that leaves his body covered in electricity. He seems… really difficult to beat.

Your opinions?

His slow startups keep him very unsafe and vulnerable. Would be easy to knock him out of attacks

Doesn't surprise me that he's OP. I mean according to the character managers or whatever, every god of war characters has to be totally cheap.

All of his attacks are telegraphed.

^^ Zeus is armoured. Good luck comboing him in mid-attack.

I was wondering about this too as he generates AP like crazy, but his startups seem really slow so I have a feeling he's going to be dodged a lot (as blocking isn't an option lol) like Emmett's forward square.

I pointed this out in another thread but It seems relevant to your discussion.

Zues can pull 90 AP out of a single charged move.

 

In 2x Overtime that ammounts to 180 AP instant level 1

In 3x Overtime that ammounts to 270 AP 2 hits to level 2

In 4x Overtime that ammounts to 360 AP instant level 2, 2 and a bit hits to level 3...

 

LOL, guess who will probably dominate overtime.

Zeus has slow start up on his melee attacks. You know how people are in this game, mostly dodging and jumping. I see more Zeus users just sticking to his bolt attacks.

 

The dedicated users devoted to learning him will know how to incorporate all of his moves into battle. Can't wait, it'll be great!

The issue for me is the following:

 

- Armored Attacks that can Guard Break, and generate 82 AP in 2 hits.

 

If the attacks weren't armored, or didn't guard break they would seem fair.  Many say he will be easy to dodge, but it looks like his start ups on non-charge attacks are not so bad.  So, IF the game allows a non-charged hit followed by a charged hit, things could get rough.
