How are Raidens moves too unblockable? His nerf made his moves EVEN more blockable.
You serious? I am a blocker, i have been since the smackdown vs raw games back in 2002-2010, i can block like a warrior. Raiden hits you ONCE, and you are down, setup to get hit 5-6-7 times all while my finger is on the L1 button.. problem? well the problem is once he goes to hit you, you skillfully block, by the time the block ends, he is still swinging away to to insane speed and sword range, no escape. All but the initial hit Unblockale.
Yes, he has a KC off of a grab. Yes, he has a guard break move that can also KC. Yes, he has quite a few other KCs as well as many ways to pull off a burst.
Wanna know what he doesn't have?
A reliable defense against zoning or traps. He is absolutely dedicated to melee range, and when you look at characters like Kat, Isaac, the Coles, Ratchet, and FP, you can see why he's not exactly in the running for most OP.
He's definitely a really good character with an almost excessive amount of ways to kill, but he has his limits.
At least, that's just me.
