The barrel isn't the problem, people not blocking it is.


Okay and I think his AK loop is a little BS :L

Oh no. It needs a nerf. Make it last less time, give WAY less ap, something. It's annoying.
When in doubt, freak 'em out.

That is all fine and dandy in 1v1. In FFA, if you spend all your time blocking cheap spammable moves, you most often are not going to be able to fight back because guess what you are still blocking.

 

IN FFA:

Spend half the time blocking Drake's barrel, which even after you block you cannot do anything because Drake's follow it up with their machine gun. So until they are done with both moves you remain in a block state. Also, then spend the other half of the time block Kratos' forward square.

 

I'm not saying blocking is impossible or bad or infeasible in FFA, in fact it's really good but less effective than in 1v1. In FFA the priority of attacks is very important. If every one of Kratos's medium and melee attacks are faster than Radec's, you have a problem in FFA. Yes when you block  and you have a chance to hit them back but the window of time you have to retaliate is greatly reduced when you have other characters spamming higher priority attacks as well.

 

Drake's barrel should have an ever so slightly longer cooldown time before it can be used again.

@Tekn0tize That's what the block button is there for and if you're always getting into situations where you're grouped up with other players who don't block then of course people will spam so either attack them to make them stop or avoid getting into groups that can be taken advantage of.

Also Drakes AK is unsafe onblock so if they just come at you after using a barrel they're wide open for a free super, throw or combo after you block it.

Smart Nathans tend to use his rope swing a lot more to get around and get in on people rather than just run to a ledge or corner and kick barrels all game.

Seriously, anyone willing to defend the barrel is either a drake user or an idiot. It trips you, gives drake lots of ap and can be on the stage constantly.
At least one of those needs to be scaled back. Alot.
When in doubt, freak 'em out.
