[ Edited ]
13 replies 409 views Edited Feb 13, 2013

This will be a community list of the pros(+) and cons(-) of the new characters. Please input your opinions on them via response below.

 

Kat:

 

+ Freedom to move about the air(similar to Jak)

+Long strings of combos, easy AP bursts

+Down Circle allows for pulling in opponents, easy combo setup

+Can use object projectiles to keep combos going, stuns opponents

+Has a dashing slide which can setup combos

+Can lead into combos with down throw

+Several kill confirms(untested)

+Can combo out of nearly every move

-Has little control in the air when not in a combo, unorganized feel

-Few ranged options

-High AP combos must start with opponent grounded(though this is true for most characters)

-Low jumping ability

-Dashing is difficult to control/learn

-Hard to generate AP without combo-ing

 

Emmett:

 

+Has 3 loadouts for versitality

+Can generate AP via neutral circle

+Area/crowd control via side circle

+Has both ranged and melee options

+Can lead into combos with up throw

+Can tech chase with down throw

+Grenades/Stickies force opponent to block

+Aimable guns

+Tech chase with shotgun loadout

+Has many stun setups for combos

+Has access to all 3 loadouts at once, if placed with proper spacing

-Does not have many combos worth setting up for(as far as I'm aware)

-Square moves have poor range and reward

-Feels limited by how few options there are close ranged

-Cancels circle drops if hit

-Lacks many useful moves outside of projectiles for AP gain

-Stage dependent

-Turrets easily destoryed

-Has few options when pressured and doesn't have a loadout equipped

Can we elaborate on this "15 years?"

Kat is super difficult to level upgrade. I've been level 36 with her for the longest!!! It's annoying. It upgrades after the match; it says I'm 50 levels high, but it still shows 36! Smiley Sad

 

Emmett has too many weapons that sit on the stage for too long and it is an eyesoar Smiley Sad

These really aren't relevant to the way the characters play.

I'm guess one thing you can add for Kat is that there's a bit of a learning curve to her air dash ability. It's probably just me, 'cause I've had a few unfortunate instances at Alden's Tower where I fell off the stage and dashed under the floor because I'm so used to the standard double jump mechanic. So, there's my piece.
