Do you think Raiden's Level 1 wouldn't be SO good if...

8 replies 287 views Edited Feb 1, 2013
...he couldn't activate it halfway through a previous attack's animation? Sorry if this has been mentioned before, I was messing around with him in Practice mode, and I found that practically any attack of his can be cut short (long before animation finishes) by mashing R2. I tried doing this with a few other characters to further test my new discovery, and found that Raiden takes the cake. It makes so much sense to me now why he's so good, and why every attack seemingly acts as a kill confirm. His so-called 'kill confirms' aren't actually kill confirms at all (according to the attack display); it's just that his Level 1 is essentially a cancel move (like Dante's). Shouldn't R2 be locked out until his previous attack finishes? That would make his numerous standard attacks/'kill confirms' at least POSSIBLE to get out of... And yes, I would support the same for all other possible cases too, in case I'm missing some other 'cancel Supers'.

Radecs level 1 is easily dodged. And I'm not really sure what you're talking about, Raidens forward square and then super, and then air dash then super are the easiest kill confirms in the game.

They're also really really obvious. Now that he doesn't have grab setups, it's really hard for him to land kills against attentive opponents. Not impossible by any stretch, but difficult.

Jeez just stop. You say this in every thread that you get the chance and it's one of the worse level 1's.

Update: After further testing this, I found that Raiden's Level 1 doesn't really 'shortcut' out of attacks any faster than his normal attacks like I previously thought. The real problem is, much like Kratos' square attacks, some of his attacks just have virtually no recovery time from one to the next in the first place (including his Level 1). So instead, couldn't they add some recovery time in between his attacks (again, including his Level 1)?
