Is Anyone Else Sick Of Raiden's Side Sq + R

20 replies 557 views Edited Mar 18, 2013
It's so easy to pull off and guarantees a kill 99% of the time. Why should a level one be so assuring of a kill?

Copy and pasted from another thread of mine.  May you find it useful....                                        

After reaching the FFA black belt in the 2 seasons it's been too time consuming for me. I'm not going to bother with the team black belt again it just takes too long and with a decent partner you find here or at the PS3 forum it should be a piece of cake.

I've decided to share a tip against Raidens who abuse the level 1 hit confirm in FFA ranked.

1. WIth Kratos, get a level 1.
2. Raiden's level 1 will overpower Krato's level 1 head on at best both will cancel each other out. When Raiden attacks a player from the left side be on the right side. When he attacks a player from the right side, be on the left side.
3. After he connects with the double forward slash intending to confirm into a level 1, do level 1 yourself towards the collison and that will lead to a double (or triple) kill. Even better, if you attack just after he does the level 1 he will have wasted it.

If you do it enough, this will force the Raiden to settle for a level 2 and take him off his game. I did this strategy on a brown belt who was well on his way to black and the level 1 combo was all he did. I got to play him enough times to figure it out and from there I just catapulted into black belt.

Don't you have to do the s1 twice for it to be a true confirm? I say this because some people have attempted the level 1 after only 1 s1 on me and if I'm playing a shorter cast member, I can duck under it. Sackboy wont get killed by Raidens level 1 even if  hes blocking. He crouches down just enough to be under it.

 

Maybe someone with the game on hand can try this out?

I mean, it's not just Raiden's side sq and R confirm.. it's just the fact that there are so many cheap ways to get kills in this mode. I'm tired of the KC's, it takes all skill out of the game and forces PSAS into a level 1 killfest. If only SB didn't add KC's to the game, then it would be fun. I don't mind being killed by a level one randomly, but an EC's Circle and R is utterly ridiculous.

IMO, KCs are better than guaranteed kills with all level 3s.  The game would be better if level 3s were kept only for offline gameplay.

I just hate how safe it is and how every raiden just keeps using it over and over, deserves to be patched

with the new patch they making it so that it wont be a confirm anymore, he cant control which direction he moves when he fires the super, and well be able to roll away with the frames shortened
