Re: Kratos is NOT overpowered because...

I don't main Kratos. Allow me to state that he is a garbage character.
The only reason that I hope he stays how he is is so that people keep using him. Why would I want that you ask? Because he is one of the easiest character to beat in 1v1s, and he's pretty easy in 2v2s as well, except maybe on Drake's stage.

Now if you're playing FFA, then yeah I can see why you're upset, but you should be able to understand why you don't balance a fighting game around FFAs. EDIT: Oh, and about the consensus from beta, that also means FP sucks and that Parrapa's boombox gives retarded amounts of AP right?

Well the problem is that this is based off of Free for all.. kratos is op. It's not even an opinion. He just is. This game is far from balanced, its almost impossible to play this competitively like I do with uncharted, LoL,, hot shots golf, and plenty of other atleast semi balanced games. I'm not saying the game is bad, but it just insists on being competitive, when it really can't be. It's a lot of fun playing with me mates and family though. Maybe they should've focused on JUST that.

Actually, if you play it in 1v1, the game is really very well balanced.

The real problem isn't so much the character balancing, it's the lack of 1v1 ranked online option.

My problem is that the few 1v1 games I have done the other player just uses raiden, who can easily combo you into his level 1. I don't really like 1v1 all that much, it'd be cool if they added it to ranked mode as it would probably be more competitive than FFA.

Kratos is not a garbage character XD I'm curious, how many kratos spammers do you see? I see alot more sackboy, sly, drake and radec spammers than kratos. And when I do see a spamming kratos he's easy as hell to beat. The fact is people would whine about him no matter what because he is the god of war and more or less the face of Sony. And Nariko from Heavenly Sword is pretty much based off of kratos (his blades and armor are even an in-game easter egg) Why aren't there more people whining about her forever long combos and unbelievable range? Oh that's right because she's not kratos.

Kratos is only good in laggy FFA games where his side square is guaranteed to hit at least something due to the lag making it near impossible to time a block or dodge. In offline he's really not that hard to deal with and in 1vs1 his supers are incredibly slow and can't be combo'd into.

I'd like to see him nerfed. I like his playstyle and when I went to see what all his combos were it was a complete surprise, because after all those matches with Kratos in them, almost every combo was new to me. Maybe if he got nerfed I wouldn't feel awful using him and Kratos' name would be restored as a semi-comboer character that took a little skill. Right now players don't have to combo or even think rationally with him because of his ap gain, if he's supposed to be the character that teaches the game to players than I guess this game is about square square square mixed with side square with a hint of up square.

I agree, it doesn't teach you that the game takes skill just that one button is all you need, I like the god of war games, Kratos has an amazing story, but my point is that he's cheap, right there with sackboy's constant cake and jelly spamming and Raiden, Dante, and Nariko. Other than sackboy, they're all pretty easy to beat, it just gets old to fight them over and over and over. Hack and slash users, try out sir dan or  fat princess for crying out loud, show us that you can do something other than press square, I refuse to call you a decent player until i see you use a character that spams 

 

SIR DANIEL FTW!

The problem is Kratos's attack are so fast and take priority over most other attacks. Which is why stuff like chain grab from afar are so damaging and lead into more combos.
