Excuse me why on earth would even be "good" (lets ignore that the horizontal doesn t track…).. 4B+K B tracking is off the grid overpowered broken safe
Its i50 or what?
The aGI is a tool against non NC strings (thus extremely situational) since the aGI window starts extremely late and also blocks only mids (not even all mids).
So if THAT is good NM armor is allmighty OP due to extremely early frame activation and being more versatile.
The actual proper comparison would be Raph 66B+K against NM 6BBBMaybe I was misunderstood, 3(B) done yolo is as useless as NM 6BBB done yolo.
Now 66B+K its extremely strong but requires some setup, mostly because raph lacks step threats outside stance (having mostly HIGH horizontals that don t even track properly differently from nightmare)
Even the damege despite being the top for Raph doesn t compare despite the higher risk and its mostly use to setup Frametraps and obviously no damage on block.
When a good move loses on EVERY aspect you see there is a problem.
Once again: do you know what a panic button is?It's the best tool Raph has against nightmare explosion as you can do it on reaction
Something you can use when you should NOT be attacking, its universal or almost universal and let you get away with it.
Another comparison Raph prep4 aGI:
This is what an answer should be: early frames activation BUT short window, intended to be used ONLY to work with a HARD prediction (2A) with proper timing.
In this case how does the explosion compare?
Terror stance, damage even on block, tracking and absorbing damage reducing it like it was blocked on SC long windown and KD, doesn t need to be in stance.
Or even the CE….
RISK/REWARD is totally broken.
You expect your opponent to stay on block (and still get damage) each time he earned frame advantage?
So you have a 50% mixup for more damage you could possibly expect AND KD each time your opponent attack without punishing.
That won't be possibly abused in tournaments being a 60:40 to 70:30 gamble where people prefers to rely on skill but its still ridiculously abusable if you can't face your opponent on even ground (or you are under pressure).
This is a stale old discussion already answered about universal GI, RE, and GI/armor CEs.
You are not expected to have an actual advantage at frame disadvantage.
This is the problem,,,,,you met super bad nightmare players. Onetrick ponies won't work even if you abuse voldo CE.It's working wonders for me on any NM i've encountered,
i am saving this sentence and come back to discuss it with you next patch. (adding that NM is not BROKEN is just OP, Voldo is Broken).There is a huge difference between top tier and broken, the kind of difference that justifies nerfs or not.
That will prove who between us were wrong.
(and Namco doesn t care about people opinion on forum when it comes to Balance).
P.S: even Raph AGcancel is 90% unintended as it is and will get a fix (in this case we are talking about a glitch not a balance issue).
No way an i10 can give +2 or +6 on block and high damage NC.
Its clearly one of the many holes in the strings that weren't tested properly it just comes if they see it as a good thing.[/quote][/QUOTE]
