Fatal Blows must be changed

they aren't even safe, they just have a massive amount of pushback, which most of the time its kinda impossible to punish without proper tools.
So they’re safe Eddy lol. Erron Blacks amp f4 says it’s -10. That should be a jab punish, but with 300m of pushback it ain’t happening.
 
This is not to encourage a debate. This is reserved for everyone who wants to shut their console off every time they see one of these things and loudly express their discontent.

NRS you've successful made the worst mechanic in your history of 5 games.

The neutral is shut down when characters like Geras can walk half screen and win a match he was losing the entire game.

We understand you thought you were being creative with these cinematic. They're atrocious. They're not animated well. They are game breaking. And they spit in the face of players who spend hours in the lab.

Make stricter requirements immediately.
Mad it is changed used to recharge more than once a match. If they were losing all match how you lose two rounds ?
 
this thread should be locked. You do not even want to discuss it, or ask for help. You just want to complain becuase you can't be bothered learning the mechanisms of the game and how to play it. Sad.
This thread is to bring attention to a horrible mechanic they designed. There's nothing to learn when Erron Black blasts you full screen with armor. It's a scrub mechanic and everyone who is upset with the direction they took it should have a place to voice their concern. If you really think there's "something to learn" here when the damn thing comes back a few seconds later, then you're really just a lost cause.

Fatal blows ARE unsafe. Are you guys trolling or what? Only one I think that isn't is Erron Blacks? But it's a high.


Why are you guys so bad? That said, Erron's could use a nerf. As could Kabals and the other ridiculous ones. But saying "Make them unsafe on block" is stupid seeing as how EVERY SINGLE ONE is. Besides Errons.

Op, you don't like the MK-Blue Shell? What are people going to do about getting their @ss kicked if they take away the MKBS?

Can you imagine someone winning a huge tournament with one of those? That would be disgusting.

What they should do with the mechanic:

  1. Move becomes available at 25% or lower health.
  2. Move is only available on the final round of the match.
  3. Move requires a full offensive and defensive bar to activate.
  4. Move does 30% damage max (no matter what) and scales in combos.
  5. Move goes away if blocked or whiffed.
  6. Move is -4 on block/whiff (loses turn).
  7. Move has no armor.
This all makes it less frequent, require risk/reward/meter management and not as throw-it-out-friendly.

They also need to remove chip kill. People are taking dot-damage while laying on the freaking ground. lol! It's a dumb system in a game where normals do chip and conflicts with skilled neutral play. You're being punished for doing what you're supposed to do when attacked.

Kabal doesn’t need a nerf
His FB can be interrupted the first 2 frames and also blocked and full combo punished

He says fuck you to all FBs out there thanks to the Dragon Kick.
I’m fine with FBs since they saved me a lot of times. When someone uses it against you you complain but you forget about the times it helps you win.

Two things. Fatal blows should take at least 12 seconds to come back. And they need to add a mechanic that allows both people to press a button thus agreeing to skip the animation

I don't think any NEEDS a nerf besides Erron's. But Kabals is insanely powerful and dictates the entire pace of the match, so yeah it could use a nerf. I don't really want any nerfs though. They're not armored on startup and if you get hit you pretty much fucked up. Not to mention they're all basically massively unsafe as you could dash and jab punish like all of them.

-Make it so you have to cancel into them, no raw usage (byebye wakeup-FB, byebye mash-in-strings-FB, byebye yolo-FB)
-If used the FB is gone, on hit, on block (whiff shouldn´t be able to work anymore when only cancelable)
- Minus40 on block, all of them

I personally just giggle when I get hit by them now and roll my eyes. Getting angry brings me nowhere so why not just laugh it off.

Its pretty clear the people behind the design team in NRS don't know the concept of risk/reward.

Its just ALL REWARD.
 
you guys all know that pressing 3 during the fatal blow hits reduces damage, and opposite increases damage, making the cinematic sequence actually an interactive part of the game right?

but yea make it one attempt only- if you try, its done

lol how is he losing the entire game if it's 1-1 and you're ~400 damage away from death and get caught???

I think there's more going on then the fatal blow here....
When you say there is more going on than the fatal blows, surely you're referring to the busted ass krushing blows, yes?

If the fatal blow was the deciding factor in the match, are you really sure he was “losing the entire game?”

Would you be less mad if you got hit with a 30% combo?

Either way, you didn’t block it. You lost.
