GL is good, he’s just excruciatingly fair and what you see is what you get with him
After her buffs I've always said it was a losing MU for GL. Can confirm it probably is true not only from my experience but from my Supergirl maining friend from the Kinetic Clan who is consistently in Top 20 for Player Match (such a shame he isn't able to travel much. He competes with players like Theo ). He strongly believes GL loses that MU.I used to think GL and SG was a clean 5-5 not so sure anymore these days.
Seems to be a common theme with NRS games.GL is good, he’s just excruciatingly fair and what you see is what you get with him
It's funny you said that cause I left GL for fate because everything gross said is the troof. A really good player will fist GL.I just switched mains from Fate to GL and I'm afraid Gross is right..
I personally would like a couple things:
- (buff) slightly increased combo damage
- (fix) improve hitbox on 123
- (fix) improve hitbox on lanterns might
They could do other things with GL, like make the boulder (currently -6 on hit) and the battery blasts better zoning tools cause right now he probably has the worst zoning out of all the characters equipped to zone. They clearly made his rushdown game worse with the intention of redesigning him with better zoning but his zoning options are worse than igau..
I really see 2 routes that they can take with Hal; reinforce his space control by buffing the frames on the zoning or slightly increase his damage so it's worth it when he opens you up.

GL doesn't suck,bro. You could try learning the Supergirl match up so you can defend against her bnb strings. And punish her if she does something unsafe. I don't think any character sucks in this game if you know the game system and have very strong fundamentals.I played a Supergirl with my GL and got beat up cuz he can't counterzone, she negates his neutral, she outdamages him now, and I can't just advance in cuz she has superior mobilty to just do whatever the fuck she wants. I switched to my 2 day Black Adam and mopped his shit...
GL sucks, he holds me back. He holds a lot of us back and some don't even realize it. Im playing Adam and Aqua until he gets fixed.
Yes he kinda does. I have a nice little essay typed up about why he sucks if you would like to take a read. I have already had one player who also said GL didn't suck discuss him with me for an hour, and he switched his opinion after I educated him about the character, and now realizes he is nowhere near as strong as he thought he was. I am prepared to discuss with more players.GL doesn't suck,bro. You could try learning the Supergirl match up so you can defend against her bnb strings. And punish her if she does something unsafe.

I gotchu. Here are 22 characters better than Lantern:Can you name 22 characters that are definitely better?
Ok I'm gonna need some explanations on why you think Black Manta, Bane, Aquaman, Wonderwoman, Black Canary, Atrocitus, Brainiac, Robin, Blue Beetle and Darkseid are better than Green Lantern.I gotchu. Here are 22 characters better than Lantern:
5. Wonder Woman
9. Red Hood
11. Dr. Fate
12. Black Adam
13. Green Arrow
17. Black Manta
18. Black Canary
20. Blue Beetle
Every single character on that list, except maybe Black Canary, either handle the cast better than he does and/or do not suffer from being a super meter dependent high risk low reward character like Green Lantern.Ok I'm gonna need some explanations on why you think Black Manta, Bane, Aquaman, Wonderwoman, Black Canary, Atrocitus, Brainiac, Robin, Blue Beetle and Darkseid are better than Green Lantern.
You asked for 22 characters better than Green Lantern, you got the list. Where in his post does he say anything about Aquaman being Top 5? I really hope you don't think he was making his personal tier list. He most likely was listing characters off the top of his head because we all know Wowo is not Top 5 and Adam is definitely not outside of the Top 10.Aquaman has fallen off the face of the Earth since his nerd. I agree he's still pretty solid but he is by no means top 5.
And now I think you literally just talking random ish because he said absolutely nothing about Darkseid being top tier. Are there 22 characters in the Top 10 in your world?Darkseid is whatever. It's 50/50s all day with trait and bunny hopping when you don't. You're gonna lose sometimes to it but does that mean he's top tier? Go over to his forums and you'll see people asking for neutral game buffs.
Fate has a lot of lopsided match ups? List every single one of them please. They must be a 3-7 or worse, and considering you said a lot, I am expecting at least 10.Dr Fate is probably being overrated right now. He's another character with maybe 2 all in character specialists who make him look broken and some really lopsided match ups but I think Fate loses a lot of lopsided match ups too. If can 7-3 Arrow then he can get 3-7 by a character like Darkseid with similar zoning speed and tons of ways around Dr Fate's tools.
She has weakness, but none of them are nearly as bad as Green Lantern's weakness which I feel like you probably don't understand what they are. Would you like to read my short essay on what those weaknesses are and why he actually does sucks? I feel you would benefit from it.Wonder woman. Another favorite of mine probably because you see Yungmonster putting in work online and think that makes Wonderwoman amazing. Hell no. She has tons of weaknesses. It's just that people don't respect the hours these people put into making their mediocre characters look broken. The same thing happened with Sonicfox and Captain Cold.
You summed him up perfectly. Throw in poor risk/reward and that's Hal.He reminds me too much of mkx Kenshi for me to deal with him anymore. Terrible back dash, "space control" with gigantic holes that justify his bad frames up close, a complete lack of safety on special moves, negative.on.hit.specials! and fake pressure that no opponents lab to show in tournament because he's not good enough to lab against.
It's a bummer because he's so close to being fine, which is all I need.
