    And no. No Kenshi allowed. I don't think his stuff counts as a projectile... Does it? Anywho, who would have the least change from losing their projectile(s)?

    Probably Sindel...

    Playpal said it perfectly. Maybe Sonya as well.

    Lol, nightwolf for sure. He loses nothing, unless we are counting lightning too.

    Cage only loses frame advantage with ex.

    Quan chi. Sheeva.

    That's about it imo.

    cyrax losing his projecitle properties of ex saw wouldnt be too bad

    Quan wouldn't lose too much, i agree, other than in the Kitana match up, his skulls are quite useful there. ..Sheeva too, although her projectile is nice to close a round out, since its rather big and hard to jump, AND it hits mid, can't duck it (hell, ex fireball hits overhead)

    Raiden and Baraka

    Johnny Cage needs his force ball for EX FB pressure
    Nightwolf uses his arrow for the "Fly Trap"
    and Rain uses his bubble in combos.

    Quan Chi has EX frame advantage when hit confirmed in a string and dat EX fireball overhead? Sheeva needs that lol it does SO much damage plus it's a mid hitting projectile when not enhanced.

    I counted net as a projectile. Would assume cyrax players would miss that...a bit.

    The on hit advantage with quan and nightwolf is so so imo. On block advantage is where its at.

    Very true and agreed 100%....just saying it's part of their game.

    Characters like Raiden and Baraka need their projectiles the least. (334 ex li....nm we all know what happens there)

  18. Well, Sindel needs it lol. Her combos won't be affected, but her overall game would.

    I'd say baraka

    Nightwolf by far has the absolute worst projectile in the game. Eh arrow is sometimes useful but overall, his arrow is pointless. That's why I wish it guaranteed a lightning or a safe jump like other characters.

    But nightwolf is the answer your looking for.

    As a Nightwolf main, I can say for sure that the arrow is absolutely useless against a seasoned player. Everytime you hit an arrow, you probably could've went for ex lightening instead. It starts up too slow and recovers too slow, so it's only really safe from full screen against someone who can't teleport or counterzone, which is only like.....maybe eight characters?

    I wouldn't really count the lightening as a projectile, it's more like Quan Chi's runes except if it autotracked, was unblockable, and was much more balanced then it appeared on paper.

    In terms of playstyle, rain and nightwolf would stay largely the same without their bubble and arrow respectively. Nightwolf more-so since Rain can use his bubble for resets and meter drain. JC also wouldn't change much since JC would still be the best rush down character without ex fb. Using ex fb for anything else (meaty pressure, closing space) is pretty gimmicky.

    I'd mention baraka but almost every baraka I've played has made moderate use of his projectile. Then again I haven't played a good baraka.

    id get rid off barakas spark for...in order of priority
    ex charge has immunity vs projectiles (wouldnt be so crazy since he wouldnt have one for trades anymore),
    f4 to be special cancelable again (minus the chop infin obviously)
    old chop chop back

    before someone he fine the way he is,play baraka for a week,then you'll quickly agree

    I'd trade in arrow just to make Nightwolf's F3 a low.

    Sheeva's fireball hits special mid and is only duckable by lowering your hitbox even further than crouch. Also, EX has armor and is overhead, does like 16% damage, too. She needs her projectile.

    Characters that don't need their projectile: Nightwolf, Raiden, Sonya.
