- I made this thread to discuss about the cheap characters in the game like Deathstroke.

- In the game it's pretty easy to spam high,medium,low guns with Deathstroke. And when people get close you can be sliced easily by the nearly unblockable sword.

The most annoying part about the game is you can't jump behind Deathstroke without potentially being hit by his "Ultimate move" by his sword. From behind.(You press (LT + RT) to activate if your gauge is full.

The point is I feel like Deathstroke was an easy, simple character developed in this game, who has a great advantage with his rapid fire power over 70% of the roster. Pretty much you have to be great with another character to beat the average Deathstroke user. I mean all I know is half his moves and I can destroy people online, and troll against CPU's on "Very Hard". :]

What do you guys think?

I'm to good to let character types faze me

Batgirl is worse.

He's not that difficult to beat.

Batgirl has surpassed Deathstroke in the cheap category. It's ridiculous.

Deathstroke spammers aren't that good. I've played some good Deathstroke players, and they combine the guns with legit combat.

Raven and Green Lantern are somewhat cheap due to their ranged grabs / meter burn.

Also, Deathstroke's super has a somewhat big hit box, but it's really easy to block due to its relatively long pause. Superman's and Hawkgirl's supers are harder to block.

@jedixman: For Superman, you can only block it. You can't jump him but you can spam him with Deathstroke.

IDk, I just think maybe something about Deathstroke should be nerfed later on, like his durability.

He already got nerfed.

Just keep practicing, seriously. Coming from Gamefaqs, the amount of crying about Deathstroke on there was already horrendus. I mean no disrespect, but I feel like people should take time practicing rather than begging for nerfs.

I mean, I main Lobo. He has horrid match ups. I still find ways to up my game. Just takes practice.

Raven and GL, grab grab grab grab then..... grab.

#10 Edited by martyyy15 (1223 posts) - - Show Bio

I main GL can't do some of longer combos. Can't seem to get the timing for the trait to connect it to combo lol. Anyway yeah people online are jerks with deathstroke, they have no integrity or sense of sportsmanship. I mean let the guy get up so its fair. And it can take away the fun of a match when the guy is just shooting being a tool lol

People spam so hard with Aquaman.

@sideburnguru: Yea, Lobo is definitely a "patience character," however he is deadly when played right. He's my backup character, my main is Joker of course.

Deathstroke spammers are easy - all you gotta do is block his shots then dash forward, then block, then dash, repeat. I agree, there is no need for any more nerfs. Do you play on PS3?

I've jumped over Superman once or twice. It takes timing, though.

Durability should NOT be nerfed. It's fine as is. Plus, he got a nerf. Deathstroke is mostly played by noobs; I smile when I see somebody play as him, and then I own them as Superman, Nightwing, Captain Marvel, Green Arrow... well, essentially any of my mains.

Though Batgirl = perfect for Deathstroke spammers. Down=down X = hell for Deathstroke spammers or any other range spammers.

Aquaman is OP. Extremely long range melee attacks, two range attacks (high and low damage), and super strength for objects.

I want to get better as GL. I've gotten some nice combos, though.

I prefer Sinestro, however.

@jedixman:

Oh God Sinestro players just spam that rock drop mostly. But some actually play lol. I love green lantern he is my favorite super hero and I like his play style. I don't just spam that grab ( which can be blocked easily)

What makes me laugh is that people think the rock is unblockable.

My mains are:

  1. Shazam (default) - I get so much hate mail when I play as Shazam.
  2. Superman (Red Son or Godfall)
  3. Nightwing (Regime or New 52)
  4. Flash (default)
  5. Doomsday (either, but usually default)
  6. Aquaman (Flashpoint)
  7. Green Arrow (Insurgency)

Wonder Woman (Red Son or Regime) is my "fun" character. I'm only decent. I play as her if I don't care as much about winning.

I want to get better as Batman, though. Sounds mean, but if I'm playing against a player who isn't that good, I'll take that time to practice my Batman skills.

@jedixman:

I really only use green lantern. Shazam is good, I don't know why you'd get hate mail, he is very fair. Its not that the rock isn't unblockable its when you block it they just do those projectiles at you then spam rock to the point you can't even get up. Its no fun that way. Same as when people play scorpion and JUST teleport. THat sucks lol

It's because of how I play. I don't spam projectiles, but I still don't let people get back up. It's my playstyle: staying on the offensive, preventing them from thinking or retaliating. That's how I play with most of my characters, but I am particularly brutal as Shazam, Nightwing, and Flash. I'm becoming brutal as Batman and Doomsday (Doomsday is also good against range characters).

I rarely even touch the teleport ability, unless I'm using it to dodge range attacks (works well on Superman. Deathstroke... varied results). His air hit box is insane, though.

I don't find Deathstroke flawed, just a lot of ppl spam with him. That doesn't make the game bad!

I wish I could use Deathstroke without people leaving the match before it even starts, so I have a lot of wasted skins because of that, like Flashpoint, Teen Titans, and now Red Son.

But NRS really needs to spread out the skins, I'd try out different characters, but they need some new skins.

Sinestro needs a white skin!

A white Sinestro skin would be great. And I agree, the other characters need more skins.
