It's 8 am, I haven't slept all night, and I'm lying in bed browsing the uncut section. Why am I like this?
@Jolee Bindo, because life is one terrifying experience after another and this is one way to distract ourselves from inevitable depression. That and sleep is for the weak
@Jolee Bindo, Same, but it's only 6:30AM here
Shinobi is more cancerous than centurion. Just saying.
@Kierkegaard, maybe if you fight him on a bridge but with out drops he isn't so bad
@Medal Delivery Boy, Shinobi has a long range dodge attack that is a 50/50 and both choices give a free heavy plus more if you count combos afterwards. Shinobi has a faster run and can easily escape an engagement or catch you if you try to flee. Shinobi has a slide attack that is damn near impossible to dodge unless you are an assassin which has a double light guarantee after it. Only real counter to a shinobi right now is guard breaks but since he engages enemies at such a long range it is not very reliable. As for centurion, absolutely all of his attacks are reactionable. His only real damage comes from his charged heavy into punch into leap attack. But the only way to start that chain is with a charged heavy, which is pretty damn easy to counter. Just wait until its near the end to ensure it isnt a GB feint and then parry. This is all coming from a guy that does not have either of the dlc heroes.
@Kierkegaard, all I ask is for ubi to look into the shinobi 50/50 and then I'll be satisfied.
@Kierkegaard, long range attacks are easily dodged and his slide kick can be easily punished if you dodge, I use shinobi and my ranged attacks rarely hit, his super sprint drains so much stamina that even if he catches you he'll run out of stamina fast
@Medal Delivery Boy, His ranged attacks are incredible at 2v1s (especially the GB), but I was referring more to his long range dodges into unblockable kicks or his backflips into GB or heavy. All of those attacks are lightning fast. And I have never successfully dodged his slide, regardless of my timing for it. Might be because I play LB and his small dodge range is physically incapable of dodging it. And you shouldn't super sprint until out if stamina, just until, just long enough that you have a big lead on your opponent, then back to normal sprint.
@Kierkegaard, I'm talking 1v1, maybe if you use him you'll understand what he's gonna do, that's probably why I don't have any issues fighting him
@Medal Delivery Boy, Perhaps. All I know is that it only took me a couple days since early release to figure out how to fight centurion, but I have yet to find a reliable tactic for fighting Shinobi. I'll be interested to see what the changes to cent and shino are that the devs mentioned in the last stream.
@Kierkegaard, I found giving some distance between the cent and me is the best way so I can counter a bit easier. Otherwise I get caught in their combo rotation and it ends quickly. Shinobi only give me trouble when two pair up.
I think centurion is very one-sided. If you get that wombo-combo, you win. But if you don't, you have very little health or range.
But I only have prestige for every Viking class and centurion so I can't speak for the intricacies of every class.
Should of put the game itself instead
Love for honor.
Hate it's peer to peer connection.
Everyone has a counter, find them or quit.
