I was wondering what everyone thought about the difficulty ratings each character has been given on the tutorial videos? The rankings are as follows:
1 / 3 Stars (easy)
2 / 3 Stars (medium)
3 / 3 Stars (hard)
Personally, I’d move Geiger into 1 star as once you get your head around the gear meter he seems pretty straight forward, and his projectile/reversal gameplay feels like a good place for beginners.
I’d also move Valerie into the 2 or 3 stars bracket because her low health and rushdown play means you have to make the most of opportunities for damage, which is something beginners may struggle to do.
I think I’d also put Grave in the 2 star bracket. I know he’s supposed to be the archetypal fighting game character, but I find all the different options for his fireball (slow, medium, fast, large) plus the effects of wind summon make him more complex than the other zoners.
I’m coming from a non-fighting game background, so I’d be interested to hear what you all think.
