Even kasual matches aren't fun anymore.
07/09/2019 02:22 AM EST

Or is it just my luck this morning? You know when you find someone online and have like 20 sets back to back against them, good, fun games, good connection? Where are those people? First it takes ages to find a guy with good connection and when you do they don't accept. If they accept they have 1 match and leave. Or they are one of those who do fatality every single game.

I played 6 matches this morning against 6 different opponents. I lost them all of course. 2 of them quit after 1 game, the other 4 did a fatality after 1 game so I left. I got to mention that I play on wired, conneciton was good and I was playing Raiden. That's right. RAIDEN! Not only he is one of the worst characters in the game, I suck with him too. I'm 0-11 with him yet people still leave or have the impression that I deserve a fatality after 1 game. Is it Raiden? Do people hate Raiden or something? Because I don't face as many opponents like that back to back when I play other characters. I just don't get it.

All I know is Storm Cell can get bent. Three hits, barely any gap, HUGE pushback on block and zero chance to retaliate.

I don't do fatalities much, but fuck Raiden for that one move.

Raiden is far, far from the worst character in the game. You just have to know how to properly use his specific moves. He’s not combo-heavy, but you can still do a ton of damage with him. For example, amplifying storm cell leaves you with various options for juggle.

If you’re on the Xbox One, I’d be down for some matches.

Well, Raiden being bad wasn't even my point but all right, we can talk about that too. I think he definitely is much closer to the lowest tier than he is to the top. Yes his damage is good but it's not easy to get it. What exactly do you do in neutral? Spam F3 which is not hit confirmable? Spam B12 which is unsafe? Ending strings with storm cell which is safe but ends with a high so if they know that makes it very unsafe? Both his low and overhead are so slow that are even reactable.

I really can't see why some people think Raiden is good. And pretty much every tier list I've seen, he is near the bottom. I mean, I don't believe in tier lists I see online but if I had to make one myself, Raiden would be very low imho.

Oh, word? I didn't know Storm Cell was a high and could be low profiled.

@AgentK Macklin Boi on XBONE. I have a lot to learn here.

I wasn't trying to make this about Raiden, just letting it be known what moves I currently can't stand. I'm having difficulty with Reborn Scorpion as well.
