I’m quite confident in my Goliath skills against all Hunters, just started practicing Wraith. Most times as Kraken I can outrun and take the fight at Stage 2, if not winning then earning a bunch of Strikes. The exception is against a good Abe. Stasis Grenades pull you out of the air, all vertical space is lost and you drop like a brick. Since Kraken has zero mobility options, you’re forced to plod around and wait for Stamina to recharge.
So how do you combat this? Even budgeting your Stamina perfectly, the dash is so short (in addition to needing to get airborne again), coupled with the fact that Stasis can stick to walls & has crazy throwing distance, my Kraken is on permanent lock-down against a skilled Abe player. Halp
