I’ll go straight to the point.
IMO, Kraken damage output is fine for me… maybe~. Some how I manage to avoid Vortex - BM - LS combo (only 3/10 times that I can dodge it XD) and I believe TRS will fix BM to work as ‘mine’ not ‘missile’ on TU9.0
IMO, Kraken’s problem is his traversal. He can avoid most of the assault’s primary gun damage (except Markov) while deals tons of damage at the same time. w/o Abe or Crow, I rarely saw Kraken feet hit the ground except he gonna use Aftershock.
So here is my suggestion to Kraken traversal and still keep concept ‘King of the sky’ like TRS want him to be.
Make Kraken traversal is energy bar like Bob, while he flying his stamina wont regen but Kraken not gradually falling to the gruond too.
-Energy max is 100
-use 10 energy to start flying
-(edit) consume 20-25 energy to dash in mid-air
-(edit) has 3 seconds cooldown for dash in mid-air
-consume 2 energy per second
-has 1.5-2 seconds delay b4 his energy recharge after he touch the ground
-regen 10 energy per second when he’s on the ground
-need at-least 30-50 energy to fly again
-slow wont make Kraken fall faster, just slow his fly speed
-most important thing is Kraken will gradually fall when he recieve damage
IMO, Kraken still be king of the sky, but hunters can punish him while he recharging his energy on the ground
Max duration for Kraken to glide around the dome is 45 seconds, so it’s hunter job to make him waste his energy by dashing to avoid damge like Torvald’s mortar and both Hank orbital or play the damage race to force Kraken touch the ground.
Kraken will try using combo to burst someone down but if hunter can dodge it, Kraken must wait for another 9 sec to use his combo again or choose to use Aftershock and waste 10 more energy to fly again. And I think Kraken isnt that too vulnerable while he’s on the ground cuz he can use Vortex to push assault back or place BM to protect himself.
But Im not sure if this suggestion is real then Aftershock will still be viable?
And Jack gonna be Kraken hard counter or not?
So pls share you thought about this suggestion =)
