The problem most people have with Kraken is that no one shoots the banshee missiles. Kraken is one of the easiest monsters to deal with ability wise.
If the banshee missiles are taken out than his ability to do damage is significantly muffled, aftershock is crap for most of its life either being op or up, but up for the most part.
All kraken has left is Lightning Strike and vortex that he can reliably use, but LS is pretty easy to dodge if you use Jetfuel only to dodge LS and maybe AS.
Abilities that can be outright denied by the hunters were always a problem for certain monsters e.g. Miley with her Mimic and her Spider Trap, Wraith and her Phantom/Decoy. If the hunters can outright deny these abilities than the monsters suffers in terms of damage output.
I hope in the future whatever studio is contracted to work on the title, they don’t have abilities that can be outright denied the way the mentioned abilities can be. It just causes headaches to balance, because teams that know to handle these abilities essentially gods and those who don’t know how to deal with them get stomped extra hard.
