Proof that SSS rank is totally meaningless

#61RunothPosted 2/6/2013 10:30:11 AM
I feel that it is way too easy to get high rankings on Style - have the meter drain more quickly to make you use grapples effectively, and just make it harsher in general.

Completion bonus is pointless, because once you have everything, it's automatically a SSS. This needlessly skews the hell out of the overall ranking.

Item penalties taken after multipliers is dumb as hell.

Still being able to get SSS after hitting the diminishing returns on death penalties is ludicrous.

So yeah, fix all that and it would be much better.

There's still the point system as opposed to the rank system that is supposedly the thing that really matters, but don't just throw away the ranking system in the process.

It's official my faith in game design meter just broke by plummeting into the nonexistent negative zone.

If we're going to Casual Hell I'm gonna make sure it's not a pleasant trip. YOU'LL NEVER TAKE ME ALIVE NT!! *leaps out the window*


I can't believe I live in a world where one can die in less than 5 hits from a boss, fight a Tyrant and Witch at the same time (AKA: Hulk and Forcefield Girl) and see people calling that "casual". That's in SOS mode BTW.


Your point? Doesn't make the game any less casual since dying doesn't seem to have any meaningful effect on your end level rank. The game practically hands you victory on a silver platter if you're losing it's your own damn fault.

LMFAO!! What the hell! That was Donte Must Die and he was just STANDING there. Against VORG-- oh wait, against Vorgil. It's all clear now.

That's the most badass fight scene I've ever witnessed! It's was such a white-knuckle experience.

To be honest, it's better than in DMC4 where you had to break all the extra stuff every time you played a mission to get the orb collection S rank. Only having to do it once is an improvement, although it shouldn't affect the ranking at all.

Vorgil loves his brother, he doesn't want to fight him.

Why can't we all just get along T_T

Lol that Dante gif says it all. yeah, getting SSS rank on a mission is damn easy. I actually used 2 gold orbs in one mission and still got SSS rank. Seriously, that's the problem when you don't take getting damage into account.

Vergil would have carved you like three more asses in half the time Vorgil was wandering around.

"Here, casual! I will stand and get hit so you'll feel strong and edgy!"

People are making a big deal of this games lack or difficult for nothing, if its still fun why should it matter. Dieing 475757 times, losing your shot at a good score, and being forced to replay a whole stage isnt fun.
