Raiden is not overpowered. Just good.

Oh yeah I used to have problems with Raiden, but now that I've learned how to deal with him it's fine. I just need to learn how to get around that counter when my friend plays him (spams the hell out of it)


Grab

Raiden has 1 decent aerial approach and that's his triangle dive kick,

Wrong.

And his AP gain is some of the best in the game. He can hit confirm several ways into 140+ combos. This includes his forward throw. That's right. He can get 140AP just from a throw + the orbs.

His side grab crumples you. Because of this, he can combo into his level 1 super through a grab. A GRAB. And its not easy to avoid grabs either since its over powered in this game.

It also doesn't help that the command to make you fall through a platform during his grab (hold down when he grabs you) doesn't work too well online. Either that, or I suck at timing it.

The most you can do is play keep away against a good Raiden player.. which is hard because he's too damn fast. -_-

The command is simply to hold down I believe. You can keep holding down so I don't imagine it takes much timing.

That's a lie. He CANNOT combo into his level 1 from that grab. Stop spreading BS.

If you hold down before he grabs you, it won't work. And there have been plenty of times where I held down after he grabbed me on a platform and it still didn't trigger.

Maybe lag is a factor?
