Would being able to manually explode the projectile be a good buff?
No that would be cheap. There is no need for a drastic change to a move like that because someone else wants it to be like that. it's fine the way it is. All supers will have their downfalls like Slys level 2 not going through platforms and FP chicken not being able to double jump.
Except Spike has been nerfed enough
It's not asking too much to make one of his supers less terrible.
And this conversation is over. Indenial or lying to yourself conversations I just stop right at. So go ahead, because I wont reply.
