Bane's trait is nothing more than a crutch, for both Bane players and NRS. I have never played a Bane that did anything other than activate trait lvl1, spam super armor moves, activate lv2 before lvl1 runs out, continue spamming super armor moves, activate lvl3 before lvl2 runs out, increase frequency of super armor move spam, jump backwards constantly until trait recharges, repeat ad nauseam.
This is one of the reasons I feel Bane is one of the two wasted characters slots in the game.
But isn't Deathstroke's or Superman's zoning capabilities the same thing? It seems to me a lot of people use their zoning abilities as a crutch also. I think it's just the style they are supposed to be played with. The thing is at the very least Bane's Venom runs out but Deathstroke's or Superman's zoning doesn't.
The constant spamming of the armor moves is just a matter of the Bane player not understanding how to use Venom to the fullest potential. It's the same thing as a Deathstroke constantly using guns or Superman using his eye beams or Scorpion constantly spamming the teleport- These are just cases of the player not knowing how to play the game. I've encountered many players who just spam with the characters they use but I've also encountered players who are awesome with the above characters without using spam, Bane included.
I am a "beginner" and I chose the only people I can get good combos with, Lex Luthor and The Flash. However, when I'm playing against a spamming superman and deathstroke I pick whichever one they picked and we have a spam-off, it gets pretty intense. Btw don't use cheap characters like raven, Solomon Grundy and his chains, or any dlc characters that are impossible to beat
On day 1 I started out with Black Adam and Ares because of their looks mainly but they ended up being quite good. Then I switched to Lex for his shock mine set ups. Then I switched to Zod and started getting atleast 3 angry messages a day because of his trait and never looked back :p.
Damn,i think because of Zod's trait i gonna main him as well Oo.
