So I've been playing ninjastorm 3 for quite a while now. I've filled out the story mode on both hero and legendary and played online against max level players just fine, but somehow when playing my friend who has done the same I constantly run into moments that just don't make sense to me. I've decided to try making a list and hope maybe you guys can help me figure out what the dealeo is. It's a rather long list so I may have to update, but I'll try my best to get it all down now.
-When he uses pain I can see the barrier expand and vanish, but when I dash in I get hit from nothing! (at least as far as my eyes can discern)
-when using neji as an assist character he's able to show up in the middle of my combos unhindered. Even when I have one or both of my assist characters set to attack! I can see by the visuals that they connected, but for whatever reason none of them interrupt his barrier setting up.
-With the 4th hokage he's been able to dash not to where my character is, but where he's going to (during a substitute or dash) This may even lead to a double-dash (see below)
-when my friend and I are going at it in a combo-substitute battle we'll often see the characters physically zipping around as they "run" to do the substitute(or dash with the 4th hokage). They may even change directions during this time giving one player an edge by dodging an attack a normal substitute could not
-on the note of substitutes I've witnessed times when my friend's character will substitute twice per one substitute to avoid the attack or substitute to where I am substituting to
-My characters have a habit of sometimes substituting back into the spot where they are substituting from. I don't mean in the general direction either. I mean the EXACT spot. This can get quite annoying, especially when being hit by a strong character's combo.
-characters "phasing" through attacks for no apparent reason. This most often occurs with tilts or combos. Like if I use kisame's tilt that creates waves of water, they'll do nothing to hinder his dash. The same has happened at times when using yagura's combo. The reason I find this weird is because it works 80% of the time but then...
-Being beaten by a character's head or toes when one of us is in the air while the other is on the ground. This will most often happen when he's using lee (adult)
-When my friend is charging chakra or otherwise staying still with an assist character attacking beside him and I send a ranged special of some kind (like a fireball or other large blast) his way the assist character takes the hit instead
-My main problem, more aggravating than all of the others combined though is how assist characters seem to change ai behaviour between us. If he uses a character like danzo's henchmen, kimimaru, etc they will follow me to an outrageous extent. There have been times when he used one of them and I back dashed. He dashed after me and we traded a blows for a few seconds so the character was no longer visible on screen, but we were now on the other side of the ring. Nonetheless he pops out and is still coming after me! Seeing this I'm convinced kimimaru or whatever assist character of the time has some kind of amazing range so I try using them in several later matches, but my character not only doesn't do that but he also goes in a straight line for the most part not bothering to curve nearly as much when chasing after my friend's characters.
Pain its just sort of a glitch in the jutsu were it will sometimes just not even appear just need to understand how long it is so you dont get hit when it doesnt show up
Neji just has invincibility frames which means when he launches his jutsu you cant stop it which kind of sucks cause its pretty much a way to get out of any situation
Minato that is just how his ia chakra dash is so u got to be ready for it when hes awakened because 9 times out of ten he will do that
that one is a different way of dodgeing or so me and my friends call it we don know exactlly how it works but we think its has to do with pressing back and x when near an enemy while you are doing a combo
for the substitutes the double just happens on a move were u will be taking a hit when you reappear and for subing back to were u started thats on you because by pressing different directions when you sub will determine were you will go so if your not pressing anything u wont really move
for the phasing its not really phasing through just some moves still have an animation but dont hit the only way i can think of discribing it would be say the wave is visable for 3 seconds but it will only hit for the first 2 seconds making the last second pretty much useless to get by this you just need to figure out the timing for things like that
it doesnt matter if one is on the ground and one is in the air the attacks will still do damage if they connect
the supports take the hit if say they are in front of the player a little bit so say you launch fireball the one who would first come in to contact with it will be the one to take the hit ether support or player
for the last thing it may be a glitch that happenes every now and then but even if the supports are off screen they will still do all there attacks but for this last one you got me im not to sure sorry
i hope this helped to answer some of your questions
Yeah, that helps. So the creators didn't match the visuals well huh. You'd think that'd be kind of important.
