I can understand why they make it so difficult to escape with the moving meter, I actually enjoy this.
However, I think it is ridiculous how amazingly lightning fast any of the CPUs manage to escape. Or better yet, how easily they can take you from the top even when your half way over, and yet when attempting to do the same to them it is an eternal struggle yet again.
I'm with you on that I was in a Cage match last night it was Jeff vs. CM Punk and every time I try to get out Punk seem to be one step head of me and when I tried to get him down from the cage it seem like it took forever don't even bother trying the tag team cage match unless you have a friend play with you.
Did you ever play DoR2 story mode? Four-way cage match, escape only (over the top) and due to glitchy AI the CPUs seem to focus on you and barely fight each other. Sucks hardcore (and it's mandatory). And I'm not positive but I think there's a time limit. Now THAT was garbage. Triple-threat cage matches are hard enough, four-ways are damn near impossible. I don't really have any problem with 1v1 cages in this game because a couple sigs/finishers and your opp is down long enough for you to climb out.
