View Full Version : Orochi's Riptide Strike

03-19-2017, 07:46 AM
I'm curious as to why Orochi's Riptide strike can't be cancelled out like his/her Storm Rush. Is there a specific reason as to why you can't. Is it because it would be too good or just not fair?

Because it's poorly designed : no iframes, same dmg as regular heavy, high risk low reward (GG Ubi)
It does the same thing as SR but worse.

There are no reasons to use it at the moment

Isn't riptide strike a counter to dodge attacks?

why use riptide when you can parry more easily, more safely and in most cases can do more dmg ?

RIPTIDE STRIKE is supposed to be a cool counterattack when you are going to be attacked from the top, but its a super risky move that gives no reward, Its what we talked in this thread, you should use the search tool so you can see that type of things: http://forums.ubi.com/showthread.php/1603616-Ubisoft-gt-How-to-fix-the-samurai-Orochi

RIPTIDE STRIKE needs to be unblockable with higher damage, and it would be worth something, because right now is somekind of cool ornament for the orochi playstyle that NOBODY uses. Its stupid that they added that like that.. It MUST change as well as many other aspects from the orochi that are enumerated in that thread.
