A little too much? It's debatable if Rumiko is the most popular character, I see more Helenes, but that might just be me. But I see a bigger problem if Rumiko is nerfed...esp with Nicol's changes. Rumiko is one of the few characters that is considered "range". With those changes, I feel that she will be used as frequently as the other range characters (Phoebe, Andro, and to some extent Anex). This implies that I feel that range characters are underused compared to melee. Honestly I feel people only use the ranged amazons (NOT Rumiko) to be different and unique. I just feel that they lack something IMO. With Rumiko given the "big nerf stick", I predict that the battles will be like 85%+ close range. Comparing range characters, I feel Rumiko hands down beats Phoebe and Andro because of her lower energy costing moves and a much better selection of close range attacks. But since the game needs far range characters, I think Rumiko only needs a small nerf and the other ranged characters a buff. What I do suggest is IMO: Rumiko's shuriken barrage from 12x4 to 5x10 or 7x7. I think thats enough nerf to Rumiko, yet doesn't make the move useless. Phoebe - someone tell me why power lash isn't 50 energy but 55? It makes this move almost impossible to use, considering that games are close range most of the time. It would drastically make her better, gives people a reason to think twice about switching characters. Anex and Andro are being patched...so, we'll see.
