Post-nerf Ruuca

Postby ohaijohnny » Wed Apr 04, 2012 11:55 pm

So, since I started playing again after errata, I haven't seen any files with Ruuca in them, but I see pre-nerf threads whining about OP Ruuca.
What i'm wondering is, she still seems pretty feasible as a mini-Shin nuker, so why is she not used AT ALL in Folrart now? Is she THAT bad?
What outshines her, or is there just no file that suits her anymore?
Discuss please!

I'm guessing most of those that uses her before just want an easy win, and since she can't give that anymore they are trying to find something else.

I fought a file which contained her FSR and stuff from the pre take to the sky.It was a fair game.

People just can't imagine a Ruuca that doesn't auto-win them games anymore. It's unfathomable, too shameful. So they keep her locked up nice and tight in the big black box. Those perverts.

In other words, she's still good?
Good.
It's just so weird I haven't seen her played ONCE since I started playing again... Makes me want to use her myself, if I can ever get a set.

Well, now that her God-tier status has been revoked...the usual suspects (spike grinders) don't have a reason to use her anymore. In other words, because she's not broken, she doesn't get widely used anymore. It's that simple. There are some gamers that will play the best thing available to them and that's all they will play. Ruuca used to be that. Now she's not. Unsurprisingly, those people stopped using her.

It's my skinner's box, and it's purely for research...

So what tier would y'all say she's in now?
I'm kind of a Spike/Timmy myself, and those big nasty action/start skill combos appeal to me. But at the same time, I wanna win.
Would you say she's still 2000+ tier? 1800-2000? Or worse?

Rom,

That was the best analysis I have seen in a long time. It echoes alot of sentiments I have about the game. Winning take all mentality regarding events, files, etc. etc. Participation should be the number 1 supported notion by management not winning. That is why balance is such a critical point.
However, time and time again we get time consuming grinding events whereby your "success" is judged in terms of wins (see collecting) rather than participating. These are aimed directly at free players for certain and i applaud efforts to allow them opportunities to get cards but not winner take all attitude. Selling Bringer 5 star card to make your file more powerful was another blatant example.
People using "broken" cards to get easy wins ( for what manner of enjoyment I can only guess) earn nothing but utter disdain and lack of respect from me.

I like Rucca better now than before and she is not on UD list so she is still in use.
