I’m not usually one to rage, but i HATE when people ask for Thunder to get more ranged options. THE WHOLE POINT OF THUNDER IS THAT HE TRIES TO GET IN! Once he is in, its a NIGHTMARE for every character. Thunder has anti-projectile tools, anti-air tools, grab tools, low-crush tools, Back-dash chasing tools, armor moves, EVERYTHING HE COULD POSSIBLY WANT up close. PLUS THE MOST DAMAGE IN THE ENTIRE GAME! If you cant get in on someone, than they are doing their job right.
Think about this:
You are saying "My close range character needs to be able to get in more."
If you FLIPPED that statement and applied it to non-Thunder players, you would hear:
“My ranged character needs better escape tools”. Imagine if Omen, Glacius, or Kan-Ra got teleports they could use at any time. YOU WOULDN’T LIKE THAT WOULD YOU?
