He’s a grappler… were you expecting him to have flashy linkers and ADs??? lol
So what if he borrows a few normals from other chars? Every other Fighter on the planet does the same thing.
Its ok to say you don’t like the char. But to say that a char is missing things because of your unreasonable expectations is a little childish. I repeat, HE’S A GRAPPLER!! Stop trying to play him like Jago or Wulf.
I think its more of the fact that alot of his fluidity that most KI characters have just isn’t as present with RAAM. it’s not the fact that he has few linkers and borrowed normals (even though that fact may be more present with this character). Most people I think are fine with that. It’s just there are definitely alot of rough spots with the character. Especially with some of his animations. To give an example of the fluidity I was talking about, try comparing his intro and win animations to that of say shadow jago. While shago’s looks really smooth and well done, the animation and camera work on that of RAAM’s is far worse quality. His movement in these moments are not animated quite as well, especially the face. It feels very off and the way his face moves when he speaks or blinks looks awkward. That along with the camera during those animations just feels a bit rushed, which is understandable as they wanted to have him ready by e3 and do the whole “play him right now” thing. These small aesthetic pieces can be seen throughout many parts of his character and although it may not effect the character that much in gameplay it makes him feel unfinished or rushed, which is what I think most people are talking about when they say he is unfinished. Also there are a few bugs, but that’s normal for a new character.
Actually - I totally hate how much fun I’m having with him, because I wasn’t really stoked on him being in the game (on the basis of too many guests) but after last night I’m definitely eating my words. This dude is really, really fun. And giving me a pocket crisis.
You asked why we think he’s unfinished. And then people bash when we answer. And, I still think he’s unfinished. We’ve mentioned his poor animations and we’ve been called “childish” for it. Bizarre. So, this post is pretty unproductive.

Don’t get the “hes too stiff” complaint. He’s stiff because he was stiff in Gears. All he did in that game was lumber around slowly. Heck his charging grab shows way more mobility than anything he did in Gears.
