just wondering if someone could do a breakdown of skill levels, like, say things that a newb would do would be, to be able to see how good you are based on others opinions

NINJA DOG/NEWBIE
- Never Counter Attack
- Doesn't care about beating challenges
- Will Run from all encounters possible
- Uses Healing Items where there is barley any need
- Uses Ninpo Frequently
if you have at least 3 of the above tendencies, you are a ninja dog/newbie at Ninja Gaiden/Ninja Gaiden Black.
etc... this is just an example, someone else can post everything else

Good player
-Knows when and when not to use counter attacks. (this is as deep as specific moves).
-Is skilled with most/all weapons (especially the UF), but knows which weapon is best for any situation.
-Regualarly gets time bonuses or gets high combos.
-Doesn't take much damage in normal battles, but if so uses blue essence for health restoration.
-Uses ninpo strategicly. (It's not a crutch if you know when/how to use it)

Greater Ninja

- Begining to make transition from lesser/intermidiate player
- Uses Counter Attacks more effectivley
- doesn't rely on healing items, unless near death, with no rebirths
- Is more cautious on higher difficulties
- Has little or no trouble in early stages of game on ND, Normal and Hard

if you have at least 3 of these, you are a greater ninja, but technically, since I don't sync up with the good player requirements, I can't be a greater ninja, wierd huh? we really need to standardize so that things like this can't happen, lol, I'm a greater ninja, but not a good player, lmao

I disagree, if have those bolded ones you're more of a stupid ninja than a master ninja.

i.e. Stupid Ninja
-Never uses ninpo cause he/she thinks it's a crutch
-Farms essence to have the UF as early as possible. Even though they don't need it.
-Does the great bridge challenge even though it causes you to lose all your elixirs, making you farm essence while you could be at the top of the core.
-Does the great bridge challenge before chapter 15.
-Restarts every time they use a talisman, even though they'll pick up like 5 throughout the course of the game.
-Uses the Nunchucku for every mission. (I know why you do it, it still seems pointless)

I know I probably offended some of the better players, but man some people take those karma scores a little too seriously.

Nobody said that a skilled ninja can't be stupid. Also, since you responded so fast I'm not sure if you read the one I edited in. The second last one, that has got to be the best example of a stupid ninja.

I can do the GBC on all difficulties except MN with hardly a scratch. What's your point? Razz

In casual play, however, I basically continue on when I use a Talisman, spam ninpo, etc. When I'm karma-running, it's lockdown in the manner you describe.

I restart everytime I use a TOR and think I shouldnt havem and it was a loss becuz of something wrong I did. If a boss keeps spamming attacks I will restart, cuz they usually have different modes than "Spam" (For DD, I am not sure...

Oh, yeah, sometimes it is called for. Like, I'll restart if I lose a talisman if I barely even scratch the boss (usuallly only happens with the 5% UF), or if I'm really close to a save point. But there are people who do it excessively, like almost every time.

For instance, would you restart if you just made it through the core without losing as many items as you normally would, but then get eaten by the ghostfish at the top? Or better yet, say you make it through the first two bosses without an elixir, but then Goghon is the one who goes into "Spam mode", would you still use a talisman?

To me, that's kinda what qualifies as a 'stupid ninja'.
