Hi.

im new here Smile

im curently playing on mentor.. and it is really hard..
i have looked around on the web and people say that NG2 is a game thats based on both skill and a good portion of luck.. also that its no idea that u try to be good at it since its luck based... im just curious is this true?
or do u really get better and are able to finsh stages without a hole bunch of luck?

Well, I don't actually believe in the idea of "luck" but there is a bit of chance involved, mostly skill though.

Ummmm I guess it skill unless when you have to tackle I.S. Ninjas, then its pretty much luck and staying on your toes, The I.S ninjas are easy on Normal difficulty but on MN, they just do crazy damage.The dash in this game is bad, you get tagged with I.S during dashes, which is wrong. you get stuck with so much I.S you cant tell the timing to dodge.. So far thats my only probs with the game.

"Mostly" skill, but Master Ninja Mode does contain a lot of luck in certain parts for sure, IMO.

Well, luck is needed of course but if you haven't enough skill, you would waste your luck. So skill is needed whatever you wanna do in NG.

It's like a joke from the late great Mitch Hedberg.

It's luck while you start to play the game, and skill once you know the mechanics and have thought up strategies.

Same with every other game with an AI.

E.g. say your in the second fight with Genshin. If you don't think about killing all his minions, then whether you get tagged or not by incendiaries is luck (cause of dodge by attack movement and just dodging Genshin). However, if you then go into the KILL ALL MINIONS BEFORE GENSHIN mindset, then it's no longer luck based as your relying on your incendiary ninja disposal skillset, then Genshin killing skillset.

im not one thatís in to the hole luck thing but i think u will find that if u can u know how to use your environment to your advantage like a wall or running way and getting the enemy in to a bottle neck or the fact that the UT for the kusari gama will go off even if others no enemy near by and a number of other things your luck seems to increase

Think Itagaki was responsible for the Ninja's spamming the incendiary Kunai, so when Sigma comes out I hope they tone down, or take them out completely.

Yes he was, though maybe not only him. Basically the people who assess the look of the game. I recall reading in an interview that there weren't enough projectiles on the screen, so thus the spam and abundance of Arrows/shurikens/incendiaries/fireballs

Beating hordes of IS Ninja's = Luck.

Everything else = Skill.

Unfortunatley MNM is 70% IS Ninjas.

Though I believe its skill, the IS ninjas are luck. There have been many times where I've played several situations the exact same way with the exact characters and got different results. And the water demons hit WAY to hard on master ninja.

However it wouldn't be master ninja if it didn't through some "cheap" stuff in there. Team Ninja did their research, the ninja is always the underdog.
