He said 'godlike reflexes'. Meaning dodging was tied to his reactions and movement, not to Kratos calculating the trajectory of Zeus' attacks every single time and then moving out of the way faster than Zeus' arm swing, who by the way had stupid-high levels of accuracy, and threw his bolts in pairs against Kratos in their battles.
Godlike reflexes would put him on the same tier as Artemis, the dudette who fired thousands of Lightning+ arrows at her enemies a few meters away whilst avoiding her own animals.
So sorry, aim-dodging and telegraphing is a little harder to accept for that particular incident. Especially when the player is the one who would deal with the attacks via telegraphing/aim-dodging, not the character themselves.
Same reason no one should accept calcs? What did the dev say about Dante's appearance in SMT?
Well, humans created SMT and this isn't a chicken or the egg type of moment.
Just because Kratos is a Lightning timer it doesn't mean he'll dodge every single thing that's under Lightning level speed. He's been tagged several times by beings slower than the Olympians.
"To all visitors from Transylvania looking for the head of Voivode Dracula: Yes, we have it. Yes, he's dead. No, you cannot see it. No, he will not return and invade you again. It has been over thirty years, please stop pestering us."
And he would need impressive reactions to do those two things against Zeus, just how an irl human is capable of bullet-timing within 10ft with these two but would fail 9/10 times. Zeus doesn't hold out his palm and shoot sparks, he pitches them. That alone is notable. Also I take it from no one standing by it that the QTE doesn't give the fruits? >.> (Lightning bows and Ma3,000 lightning.. I take it you guys are taking the novel as canon then?)
Calcs work out specific things and if their quantifiable. An off-shot comment about gameplay does not. Approving that he's a hunter in SMT like Atlus suggested.
Yes, because mere humans could create a god like that. Psh, whats wrong with you son?
Maybe if he was actually shown to do so or he didn't only have a single sonic+ speed feat before this. He should be an argument for facing Zeus even before the dev, that's a fact. Though I'm afraid that would open the doors for many undeserving to get such a boost. Btw going to check out the Castor/Rock jumping, see if its actually in the supersonic range, so feel free to throw some edits to it if needs be~
"Gonna need more chloroform..."
"If you look down on us, judge us, condemn us... then you shall fear us!"
First a word on the time stop itself. Its shown in the battle that if caught in the AoE the Castor creates that Kratos moves slower. It usually takes him 7/30 frames to reach the apex of his jump, taking 35/30 frames when under its affects
= Castor's slowing down time by 1/5.286 its normal speed.
Q: Is Kratos resisting this level of time-slow or are his reactions just 5.3x faster than Castor's speed? Dev saying Kratos is in fact affected would point to the latter, meaning this could be a hypersonic feat if Castor himself is Mach 1.
Also questionable is the rocks stopping once he passes the green mist, with his last jump showing gravity still making him arc as if it was his normal speed.. not sure if its under affect or not. Probably not, but making a note of it anyhow, speed feat is obviously with the rocks not being under time-slow.
(please log in to view the image)
The image shows the rocks were falling at 12.84m/s, second image shows it falling at 0.583636364m/s
(Further supported for the latter speed is the third rock clearly rotating 180° when we see it. And that would hit 1m/s)
Normal 12.84 / Slow 0.583636364 = 22 on the dot
Kratos' jump covers at most his shin length in 1 frame, or 1/4 of his height.
= (0.61m / (1 / 30)s) * 22
= 18.3m/s * 22
= 402.6m/s / Mach 1.183 grapplejump speed
It takes Kratos 15/30 frames to reach each rock and as shown Kratos is moving 0.61m per frame
= The rocks are 9.15m away
He thows his chains to them in 5/30 frames
= (9.15m / (5 / 30)s) * 22
= 54.9m/s * 22
= 1,207.8m/s / Mach 3.549 attack speed
Honestly I feel at least the movement speed is slower than I'd thought, first thought seeing it was 'Mach 3', so notes are welcome.
