I'd like the following to be implemented.
We need to stop submission / takedown spammers
1. Make it impossible to land a submission / takedown if the fighter is at 0% energy
2. Take off energy for every submission / takedown attempt, spamming either is completely unrealistic.
Counter & Control is OP, please decrease it's effectiveness
I've had fighters who aren't great on the ground some how transition and improve positions and stop their opponent (who is a better ground fighter) transitioning to a better position / subbing my fighter.
Escapes are overpowered IMO but rather than nerf them I think they need to be under "finish/control" in the heirarchy.
If escapes were like subs where you need more "finish" to try them you'd risk giving up dominant positions & would have to be wiser about trying for them. Considering you have to open up your guard to work submissions & also to try to get back to your feet I'd say logically it makes sense.
That's a way easier fix then nerfing & realizing later it was nerfed too much & then having to strengthen escapes again while searching for a good balance. Let them remain effective, but make it more of a risk/reward
Should not happen unless there's been a minute with no strikes / subs on the ground.
