Hello, the game I'm working on is very similar to smash, where some attacks are designated to launch a player based on the attacks power + the targets health. The higher health they have, the farther it sends them and the longer it takes to recover etc. I'm having trouble on how to balance different types of attacks and I would love to see other people's input on how to balance them. Spammable Ranged Attacks - I'm assuming these should never launch/stun and just do damage At the moment, my animations are very fast so everything seems "spammable". For example, for attacks like a "dashing punch attack" where it sends the character flying in a straight line and attacks whatever is in its path, these are my following options to balance it. -Longer wind up frames, so it can't be spammable, but punishing if hit. -Only stuns until a certain health threshold of the target, then it launches. (Ex: If health > 80, launch instead of stun) So, I would like some opinions on how the launch behavior should work for these type of attacks. Assume by default, that the animations are fast, with very little windup. Spammable Projectile Attacks Long Cast Time Projectile Attack Dashing Attacks Aerial Normal Attack (In this game, its just 1 animation like a kick in mid-air, should this launch? In smash it does.) Crouch Normal Attack (I think in Smash it launches?) Medium Range (Not melee range) (Ex: A character shoots lightning out of hands, chain lightning from hand + length not a projectile. Easily spammable, input is like: Directional + SpecialAttack Key.) -Should I balance these medium range attacks by making them have a longer windup animation assuming it will always launch the target OR only allow them to launch if the targets health is > threshold. Thanks you in advance if you guys decide to leave your opinions here.
