Thanks for the replies, but since the change to the plasma railgun vs sword block, Ronin is the biggest problem and more than just for Northstar.
Ronin's sword block is not balanced. I'm sorry but it will ruin this game. It's a simple process. Block, arc wave, block, unload shotgun, block, phase, block, reload, unload shotgun, block, arc wave, execution. Not fun to play against.
