That’s exactly why Baz’s kickfactor got changed: it was a crutch.
Even with that Kickfactor, he still lost to a lot of characters. It’s not like it isn’t still a free kill on a lot of characters, it’s just now a lot less threatening.
I dunno, maybe you shouldn’t lose your entire bar when you kill with Kickfactor, maybe it should just halve your current bar or something. Baz is too dependent on meter to have a mechanic where you’re rewarded then heavily punished for doing what you’re supposed to be doing as the Baz.
