I have noticed with some characters it's best just not to awaken cause I've awakened, lost the ability to call out support and to do ultimate jutsu and got my ass handed to me cause of it.
After playing a while I just noticed that you have to utilize the projectiles, which does balance things the balancing act in this game is amazing which leaves me dumbfounded the amount of Naruto, Sasuke and Minato users there are.
Which platform do you have the game on?
