So Sly is still pretty much the most OP character in the game, right?

Just checking in to see if that's been a generally accepted fact, yet. If not, I'll check in later.

Yeah they needed to think those rivals out better. Drake is just at a disadvantage all around. It was not fun beating Sly with Drake (well yeah it was but getting to the point where that happened was not)

No. He just has the best Supers. The dude can't block or dodge. This makes many resets impossible against other characters, possible against Sly. For example, knocking Sly down then waiting for him to get up and doing a level 1 with Raiden is a guaranteed K.O on him since he can't dodge. Also, Parapa's yoyo into his level 1, which you can dodge with any other character, you can't dodge with Sly. Kratos >+square is easily blockable, but Sly can't block it so he's fodder to that move. It's really hard to build AP with him because he's going to take more abuse than dish out unless it's 2v2 and you have an amazing partner (or unless of course you're playing against a bunch of crap players).

That said, again, he has the best supers. His Level 1 is so fast and can get 3 kills easy (better than Kratos' since it doesn't put him in danger when using it). His level 2, while not as good as Parapa's, can still easily get 4 kills. His level 3 is a guaranteed 6 kills pretty much in many circumstances.

He's high tier for his supers, but probably not top from what I can gather. Doesn't help that he gets absolutely bodied by Parapa and Kratos at an equal skill level.

Also, Drake has plenty of things to contend with Sly. Stop using the Magnum. That's his only move that whiffs on him. Use the AK47. It builds more AP anyway and is more versatile. Also, use the barrel.

Play the Big Daddy/Sackboy matchup then come tell me the rivals don't make sense.

Is there a way to combo the explosion with the barrel?

Maybe something like air barrel--ak run?

It would be very situational and would depend on distance. It certainly can't be done from point blank, since the barrel takes too long to explode. I've done a barrel kick from long range, connected, then connected with a magnum shot as the barrel was exploding, both hitting him. But it was very lucky and situational.
