A message relating to characters in general, especially characters considered OP

How good a character is and the relationship between OP depends on the stage played and the gametype (1v1, 2v2, or FFA.) So before labeling a character OP, take this into consideration. That is all.

While solid advice, I imagine it will go largely unheeded.

I know it will be largely ignored, but hopefully it may help with the people who keep posting - This character is OP because...

Ever see an Evil Cole and Sweeth Tooth play a ranged game together? God all the explosions and fire. And they both got Level 3 around the same time too.

I think Kratos and sackboy do well in all 3

In my opinion, Kratos is the only "noob" character. Simply because of his right/left-square, good supers, and the ability to "lock" characters into the ground by spamming down-square over and over again (although there are several characters who have the ability to do this - try it sometime, ha.) He would be balanced well from a slight AP decrease OR making his right/left square have decreased ranged.

I don't use Sackboy, but he is a great contribution to this game in my opinion. His move set is unique, hard for beginners to understand, and is overall a good character. I think he is fine the way he is. Maybe a very slight decrease (-5AP) for some of his trap moves.

Sackboy doesn't do as well in the smaller stages, but since most of the stages in this game are huge :(

I think sackboy really shines in FFA and is less effective in 2v2

My current 2v2 team says otherwise. Sackboy (friend) + Radeck (me) is tremendously effective. It is disgusting how easily we win sometimes. Here are some highlights:

-Winning 34 to -9
-Radec getting 8 kills with his lvl1 alone
-Sackboy getting 10 kills by using his lvl3 TWICE in a single match
-Completing 75% of our matches with zero deaths.

Granted, really skilled opponents still give us a run for our money. However, out of about 20 or so games, we only lost once, to Evil Cole/Sly. Those guys were scary good.

In a 2v2 match, Sackboy is disruption and enabling. He builds meter incredibly fast. His lvl3 is arguably the strongest in the game, and is even better in a 2v2. While Sackboy is getting kills with his lvl3, I run around gaining AP from the bubbles and grab a powerful item to use once the lvl3 is over.

Sackboy MIGHT be the only overpowered character at the moment. I can't say for certain, but he is an absolute NIGHTMARE to fight against, individual player skill aside.
