So completely honest question to Drake users.

#1Pink_a_DinkPosted 1/31/2013 3:42:36 PM
Do you guys think it requires skill to play with him? I tried him out today, and I managed to get my level 3 once and my level 1 twice, and I rarely used any other buttons besides neutral circle and neutral triangle. And honestly, he's not fun to play with because all he practically does is shoot. I'm not even trying to troll I'm just wondering if you guys think he's actually fun to play with or if you think it takes any skills to pick him up.

Yes he is fun to play
No he does not require skill

His mobility options are awesome and make him a blast to play. He is my main. I play him because he's fun, but I recognize that his meter gain is freaking amazing and his supers are great and that makes him slightly OP

He doesn't take skill. Ive done the same thing. Only thing that takes skill with characters in this situation are the AP burst which goes into combos, thats it.

But if you know there moves you can just use them or spam them and win.

He's the most fun character to play as imo. And of course he requires skill, just like everyone in the game.

If you only use one or two attacks then you aren't utilizing his full potential. And that goes for all the characters in the game.

I had high hopes for Drake and wanted to make him one of my mains before the game came out, but once I finally played as him I couldn't figure him out at all and left him alone for the longest. Just the other day though I decided to give him another go and now I can use him. Not very effectively, but still. Now that I know how to use him, he is indeed fun.

And really, any character requires skill. Maybe some not as much as others, but there's a big difference between barrel-spamming Drakes and ones who know how to effectively utilize their other moves.

I spent a lot of time complaining that the barrel was ridiculous without actually playing as drake, so I did an online match against a couple of purple belts and a red belt and won by getting to my level three super and almost getting there again by the end of the match. The ap gain is ridiculous, and the fact that you can combo run and gun backwards so well of the barrel makes it really, really easy to play as him.

In my opinion, him and Raiden are the most brain dead characters in this game. I'm trying to main Raiden myself, and good God its the most absurd thing ever. Especially when there's two Raidens in one team.
