I'm not usually one to be bothered by something like this, but I'm slowly starting to realize how broken their level 1s are. If you are literally anywhere within the near vicinity, that thing is going to get you. I was almost two feet above a Cole doing his level 1, and he still managed to get me on the way down. Yeah, Raiden's is cheap because of it's length and reach, and don't even think about jumping out of the way of The Murray... But this just seems kind of crazy. At least make it so you need to be a little closer. I can't tell you how many times they just walk up and use it.

How are the Cole's lvl 1's broken? You know how it functions and there's no overpowered element to it either. It's easily interruptable and has to be timed in order to actually catch opponents. If you're complaining about the radius of the lvl 1, you have some research of your own to do. Figure out the radius and practice dodging it.
