There's no reason to play Sackboy in FFA

Anyone trying to defend Sackboy's FFA capabilities is confirmed to have only played against idiots. Sackboy is trash in FFA against Drake/Kratos/Raiden/Sly/anyone else who gets decent meter and doesn't rely on Level 3.


Sackboy's best match-up is Drake, and Kratos is easily comboed due to his size. A good Raiden, Sly, and Toro are the ONLY characters Sackboy will have a lot of trouble with. Everyone else is easily taken care of.

A. maybe if the drake is an idiot who does nothing but spam barrel in front of your fan

B. maybe if the kratos is an idiot who doesn't realize his chains make your short-range slaps look like a joke

...I hope this is a joke. Yeah, you can send Drake's barrel back at him with fan, amazing. If that's literally all he does then sure, it's a good matchup. But tranquilizer KILLS Sackboy, a lot of his moves destroy cake and shockpad, and the slide and zipline make it easy for Drake to get close and throw Sackboy before he can do anything. And Kratos? He's easily comboed due to his size, sure, but again I'm talking about FFA where combos are interrupted all the time before you can get halfway through them. His chains destroy all of Sackboy's traps and his range makes it a real challenge to even hit him.

Sly, Raiden, and Toro are all bad matchups for him, but that's not even the start of it. Even Spike and Big Daddy can easily tear his traps apart. He just doesn't have enough ways to build meter against too much of the cast,
