Now that I've got your attention, I've been meaning to ask something of the board: what is the public opinion on Ratchet? It seems to be that he's high-tier, but he doesn't seem to get anywhere near as much hate as Kratos and Nathan Drake.
he really shines on small stages imo and he can do well on larger ones. solid A tier imo
the other night i was playing on dojo and got 12 kills with 3 supers 5 from a lvl 2, 4 from another lvl 2, and 3 from his lvl 1
on larger stages he has to work harder to his super set-ups people can run from Clank easily due to lack of control you have for time orbs and his lvl 1 set-up takes more effort when you have to travel all the wall to a wall. people know what you are trying to do and will stay in the middle. but even with these odds against him, he can still be successful on larger ones and his lvl 3 is the slowest of all the FPS supers, very easily dodged.

Y'know, as a Ratchet main, I have found large stages to be a problem. I've only ever done 4-person FFAs (those and 2v2 are the only randomables, and I don't like the idea of disappointing my random partner or getting a terribad partner) but I've found that Clank seems to be completely useless on large stages, outside of the initial kill you get from starting the Super adjacent to someone. I've heard that lag is a cause for Level 3's laser's missing, but I suspect that I may not be using rockets as well as I should be. As it is, it seems like I have to wait for a proper brawl to start up to use the RYNO on, or wait to get Level 3 after hitting Level 2.
The Jak & Daxter stage is the one that gives me the most trouble, what with the lack of walls.
