This game is too unbalanced for 1v1. Certain characters just aren't meant to be very good at it.
At least 70% of the cast is viable for 1vs1.
That's already better than most fighters.
lmao go home
Roughly at least 16 characters are viable enough for 1vs1 according to the latest tier list. So I guess 66% then.
Btw just fyi Domino has been doing work with Big Daddy lately.
Anyway, I find that a lot of the complaints that people have in 1vs1 would STILL exist in FFA and 2vs2, it's just the player pool for those modes are so diluted, there are bound to be tons of bad players to exploit amongs the good ones.
Whereas since to even do 1vs1, you need to be dedicated enough to seek it out, I find even the worst 1vs1 players are half-decent.
For instance, say a Sir Dan player argues he has too much trouble killing in 1vs1. Is this true? Sure. But it would also be a problem in FFA and 2vs2, it's just your typical random in that mode probably doesn't know to down tech and falls into easily avoidable traps.
