Connecting--> opponents found--> connecting--> opponents found--> connecting--> opponents found--> connecting... repeat for 15 minutes until you're matched against Raiden and Kratos.
Once your in the loading screen you'll realize the character select glitch has stuck again....then the host will disconnect and crash your PS3 --- The official Pepsimaaaaaaaaaaaaaan of the PSASBR board. http://tinyurl.com/cyraxwin
Sly is the best 2 v 2 character though, you should be able to deal with everything as him.
Once you get good, yeah. He's not a "pick up and play" character like Kratos at all.
Mastering Sly pretty much requires mastering everyone else if you want to be really good with the counter. The reward for mastering him is high, but it's not easy to do. Lumping Sly into the same category as easy mode button mash characters isn't fair. --- PSN- BlackRain8782
