How!???? The slightly longer startup on his air forward square?

He seems just as good as he was before, to me.

Agreed. I never even understood why he was ever considered so bad to begin with, other than his supers.

Spike did mostly get worse though... looking at his changes

- His bananas now have a 5 second timer
- His air forward square has slower startup (the uncharged version, so it's a worse combo starter)
- His ground hula hoop had its hit reactions changed to make it all combo more consistently, but that change means that it knocks aerial opponents away, so it can't be used as part of a midscreen AP burst any more. So now it's 100% useless
- His fully charged slingshot gets 30AP and ejects... so it's still useless, and now you can't combo after it if you're next to them if it somehow hits

His only actual buffs were his air hula hoop change (which is still useless as an actual attack) and his up throw change (which gave him some new confirms/combos but they're gimmicky like everything else he has).

Spike's was never a BAD character (aside from his supers), it's just that most other characters are better. He's just meh at everything, he's more annoying than an actual threat.

If it makes you feel better it's like that all other character's mine attacks.
Every.single.one

It doesn't bother me that much.

Yeah well, Sackboy needed a break

Besides, the way most Sackboys use shockpads, if it doesn't hit you immediately then he's probably gonna lay down another one soon.

Him and Zeus are the worst characters in the game by far.

No, Radec is still the worst character in the game by far. That said, Spike is now really bad, too, which is sad.
