They are in every match.
So I diverse it up and play with the characters that usually don't get picked and winning with Fat Princess feels good for some reason, I would love too see the anger of the Kratos user's on the other side of the tv if I could..
Well 5 not 4 but you get my drift...
I have actually played about 100 or so matches in 2 days (ewnolife) and have seen less than 10Dante's and less than 5 Nariko's lol,
i see Jak and Daxter
Raiden and Sackboy all the time, the most overused i would say is Jak, but he's not very OP lol so i never cared
Patches the Hyena (Dark/Demon's Souls) for All-Stars! His level three could have the player leave the match, enter a random match, and get one-hit-one-kill's on everybody! xD
Can't really argue with that list, because it is right for the most part. I encountered about 5 people who weren't playing as those named characters today. But I use every single one of them typically. I try not to use Raiden or Kratos, but sometimes I will. And I like Nariko and Dante. Even though once Raiden and Kratos get their well deserved nerfs those 2 are probably next on the nerf bandwagon.
