All-Stars Top 500 (Feb 2013 Season)

Oh noes! It's not the end of the season yet! Yes, I know. But there's only a couple of days left, and significant changes are unlikely.

 

Big props again to BIGPOPPA21089 again for collecting the data.

 

This information is only for reference and not intended to prove a character is over/underpowered, or (un)popular.

 

For this season, Kat and Emmit were introduced halfway through, so thier leaderboard rankings are exepectly low.

I spammed Drake in ranked FFA, and it was easier to get a red belt.

It's not horribly unbalanced, people just opt to play the "easier" characters. Those who're actually good at them are basically guaranteed a top 500 spot, whereas the less accessible characters need to work for it. Hence why there's such a disparity in ladder representation.

Your post is a bit contradictive. "Those who're actually good at them are basically guaranteed a top 500 spot, whereas the less accessible characters need to work for it." That is essentially saying that the two you listed are mutually exclusive which is not the case, nor does it really offer any kind of evidence as to the ladder disparity. The game is unbalanced. It is much MUCH harder for anyone to get even remotely high without the popular characters ie. your drakes, your raidens your Kratos. Their moves are much more viable in FFA than 1v1 situations. They are also vastly easier to use. The ladder disparity has to do with skill yes but not as much as you are making it out seem. There is a reason there is only 1 Dante and 124 Drakes in the top 500. Sly Cooper, Drake and Kratos users combined count for more than 50% of the top 500. 265 Users to be exact.  When 3 Characters out of a roster of 22 make up more than 50% of the top 500 the game is unbalanced.
