Re: DRAKE DOES NOT NEED A NERF...

You know what else is kinda funny is people asked for the Sackboy nerf before it was announced, but with Drake it was not even a subject that was brought up ever really until they announced it isn't that funny people jump on the nerf bandwagon for Drake after they see SuperBot say there looking at him, but never before. Also well you see people complain about it, absolutely I won't be one of them no matter what unjustified nerf Drake gets he is my second main and that's not going to change, I play Drake because he fits my play style not because he has a barrel that apparently most are to stupid to dodge so they wrongfully complain about it.

In stock yes, I've seen a lot of drakes. One thing they share in common is barrel ak. That's all they really do. His close combat is great, the slide is fantastic. And I see you didn't comment on the barrel eating my lvl 1. I capitalized to emphasize your thoughts are an opinion. And to top it off big daddy if fine against fast characters but drake and kratos (chain length makes it tricky). Main issue for drake is the barrel, it's hit box is huge. And using it the air is a bit extreme. It's like if big daddy could ground pound in the air.

I didn't address it eating your level 1 because what's the point to you saying that? It's a good defense strategy there is absolutely nothing wrong with that, that's not cheap that's the person using him being smart to stop you from getting kills, and avoid being killed. Capitalizing to emphasize my points are opinions was just dumb, I never once said they were facts so that proves nothing. The hitbox for the barrel is fine it's not hard to avoid the trip or the explosion. If it manages to trip you that's your fault it.

And of course Big Daddy are slow character matches up bad against people with range that doesn't by any means make Drake OP.

First off your barrel is the only thing to stop my lvl 1. And to be frank I don't think it was intentional. It's an unbalanced attribute. To avoid a the lvl one everyone else has to jump dodge, or use a timed roll. Not drake though, and to have the audacity to say he doesn't need that fixed is ludicrous. I get it you want to protect the character you play but again, that's your opinion. The fact is drake can avoid the super with a spammable move. (Throws out another barrel after first one eats rockets)

Again you have the audacity to say it does need to be fixed maybe you should time when you use your supers better. Even if it was unintentional doesn't make it cheap you just got unlucky, and I don't see how being able to use the barrel this way is unfair I'm sure someone like Sackboy could do the same thing with a well placed cake or fan. And it has nothing to do with wanting to protect "my character" I'm a Ratchet main, and Drake right now is losing my second main spot to Nariko I honestly barely use him right now. I defend him because he doesn't need a nerf he is arguably one of if not the most balanced character in the game, the fact that he is even being considered for a nerf is what's ludicrous.

Sackboys cakes don't absorb it. Only drakes barrel, which is why it's cheap. One character having an advantage no other character has is unbalanced. Everyone but drake has to roll or time jump, and I mean everyone. So yeah drake needs fixing.

I highly doubt you tested it with Sackboy (I haven't either) but still. Radecs level 1 is supposed to explode when it his a object or part of the level so I see nothing wrong with it his barrel is an object. Also I don't think you taking account for how likely it is to happen, I don't think it's a lot at all numerous things could go wrong such as the barrel explodes berm fore hand, it misses, or you time it wrong (I'm gonna say it can be pretty hard to time). This is the most awkward complaint yet, and I'm gonna assume your the only one to ever notice it as the chances of it happening are very unlikely. Even with all that again I don't see this as a problem.
