All you do is play ffa and 2v2.
1v1 sack boy isn't OP
1v1 Kratos isn't OP, yes he has range but his level 1 is crap for 1v1 play, He needs level 2 to be deem scary, so in a stock match of 4, he needs to build super 2 atleast 4x, that's alooot of meter, and if you get hit THAT MUCH you deserve to lose.
Hell Evil cole beats Kratos in 1v1.
I say Kratos is high tier at best in 1v1, and i'm being nice lol.
In 2v2 and ffa? I throw that F***** up there with the big boys hands down. Kratos will kill you in 2v2, no room at all and enough range to hit both you and your partner. Would be another story if Friendly Fire was on and he could also hit his partner but that's not that case.
I would say Nariko>>>Kratos in 1v1 fights. Nariko mains haven't fully developed yet, but once they do I believe they will make her better then kratos.
Raiden is really the only problem tho, that's just too many ways to land his super 1.
I'm curious on your guys 1v1 tier list.
The only mode I play is 1v1 and I can see the "Balance"... FFA isn't meant to be balanced so go ahead use your kratos and sackboy.
Dude, Kratos is garbage in 1v1. Or maybe that's just from Big Daddy's ridiculously good perspective.
Now Raiden on the other hand...
That being said Friendly fire would break this game. Works well in smash, but you don't have insta-kill everything on the screen supers in smash (That are required for play anyway.).
2v2 can be a good way to judge some characters though, but you have to take it with a grain of salt. Sure it is a competitive mode, but it's very different from 1v1 at the same time.
Also, IDK what to think about Nariko. On one hand she seems like a 1v1 beast. On the other, a lot of her combo starters are unsafe as hell and she seems to super lose against super armor.
So we're just gonna pretend that the Star Fox characters in Smash don't jump in giant tank that kill everything on screen. You know, after they grab the Smaaash Ball.
