Sly's that use there lvl 1 invisible aren't good sly's. they're cheap, and when sly can longer do that and his lvl 1 fixed everyone will qq he sucks. Well you shouldn't have abused him cheapos

I don't understand why he's able to do it while invisible, also why the hell can he be invisible with items

Well, when he uses it he isnt stealth anymore. his only stealth attacks are pretty much his neutral square and his pickpocket ability and thats alright but the neutral square isnt going to do much. All other abilities make him come out of stealth but he goes back in after the animation and recover time. You're not really using sly right if you're not using your stealth to full advantage. People who know my lvl 1 is ready and are jumping so much are a thorn in slys side cuz his lvl 1 is grounded and evading it isnt all that hard. And then the people who complain about the "I cant interrupt his lvl 1" there seems to be a very short amount of frames you can do it but then again its called "UNSTOPPABLE ally" for a reason.

Sly is the only character to have an unstoppable lvl 1. Meaning if you get good with his lvl 1 then gg with stealth added. And his lvl 1 has no wind up time so he can be invisible then Murray flies across the map. Oh I can see sly after he used his lvl 1. It's a huge advantage in ffa and he can set up his lvl 1 with his counter. I wish radec could set up his lvl 1. But alas he can't.

I also don't think it's lag when I get interrupted during slys level 1 (you have to basically hit sly as soon as I press R2, it's insane but it happens.)

I feel like going invisible doesn't help me at all unless I'm running away from a special or match is about to end. (Those slys who hide before using level 1 are very predictable, I always stay back a little from the fight if sly goes invisible)

When you see Sly go invisible with a bar of meter you keep an eye out and stay off the ground, but keep your double jump so he doesn't trap your landing. Also if it's an FFA match stay away from other players. You may lose out on a little AP, but you won't get caught in a triple kill level 1.

As I said in another thread, if you've played Sly for more than fifteen seconds his invisibility isn't an issue. You can easily detect his invisibility if you put a bit of time into learning him. Trust me, I'd know, as I used to be a Sly main.

And no, I didn't use the invis lvl1, for the record.

You know these Sly arguments remind me of when I defending Sackboy pre patch. "It isn't that hard to get around spam and it is very predictable". Even I have to say when I am focusing on another opponent and sly uses invisible Murray even I get annoyed. Heck I have been seeing more and more Sly's online, just like a certain burlap sack.

Well there are always going to be characters that are more used than others, so that's not really an indication of an issue just yet.  If they find some legitimately unfair tactic that can't easily be worked around to most people (such as, y'know, looking at somebody who's "invisible") then go ahead and fix it.  Sackboy wasn't nerfed because he was overused, he was nerfed (and overused, for that matter) because people found a way around SuperBot's intended strategy.  Sly's been considered fair since the beta, and he's gotten less used and less spammed since then.  If he was more spammed, I might hold more agreement with the recent "nerf Sly" campaign.

well i have to admit i don't use sly's invisibility ever, but that's cause i mostly play with my friends and the AI and, well, the AI knows where you're even if you are invicible, so i had to find another tactic and i works like a charm
