Not exactly true the chain grab and "infinite" which was not an infinite at all got changed from all the crying

6 Seasons with Black Belt! (should be 8)
The community are hesitant to admit that he's op because it wasn't initially as obvious as Kratos, or Raiden , and thus a lot of people here even main him, and don't want to see him reduced.
Drake is by far the highest tier via top 500 ranked character (FFA and 2v2)and he has the most overall points in the super tier list. He is OP, and no one sucks if they have a hard time against a skilled drake.
Sure Drake is annoying to deal with but he doesn't need a nerf because he's no longer broken. If you're having problems dealing with him or any other character, I suggest you take the time to learn the strengths and weaknesses of all his moves and how to exploit them with your character of choice. A little tip, blocking really helps against his barrel....and every other attack of his.
And just to let you know, I use Parappa, and I can easily take down Drake or any other character because I took the time to learn their and Parappa's moves strength and weakness wise.
