Drake's not all bad to deal with. Sure his barrels can get annoying, but it's not like they're hard to deal with....but then again, I play Sackboy and just reflect all his stuff. I've never ran into a really good Drake.

Drake is definitely op. He has great close combat and ranged abilities, an answer for every situation, great speed/mobility, combos, the barrel, and his attacks are very hard to punish since he's always moving in one direction. Even his moves that sound like they should be punishable like every other character (ground pound style move) has him immediately roll away from danger.

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.

His close range combat is average it's good but only great if you have put effort into finding his ap burst combos with just his close range, he has an answer for most situations as he should he's a good zoner I think he is somewhat weak against characters with air mobility since the grande launcher is not super reliable aiming wise, I've never had trouble punishing any of his moves, I assume your referring to his ledge crumple and zip line and I wouldn't go as far as to say he rolls out of danger he doesn't roll that far after he is still in the danger zone. Right now Drake is my third main and sees basically no playtime so I don't defend him because he's my character as people would assume. I think the reason he looks so good stat wise is he's the most played character. For me I just don't see the op factors he has that everyone claims make him op his barrel included I don't have any problems against most Drakes.

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.
