No characters are overpowered

Every character is balanced. Radec has a strong sniper but sucks up close. Fat princess gets 3 kills with a level 1. So wgat who cares? I know this isnt all of them but im just voicing my opinion

I agree. From what I've seen, even Fat Princess (who I thought was the weakest) is excellent in the right hands, just like every other character. It'll be hard for serious players to make tier charts, because the game is one of the most balanced I've ever seen (well, in the most recent build, not the Beta build, since there are bugs, move balances, et al. that aren't in the SDCC build from what we've seen).

I don't know if I was being trolled, but from what I hear, Fat Princess has been rather strong in most builds.


It's way too early to know if anyone is overpowered or not, and what makes a character "overpowered" is often based on the context of how one is playing. A strong 1-on-1 character may not have the proper tools to make doubles as easy, and slower characters can generally get away with more in free for alls because each player is paying attention to so much that they can be caught offguard.

 

There may very well be overpowered characters, but no one's going to know for absolute sure until the game goes live.

I also agree. Some characters will have their annoyances (Radec), but it's nothing that can't be dealt with. You just have to approach enemies differently (always keep Radec close)

I think if anything, Sly's Super 1 is more easier to get kills with than his Super 2, but I haven't tested this enough to be sure. But aside from that, I've no problems with balance. They did a great job.

Agreed, it really depends on who you're facing, what stage, your skill level, the opponents' skill level. However, just from my experience with the beta so far, here's more or less what I've seen:

 

Characters I've won the most with (I rotate, don't have a main yet but will say that those 3 were my top used characters):

1. Sly

2. Radec

3. Kratos

 

When I lost, the winning character was most often:

1. Sly

2. Radec

3. Fat Princess

 

Character I've seen win the less with: PaRappa, and the guy controlling him was almost always Dormin lol.

To say the game is perfectly balanced is retarded

Kratos and Radec are my two mainstays right now. Sly has too many good options in 1 on 1 to not at least be considered strong.

Is there anyway we can get this guy removed from the forum, my blood presure spikes whenever I see one of his comments.

There has yet to be a "perfectly balanced" fighter with no overpowered character, so chances are that he's entirely correct. Could he have said it in a better way? Sure, but what he said has some viable truth to it.
