Everyone should pick Sly Cooper vs those hack and slash combo characters. Spam open circle followed by a few open squares and you will have your OP level one. You should always have a mine out in a key area, and if they get too close like they're gonna grab you, forward triangle. I main Sly and just realized that I don't respect those characters anymore because of this. Maybe if everyone does it, it will show up on SuperBot's telemetry system and they will fix his OP counter and level 1.
Make Sly's counter punishable and nonspammable, and make his level 1 more interruptable.
