Hah, I knew it. I've always considered Ratchet a bit on the more annoying side of the roster. Mostly because of that **bleep** grab into level 1. Other than that he is extremely balanced as far as anything else goes. And yes, I realize that the setup I just mentioned isn't usable at all times, but it still annoys me just the same. Radec is way too easy to fight, so I don't find him to be much of a problem. Nariko's combos, when blocked, leave her wide open and can be countered with ease. Plus, if you use a character with a counter, she can easily be defeated. Sly will probably be the only character that will be the new "OP" character, that really won't be able to be countered too easily.
Ratchet should be the standard for character balancing in this game. No one attack gains rediculous AP, and alternatively, no one attack is completely useless. His Supers range from great to alright, and he isn't a character that can combo into a Lv 1. They should use him as the template for fixing everyone else.
You forget Ratchet now has the most broken grab in the game now that Raiden's has been fixed.
