true and its 9 on the west coast buddy
Well its 11:45 central time wish we could trade timezone, I need some sleep z_z.
Depends on the game mode & maps. If its FFA then sackboy has a large advantage.
On 2v2 i hate playing against a radec/drake combo. Purely because they will zone you out from both the air and ground, it sometimes feels like the original Donkey Kong. I'm expecting a score to appear above a barrel Drake generates when i jump over it.
In 1v1 I hate Sly matches, the constant teleporting gets old quick. And his invisible super setups can be a pain to deal with.
Sly has too many good thing but makes sense since the lack of blocking and dodge/roll; reflect projectiles, counter, and teleport.

Raiden isn't super OP. He's good, yes. Better than most of the cast as he's got fast attacks and is able to approach you from a far distance for an easy max combo (side O). What makes him slightly OP is his ability to hit confirm his great level one in various ways that are all very practical and very easy to net multikills. His level 2 is basically a level 3. And his level 3 is alright, it's basically just his second level 3. Yeah, he's got two level 3 supers.
If Kratos wasn't so OP, then I'd say Raiden is OP. But Kratos' chain grab > all Raiden approaches.

Raidens lvl 2 isn't that great. It's so easy to avoid its crazy.
After you get killed the first time yeah. It's still a pretty easy 3 kills for a level 2. That's on par with some level 3's already.

His level 3 isn't complete garbage. It still nets an easy 3 kills which is just as good as some other level 3s. Then it's basically like his level 2 except now you're faster, able to use better attacks to catch them, and it lasts longer. You can usually net 3-6 kills with his level 3. It's not superb like Radec's or Sackboy's. But it's better than Toro/Parappa/Heihachi/Spike/etc.

I say yes he is. He is just like Kratos long reach, builds ap to fast due to combos you don't even need a brain to due, and his moves seem to take priority over everybody else. All his supers are good. My biggest gripe with him is he is a no skill character just like Kratos all you have to do is hit square like your life depends on it.
I'd say he needs some skill. Raiden may be fast, but his range is short and his moves are predictable when played by someone you're describing. Kratos is just as fast but has range. And auto-aim.
