I read that post about the community ruining Sackboy and then I remembered when Omar said that they weren't going to Nerf someone just because people complained, they were going to look at the info on how characters were being used and investigate if there was a problem. And the Community and SuperBot have spoken. Sackboy was Op, and he's getting NERFD No more spamming for you.
Based on the collected data? I can't trust Superbot to tweak the balance system if they just rely on data. They should have used data wisely AND play online themselves for many hours in order to figure out the core of the problem. The nerf on Sackboy doesn't seem rational, but we'll see.
And they clearly went into their system and saw that 95% of all Sackboy moves ever executed were his goo ball thing. This patch is necessary.
