Sack boy's Nerf Was Not Because of Just The Community

21 replies 569 views Edited Dec 1, 2012
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.

Yep, SuperBot has telemetry. So they can see for themselves who really is OP and who needs a buff.

Sackboy wasn't OP, it was just far too easy to spam with him.

He was OP. You don't get nerfed if your not OP.

His only problem was his level 3 being too good for how much it cost (pretty sure it cost less than most characters to achieve because he lacked combo's)

The rest of his moveset was fine.

So here's an thought, why didn't they just make it so that players don't repawn in a bubble the same way players don't respawn in another box for Raidens level 3?

You get nerfed if you're OP and you get nerfed if you're too easy to spam with. There's a difference between going around like Kratos and beating everyone up and spamming a couple moves in the corner.

@Nocturnal__Gamer There's also a difference between spamming and actually zoning. Zoning means adjusting to whatever scenario you are in rather than just keep using the exact same move over and over. If a Radec player kept using his sniper and ONLY his sniper and some player gets close to him it's not going to work, the same was with Sackboy but people just ignored him all match then wondered how he suddently managed to get a level 3 despite no player chasing him down...

my issue with sackboy was the fact he could use 4 moves and win. I have yet to see his anvil, or his spider webs, ext...

I feel like he has some cool combos if people would take the time to find them
