getting to level 3 in the dojo is pretty hard because no one ignore you there.
I've never seen anyone dodge radecs level 3. His guns can fire off pretty rapidly.
Sackboy doesn't get AP during his level 3. He can get it afterwards when his ap meter has reset, but everyone has access to his ap bubbles just like everyone has access the ap dropped by rappa's stereo.
So thats why he ended up with a 11-10 kill death ratio? It was ridiculous. In a small space like that, the cake landed a hit on someone almost every time. All he did was the cake and such combo and the body slam when someone got in close before he ran away to spam on the other side. One person even left before his first level three (hence the amount of kills being lower than it could). He got two of those off. He also had a couple level twos and a number of level ones. This is with him doing really just the spam and run.

Hit the pad. I usually use ratchets buzz blades. But here's the problem: you need legit skill yo beat sackboy. But you don't need ANY skill to win with him. I would know. My sackboy is as douchie as any.
Seriously, they should've tested Sackboy better. I'm all for him being a beast but right now he's broken as HELL! Not only does he gain AP way too easily, his freakin electric trap literally has no cast time on it. It's the FASTEST trap with the WIDEST range, and it isn't as easily destroyable as Coles', Sweet Tooth's, and Sly's traps. Also why does his cake hit you after it lands/sticks to something? In LBP2 it was used as a stool after that...that's what it should be here...not free AP and knock back. I won't even go into how broken his LV 3 is....all I will ask is WHY DOES IT ALWAYS SPAWN YOU ON THE FLOOR NO MATTER IF YOU'RE IN THE AIR ON ACTIVATION OR NOT?! Sackboy makes the beta version of Sly look like a pansy. That's how OP he is.
And while they're at it....FIX KRATOS'S FORWARD SQUARE ATTACK! The dang thing shouldn't home in on someone. We've been saying this since the dang beta.

Just no...Sackboy is horrible at close range and aside from the cake his projectiles are too slow to use at range in 1vs1...

Sackboy doesn't need any nerfs. Sackboy seems overly strong because he has a distinct advantage in FFA while being pretty balanced 1v1. Unfortunately FFA is the most popular ranked gametype so the complaining won't stop until they (hopefully don't) do something to Sackboy or include a ranked 1v1 ladder. I'll always try to combat a Sackboy the best I can, but I'm not going to beat myself up too bad if it wins in FFA.

Dude, I said my joke but all kiddin aside. This game isn't balanced at all. Since this is about Sackboy my problems are this. He gets in a corner sets a fan and the electric pad throws those balls you try to get to him but you have to make it through the cake mine field and the other characters. Once you get to him your either electrocuted, bounced back, body slammed or comboed to the other side of the screen. Also because of his short stature some attacks go right over his head. Others think this is acceptable because he's a "keep away" character. Well I main Radec who is supposed to be the same type, but doesn't have the devices that he has nor the AP build. Sacks can get 2 level 3s only other character that can do that is Kratos.
^Yup this is 100% true. I knew there would be Sackboy user's on here trying to defend him but compare Radec to Sackboy and tell me who has the greater advantage over characters? As Radec you actually have to WORK to get away from people or knock them away from you. As Sackboy, you spam the trap, then either cakeinator or combo.
Let this be known....NO far/mid range character should be able to compete with a close range character AT CLOSE RANGE (and vice versa). Right now Sackboy is the only range character that has beast far/mid range AND close range combat. Heck he's the only character that has both great close and far range PERIOD! This is the main reason why he's OP.
