Hiding in the corner. Put out fan. Put stun pad. Throw cake. Build Super 3. = Win.

 

Most **bleep** no skill moron character ever.

If you notice him in a corner just turn all your focus to him. I think that's how they intended him to work.

The hilarious part is that thats exactly how the AI plays Sackboy. I guess its intended that way, i think SuperBot wanted him to be a turtle character.

Yes. He is as intended. People will learn to focus him in free-for-alls eventually. 1v1 shouldn't be that hard to keep him close.

It just sucks when you're trying to focus him down but the other two players are on your  @ss.

You know there's something seriously wrong with a character when his presence forces the other players to call a truce and hunt him down...

Well considering his combo potential and meter gain for close range is absolutely awful he NEEDS to use his projectiles. The same way PaRappa NEEDS to get close because his ranged attacks are horrible.

It's how the character is meant to be played. At range he has an advantage, upclose he can barely fight back.

I think that's the drawback to Sackboy. He can dominate games from afar, but once everyone does focus him down, he could be next to useless. The other players can still gain AP while focusing on Sackboy, but he has to be clever to gain his AP. It's just that no one is bothering him so he doesn't have to be clever.

Easier said than done. In theory, it makes sense, but when the other 2 players are in collusion with the spammer Sackboy and focus all their effort on stopping you from stopping Sackboy, it's not as easy as you make it out to be.
