Sir Dan is ridiculously slow...

His combos are near impossible to land and once he's stuck in a combo there's no way out. Plus his Level 2&3 Supers are pretty easy to evade if you know what you're doing...I think he needs a small amount of tweaking in order to compete in Free-for-all play..

I strongly disagree. Strongly.

 

It's easy to get in the middle of the action, scoop up some players with his Up-Square attack and then use his level 1 or 2. He's only too slow if you don't play him right. I won a Free For All match with Sir Dan against 2 Raidens and 1 Dante.

I loved sir dan...but I haven't played him online at all. I thought his slow attacks/movement would be a problem online but I'm not sure of that as I haven't played him online.

Only played a few matches with him before release and I thought his hammer move was frustratingly slow both in execution and recovery - it may have changed since then though. Besides that, I don't think he was 'ridiculously' slow, though I did feel I had to rely on his charge too often to get back into the action..

Again, those observations are only based on a few matches though. Smiley Happy Would like to hear what others think.

Try to use his hammer when grounded. It comes out much quicker than his air hammer.

Sir Dan's attacks look pretty fast. His maneuvering speed is slow.

I haven't gotten much of a chance to use him in free for all, but I disagree. He's my best character right now.

I think his supers are the real problem

Setups. Dan is great at setups. Use them.

Dude first of all his level three is something you DONT want to get its short takes too long to kill someone and his level 2 can get half kills at half cost his level two is fine if you know what your doing you want to kill a guy when it comes out and trap the rest personally I only use his level 1 and get 2 kills almost everytime I use it
