Re: Sly cooper's Level 1 is Overpowered

Jan 12, 2013

I agree, however a Sly player is easy to dodge sometimes, but lets say for example you are in FFA, a Sly gains his level 1. You dodge it but the other two people are just not focusing on Sly. So even if you are a skilled player SLy just got 2 free kills.

 

I think I described this terribly.

I get what your saying that's y I don't play ffa. I'm gonna go with the posters who said level 3 is way worse than 1. I dodge level ones all day... Especially in 1v1.. But level 3 is ridiculous.

I'd say do one of two things to make this level 1 balanced. Either

- Make it easier to cancel and give it a little more startup time (It would still be able to be activated while invisible)

This wouldn't cripple his level 1 too much as it would still have the advantages of being able to be used while invisible and it still has that insane hitbox. 

 

- Make it so Sly can't use it while invisble (Current startup time and still hard to cancel)

This would make it still almost imposible to stop from happening and still quick, but the fact a Sly would have to go visible to activate it, makes it far more obvious when he is going to use it. This would also mean dodging it would be much easier.

 

If anything were to happen to his level 1 it should be one of those, not both. Got it, SB? 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


The first one would work great. The second one, not so much. All a Sly would have to do is let go of L1 and press R2 in quick succession. It would still pretty much be just as bad as if he were invisible.

Is Sly's level one overpowered? Yes. does this need to change, in other words be nerfed? No, the simple fact is that sly isn't like most charecters. His combos are almost non-existant, therefore most players rely on forward triangle to gain AP, and due to the fact that many people online just block sly and attack, the players are pressured into using their level one, instead of saving up until level three. Therefor the level one should be reliable. I main dante and evil cole, so don't say that I'm a spammer that just doesn't want his attacks to get nerfed, although I do occasionally use sly, just for the invisibility.

I know that I know not

Sly is overpowered as hell but if you take his lvl 1 away from him he will only rely on his lvl 3, because his lvl 2 is slow as **bleep** and it can only get 1 kills or 2 at best

For the record mentioning Evil Cole as one of your mains then saying "so don't say I'm a spammer" is almost equivalent to trying to look in two directions at once.

I think just like Fat Princess the hitbox should only be in the direction there going, not behind. So I main Sly and was fighting and the person rolled as I used Murray and got behind me and still got killed? And I noticed as a couple of times whenever I would summon Murray he would trip out of nowhere? But I agree of decreasing  Murrays distance.

I don't understand SB, they make a level one that good, but then completely **bleep** on Sweet Tooths, level one.

Sweet Tooth has a good level one and doesn't cost much AP. His level 3 is also a beast. Folk have issue with Sly because they take there eye of the ball and don't see him. He doesn't need a nerf at all.

It's funny, cause everytime I abuse my infinite mic grab with slys (even after I've gotten lvl 3) no one hits me.

Skill, Coordination, and Experience will lead a team to victory.
