I'm still up in the air on this one. My candidates are:
- Sir Daniel
- Big Daddy
While Jak probably have the poorest AP gain in game (5AP for the peacemaker !?), Big Daddy has the worst move set, so I'm leaning towards him as this games Dan.
Sir Dan is a beast, but if his level one can be dodged 100% of the time, his level two is going to be luck based and an easy dodge if the player doesn't get initially hit, and his level three while being a definite two kills on a 1v1, isn't very reliable in a free for all compared to some of the other level threes.
I'm a Sir Dan fan. He was one of the first characters I played and got good with, but his specials kill his chance at being one of the better characters.
But yeah, it's a shame Big Daddy aint so hot, and one of his most useful moves (Ground pound) is also one of the most irritating.
A knowledgeable player will never get hit by his level 1, his level 2 is a crapshoot, level 3 is merely midtier. Only reason I have taken him this far is that 80% of people are ignorant on the autododge of his level 1. When you do come up against someone who dodges it, you're boned.
Jak has worse meter gain and bad 1 and 2 supers, but he at least has the best keep away game and amazing mobility. You will never hit that stubborn **bleep** with a ground super, even the kill confirms.
