"Omg this character killed me therefore they are OP DEMAND NERF" "I lost with this character therefore they are underpowered DEMAND BUFF" "Unrealistic character suggestion/moveset!" Did I miss any? Honestly it gets tiresome reading the same thing. Stop complaining about every character and stop suggesting stupid things just because you are a fan of it.
My first point. Yes, some players can be annoying. But don't blame the character, blame the person spamming with them! Poor Kratos gets all this hate when it is the player that should be getting it. Kratos, and other "spammers", CAN be used without mashing that square button. I've seen some very skilled Kratos users who barely use square attacks.
Second point. Unrealistic character suggestions. Anime characters, characters from unpopular games, and just plain stupid suggestions. Goku, Naruto, Shadow, etc. You actually have to think about it from SSM's perspective. People already think they copied Smash Bros. Do you seriously think they will add Shadow when SSBB had Sonic? And I shouldn't even explain why anime characters shouldn't be in this game. Last thing, they obviously dont listen to our suggestions. I doubt anyone wanted Kat, Emmett, or Zeus. But they were added because they managed to get those ones, not because they were frequently requested.
Anyone agree? Disagree? Sorry for the rant but you people need to pull it together.
this is really from my perspective. i have seen some threads where the person gave reasonable or legitimate reasons for a nerf. now the ones complaining a character being OP because they lost, well yea, thats annoying. even i'll admit, i say characters are OP but i mostly say those out of anger or rage, dont necessarily mean it. plus if gonna suggest something, have some logical idea to back it out, thats what i'd think. so yea, i agree with you on that one.
totally agree about the second part. if you lose, its not the character's fault, it's a combination of the player opponent and one's self. if i lose, its because my opponent just played "better" (i use the term loosely). i feel half the posts are just out of rage or anger and so they aint thinking properly.
third point, agreed. HOWEVER, i do feel many of thm are so unrealistic, they know that but go with it because the idea is fun in itself. i loved the post that somebody made about LIghtning's moveset from FF13 despite the fact that is unrealistic in itself imo.
Jak is a perfect example. Along with Sir Dan. These are not underpowered characters.

Kratos has very useful square attacks, yes, but when it is known to everyone that it is annoying and stupid to use them over and over, maybe you shouldn't use them. His square moves are powerful but they were not meant to be used so repeatedly! My point is that if you know something you are doing is wrong or spammy then don't do it! You make this game less enjoyable for others, which leads to the OMG SO OP threads.
So when you realize those square moves are making your opponents mad and making the match unfair by spamming it, try to use the character a different way! There are better ways to use Kratos, I've seen it before. His other moves are good too I don't get why people don't use them.
Well, on topic, this community is going downhill! I remember the pre-release waaaaay back and everyone was so nice! No balancing threads. Just having fun! Discussing hopes and dreams! I think you hit the nail right on the head with this thread.
