Even if it is punishable, I find it odd that Drake (a character with low risk and high reward zoning) has melee that is more difficult to punish than a character like Parappa. I don't feel like there is much justification in making it so that it requires strict timing for characters to punish Drake's melee when pure melee characters are far more easier to punish.
Also, Dante's jab is one of the fastest in the game. So...assuming he can punish it with strict timing, what about everyone else? lol. Some characters have grabs that reach too high and can never grab Drake during his slide.
Ah well...I'm going to stop now. It really isn't my place to try to convince how other people's characters behave compared to other characters. Most people only want buffs or minimalistic nerfs (with buffs to "compensate") for their characters anyhow (not directed towards anyone in particular really, just something I've noticed)...

Yeah i'm really not liking that at all. Like this whole entire line. Sly as a perfect & relevant example.
Yeah...don't get me started on Sly.
His whole gameplay revolves around being a pain in the **bleep**, so I don't play him. Sorry, I just do not have enough respect for the character to go through the process of learning him.
@Bomb you calling me out and it really doesn't bother me... apparently you haven't been in the lab to test out your theories....I have.. I'm not just talking to be talking...98 percent of people online using drake isnt even using him to 30 percent of his full potential.... and If your cant get past barrel ak spam you definitely are gonna have a problem with me.... low risk high reward zoning?...so characters with high mobility and/or with divekicks can't get past him (Parappa, BD, Raiden, Dante, Nariko, Good Cole), heavy rushdown charcters don't have the upper hand against him (FP, Sweet Tooth, Heihachi), and there aren't people in the cast that surpasses him in zoning (Ratchet, Sackboy, Isaac and possibly Emmett)?....Yess he is super godlike and should have a throne next to Kat-_-....All the characters I named I have played against at a high level and NONE of those MU's are easy for drake...I work HARD for my victories so don't you or anybody else ever get it twisted or question the authenticity of my skill. As I said before I will dicuss it in the podcast... not really in the mood to go back and forward today
