Why does it seem to be so difficult to get 3 or sometimes even 2 kills with Sly's level 2?

7 replies 173 views Edited Dec 5, 2012

In the original beta, Sly's level 2 only shot 1 missle but it was very good nonetheless, and it wasn't hard to get 3 kills with.. In the final product I find myself avoiding ever using his level 2, to the point that if i accidentally get there, I try to lose a little bit of AP, prevent gaining any more when I'm close to it, or going for my level 3 if I have enough time.. The 2 missles seem to have the absolute smallest hitbox and are so easy to avoid.

 

Am I using it wrong or do other Sly players agree with this? I am not asking for a buff btw, I know Sly is already very good.

Because his level 1 is overall amazing. compare it with all the other characters in the game and slys is probably one of the best ones there. Its just like torou's but unlike torou who throws himself into the enemy, sly uses murry to run forward instead. Therefore sly is very protected for his level 1... unlike everyone else.

Alright, so that means I'm not awful with it, its just not that great? That was the reason I made this thread, was wondering if I was just somehow using it wrong. In my experience it is literally worse than his level 1, which seems kinda silly.

Its also easier to dodge than other's lvl 1's, but fine, leave that out.

I hate his Lv. 2. I've always largely stayed away from it unless I accidentally wind up getting it. I usually only activate it if everyone is all bunched up, but even then it's so slow that at lead one person is able to avoid me. I'd rather lose a bit of AP and get two Lv. 1s out of it.

What doesn't make sense to me is how he seemingly moves slower with a jet pack on than he does on foot.

I'll put it this way, at least it's not Sweet Tooth's level 2.

How is Sly's level 1 easier to dodge than other level 1's? Ever heard of Spike?

Sly is already pretty good IMO, we need minor adjustments (not real big buffs) for Spike and Sir Dan.
