I think Drake will survive the nerfs. I am a little bit concerned for Evil Cole however, they nerfed his giga punch's confirm in a significant way and removed his grab confirm.

Perhaps, but unless I am missing something, his Giga Punch is now his only reliable confirm. His level one could end up being pretty hurt if it has to rely on a nerfed Giga punch.

 

EDIT: For the post below mine, I do not play evil cole, I play Ratchet. Why cant I be concerned for another character?

Evil Cole still has an easy to land KILL-CONFIRM, and you're worried you'll have trouble gettings kills because it's not all that reliable to you? Whatever happened to instant, safe, and easy predictions? I don't want to live on this planet anymore.

I find it funny how many people are forgetting that you can't block after an aerial now... meaning you can't block a giga punch after an aerial... Meaning easy KC still.

Kratos and Raiden aren't breaking the game. It's just people aren't learning how to play the game and just blame it on the balance of the character. The people who are good at this game are usually people that know how to block and punish. I'm not saying Kratos and Raiden are **bleep** because they're extremely good. I'm just saying try and exploit the players weakness before **bleep** about it.

Heres the problem. Kratos and Raiden have almost no noticable weakness, especially Raiden. And even those weakness's arent enough to make them balanced.

Raiden has no weakness? lol he's not even overpowered. He's definitely one of those characters where he needs to do combos just to get ap. That makes Raiden almost usless in free for all matches. Raiden is only really good in 1 vs 1 matches.

Are you kidding? Raiden dominates FFA. All he needs to do is wait until one of the three other players is occupied then boom, kill confirm. He doesn't take much to use.

And the non-existent cooldown on Kratos' square attacks is an absolute farce. I don't care at all about Kratos except for that one thing. It's brutal.

I'm still hoping for Jak's Level 2 to get a significant buff, in terms of increased blast radius (vertically and 360-degree) and hit-duration. If you do his Level 2 on a slope or a platform, it's wasted; and I'm sorry, but a simple air dodge when within obvious range of it should not make you immune to an explosion like that...

As for everything else, as a Jak player, I actually like it. I love how his Gyro Burster actually seems somewhat useful now... I'm still curious if his up-circle is actually gonna be useful or not, even with it being slightly easier to land now. It doesn't seem to serve any purpose; no combo follow-up or anything, because it lifts the opponent too high to hit afterwards.
