So nearly every moment I've had to game lately has been spent playing this online, and I have to wonder if any of you guys have experienced this "bug." In typical fighting game fashion, I've been picking one character and sticking with him to try and get better, but when playing online, once every 10-20 matches or so, the game will randomly select a character other than the one I picked.

I don't know if this is a real bug or if it's something the developers put in there to try and force people to learn other characters, but it's been making me pretty emu. It'd be one thing if it only did this locally or in quick matches, but when I'm playing ranked, I don't want to lose 10 belt levels because the game forced me to play as PaRappa when I selected Big Daddy.

Any one else out there have this happen to them?

yes it happens to me as well. i'm pretty sure it is a bug, it would be pretty dumb if the devs are forcing you to play other characters

I read on another forum that this apparently happens when you are unable to connect to opponents during matchmaking and it has to search again. So if you ever get to where it says, "connecting" and then it goes back to "searching for opponents," back out and start the search manually again to keep this from ruining your game.

Sackboy is also getting a big nerf in this patch. His projectiles will now earn him less AP, and his supers will require more, so we're going to see a lot less of his spam.

Personally I'd like to see them do something to buff Big Daddy's supers. His level 1 is garbage (startup is way too long, range is awful, and no way to combo into it), and his level 2 is pretty easily avoidable for experienced players, only guaranteeing one, maybe two kills in FFA.

I cant believe the 3 inch cotton filled burlap sack was the overpowered character in a game filled with serial killers, demons and warrior princesses.

Currently the top tier in FFA seems to consist of Kratos, Sackboy, and Raiden. At least, they're the ones I see the most. Also very good are Radec, Dante, and Sly.

Sir Daniels level 1 is pretty much useless - the 1 up in the air strike that can't be aimed ... some of the supers were odd choices & can't be used with any accuracy whatsoever, & others are beyond ruthless ... really have to know the characters. sure glad they're doing something to address the skill level situation ... I have had many matches with characters at 900+ level - which means these folks seem to do nothing with themselves other than play All Stars ... I hope to see that more evenly matched after the patch .... let all those folks who play 24/7 compete with one another ....

I love the game but the spamming by Sackboy, Kratos and Radec are inexcusable. Sackboy and Radec invariably stand in one corner - Sackboy throws his projectiles (after dropping the electrified floor mat) and Radec just snipes repeatedly. Kratos' grab/slam and then supers are insanely annoying.
Definitely needs more character balancing.

i see a lot of Raiden. Hes my favorite character so far. But I've only played about 5 of them.

I only find Radec annoying when there's more than one in an FFA and they each pick a side to snipe from. Otherwise they're not too hard to avoid/pressure. Against Raiden and Kratos you just need to focus more on defense and punishing their button mashing rather than trying to land the first punch, because their moves have high priority.

Sackboy is getting nerfed. His tactics won't change, but you won't see him getting two level 3's in one game as much. They've reduced the AP gain of his projectiles and increased the AP cost of his supers.

I played a few matches as Jak last night and did pretty well. His jetboard gives him a lot of mobility options to keep from getting KO'd as much, which helps since he's tough to score a lot of points with (his AP gain is turrible, and if you can't get to his level 3 you're lucky to get more than two or three kills). I've mostly played as Heihachi and Big Daddy since the full release, but played a little with Sly, Kratos, PaRappa, and Radec during the beta.

I like Jak too. And Ratchet's first Super is awesome. I got a triple kill with it online the other night. So far, Drake is the only character that hasnt meshed with me.

Ratchet's first super is really effective. You can use it to get guaranteed KO's in any stage with walls.
