easiest character vs hardest character to master?
other than jefailley, what character is hardest to play as? i've tried stream and he seems hard, but the cheapest in my book definitely goes to charge spamming baz players.

what are the easiest characters to play as and hardest, and hardest to play against and easiest?

I actually think Stream is much harder to play than Jefailey. Jefailey is super unforgiving, sure, but what you have to do with him isn't that complex (just do short neutral dives into kick to put up the "wall of feet" and build kickfactor). S-Kill is pretty hard to play, too.

The easiest character to play is definitely pre-patch The Baz. You can get extremely high ranks just by mashing Kick until they come close, then flying across the screen. This strategy shouldn't work as well anymore now. Dive is also very easy to learn.

Easiest i would say is dive, so straightforward you know where you stand and his ground ability can really catch people off guard. Hardest id definitely say stream, maybe followed by Mr. N. with jefaily youve just gotta get you to how long of a charge gets you what distance.

Mastering switch up angles with Uncle Sensei can be initally challenging. I would say the most difficult character to master (barring Kenny) would be Pao or S-Kill. If you ignore Pao's portal, she is easy. If you try to use it, you have whole other game to play.

Using Dive's skills and controlling the space is a tough thing to master. People under estimate him. He is a solid divekicker. Kick on the other hand, is very easy.

Easiest: Dive
Hardest: Kenny

Hardest to master that ISN'T a joke(Sorry Jefailey) goes to Stream, hands down. People get turned off from him really fast when they use him and don't understand him, but he is a beast when used properly(Plus you need practice to learn how to avoid silly game problems like flamebaiting immediately when you kickfactor because of how you held the buttons. They really should fix that).

Easiest would be Kick. Simple special moves, simple dive and kick arc, and simply top tier with his speed, kickfactor, skills, everything rolled into one. So easy to learn him and jump right into the fight, since you don't really have to worry about counterpicks and can just take Kick with a Kick gem and play to win. As long as you are quick to learn how other characters work, Kick is probably the best 'intro' character that can stick with you to the end.

Honorable mention for hard goes to Uncle Sensei for button mashing the switches. Tires the fingers/hands/wrists out really fast because of all the rapid split second switching that needs to be done sometimes. Not too hard to master him, but you will be hitting yourself or cursing out the keyboard/controller when you do or don't switch when you did or didn't want to. Or super jump by accident because you're so used to mashing the buttons.

Honorable mention for easy goes to Mr. N, because he's easy to pick up on how to play after losing to a good Mr. N player once(Or a few times, depending on how fast you can learn). Same can be said for watching a good Mr. N player once(Or a few times). Now, while that's HOW, it's not going to teach someone the finer tined reaction times or angles. Still, Mr. N is another easy character to play, but it's best to get crushed by a good Mr N FIRST to see how he plays.

I'm honestly surprised to see not too many doctor shouls players posted here. I honestly think she is the easiest. her two angle kick can throw off opponents. simplu ump full hight, tap kick, and tap kick again once you get close to your opponent. they will either get scared and back away, or you will catch a headshot. if they try to jump, they will get pinned by the multi-angle. perfect timing is the key to the doctor.

as for the hardest, I would honestly say s.kill would be high because he has to teleport twice before he can even make a kick. the baz is also pretty tricky to play even with his long range full screen demolisher. it can be tricky to learn exactly when to use it. wait too long, and you will be counter-kicked, too early and you will fall short. I have been kicked out of it after the latest patch.

kick is the easiest and uncle sensei is probably the hardest one to master

Easiest by far is kick, while the hardest one to master is S-Kill. Like, seriously, I can't wrap my head around him, the teleporting throws me off, personally
