I will leave my seal on you!
I suppose they are. I remember Ultra David on commentary in a major mentioning that Darkseid has the lowest DEF in the game but the highest HP in the game as well, and he said that in reference to Darkseid's viability in the competitive meta, so I guess it does imply, but to a lesser degree in comparison to frames and tech.I actually made a comparison chart of all the stats, and there's a couple characters with weirdly badly skewed stats? Grodd and GL are the ones I remember offhand, but does this matter at all? Like I get that competitively the stats are what they are, but does this mean anything in terms of optimal playstyle or can it be mostly disregarded because frames and tech are more important?
Edit: Manta and Starfire are also kinda wack.
