Glad Dave chimes in bc we have played he match countless times early in the games life. I think darkseid will struggle vs those that know the mu. He is probably going to be good for a surprise pick and to catch people off guard. If u don’t know the mu then you will struggle.The results are as expected. Playing To Win and I have not played the Darkseid and Deadshot match in a very long time so I am not surprised that he started off slow but ended up winning 12 consecutive games as he began reacting to the teleport more consistently. I dropped Darkseid as a main character because of Playing To Win, who encouraged me to switch to Red Hood. I have seen much, much better results ever since.
I do not intend to beat a dead horse because I have already discussed my opinion on Darkseid on the most recent Player 1 Advantage podcast. The character is mid tier in this version of the game. I am certain he will be better, albeit not by much, in the following patch that will be released next week. If you have a good understanding of the game, you realize that Darkseid cannot possibly be top tier. As you stated yourself, a character with garbage normal attacks can simply not be a top tier character in this game.
