    Next patch though? She's looking low tier to me...

    This is literally 5% heal nerf. She will be fine.

    I misread it at first probably. Thought it was more than just that much. In that case, she's probably fine, but not necessarily looking good. She's going to still end up outclassed by the main four options next patch in pretty much every way possible, aside from having a little bit more healing. I'll edit my PTS list when I don't have to deal with it not working right for me.

    Nonetheless, you can't be saying that this nerf was in any way necessary or a good idea. A nerf to a mid tier support that didn't need any nerf whatsoever. Some outrage is deserved at that very idea, considering they didn't buff a lower down character instead (Atlas or Lex maybe?), or even nerf Jenos a little bit instead.



  • @Dusklicious maybe they just wanted to avoid the 420 joke, lol

    A joke that's funny for a joke that's just frustrating, in my eyes, isn't necessarily the best trade.

    I mean, last 4 months of balancing didn't make much sense to me, so I am not surprised they did this

    I mean in the same patch they didn't really buff Seris at all by trying to say "oh she's a bridge support, she's supposed to suck" and did what amounted to nothing to BK and Maeve who are both going to be top tier for sure, it seems like.

    I honestly think 3.1 helped the game overall, but 3.2 looks like a bad patch, with a few good changes put in, but still really bad. Not just for the balancing either... Only good skin is Raum's, and even then the VP is bland. Didn't like Tib's that much, found Ying's not that great, and HATED Maeve's... Seriously, though, the Maeve skin is trash.

    If they just buff Atlas in 3.3 and do nothing else at all that they should be doing, it will already probably be better than this next patch... After all, I hate sounding like a broken record, but Atlas is a bottom tier tank that's absolutely terrible right now... Vex tiering him A+ really made him look dumb just saying.



  • HEY ZHIN! IF YOU WANT A POCKET THEN JENOS DUO UP! OH WAIT NO ONE CAN FUCKING STAND YOU!
    (Welcome to Competitive)



  • Haven't even touched Paladins since Midweek February.



  • Here's a list of things you can do that won't make me rage in rank!

    1. stop picking Lex/Seris/Mal'Damba: These three have the lowest winrates in their respective class, and they aren't good at all. Mal'Damba especially on console where he gets below 40% winrates in certain ranks. Please stop people!

    2. stop going Seris, Solar Blessing Furia, and Ying: The problem with these 3 is that they only heal 1 tank, the point tank. And that point tank has to carry, which is impossible if they're Inara, unless the team drafts something like Talus/Zhin/Barik on the same team and you go cripple.

    3. Raum: Raum is a good tank in certain drafts. However, I can't imagine seeing Grover/Tyra/Khan on the enemy team and thinking "It's a good day to play some Raum!" "Time to bring out the Raum monster!" Like dude... Idiots keep picking Raum in bad matchups and going 4-18 because the community talks about how OP he is.

    4. bottom pick no champions: this is a guy at the bottom that doesn't have all the champions. "Can I Viktor?" "Sure I'll trade, do you have Furia?" "No." "... Do you have Grover?" "No." "... (sigh) I guess I'll have to take Seris. Why did you queue up for rank if you didn't have all the champions?" "You're being toxic because I don't have supports. I dps main, I don't need to support. Clearly you do because you have nothing to trade. It's not about using the support, it's about being able to trade in a draft. I have to settle for Seris because you don't have Io, Furia, or Grover, which are solid supports." Or the people who only have Ruckus and Ash, and when you call them out, "you're being toxic because I don't have tanks. Why is rank so toxic?" People, if you don't have all champions, or at least all the B tier and up champions, why are you in rank? It's not toxic to ask this question.

    WHY AM I NOT WORKING ON MY BARIK GUIDE FOR NEXT PATCH F***ING DAMMIT.

    Also: I'm more empathetic about this than some people, but please, for f***s sake, don't pick low/bottom tier characters in any decent ELO ranked games... No Atlas, No Lex, No Willo, No Seris... They are simply unacceptable when you get to Diamond+... Even Makoa falls into that category... If you feel like Picking Koa/Atlas, I'll tell you to just pick Raum/Nando/Khan instead. Heck, I'd say pick RUCKUS before either of them, and that says a lot considering he's hardly a viable, let alone actually decent pick.



  • They nerfed damage grohk. They nerfed freaking damage grohk. They reduced shock pulse range from 50 to 40. wtf.

    @HeartQueen
    You just dissed picking Seris 3 times in a row.
    Keep up the great work.



  • @HeartQueen Just allow trades before you pick.. Can you save me viktor... sure trade drafting spot... The guy thats wantz viktor picks him and i know i can pick what i want when its my turn.

    That would work (I like that idea) but you know they would create a new bug where it swapped a player with the enemy team instead.

    I swear every time I try to play Barik now I get braindead teammates I can't carry, against at least 2 Masters or higher.

    Or I get the most useless Zhin and a Tyra running f***ing Hunting Party against two tanks.

    Grohk is dead next patch just saying. Almost looking as bad as Lex. F*** Atlas is better than 3.2 Grohk.



  • @Dusklicious They increased his healing to 300 so with the talent it will be 360 a second. Seems like it might be viable.

    First off, that's actually a quite massive decrease from his current 420/s healing and 546/s with the totem talent. Second, to get similar healing by stacking takes a whole 6 seconds longer. It also has CC immunity that is going to be out next patch.

    Trust me, I played it on PTS. It's garbage. I'd say Seris is miles better than this.



  • @Dusklicious On PTS it was 250 healing per second and 300 with the talent...

    They buffed it so 300 base and 360 for the talent, so two of the three totum's is 720 a second and still have one sitting in reserve. I dont know if its going to be great but i do think he will be a better as a healer over all. But we will have to see how it works on live as PTS is always non existent match making, that makes everything feel bad.

    Still have to put two out to get that healing. Biggest problem isn't necessarily the healing itself its how long it takes to set it up... 20 whole seconds cooldown for that healing (current totem as 14), and it can easily be taken down with no problem by any blaster with Dozer. I definitely disagree on him being better. Grohk right now is actually not too bad as long as you know what you're doing, and the CC immunity is useful in a lot of situations (the CC immunity the talent won't have).

    Unreal. When I have time to play I can't. You guys are cutting your own throats. Took 10 minutes to get this far. Never got anywhere.

    On to Overwatch then.

    Got to love when people complain about toxicity (that definitely exists) while also being toxic themselves. Kami's comments sections are becoming a bit more toxic...

    Almost sounds like too many people watch the some of the more toxic streamers... 🤔
