  • Can confirm, Mortal Reach got buffed (23min match):

    SC is still better



  • @TTraw Which ones better?

    Not sure entirely whether to be happy or upset about this, but I was wrong about the Ash changes being a net nerf. The ability to cancel RMB comes in handy WAY more often than you might think. Plus it doesn't have an animation, the cancel is instant.

    What is that frame potzer has? Never seen it before. Also he should be reported... This patch is working pretty good for me so far. Spray sound is back, Siren's call spray works again. Seems the damage feedback is improved. Fail: Two other sprays not working that were before and the scope sensitivity still won't go above 0.

    That is the Season 1 bronze frame.

    Shield Nando may yet be better than I give it credit for. Still has the issue of locking yourself out of doing any damage, but the playstyle can give you absurd amounts of sustain that nobody will counter thanks to the fact that Wrecker is underpowered as f*** right now. But when Wrecker gets buffed and people actually pick it up, ehh... It may need to be reworked in some way to be useful.

    Though I will still say for now it isn't really the greatest competitive option, thanks to 2 things:

    • Barik/Inara/Term all end up being better options still (where Term essentially ends up BEING a better Aegis Nando in a sense)
    • Nobody thinks of Nando as a point tank.

    Also really enjoying Io Main's Salty Tears. 😋 😎 Hopefully they'll put some extra "wah my main isn't broken anymore so she sucks" in. It's the best part.

    Apparently the region switching rumors are true.

    2nd match last night:

    3rd match:

    I did not change my region.



  • So far, I'm liking this battlepass. The skins are a breath of fresh air from Thunder Brush's vanity projects. Especially after that failure of an Egyptian battlepass and the Scalie battlepass.

    WARNING! RANT INCOMING! SKIP TO BIG LETTERS LIKE THIS IF YOU DON'T CARE

    Okay, could they not have gotten inspiration such as this for Maeve?

    bastet maeve potential.jpg

    Normal face, but she has a cat head piece and a tail. Then gotten an Egyptian hair style with black hair. Instead they went full furry. How they managed to fuck up an Egyptian Ying is beyond me. Egyptian Ying looked orange and tacky. We couldn't gotten Io, Kinessa, and Mal'Damba skins such as these:

    egyptian io.jpg

    egyptian Kinessa and Mal.jpg

    Instead we got Snookie cosplaying as an Egyptian woman (Ying) and a full on furry (Maeve).

    OKAY. RANT OVER NOW. BACK TO NORMAL

    After those failures, this beautiful battlepass is a breath of fresh air. I like it. The colors are beautiful, and I love the effects. Now Imani's face could be better. Now idea why they didn't keep her original face and just add freckles. The skin would've looked way better if they had done that. However, the outfit and the hair looks great. I love her color scheme.

    Mortal Reach's heal bonus increased from 10% to 17%.

    Last night the game says it's 10% - they forgot to update the description?

    Pretty sure that's what happened. I can notice the difference from PTS in-game when receiving the heals. Forgot to mention Talus getting a slight fire rate nerf, but the Caut buff more than cancels that out... 😒

    Only played 3 matches last night - all supports on either team were IO, Furia, Corvus. I did play around with Seris in the shooting range prior to actual matches and was able to keep Fernando alive for a decent amount of time without chronos. I had no chance to do that in the prior versions of S3.

    What caut buff? % still shows the same or is that wrong too. I only saw a reduction in credits.

    That's a buff. It makes it take a total of 300 credits less to max. You can also get Caut and Nimble and still have 50 credits left...

    Frankly it's a disaster of a buff as well that doesn't even fix the problem it was meant to solve, but just causes more problems.


  • PC

    @Dusklicious As long as the % is the same. I'm OK with the credit reduction. It makes the true skill of the players come out sooner.

    It also makes a Vik/Viv/Talus/Moji able to get Caut online even sooner. I played with a pro player in ranked and they banned Corvus and Jenos out, which in a way confirms to me that we may not be in a sustain meta. No, we're in a pocket meta. It's a disaster of a change IMHO that I'd rather have reverted even if that means sustain meta will still be a thing. Rather that than ban out two healers in draft and allow snipers through.


  • PC

    @Dusklicious Anyone doing their job well will be able to get higher levels of caut sooner. I don't see a problem in that aspect.

    The pocketing seems unrelated to the caut change. Pocketing was already there with Jenos. Corvus just added another. It was obvious prior to this update - even in casual matches.

    It was already there, yes, but it's going to be even more pronounced with how the caut change makes hitscans with fast fire rates who can consistently refresh the caut (who pretty much all pair well with pocket healers) better and also with how it negatively affects burst heal at the same time. All that without a single nerf of the pocket supports ability to pocket an ally. Corvus before the ult and caut buff was already a pretty solid support, but now he might just be a top 3 support. Jenos was mid-tier before this patch and now he might even be top 3. And the only reason that 3 isn't a 2 is because of Io.

    Really hoping we don't get a pocket meta, because that's probably going to be a lot worse than sustain meta was. One or two pocketed DPSes on every team tearing everyone else to shreds.

    What is that purple cloud? Happened just once. Lian or the horse let one rip?

    @Dusklicious
    Only had time for one match last night (Lian). My damage is low cause I had to help out the Andro flanking (excuses) - Lian isn't my first choice for flank damage but it worked out. Anyway, I honestly feel the caut credit change didn't effect my item choices, accumulation rate or change the outcome of the match. This was 16 minutes and I earned 4300 credits (Only Ying had more credits) - I would have had caut 3 by EOM with or without the credit change.

    lian.jpg

    As a counter argument to your caut complaint. Willow's Deadzone is very oppressive at a whopping 100% for 5s anti heal and no credits needed. Allowing the enemy to achieve higher levels of caut sooner is fair against that. I know not every match has a Willo, just making a case.

    Maybe the Corvus pocket can be made more acceptable if the mark range is nerfed. Not to Jenos levels but something not so ridiculous. I also don't like how it automatically moves to the nearest ally if the marked ally dies - maybe that should be removed. Should he be able to provide 25% life rip? Probably not.
