    You guys are getting wins?

    Next patch is actually a nerf for Ash. Brawl and Siege Engine won't proc on deployables or shields anymore. But she's already really strong as is on Live. She'd be kind of broken if they didn't make that change.

    Atlas looks OK and Koa is going to be pretty strong from what I can tell.

    I dont run these anyways. I'm so used to ash older builds that I'm too lazy to adapt my playstyle to these cards. Same for makoa, I dont give a damn about that half-shell playstyle that I saw before I stopped playing, at least I would try ash new cards but I refuse to run shield koa. Prety much why I never go architectonics barik, I now its probably better but not my style. Its better to run something that you are comfortable and enjoy than the most op build in my experience.

    I went Archi in half of my games when Tinkerin was meta, never really liked playing Tink all that much. Don't really play Fortify even now that it's not bad anymore either.



  • Cool, everybody have pick preferences 😉

    I mean I still try to play something that doesn't really work like Memesplitter Raum or Live Atlas but generally pick what I prefer playing while still trying to optimize it. 🙂


    Have a 60%WR with Barik this season in Ranked. 😛 KDA's probably better than the winrate to be honest.

  • Off tanks are still great, at least the good ones are.

    The Seris was actually good. I hardly see good Seris players, so let me celebrate! Inara was ass though. She would literally wall us off and trap us. Like when Seris was about to rotate to Tiberius to escape Androxus, Inara put a wall between them. When I was about to come back after I killed Viktor, she walled me off and left me to die to Io and Jenos. She made that match longer than it needed to be.

    Edit: Believe it or not, that Inara was diamond III and top pick. No one traded, so she willingly went Inara. I understand first picking Inara to secure a good tank, but at least be good with her.

    Ash/Raum/Khan are still very good on live the rest are kind of meh at best. Next patch seems like Khan will be out and Koa will be in.

    Also, how hard can it possibly be to be good with Inara? She's my second least played tank and heck I can play her decently enough. Literally the only part of her kit that isn't basic as f*** is her wall...



  • @Dusklicious
    Inara is easy to play.
    Atlas is the hardest

    Iv been playing Nade Viktor as of late and now that im getting the hang of it. I have to say its pretty strong when used to farm ult. Today i ulted at 50% point capture on the first round. It was pretty silly how fast i got it up with those nades.

    Two ults a round or more and still have 60 % for the next round... Plus its allot of fun

    Why pick shrapnel over cardio? Like your loadout has no sustain and i don't see much value from the extra radius of it. Also I wanna know whats the main use of "hot potato"? I feel like flank food when playing a talent on vik that isn't burst mode.

    Yep pretty much. I would say the order from easiest to hardest tank-wise (not really counting Torv because he's the only one I have little to no experience with) is probably something like this:

    1. Inara
    2. Ash
    3. Raum
    4. Barik
    5. Fernando
    6. Terminus
    7. Khan
    8. Makoa
    9. Ruckus
    10. Atlas


  • @SNIper-poTAto hot potato. makes cooking nades much faster so you can get them out quickly to deal with flanks.

    Cardio is horrible... The extra radus makes hitting 3 or 4 people pretty easy..

    3 people is 12% ult followed by another 12%

    24% ultimate charge in a couple of seconds. You do not need sustain to play viktor. You need good position.

    The extra range allows you to check areas... If i throw a nade in a room and it hits no one.... there is no one in that room.

    Hot potato is needed to use it more reactive... cook a nade and throw it on the ground around you and engage the flank.

    Tanks difficulty is hard to measure since there are tanks that hard mechanically like ruckus and then other tanks that are require good decision making and game knowledge like terminus. There are other tanks like makoa and atlas that are difficult in both. If I make a list it would be similar to dusklicious one, just some small changes.

    That's true though. Tanks like Ruckus require a skillset almost more similar to a DPS skillset than a tank skillset, whereas you have even other off-tanks like Fernando that although playing very aggressively still require a tank's skillset (Was about to say Ash but honestly, she's pretty easy).

    Though I feel like a few placements are to me pretty cemented in my mind. Koa and Ruckus could probably be swapped (simply because it's hard to consistently hit Makoa hooks), Raum and Barik maybe (though in Raum's case the difficult part of him is cooldown management and dealing with CC and the rest is pretty easy), and there's probably a few others also.

    @Dusklicious Raum thing is limit testing in my opinion. Characters that soak damage like him and run people down is just experience. You just go ro play some normal games, run down enemy backlane and either feed your ass or carry the game, thats sadly the way you get better at characters like him. You will start noticing what you can/cant do and when then apply it. When you apply it correctly you notice thay you will carry more than feed. Pretty much why I cant play raum, I dont have enough games on him.

    About makoa and ruckus, I feel like makoa and atlas are similar in terms on difficulty...and ruckus... is in a weird spot because that champ is probably for onetricks. I think his problem is not only as you said "a tank with dps mechanics" , to master him you probably need to do something similar to what I said about raum above but with a more tricky playstyle because ruckus is probably the less straightforward character in the game. Dont really know the order but these 3 are the hardest in my opinion.



  • It was an esport match. I did what Seris can do 🙂
