    @Dusklicious Remember to remove "this update hotfix is awful".


  • PC

    I may be very anxiously awaiting the PTS to come up, but the attacks I see directed at Evil Mojo over the fact they haven't released it yet are completely ridiculous. Even AFTER they've said it will be up any hour now.

    Telling you, toxicity is way more of the problem when it comes to some of the issues this game has than COVID or anything Evil Mojo is doing.

  • I spend all day grinding moji up to 30, and it was a horrible...

    • BORING

    • No ability to deal with anything a flank should deal with.

    • Almost a pointless champ after the point is won

    • Stupid sustain with massive damage

    • Its like playing Vivian

    Every thing about this champ is crappy, her mechanics are total garbage and while i can find a way to play her its as a damage dealer that needs a pocket or a tank next to her so she can just spam !!!

    • I have champs that i suck with but this is the first champ that i just outright cannot stand and i will probably never play her again unless they do a major rework.

  • The past couple of days were horrible in Paladins...the matches were one of these two extremes:
    either would there be bots, sometimes multiple, or I would play against a stack of 3 or more GMs in a call together. Nothing in between...I don't mind playing GMs, but if they're always in a party of 3 or more, I can play as well as I physically can, I won't win....

    I mean, Randomnoobtv put Atlas at A tier and Raum 2 tiers belo

    Vex30 put Atlas 2 tiers below Raum at the same time. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xujHtplc96I&list=PLr9BXg1AbOzzOCfluC1fMjrp5vvSOP2UQ&index=13

    Pro tier lists are about the potential of a champion, how good is Atlas at Diamond with the aim and skill of Randomnoob (and Atlas profits more from perfect aim than lets say Terminus or Fernando). Io is btw. very low tier at Vex30 list, I play her from start and she was never that bad. It sometimes strange but there are probably tierlists from content creators who are not pro-players. Kami never makes tierlists unfortunately.

  • @HeartQueen About Skye, what is a 5s cooldown reduction going to do when hidden has a cooldown of 15s? It's not a CD reset so I don't see how the card matters, Shadow Affinity is a totally garbage card despite the high pickrate Jay Flare told me it had, especially because of how she has many other better cards.
    And what you said about Gold players not being comparable to that of masters, this is more of a half truth. And I wasn't really saying that all gold players are comparable to master rank players. Doesn't mean NONE of the Gold rank players can't be as good as the ones in masters and there are tons of lvl 600+ players that are in gold because of matchmaking and many of them almost never play in stacks. With how broken matchmaking is in paladins, You will never hit Grandmaster no matter how good you are if you play solo almost all the time. My statement about this, only really applied to the enemy players I went up against in the match I sent you. But yea, "most" Gold rank players are DEFINITELY not comparable to that of GMs. https://paladins-tracker.de/match/999567978
    Look at the people I played with in this match. The corvus I played with healed for 180k using dark gifts( which is not considered his main heal talent) and he is in gold rank and is also kinda new to the game. He is a godly Corvus player but not as good with other champs which makes sense since he is new although his Corvus at that time was only lvl 4. Then there was also that annoying Dredge player that did a crazy whooping 175k dmg who is also a low gold player(also yes I played Skye again using Preparation with amazing results). Lower Elos shouldn't be underestimated and they don't actually define how good a player actually is. There is only one infamous player(from SEA server) that I know who reached Grandmasters and he barely ever played in a stack( he does play duos more often now), he mostly got that far by playing Ying Resonance as a solo support in more than 50% of his games, y'know her "worst" talent.
    I totally agree on what you said about pro tier lists being total bs. If you still think that Preparation is bad, then I suggest you try it on yourself with my builds or make one of your own. Just make sure to always have Decrepify 3+ in all Prepraration loadouts.

  • @SNIper-poTAto Keep trying to hype up bad talents, you'll only make the quality of ranked even worse.

    Most Ying players do not have the fucking game sense to make Resonance work. Hence why most of them have piss poor healing and damage. I've had a lot of time on this game, and I've run into like 7 good Resonance Ying players. Take in mind 3 of those 7 preferred playing Life Exchange as a solo support in most cases. I've even played Resonance Ying a few times myself because it made sense for the composition (a Bomb King and Terminus on the enemy team, I'd be a fool not to go Resonance). Yet it's a bad talent for low elo because they lack the game sense to make it work. Take in mind, I think Resonance can work in certain situations, I just think a lot of people lack the knowledge to know which situations they work in and how to make it work outside of those situations.

    I'll always think it's bad. I just see no benefit. It's Chronos and a good loadout for Skye, but as a talent. I hate every talent that requires an elimination or kill to make it work, which is why I'm not a fan of Rogue's Gambit Maeve. Elimination or kill resetting cooldowns should be a card, not a talent.

    Personally, if I could give Skye a slight rework in the realm of now, here's what I would do. Keep debilitate and Smoke and Dagger the same, and replace preparation with a reworked surprise attack. Reworked surprise attack would be that that hidden's cooldown is reduced by 5 seconds (stacks with the card), and your bonus shot deals 500 damage on your first shot out of hidden, but hidden lasts 5 seconds shorter (only lasts 2.5 seconds at base with that talent). It's a sort of give and take. This promotes a more aggressive flank style, and you aren't required to have a kill to get it.

    Definitely glad I did NOT buy the BP this time around. The skins are so awful... The best one is Strix's and even then some of his voicelines get pretty annoying. Nothing like Sun-Kissed Cassie annoying, though.

    Darkness and Dragons is definitely in the bottom 3 when it comes to battlepasses. 😒

    Though I guess next patch's BP is probably the best BP so far even if I don't really play the characters getting skins. The one I play most is Inara and even then she's my second least played frontline because I find her kind of boring.

  • @Dusklicious I hate all the new BP skins coming out. Not even going to bother which is good. I can just play the game without having to worry about grinding that thing out.

    I might have gotten it if they didn't spam the recolors, I guess ill see maybe the voice lines will be enough to drag me in like Amerikhan, i hate the skin but love the voice pack.

  • PC

    So tired of all this throwing. Get a solo heal grip Jenos one game, and then another I get teammates who just rush in and die. My winrates have been significantly worse than usual yet I am performing better than ever... 😒

  • @Dusklicious I played solo heal grip jenos and got a 100k healing. But i did have a healing loadout.

  • 4 healers
    team gets no cauterize

    then argue with me as to why they should not buy it.

    100k is not all that much in longer matches. This one got 70k in a 17 minute match...

  • @Dusklicious It not like the talent selection gives any extra healing. So its really just the loadout you pick with jenos that matters.

    And this one ran no healing in his loadout either. It was a full-on grip build.

    And he had the audacity to blame other people for the fact we lost.

  • @Dusklicious Yea thats no good. I have come to the conclusion that even when im playing second healer damage jenos i just pick my normal healing loadout with star .... The grip legendary really keeps the flanks off you so i would say its a good pick against the likes of Andro Evie. But you have to have reduction on heal and sustain on heal and you have to get chronos if your going to play Jenos.

    His heals are just not bursty enough so you need them pretty often to do well as a healer.

  • PC

    A player who I KNOW is really good at the game just throws the first rounds and has the audacity to whine to ME because THEY played like they had no concept of what awareness is. Also they rushed Haven. HAVEN FFS.

    Lex is STILL bad. Though not the worst character anymore, he's still hot trash. Koa's not as great as I thought either even if he still seems solid, I don't think he's top 5 in the game like I originally thought he'd be. Also not the second best tank in the game either. I'd say he's the fourth best tank overall, second best off.

  • Current Dragon BP is really amazing. Cool skins and champs, theme and diamond chest (even in premium levels).
    Now I saw the new one in PTS and its awful. I don't like the skins and theme but besides that I was thinking to grind and buy it for other content but then... boy.....I saw that you remove AGAIN the diamond chest. So how exactly u reward the F2P players when you don't reward even people who buy the BP? It's so frustrating that your new BP are become just levels with golds, boosters, more boosters and more useless battle chests with no new content. How do you want to sell it? You continue to duplicate skins in "new" chests with new names and recolored them instead to give a value for the current chests. Now I have at least 30 BP chests and you ask from me to buy with a gold uncommon skins for the new champs instead adding this content in that chests. Why you don't add the new content in that chests? If you think someone will grind so much time just for a few crystals and one gold chest full with chibi sprays you are really wrong. Do you know how frustrating is to play so much and in the end to "win" another chibi spray?????? And what about old players that spend a ton of hours and money in your game? You know that some people still have diamond chests or gifts that can't open because no new content is added there. All you add is another BOOSTERS to boost you to win another BOOSTER. You promise you will add before year ago and nothing. How you will compensate these people? Instead spending time to recolor skins try to make more quality skins and content. quality over quantity!!! The game still crash, ton of bugs, no rewards and good matchmaking for competitive players, no rewards like before for f2p players, no new maps, modes and events. All you do is one awful low value BP? This time I won't buy it and play it. I will be back at the autumn and hope this game will still alive and offers me some good content and bug free game. Till then Ill keep my crystals and won't spend even a penny for your game. The main problem is that your game becomes more frustrating than FUN like it was before. A lot of good people leave your team and maybe you don't have proper strategy and ideas how to develop that game or maybe you don't have enough resources I dont know and I don't wanna know. But the stats with decreasing players is screaming that you should make something big to save that game. Wish you all the best with that.

  • @fedushev They make the battle pass to keep people playing. If you want to send the message that you are not happy with it. Dont play the game and maybe they will make the next pass more inviting. I agree that this pass is not very good.

  • @Shadowpuppy thats what I said I won't buy and play it. Cause I'm not feeling interested and happy. I have around 1200 crystals which I was saved for the new one but probably I'll keep them for the next one. And boy...I forget to mention the dumbest challenges from the last one - Kill Furia x times with Khan and etc... these 2 was really frustrating and time consuming. Hope they didn't include something similar this time cause i'm not sure who will chase it for a few more XP or some title. This wasn't challenging and motivating but just time consuming, frustrating, annoying and luck related.
