    "Snipers on Frog Isle are FUN to play against" -> Said no one.

    Also fun to get farmed by a Talus and the game after have a cheating Viktor.

    As of Edit, I'm on a 7 game loss streak thanks to dumb $#!+ like this

    Tech support thinks it's my new laptop's specs which are the problem, which doesn't make much sense since the game runs when the internet's off and it's better than my old one.

    😕



  • @Dusklicious Just imagine the people who just doesn't even bother, give up, trow and realize they can get away with it mostly on Qualifying / no rank just to screw others

    I've had those before... 😒

    Yet another match where I obviously carry yet the rest of my team lets me down. I reported the Jenos and the Talus. Not only because they fed, but because they were also insanely toxic to me and the Vivian when we CARRIED them. And that was after the Viv was HELPING THE JENOS UNDERSTAND THE BASICS YOU SHOULD KNOW BEFORE EVEN GETTING INTO RANKED. Ash was okay and the Vivian was decent enough to queue with (we were duoed), but both of the other two were terrible and honestly it is a little hard to believe they weren't playing badly on purpose.

    Also the Khan on the other team inted in a couple of our games when they were on our team (They were the Ying in the match where we WON playing solo tank and they blamed my queue partner for it being duo tank even if it was actually the Vik's fault with no question about it from me, and we got them on our team a couple of times after) and frankly still didn't do all that well here at all considering it was essentially a 3.5v5 game and they were duoed with the Damba who was probably the best player on their whole team. Toxic and $#!+ at everything but support.

    This $#!+ is why I f***ing hate playing Ranked most of the time.


    Strix totally isn't a painfully annoying Andro counter, not at all. And neither is Tib (at least you can beat him when he doesn't have Q up, can't really do that with Strix).



  • @Dusklicious Sometimes I wonder if it would be THAT bad if ranked was "full party" restricted, on all ranks. Because people can simply just mess with other's effort and then reporting them knowing that its easier if they trashtalked on chat.

    Im going to be simple, last time i tried ranked (never moved from qualifiers) i was already going for a "give up" and throw mentality, all the while my team was FURIOUSLY flaming on a last pick low lvl zhin with guillotine, I was a raum who baned a couple meta picks like Io and Barik for starters so i simply went there, tried a bit, died, gave up and closed the game to test 2 things:

    1. Is reporting people easy?: Quite so, a champion selection and countdown of full trashtalking directed to the zhin + whatever they kept on during the match, i simply trew a lazy report on everyone on the match and i got 2 notification on separate times, so im sure the 2 randoms (whoever they were but surelly must have been teammates) who got "an action taken" was because they trashtalked. One day people are gonna realize its easier to abuse reporting if someone trashtalked.

    2. Does trowing also add to the ranked rewards count for, say, the gold chest?: It doesn't, the match registers but it doesn't count for rewards and challenges, you must literally be afk and endure the whole match so, if people afk on ranked, it must be because of the rewards or the 1 and 5 ranked challenges........besides being toxic in general.

    You're welcome to judge me, i don't mind.

    I was watching my son play some ranked matches and every game had something happen.

    • He has to click join like 10-20 times before it joins.
    • Riding with no horse and then can't do damage till he takes damage himself - cost him the game, twice.
    • One match he was in third person for a bit. Great job fixing that crap that isn't supposed to be there.
    • Lags/teleporting (Maeve)
    • Enemy Zhin was showing Counter up without the sword for like 20 seconds.
    • Trouble banning. Massive delays.

    What is wrong with this game???

    "Triple flank is not a bad idea" - Nobody with more than two functioning brain cells.

    NEVER go Triple Flank.jpg

    Lian was also bad too, and I was pocketing Moji so ofc she'd get good damage and a good KDA.


    And we have another completely uncarriable team here:

    One Barik God Can't Carry a Whole Team.jpg

    Torv and Seris were absolute inting garbage. Other two were OK but not really great either.



  • Is it me, or does the new forum look messier than the old one?



  • Additionally, are you fucking Kidding me?!

    Pepper was already stealing sprays and skins from Pip, and now there's some failed experiment named Salt?

    That was a bad matchup for Talus.

    Inara, Khan, Lex, and Drogoz are hard counters for Talus. Some people might say that Talus counters Drogoz because hitscan against flying dragon. Problem is, Drogoz just does way too much burst. I can salvo and kill Talus in one blow, or force him to teleport away, which is a waste of a cooldown. Inara is a time sink for Talus, Khan stuns him, and Lex shreds him. I could see why Talus struggled there. He really should not have been Talus to be honest.

    Though Jenos has no excuse.



  • I've only been playing to duo with my buddy when he needs one, and because my sister likes watching me play this game so I think "why the hell don't I learn some people like Drogoz/Imani/Evie while I'm at it?" I have a shitty time playing usually. Playing the champions I'm trying to learn, who actually take skill to play, against no skill hitscan champions. Playing against the no skill 5-support composition. While I'm on a team full of potatoes is just hard. This game has just not been fun for me lately, and it's saying something because while I was usually frustrated with the game, I was never this annoyed with it. It's literally this meta, this patch being way too long, and the players just being so ass it's unbelievable.

    At this point, I'm just going to say fuck it and only play Dauntless, unless my duo wants me. Got into an argument with my sister because she was talking about how this game makes me annoyed and toxic. Hmm... Meanwhile when I'm actually playing a game I enjoy, "ugh! You're playing Dauntless! How can you even enjoy it over Paladins?" I don't know, maybe because even when 2 players are bad in Dauntless, you can still carry them because it's against ai; take in mind, I'm not even godtier at Dauntless. Meanwhile on Paladins, you can't carry shit when you have 2 bad players on your team, or if you just have one bad player on your team.

    Also, my sister has lately been trying to find ways to literally blame me for losing every game. I lose even though I went 26-12 as Tiberius because my Lex fed 17-20 My team loses, even though I go 25-16 as Willo and Koga goes 28-17, just because a Tiberius fed 17-18 My duo as Androxus goes 23-12, and I go 17-9, but we lose due to a Lian going 13-21 Literally my fucking sister. "People are expecting you to hard carry as a dps as a top pick, so if you aren't able to carry them to a victory, you are the one at fault." Literally the lecture she gave me today. Yeah, she can fuck all the way off.

    Having to report my entire team every other game because they're all inting is fun.



  • Casual games, and why I hate it. At least I won these games, but it's just no skill champions that I have to go against. People like Talus, Koga, Viktor, etc. At least when I go against, and admittedly play, no skill champions in ranked, I get something out of it. I get nothing out of it in casuals. In casuals, I just get sweat and losses. The worst has got to be a toss up between the lone/duo dps getting pocketed by Io, Corvus, Jenos, and/or Torvald, or the 5 support composition. Neither of them require more than 5 braincells, and they are cancer to go against. You have to be ranked tiers above them, like diamond versus silver, to counter those compositions. I'd rather fight triple tank thank the dps pocket comp or the 5 support comp.

    The only silver lining in these handpicked games is that I at least one. I would post the Evie loss game, but I at least lost against champions that require skill. Like a console Sha Lin and a console Maeve.

  • @HeartQueen if your using a speed build drogoz cant even hit you with anything.

    SOOO f***ing tired of ALL this f***ing throwing. EVERY. OTHER. GAME. I get at least 1 thrower on my team and I'm so f***ing over it. I've reported twenty f***ing people in he past couple of days and only ONE had action taken against them. ONE thrower out of TWENTY.

    I've said this plenty of times before but I really don't think Evil Mojo even remotely takes this issue seriously. F*** I just went through a game where I had a Lex inting and saying it was everyone else's fault and accusing us of being bots, and then the next match I was pretty much FORCED to dodge because we were going to have no support. The kind of toxic f*** that hovers supports and then picks a DPS. Now THOSE people deserve a terrible fate to befall their idiotic, toxic, $#!+headed @$$es.

    And by the way I get these people all the time. And yet, only ONE has had action taken against them. ONE.

    What is wrong with the people that play this game to where this is a problem so rarely brought up? The Paladins community is absurdly toxic for its size, but yet that's an issue that's never brought up, addressed, anything. Yet again some of the most popular people in the community are also in some cases some of the most toxic.



  • I am done with the game for now. 4 supports is a viable play style and it just ruined the game. The strats and fun of the game habe just gone down hill since the caut nerfs. I have played this game through allot of crap but now i am just moving on. Maybe a patch in the future xan bring me back.

    Frankly I'm thinking of taking a hiatus from this game and playing TF2 instead because I'm tired of the toxicity in this game myself. It's so bad.

    The dps with 3 support and a Torvald pocket or the 5 support meta has got to be the most braindead shit in this meta that actually works. Before, 5 support was just a meme that 8/10 didn't work. A competent team would just max out cauterize and it'll be gg from there. Nowadays, everyone can get caut 3, but the 5 support comp can just brute force heal through it.

    A dps with 3 supports and a Torvald pocket is just not fun. Torvald as a pocket and bubble bot is a bad design.



  • @HeartQueen One thing is for sure, with all the matches, i would say 75% have two healers and probably 35% of my matches have 3 or more healers on one team... Some times there are 5 or 6 healers in a match between two teams.

    Probably going to eventually end in a BIG ASS nerf to healers. Since i dont think they will revert caut changes its pretty much nerf healing values across the board.
