August Rage Thread



  • I was thinking that this time we will have normal and not annoying AF challenges in the BP but i was wrong...
    why the hell someone will want to make 25!!!! TWENTY FIVE kills with inara's ult? an ultimate that takes like two seconds to wind up and only does 500 damage? Great job, send regards to the guy that decided to put this. Even in bot match you will have always someone to steal the kill. It will be less annoying if u want from us to kill the enemy after 3seconds for example after the ult or to want this but 5 or 10 times max. For at least 3rd time i Will say that if you want someone to complete all your challenges my dear Evil Mojo at least give them better reward in the end!!! Not that useless titles.

    Don't you just love it when you're solo tanking with a solo healer that goes for frags instead of healing you? You still get top damage while dying several times waiting on heals you get 4 times in a whole game. Of course to add on top of that you have the toxic Andro spamming need healing and feeding.

    Also Steam being down is nice. Time to just stew about how outraged I am about Rogue Company being an Epic timed exclusive on PC. 😡 Hi-Rez isn't just putting their own spin on other titles anymore, they're now putting their own spin on 2K's greed!

    Why the f*** do I have to deal with throwers every 3-ish games? So sick of it. This isn't just a this patch thing, this is a every patch since 3.1 thing.

    Also the toxicity has gotten to the point where calling it absurd is a complement. 😡

    Well, most likely people who get crashed and can't come back or are too fed up to do it. I get a crash every 4~5 matches and sometimes several times a match. There's been times when i play with a friend and they crash but when they attempt log back they're in the lobby while there's a bot playing in the match with me. Frustrating, i tell you.

    Frog Isle is a well-designed map. 🙃 Totally doesn't need a redesign.


  • PC

    @Dusklicious

    It's got issues... I'm usually Tiberius on this map and the friggin leap doesn't leap 50% of the time and I almost always get stuck on something. It comes up way too often in the rotation - it's not even close to random. Tired of the snipers too. Last one was double sniper and half the team just rage quit.

    The map should be renamed to Camper Isle.


  • PC

    @Vaporized It desperately needs another flank route that actually works for more than just Andro and Maeve.


  • PC

    @Dusklicious Wouldn't hurt but the other issues need to be fixed too.



  • What do you think about this bounties? Honestly it's not perfect at all...I prefer some kind of free skins like before (mixer awards or VIP store or 30 challenges for diamond chest) because there I am able to choose the skin i don't have and I like. Or at least to win some skin in first place. Now they put out I believe 4th skin which I have.
    So basically I can't win free skin even I have 33+ bounty points already. The other problem is the timing and the quantity. For example when some users have one or two skins they still collect points and after one or two days they instant unlock the new skin which they don't have and it's not fear for the new players or people that can't sit in paladins 24/7 because they join and see the "sold out" title. So for me it's not so well balanced.
    It's just really strange that format I think it can be better. For example if I have points but I owned one, or two skins in a row to have the possibility to roll out and exchange with other skin for example? Or to unlock something else... I don't think that this format now satisfies all players...


  • PC

    The Bounty System seems really, really pointless IMHO. If they want to give us more skins for cheaper (which honestly they already give us enough skins on the cheap), just lower crystal prices on particularly more expensive individual purchases and Diamond Chests. The Bounty skin on the other hand seems to usually just give out lower quality skins if you log in at just the right time with the right number of bounty tokens.

    Seems like a system that doesn't really serve a purpose.



  • Ahhh my rage post for the month. Ranking system (still) and the new bounty store.

    For the ranking system, I'm incredibly tired of being paired with ranks way below my own, or being put up against people way above my rank. As fun as a challenge is, it's not very fun to lose all my tp because my team plays like they're all much lower ranks than I am. I'm not asking for god like team mates, just team mates who are in my own rank.

    And for the bounty store, it's incredibly bugged. Sometimes prices will glitch and be way more expensive than what other players are having to pay, or you may just not earn any bounty tokens at all from daily quests.

    As a bonus, my main complaint for the moment is some characters are WAY worse than the majority and just are not worth using in the slightest unless you're just trying to have fun and don't care if you win or lose which can be frustrating to play with.


  • PC

    Toxic DPS players may be more irritating and also far more common, but bad tank players are bad too. 😒 In fact they bother me ALMOST AS MUCH, because bad tank players are very cringy to say the least to those of us who main the role. So over-aggressive when they shouldn't be, either hogging or ignoring point, and just generally playing the role so badly they end up being ult batteries instead of useful teammates...

    Also had one that whined about me when I was legit carrying while they kept feeding. Kind of hilarious to be honest.

    Another thing: Can we please buff Lex in a way that ACTUALLY MAKES A DIFFERENCE? Retribution is STILL a waste of an ability slot that does next to nothing useful, his RMB does horrible damage...


    So many toxic, incompetent, horrible teammates lately... 😒 It's like every other loss is just caused by throwing. Even GMs are doing it! I've actually seen GMs throw ranked games, several times. 😡 In fact I edited this post just after it happened again. And they wanted an Ash solo tank too.. Just nah.


  • PC

    @Dusklicious Toxic DPS incoming... WTF can't anyone on my team buy cauterize. Match should have been 15 minutes max.

  • So overall, casuals has been a lot better. Sure Corvus and Io are still in games, but I will say that it's mostly to do challenges instead of abusive 3+ stack compositions where they pocket one person. With that said, this is a rage thread, and I need to vent.

    PS_Messages_20200808_144545(1)_2_resized.jpg

    This was an 11 minute game. Io didn't heal a lick and Barik was intentionally afk/feeding. There was nothing we could do. I wish that Io players going Sacrifice for the challenge know that Io can still heal with that talent. Or that they can complete that challenge in training. It's so frustrating to get Io players who don't heal at all, due to them thinking that Sacrifice is the dps and flank Io talent. You can still heal for 1,000 per second! And nice afk as the only tank we have Barik. Great game.

    PS_Messages_20200808_144542_2_resized_1.jpg

    Also, it was a 13 minute game with great heals and we did win. But community... Can we please stop running those composition? Those pocket and toxic compositions. Let's stop this shit in 2021 please. No one likes going against them. They're only fun for the 3+ stack that runs this shit.


  • PC

    @HeartQueen Just played a casual match as Imani. I'm using Pyre Ball and it decides to stop dealing damage until I died. Had a bot support also. Same old here. Barik bot and IO bot in your second match - same old for you too.



  • I haven't been able to play Paladins Champions of the Realm since June 20th... This is bad.



  • @Vaporized The thing is, they are intentionally bots. It's not like they're crashing, they're just bad. That Io who didn't heal was just bad who didn't heal me. Barik intentionally left. That's what is frustrating.


  • PC

    IDK what the tib was doing... Ruckus completed the no item challenge.. People want to drag out matches or what?

    I really, really hate playing support (especially Corvus) with people who don't understand how to group... You always end up paying the price for their inability to play around you, and end up dying way more than you should to flanks. Especially when they don't pay attention to VBE at all. 😒

    Also last I checked Kinessa should not be able to one-shot a full health Viktor with Eagle Eye. Should leave the Vik with 100 health w/o Haven. But even after buying rank 1 Haven, it still one-shot (even though that should only do 1953 damage, which should leave the Vik with 247 health left).

    Imani is a playable champion of the Realm.

    @TTraw I don't have problems with Imani that often but when one occurs it's really messed up and sometimes costs me the match.
