  • @Shadowpuppy ???

    Fam, on console, an aim assist Viktor completely fucks Androxus. He literally outranges Androxus and his grenade and ult goes around reversal. If you think that a Diamond 5 Androxus on console is going to do well against a grandmaster Viktor on console, then boy do I have a bridge to sell you. Even if you look at pro tournaments, the console Viktor players usually melt Androxus unless the Androxus really outplays them or they get the Viktor when they're low. It was especially made hard when he had a Strix next to him, and they were getting an Io pocket. So even if I were to theoretically outplay one of them, the other would just burst me down at the best case scenario. Worst case scenario, they both look at me and melt me down in 1 second.

    I guess I do have to practice with Androxus, but it was just a shock to me. I've never seen someone expect a bottom pick to try to carry a ranked game as a flank. Usually it's considered a throw pick for the last pick to go flank. Yet in the few games that I've had with masters and grandmasters, it was weirdly expected of me. I probably could just also go back to Buck and start learning to play him in high elo games. Buck counters Viktor, Androxus, and snipers, so that's a relief.

    When somebody else wants to ruin your main because they don't know how to play them be like: ☹

    Because clearly Barik should be the same as Inara and Term, and because clearly a short hurtbox is NEVER able to be used to your advantage... When I do it all the time...


    And now somebody has blamed me picking Barik for THEM throwing ranked. Well that's a report. A Lian that can't outdamage a Barik having to OT a sniper on Frog. I mean I'd actually say Lian is the bad pick if anything, ESPECIALLY INTO BURSTY COMPS. Lian is actually a bottom 5 damage right now, just because she can't take burst.

    @HeartQueen Huh because on PC Andro generally can just farm the Vik pretty easily. Granted on PC Andro is the best flank right now. On console I think it's probably Talus, but I don't know the console meta that well.



  • @HeartQueen if you can get viktor and strix to look at and watch for you as a flank you are doing your job. Outplay does not mean kill. You can outplay people without even shooting.

    It is clear to me that you have the knowlede of match ups, you juat need to open up your mind to how you can use that to win matched.

    Looking at a lot of these PPL tierlists on Guru makes me think the people who made them were high on something...

    Ruckus "the best off-tank in the game right now", Torvald and Bomb King in the same tier, Pip in S... Just what in the f*** am I even looking at...?

    The Ruckus claim is the one with the most validity and even then it's only plausibly close to true in terms of skill ceilings. Below Diamond, Ruckus is almost as bad as Torvald. Torvald is legit the worst champion in the whole game and BK is the best blaster in the game, they're nowhere even close, and Pip is worse than Grohk pretty much all the way below Diamond. In fact, almost EVERYONE I've seen justifiably considers Pip a THROW PICK.

    EDIT: Also atlas is "worth banning"... 😆 Atlas is only situationally good, and is pretty much always not worth picking before mid-draft, and even then he needs certain maps and to be against certain champs (one which I'll acknowledge is the ACTUAL best OT in the game right now). When Atlas isn't good, he's on par with Khan.

    Oh and I just have to add they think Damba is better than CORVUS. F*** it gets pretty delusional.

    I mean seriously these people are willing to say Ruckus is the best OT in the game, but yet Barik doesn't have enough sustain to compete? Barik sustains WAY BETTER THAN RUCKUS DOES!


  • PC

    Kind of unfortunate the Turtle never really made it into the meta. In fact, if anything, he managed to get worse in the meta. With Atlas and Fern both now being viable competitively thanks to their buffs, Koa is just being left further behind...

    I mean sure he'll get buffs but I'm not so sure if they'll really be enough to put him on the map. He got buffed SO MUCH last patch, but yet he ended up no better than before...

    Or... My team could have drafted better instead of looking for a scapegoat??? Unless you're delusional enough to think that a Diamond 5 could possibly outplay grand masters and masters. That's literally like having a Silver player try to dps against Gold and Platinum players. 9/10 it ends in failure due to lack of game sense and mechanical skill.

    These idiots knew their draft was fucked, so they looked for someone to scapegoat. Lian knowingly picked Lian against Ruckus and Barik, 2 shield tanks, and against Strix and Viktor. Lian kept dying as wasn't effective. Almost like Lian wasn't the right pick for the draft! Instead of admitting their screw up, they wanted to blame someone else. "I can't peek a Strix and Viktor as Lian." Well maybe Lian wasn't the right pick! But no, the draft could have been saved if last pick went Androxus!


  • PC

    Somehow Inara has one of my worst KDAs this season and the worst out of the entire frontline class INCLUDING TORVALD (though Torv, Ruckus, and Khan all have worst winrates)... Thanks to having throwing teammates every other time I try to play her in ranked... Doesn't help she's too boring for me to play in casuals. She also has my 6th worst out of EVERYONE...

    GM Viv with a team that's too heavy to carry? Feels. Bad. Man.

    FEELSBADMAN.jpg

    Not angry, just VERY disappointed my team couldn't win when I was carrying the $#!+ out of them. Though the fact I did almost as much damage as both DPSes COMBINED tells you something I think (they were kinda no good). Didn't help Talus blamed the Jenos for the fact he couldn't flank them.


    Also main heal Seris feels legitimately AWFUL to play. Soul Collector off-heal is the only way that's remotely tolerable and the only way that actually works in my experience.

    First time Qing a match in like a week... What do I get? Waited 2:45 for this shit.

    This post is deleted!


  • Imagine being bad with Corvus and Jenos. I just don't understand it. They are literally the easiest champions to play in the game, yet people are bad with them.

    Another thing I don't get is Vivian players getting their shit bashed in by Skye. I could understand if the Vivian was struggling with a Viktor or a Bomb King, but a fucking Skye? Your entire kit literally counters her!


  • PC

    First onslaught match in forever... Feels bad to lose against a bot Moji - either that or person crashed and didn't know how to pick the talent after.

  • @HeartQueen People just have noticed that if they stay shut and don't trashtalk on chat/mic, they can mostly get away with it. Last time i tried ranked, 2 players were furiously trashing a last pick zhin with guillotine, i reported them both because they never stoped trashtalking from the champ seleciton to the match and so and turns out i got 2 notifications the next day on 2 separate times.

    Also, apparently desserter by dodging doesn't affect ranked status so.........yeah, shit has already broke and melted the fucking fan


  • PC

    Can people NOT play solo damage support in Ranked? Just please for the sake of my SANITY as a tank main, do NOT allow me to die so you can get that KDA and flex because you did top damage... AND ZERO HEALING!



  • @Dusklicious, yesterday players kept spamming "Get the point" - paraphrased - and pretty much avoided the point. There I was, as a Frontline, with minimal to zero help. Needless to say, most matches (Seige) were losses. If this keeps happening, I may be forced to bring out my keyboard.

    Due to circumstances, I don't have my keyboard. But as I've always stated, communication, and team strategy, leads to more consistant wins.


  • PC

    How hard can you throw? Featuring the 8/15/4 Sha and the 5/14/8 Skye that both forgot to do ANY F***ING DAMAGE! And of course the Barik spamming VGS because he's upset about how his team LOST this game after carrying to 11-2 early... (Me by the way). And there's also the Ult Battery Raum and the Furia diving like she's an Ash.

  • Why the damage dealers have less damage and kill than a tank? Should I do everything??

    Looks at game above that I definitely know the feeling. 😠



  • Bottom picks in my ranked games were asking for dps champions claiming to be smurfs. Well one of the smurfs went 2-9 on a support Skye with less damage than our Barik and the enemy Inara. Ugh! Every time you get a bottom pick that says "I'm a smurf" they literally feed and cause us to lose the game.



  • I honestly hate having to dps. It's a role where I sweat my ass off and get all of the blame if we lose. It's why I don't like playing dps in ranked games, but I kind of have to. Maybe if I kill enough people and output enough damage, I could make up for the 2-9 Skye or the 7-18 Dredge, right??? Nope. But I do love when the enemy team says "ez" or "noob." That's why I hate being dps. You literally get insulted for sweating your ass off. And if you can't kill enough people to make up for the 2-9 Skye or the 7-18 Dredge, then it's obviously YOUR fault that you lost the game. You're the obvious noob in that scenario.
