DIMITRI, The Cyclops



  • I AM DIMITRI

    NAME: DIMITRI
    RACE: Cyclops
    CLASS: FRONT LINE
    PROFESSION: WARCHIEF
    HEALTH POOL: 4000
    SPEED: MEDIUM - GROUND BASED

    The Resistance Warchief, once a peacekeeper of the mountains and the wealth beneath them, now a crestfallen lunatic, driven mad by is failure to stop the slaughter of his people by the hands of the Magistrate. Imprisoned and stripped of all pride by his enemy, his dreams haunted by the dying screams of his kin, nothing more now then a half mad beast driven to the brink of sanity... YET STILL HE WONT DIE...NOT WITHOUT A FIGHT...
    It is hard to grasp why a Cyclops can be so merciless, butchering his foes with a twisted passion, ripping skulls from spines, snapping limbs like twigs, the way he smiles and laughs like a bloodthirsty maniac as legions of trained soldiers lay mangled in his wake, these are the marks of a creature who knows loss, and it is clear that this brute has lost everything and will fight until he or his foes lie bloodied and broken.

  • I believe this was posted on the old forums, am I right?



  • Yes it was part of the old Forums.
    Dimitri was a concept before.... Khan...
    Spent a bit of time on this one trying to make it work in game without any major complications.

    Dimitri is an area supressor who uses strong low-mid range dps, as well as cripple and slow soft CC skill shot moves to lock foes out of escaping at range, keeping foes out in the open and exposed to fire for as long as possible. His powerful CC slow move is tied to his mobility tool, thus creating an all or nothing strategy if used this way.

    Has a weak 4k dome shield to briefly hold back damage from every angle and get a window for healing, has to care for a deployable inside the shield as it is the key reducing the cooldown of the shield, so cqc fights inside a dome in the open are not recommended unless foes are kept out of the shield. The shield bides time to activate and deploy his mobility or lock down moves, or gain a decaut window to get maximum sustain healing from Berzerk.

    His mobility tool is fairly easy to read as it describes to all players who can see it where he will travel before he gets opts to go there, it can be canceled by other players by shoving Dimitri out of range or out of line of sight of his hook. It can also be hindered by hard CC effects such as stuns, silences and fears although they will not brake the mobility cable unless the character is pulled out of line of sight or the duration of the mobility expires.

    His ULT Berzerk is a Damage Reversal / Self Sustain endurance move designed to eat and throw back firepower for a brief time. Healing the player passively in order eat more damage and synergize with healing mechanics, combine with shield healing for a moment of powerful self recovery. As you take damage you gain energy to use for a powerful lazer shot or instant uncauterizable self recovery.
