PSA to new players
When you won a team fight, and cap is about 60-70% during 3-3.
For the love of everything, DON'T JUST STAND ON POINT and look pretty ! One 1 of you is needed, the rest of you should zone out !
Matchmaking : "Hey I see you are having a 4 wins streak on Siege, here carry this low level 4 man team. remember, for you red is better than green!"
when your teammates rushed buldozer when you are playing Io.... and the opponent team doesn't have deployables
"it's treason" - Palpatine
Does anyone else have a funny or unecpected character quote or reaction to share?
GG EZ - V1K-TOR VVGG line. I admit when I win a game as Vik I use that
V1K-TOR skin definitely has good voice lines, the voice when you got killed over and over and Vik started having existential crisis is definitely a good one.
My favorite banter is this tho :
Koga : YOU ARE ALREADY DEAD
Ying : teleport away Awwww did I trick you?
@Driggydrug First I gotta apologize, I had another look and he didn't retire because of burst escalation but cause of essence system. I overthink that and combine that with his PC/console balancing rant.
he retired because he was angry at HR customization & monetization system (Cassie OB51 gameplay video) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DCFTcWHvUl4
Kinessa : "protect me from Skye"
also Kinessa : "need healing"
also Kinessa : VHS VHS VHS VHS
also Kinessa : "heal MEEEEE"
also Kinessa : report Ying
also Kinessa : stay wayyyy in the back making it very hard to heal
also Kinessa : can't kill a Tyra who was burning the Nando
As you can see, there was a bloody good reason I was pocketing the flankers, cause they are useful
I have been playing this game since 2016, and healing output was nerfed a lot compared to back then.
TLDR : Burst happened cause Hirez nerfed HP number, nerfed shield number, nerfed mobility. While completely forgetting about the base damage calculation was designed for champions with higher HP numbers
Back then, games minimal goes for 15 minutes cause every champions have higher HP, Fernando had 6000 HP + 10K Shield and Makoa had 5500 HP + 6000 Shield. Ying used to heal for 400/sec per illusion so 800/sec once you set up her illusions with longer range. Grohk used to heal for 600/sec base with healing rain card I think I did around 800/sec or more depends on the receiver HP. HP & heals were nerfed, a lot.
Was burst a problem back then? No, cause every champion has their own escape and has a higher HP (except Evie). Drogoz coming in with Caut 3 Salvo combo? You aren't instantly seeing the kill cam. Drogoz needed another shot to kill you (unless you are Evie)
See this video, did you see anyone getting instantly seeing killcam?
No, it needed a team effort cause unless you wasn't paying attention
Bursting you down from full HP needed a duel even when you are using Drogoz who was at full power with inherent Fussilade and Combustion and WYRM Jet combined into one, BK had chain reaction as base damage, Viktor has a combo where his grenade AND his first 4 bullets gave him bonus damage before adding headshots, Kinessa can one shot Evie with headshot and many many more damage buffs for each and every champion.
These days? If you aren't a tanky tank, a Drogoz could burst you down to 0 with one combo, there was a time Androxus can literally punch Fernando in a few secs (fortunately deviant fist has been changed), or some spammy pirate can burst you down to 0 with a click cause you walked into his spam area.
PS : And yes as you requested this is a high rank match, defnothanzo was one of the best Paladins player (above 5000 ELO) before he retired cause he doesn't like where the game is going, and he was right.
Heals are never the problem, cauterize is necessary but not the problem. Burst happened cause they nerfed mobility, they nerfed defensive items (cause many people find the item shop too complicated) so much I don't buy Haven/Blast shield anymore unless the opponent is really good cause at Haven/Blast3 only provide 21% dmg reduction that means nothing and it cost 1800 credits which would have gotten more green items or other items (AND how about the fact, they completely forgot to rebuff these items back to 30% max after all this burst meta fiasco), they nerfed HP, they nerfed shield.
While completely forgetting about the base damage calculation was designed for champions with higher HP numbers
Or maybe Hirez doesn't forget, it's just they wanted to emulate Overwatch's low TTK. Hell, what do I know...
dies near enemy team
respawned right next to enemy team
BK : stood inside Koga's Ult "NOOB SUPPORT"
BK : went left while the rest went right. Faced 3-5 opponents. "NOOB SUPPORT"
Test Map : Maybe I can relax and just play my weakest champ NOPE... Atlas: NOOB FLANK
I did let out my rage and went smash all with Io afterward, even got a reverse win from 3-0 overtime charging solo against their team (3 people I think) grouping up on point as a last ditch effort (oh wait, I have my trusty dog Luna missile).... felt gooooodddddd
