Look, developers, you just cannot update the patch notes for this update and make players think that the nerfs are according to the patch notes only. This is infuriating, due to the patch notes being a month old and you still didn't update them to reflect the new nerfs that had happened to Yagorath. I'm not a developer nor claiming to be one, but common sense dictates that at least the patch notes needs to be updated when the update actually rolls out and not just while in the PTS stage only. because the patch notes that were from one month ago, didn't reflect that Yago's hp pool went from 6500 to 6000. So instead I had to launch the game to find out that 'surprise'.

RE: Don't Care Anymore
@InfectedMazuken, assuming that you know how to play a frontline, I must assume that your teammates aren't playing their roles correctly.
I main as a frontline and when my team is doing what they're supposed to be doing, we win more matches.
Do you take the time to communicate with your team? To strategize before the match begins?
Usually I don't but I believe I should. It is something I often overlook when playing with randoms. I usually expect the flank to kill their healer or damage dealers. The damage dealers to help me and the healer well, to keep the team topped off if can be. I mostly play frontline but I do admit, I'm terrible when it comes to the squishier frontlines like Khan and Barik. I try to contest the point when I can and if I get overwhelmed I usually get out of combat and wait for healing. Other times I flank with the team to get some kills then stand on the point uncontested.
RE: Don't Care Anymore
@InfectedMazuken those are arguably the most tanky tanks. Inara too. If you're dying too much as frontline then it isnt the frontlines fault man. They are all pretty good at what they need to do whether it be off or point. You gotta work on game sense more. Look to see what your teammates are doing and what the enemies doing and use your champs kit to adapt.
Thanks for the comment, I really do mean it. usually I get "Get good. Or uninstall." comments. Nice to see someone giving more tips!
Don't Care Anymore
I tried being positive and improving and trying to adapt to the meta. However, when ever I play frontline I get just completely destroyed by damage dealers or flankers, because either they have more damage or more sustain or mobility than I do. The only two tanks I didn't feel completely useless was Raum and Yagorath. Yes I heard all the complains about Yagorath and how overtuned she is. But she genuinely feels like a tank that can take hits and dish it back. I just feel like a damage sponge when I play any other frontline. Along with this shit, and toxic community's attitude doesn't do me any favors. Just like the title says I don't care anymore. Feel free to shit on this thread or whatnot. It feels punishing to play a frontline that isn't Yagorath or Raum.
RE: Seris Outperforming Other Healers
Seris has a high healing output but she has to channel her heals and if she uses her full healing potential she is busy 50% of the time with healing. A healer who just has to click once every 3-5 seconds to use the full healing output, can use 90% of the time to shoot or change position or use CC. Those supports have to compensate for that with a lower healing output. The only other channeling healer is Io who has a similar high healing as Seris. If their healing would be as low as that of Furia for example they'd be not viable.
Well, thank you for opening my eyes to that, you are right in that regard. I didn't take that into account. Now that you say that, it does make more sense.
Seris Outperforming Other Healers
First let me start off by saying, this is not a rage thread. I would really appreciate it if Hi-Rez could buff other healers to be competitive with Seris. Just in a casual quick match, the opposing team had three healers, most of which went healing, I'll post the screenshot below. We had tier 3 cauterize and we still couldn't make a dent in Seris' healing at the end screen. So here is hoping to make other healers to be as good as Seris. Before people say Furia, the only time I see solar blessing is when there is a Yagorath. Seris just has everything a healer could desire, AoE healing, strong single target healing, and a great escape. Now here is proof that I'm not talking nonsense.
RE: March Rage Thread
Paladins fix your game. It has literally been unplayable this update. Instead of bringing forth more skins why don't you guys put some effort into making the game more fun? Literally there was sooo much delay I couldn't pick any characters and it auto picked for me. Then when I entered the match lobby I couldn't see my teammates until the loading match screen. Next the rubber banding. Like seriously fix your game please...
@Carlolrac555 Yeah I am still here mate, I do agree with you. The gripe I have with all these Torvald nerfs (I have mained him in the OB part of the game) is that they nerfed and nerfed and nerfed him. They didn't make any of his other kit stronger or did a lazy job. They didn't compensate him for all these nerfs. He just simply can't do the job he is assigned currently.
But overall I like your suggestions at least it compensates for all his nerfs instead of "Heeey, here nerf hammer! Enjoy champions!" kind of thing. Then again I have made posts in the past about the state of Torvald and Hi-Rez really isn't listening so I rest my case. Thanks for replying though and making solid points and hope you are enjoying the rest of your day mate!
