This "joke" gets posted at least once a day on the Paladins Reddit and it just isn't funny. First time is a cute play on words but people just constantly bring it up and as a gay person I don't think constantly "joking" about gays to be funny. Especially since multiple times a day you get people in this game using the f word or some other homophobic insult.

RE: Tyra is a little overpowered
@Shadowpuppy I mostly use Burn Monster when I play her. If there is a Strix, Skye, or multiple flanks, then I go Hunting Party to help the team keep track of flanks and give them an edge. I typically don't have problems with flanks with either Card unless they double team me.
@Dusklicious Burn Monster works very well against flanks. They can't use their mobility to easily escape you and its doing damage to them at the same time. Throw it in Skye's Smoke Screen and she can't heal herself or refresh her invisibility. Wormhole Evie and Koga can't do anything while in it which makes them easy pickings. If it misses or it's on cooldown, then you might have to be a bit more careful. She also has a card to increase her speed after she's thrown Fire Bomb which is useful for getting out of situations you think you can't win.
I understand positioning. However, when Fire Bomb is thrown on the Control Point or on the Payload you really have no choice but to leave which obviously means you lose.
RE: Tyra is a little overpowered
The main problem with her is Burn Monster. I play her pretty often and it's crazy how easy it is to throw the bomb, get a kill, and throw another one with the reduced cooldowns on eliminations card. The increased damage and cripple are just incredibly strong and melt anyone, especially tanks. I don't know about those saying she is easy to flank as I really have no problems with flanks when playing her. Simply choose the Hunting Party Legendary Card and it's almost impossible to actually get flanked.
RE: Vivian has an unfair combination of abilities/cards
I think Vivian has the same issue as Tyra. They made Tyra slow with long Cooldowns to balance out her abilities and damage. However, she has cards that speed her up and reduce the Cooldowns and almost every Tyra uses these so her drawbacks become moot.
Vivian was made slow because of her high damage output but with One Step Ahead Vivian is already rolling around at the speed of sound and add Nimble on top of that and you'll never catch her. So, once again the drawback becomes nonexistent. One Step Ahead gives Vivian 5% increase each Level of the Card while Sha Lin and Lian's Wanderlust and Highborn give only 3% increase in Speed. Reducing her card to match this would make her a bit more balanced.
The only other issue I have with her is the Opportunity in Chaos Legendary. It's literally getting a huge damage bonus for doing nothing but shooting which is all Vivian does anyway. Some suggestions:
- After 2 seconds of firing your shots pierce enemies. Bullets that have pierced enemies deal 50% reduced damage. (Meaning you only do reduced damage after the bullet already hits an enemy but do normal damage otherwise).
- After 2 seconds of firing your shots slow enemies for 20% for 1.5 seconds. Continued shots taken from you refresh the effect.
- Geting killed by an enemy attaches a Vendetta Drone to them. You gain 15% Lifesteal from the Drone and upon killing the enemy you gain an extra 50 credits. Up to five Vendetta Drones can be active but they do not stack.
RE: Tiberius is too broken!
Any sort of criticism against Tiberius will likely be met with negativity. People on this game love people that can shred everyone with little to no skill required to do it. They then tell you that you're trash because they claim to never die to any of these people.
Just like Talus, he has Buck and Tyra's Ultimate on a short cooldown. He has a very easy way to build Ultimate Charge by simply activating the same ability which doesn't really make sense. Heavy Blade is a better Dredge Harpoon since it has a longer slow and can go through Barriers. Damage Immunity during certain parts of his Ultimate is also ridiculous since they just removed it from Lian. People will say they never have a problem with him or just Crowd Control but you can't always just save an ability in case Tiberius jumps at you.
Another problem is how easy it is for him to just stand back and practically snipe spam away at people. You try to flank him and then he just activated Combat Trance and you're almost guaranteed to be deleted.
Raum is awful on his own and now we have Tiberius. I don't get why they can't just release characters that are actually decently balanced and not just a bunch of spam that obliterates anyone attempting to flank them.
