True, I didn't notice it. I voted for you then.
EU casual player, I play mostly DPS, favourite characters being Kinessa, Androxus and Strix, cuz I like hitscan, I like flickshots and I like snipers.

RE: Your own paladins memes
Adrix (Paladins Youtuber)... "Strix almost has everything that a Sniper Main would want in his kit."
Evil Mojo: ALMOST? OH YEAH! WE FORGOT SOMETHING! BUFFS STRIX WITH ELEMENTAL BULLETS TALENT
Not sure whether this is an actual buff. Losing the ability to headshot is pretty huge, so is the loss of the burst from the flare. But who knows, maybe people will make it work.
RE: How Is Paladins Doing In Your Country?
The popularity of P. is pretty low in Germany. Most young people do know what it is or have heard of it, but only few people play it. There are some German content creators, like OutlawEmpire, Zaptalin, SonsOfPaladins and Drangedacht, who keep the game going a bit in Germany. The majority of the players are casual players who are pretty bad at the game, but there are also some masters, GMs or competitive players, like Outlaaaaaaw, Sephicloud, Znost, dukedo, Genu2000, Trippez, amongst others. But for the most part people play other games here, and have only tried out P. in 2016/beginning of 2017 but quit the game fairly quickly.
RE: Option to abort ranked matches during champion selection.
I completely agree with you. If you have throwers or trolls on your team who pick bad characters with bad talents or loadouts or whatever, it's pretty much a guaranteed loss in high elo. In Gold you can easily win with any comp, cuz the players are bad and won't punish you and you can make anything work. But that's just a problem of Paladins, even though in theory you can "customize the characters to certain playstyles" and in theory all 3 talents should be of equal strength, there still is a certain meta in terms of loadouts, talents, and champions. And if your team refuses to play the meta, then the chance of a win go down. And in Ranked you obviously don't want to lose because some noob or troll on your team decides to throw the game.
RE: January Rage Thread
Io's Dog is too beefy. You need to rush bulldozer immediately to deal with it. And the problem is, you also need other important items like Caut, Wrecker, Resil and stuff. Considering Bulldozer gets cut in half next patch, why isn't the dog's health cut in half as well, to 2250, why only from 4500 to 4000? It's too hard to kill. And the nerf on the DR is more than justified, 25% DR is just too much, it can't be cauterized away, it can't be countered at all. Adanas said that Io by far has the least amount of deaths among all support, so this is a clear sign that she's too strong. And when it comes Strix, I think he'll be fine next patch, but I still hate him and want him to be nerfed even more. I think his stealth needs to be removed. It's just unfair that he can win the sniper duels cuz he will always get the 1st shot off, without Kinessa being able to do anything against it.
RE: What Your Main Says About You
@HeartQueen andro is kinda wrong, u should see LaDji's flicks
He's a hitscan with even more poke now and an area punch with only a half second cooldown with the same range as Skye's smoke screen. The only hard thing is that similar to Buck, he has an all-in style. If you fuck up, you're punished harshly. If you do it right, then you'll continue the momentum of dominating. I played Androxus for like 2 whole days and pulled decent stats (only bad stats against hard counters like a Lian or Maeve ruining the day). I even screenshotted my stats to my friends like, "this is the guy people say is super hard? lol, he's actually easy."
Like I said, the flank edgy trio are Maeve, Evie, and Androxus mains who think their characters are harder than they actually are. They want to nerf their counters (Makoa, Lian, Cassie, Strix, etc.), but buff their own mains. They really are fundamentally the same which is why I put them as the same, but with slight differences that I explained.
First of all Andro actually counters Maeve, he can easily 1v1 her if he hits shots and uses dashes to dodge her shots. And secondly Strix, Cassie, Makoa and Lian DO need nerfs, it's an undisputable fact. Koa needs a hook rework and a nerf on the ult, and the other three need their burst dmg to be nerfed, so flanks can actually go into the enemy backline and kill them without being blown up immediately.
RE: Please, PLEASE, Keep 3rd Person in Casual
Yes, the removal of 3rd person is such an idiotic change....WHY? Now you can't look around corners anymore to know what your enemies are doing. Instead you need to lock yourself out in an emote for a second or so, when all enemies will just rush you and you can't use any abilities.
