Now Dusklicious... You really expected L1bra and Hyuga to be making videos? I'm surprised about SterileTick and Parallax though. Not about the videos, well I'm surprised Parallax ain't making videos. I'm just surprised that SterileTick isn't writing on his Twitter, Discord, Reddit, or even here about what was discussed.
I know that Syberbolt is making a video, but he's under the weather now. He's usually slow on videos anyway due to work and college (I think he's still in college?). It's why they shouldn't rely on him imo. I think Syberbolt should keep on this track actually. He sucks at the game and will likely have bad balance takes. The issue is that several people are also focusing on UI as well.
I like Sterile as well.
ParallaxQueen seems a bit like Z1 2.0. Nitpicking, and then not understanding why something is good. Like when Z1 changed Jenos range card. Like sure it makes him not as safe, but that's like not the reason that he's frustrating. He's frustrating because of Luminary. Same thing with Parallax. Grover isn't S tier due to vining on his teammates lol. He's S tier because his cripple kills flanks, has good poke for a support, plus he has high healing that sustains double tanks. Not to mention, the pockets got nerfed which boosted him up. The Lian changes were pointless. It's like, why??? Much like Z1, she doesn't seem to know how to pick her battles. Like is Grover not being able to vine to his teammates going to really improve balance? The Barik nerf does nothing and the Moji change does nothing. The Fernando thing was good. The map thing seems like she wants to not be controversial. I would just go for it. Fishnit said, and I agree, "keep the fun maps in the game and keep the unfun maps out of the game." Controversial, but I agree.
I'm slightly disappointed in Parallax. I had higher expectations. That Z1 influence really kicking in.
It seems like we once again have reps who give me the idea that I, as a DIAMOND LEVEL PLAYER, know balance way better than they do. Even Parallax's takes are ridiculous especially for being so close with a GM player (who, uhh, isn't immune to being bad at the game actually. He threw as Moji (why I will never know) in one of my Plat level ranked games so).
Speaking of balance takes I should post an outline of my own ideas for 4.3 balance.
I mean, we have Parallax who thinks that among Yagorath, Overwatch shield meta, flanks and hitscans being in a bad spot, and Luminary Jenos being a shit design, the thing that breaks this game is Grover being able to vine to his teammate. Also, why does she and Z1unknown have such a hate boner against Grover? I really don't get it.
They discovered the hyper mega broken strategy of going bouncing house buck + evie + flying inara + beta bk (or alpha was it?) + grover attached to inara rushing into the enemy backlane and are nerfing it accordingly. Amazing job.
