Still figuring out these Forums but I made this thread to talk about the Pirate's Treasure Update as well as bugs.
So First of all I want to say that I really enjoy the new aesthetic of the game in the PTS. I am almost sold on everything except the Champion Section. I think the current one is superior because of easy access.
The one on PTS, I understand it but I think it lacks quick access to some champions if I wanted to modify a loadout real quick between queues. However the fact that it prioritizes highest level champions first is quite nice.
Second I would rank this patch overall as probably in the top two Updates in recent memory. It's hard to beat the patch that got rid of that one patch that is best forgotten.
Let's be honest, Dredge got nerfed.
If you want to make his ult better here is what you do: Remove pre-fire timing. Done. Maybe even knock 0.3s off the deploy. Easy Fix.
Pep in the Step for Pip would be fine if it gave 10% movement ability. Did not need to get nerfed to 6%. I understand since Grover the Devs seemingly got scared about movement speed. Guess What? Pip doesn't have the absurd Radius Grover does. It's fine. Also about time it got buffed to last at least 3s.
Also Yay, Combat Medic got buffed.
Also no nerfs to Luminary Jenos. I'm not asking for a % nerf to the bonus amp. I'm just asking you make it so the Damage Amp only lasts 6s per application. 12.5s of 15% damage amp is asinine.
Other than that balance wise everything else is meh.
Oh Fix Fernando's Aegis Talent. It should reduce the CD of his Shield by 2s but it does not. You should be able to get a 6s CD with Aegis and Towering Barrier V, you do not you only get an 8s CD because Aegis is either bugged or like Life Exchange you shadow nerfed it and then put into your patch notes after someone caught it.
If there is another post that I missed that already exists for the PTS feel free to combine the threads I didn't see any at the time.
If anyone else has thoughts about the PTS let me know. I think overall it's pretty solid, still really light on balancing especially since we are waiting two months for each patch.
Before I go the Battle Pass is quite nice. Much better work except the borders, I just have not been a fan of any of the borders for any of the Battle Passes.
