Ok so, I get that hi rez doesn't like how the old kinessa scope used to make her less of a stereotype based sniper who uses range, but all the players liked it a lot more, why not a compromise just like the andro and lex changes, bring her scope back in the shape of a talent, isn't that the whole point of the talent system, to give champions a variation in playstyle?
Having a sniper whose based on close to medium range would be so cool and a unique concept to paladins, of course the talent would require more then just a scope change I was thinking to have the talent revert the scope changes along with a ramp card that adds movement speed on kills, it would incentivise a aggro and snowball playstyle to a sniper champion , potentially even allowing her to flex to the flank role.
paladins needs to start changing from an overwatch clone to its own game, and kinessa is arguably the closest champion to an overwatch hero aka widowmaker, both have mines very similar momvement abilities, and a charged sniper, giveing her this new talent(ofc with changes as hi rez see's fit) would drastically change the way she's played and is the way the talent system is meant to be used. This would really benefit aggressive snipers with good aim and draw away the similarly she shares with strix too.
This would give a good and solid reason to pick kinessa or strix for the given situation, strix has a very backline based playstyle and in contrast kinessa would be a very aggro sniper, as of now, both snipers are more or less interchangeable (in high elo this isn't really the case ik, but I'm talking generally)
