To all of you that replied about Strix being better than Kinessa, its true. I didnt say Kinessa is like BETTER than Strix but more like she can do better than him in certain comps that have good CC. The part on Strix and Kinessa was just my opinion. The first sentence regarding strix and kinessa was a bit too direct and misunderstood(mistake on my part). Now i just want to clear out my point on why I think she can do better than Strix in those comps(And yes Strix is much better than Kinessa overall). Take a look at a few of my examples. For instance,You are going to be dived by a flank and are in trouble. A good Damba player can stun him and the both of you together can finish him off easily or force him to use his escape. He can also stun others like tanks. Thats a team synergy and also helps her out to deal with her main issue that is, she is easy to flank. The enemy team is on the cap and the Inara used her ult in your presence and stunned 4 people on point. You can follow up using your own ult and pick off atleast 3 people easily while they are stunned by doing headshots. That would be half of their team dead and the other 2 people can easily be dealt with by your team or force them to retreat. Thats game-changing and also another really good team synergy with Kinessa.
Kinessa can only do better than Strix when fitted to the right compositions like Inara, Damba, Cassie etc in the same team. Strix is better than her overall and doesnt need all that teamplay to be so effective and needs a hard nerf.
@Heartstrife I dont have much to say to you but that by the words "simply outshines" i meant she can do much better than Strix at that specific situation where a player uses his ult and you take advantage or also combo that with your own ult if he got more than 2 players I didnt say She is better. Strix is better than Kinessa overall.
@schachmaty Like I said Kinessa is not better than strix at all but only comes close with the right compositions. One thing that Kinessa does better than Strix is she can escape getting dived completely even at low health and even against 2 players, Strix cant do that and also can only fight 1v1s at full health. Its up to the dmg dealer to leave him vulnerable for flanks to finish him. Kinessa should never duel Strix. The one exception is when your flanker is ready to dive him. Just let him bodyshot you as you do the same to him and the flanker can do the rest. Also the best way to deal with him is to pick him off when he is not dueling you. This makes it easy to 1 hit him or follow-up on a half charged shot giving him less time to react. One shotting him when he is not dueling you is usually not too hard for good players but even if u cant, he will still have a hard time taking aggressive angles which gives flanks more opportunities to flank him without getting bursted down completely.
Lastly, I dont think Kinessa is better than Strix(she is not). I think Kinessa can do much better than him ONLY when she is playing with her best team comps.
