Primary fire ranking list - All Champions (Darkness & Dragons)
I had to take all measurements by myself in the Shooting Range because the official Paladins Wiki is quite incomplete and inconsistent, so there might be some numbers that are not the same as the ones shown in the Wiki but I tried to be as accurate as possible. Also, I wanted to include Projectile Speed and Accuracy in the data, but I had to no way to measure them. This and the fact that I had to make various accomodations to be able to make the list, such as ignoring weapons passive properties (e.g. Fernando's burn or Grohk's damage increase) and the rest of each Champion's kit, means that this isn't an absolute tier list, mostly an indicative ranking with general overall validity.
(In case anyone's confused with some of the data, it's probably because of this. Ask me below for clarifications)
RE: Provision to kick players in Ranks.
@Dyazon Your idea is nice but it has deep flaws. First of all, as stated in the comment above, what if you're really good with a champion but the rest of the team won't listen to any reason and thinks you're throwing ? What if you want to pick an off-meta champion or want to play an off-meta comp, knowing that you're a good player and it can work just like any other, but the rest of the team wants to follow the meta at any cost ? What if your teammates are actually throwing, picking something like 4 flanks, and you want to kick some of them but they turn against you and kick you instead, calling you toxic ? What if they're in a party and, to troll, vote to kick you for no reason ? In all this situation the system you're proposing would actually be broken and unfair. Plus, once you successfully kick someone, both teams would have to wait even more to start another match, after waiting to find a match, waiting to ban, waiting to select characters and now also waiting to kick a player!
I know ranked right now has problems, but this idea doesn't really solve much.
RE: Christian battlepass
@KicsitCsicska Your response seems quite heated, so I apologize if it looked like I was trying to start an argument or my previous messages sounded unpleasant or rude. I'll avoid dragging the conversation further, but I assure you that I value your opinion as much as mine, my word is not an absolute truth. I was just stating why I, personally, think this kind of content would have a very hard time getting into the game, but that doesn't mean I consider your idea stupid or anything like that (I actually think it's quite an original one). At the end of the day, only the devs can say "yes" or "no" to this kind of things, so our speculation doesn't count much. You should directly ask them, if you really want to know their view on the matter.
RE: Champion Skin Customization
@ak0312 They took it away so that they could be more creative when making new skins. Previously, they had to make sure that no new head model would clip with any other body model for the same character and viceversa, which meant limiting what could and couldn't be created. By making so that any head only goes with the body it was meant to, they don't have to worry about it and can add more stuff on the new skins
RE: August Rage Thread
This two spent the whole game hunting me down and taunting after every single kill. At first I thought they were doing some BP challenge so, as annoying as it was, I didn't think to it too much. Then in the after-match lobby they started trash-talking me ("trash koa", "u mad", "get recked", etc.) so I thought they were people I had somehow pissed off in a previous match and, as frustrating as it was, I played it cool and just agreed that they gave me a hard time, gg, etc. But then, seeing as I wasn't falling for the bait, they ADMITTED they were just trying to tilt me (as shown in the screenshot) and then proceeded to trash-talk our Ying too, for no reason, to the point that even their own teammates called them out for being toxic.
HOW SHITTY CAN YOU BE TO HARASS AND ANNOY A COMPLETE STRANGER ON AN ONLINE GAME JUST FOR YOUR OWN AMUSEMENT ?
I obviously reported them but now I'm posting this because I really WANT people to see this and them getting properly punished. I could understant harassing someone because you're mad with them, even though you shouldn't do it anyway, but this behaviour is unnaccetable...
RE: top play and limited skins
@HeartQueen Dragon's Call, Reanimate, Frost Glide, Shoulder Bash, Shadow Step, Strix's and Kinessa's scopes, Fernando's shield, respawning itself, all of them (and they're just those that come to my mind right now) had extremely common bugs that disappeared for good with the removal of 3p, instead of being band-aid fixed every other patch. I don't know why Evie's bug is still here but there's no way to deny that removing 3p resolved many bugs, even if it meant getting rid of such a big feature from the game. Saying it's a "lie" is clearly false, since the improvement is so evident to anyone who knows what was the state of Bugadins before and after those updates.
I've made this semi-exaustive list of semi-original ideas for 32 talents that I'd like to be more or less changed.
What do you guys think ? I'd like to get some feedback...

RE: Enough with Viktor - NERF
@GreenTheater Nazi troops ? Lol, what makes you think that ? Might be his russian accent ? Or his original russian look ? Or his russian dance emote ? Or his skin with an ushanka and a red star ? Please, i'd like to hear where the whole "nazi character" thing comes from....
RE: 150k damage, shields, and healing
@NinjaLombax I mean, do you remember the "spend 1.000.000 ammunition" one ? That was much, much harder. These can be easily completed in a good Siege match, such as in ranked. The shielding one is especially easy if you use Half-shell Makoa with max reset.
RE: Christian battlepass
@KicsitCsicska I'm afraid this would be a really bad idea, mixing real religions with fiction always results in conflicts with the affiliates of both that religion and the others. I mean, a character who is essentially an evil, weaponized undead as literally the namesake of Christianity ? A member of an overzealous, real life, criminal, terrorist group as a playable character ? Or playing as the Lord of Hell, symbol of everything evil, himself ? Do I really have to explain why all these would be really controversial and would only damage Paladins ? There are some things from the real world that should be left out of videogames and fictional medias, no matter how "cool" or "well known" they seem. Religion and politics are two of them.
RE: Some little things that i want to see in game.
- When i want to create a deck and i add 1 wrong card i need to do it all over again. They need to add like a cancel thing on where we create our decks.
What do you mean ? You can just click again on the card and swap it with another card you want
Tbh I don't understand what do you didn't get about this.
You earn on average 4-5k credits in a normal match but Caut only costs 1.8k credits to max out, which is not even half of it. What I don't get is why you say that people have to spend 80% of their credits to counter healers, since Caut alone doesn't cost that amount.
RE: You still keep matching bot teammates into team A vs real players in team B.
@Theropodaz Because people usually get disconnected at the very beginning of the match, not in the middle...
RE: August Rage Thread
Have you ever wished to feel the fantastic sensation of stroboscopic lights flashing straight into your eyes ?
Have you ever wondered what would be like to look at a seizure inducing screen ?
Well, lucky people, worry no more !
From now on, Paladins️ has just the thing for you !
Just launch the game, enter any match and one time out of three you'll be welcomed by a free trial our patented EpilepticLaunchScreen️.

Wow, what a deal !
Farewell wishes of experiencing foaming mouths, rolling eyes and spasms, today you may have them from real, only with Paladins️.
Thank you, EpilepticLaunchScreen️ for being the right product we've all always dreamt of !
I love this game but, seriously, how do they manage to mess up every single patch, introducing new bugs in features that weren't even meant to be changed in the update ?
RE: CC vs Resillance
@HeartQueen They could give it an adaptive value, with some formula along the lines of
"60% - (10% × (a-b))", where "a" is the average duration of CCs in the game and "b" is the duration of the effect in consideration. This way the shorter CCs are less affected by Resilience, while the longer ones are actually affected more. Obviously, this is just an example, all numbers could be tweaked. My point is that by making Resilience more complex it could be more flexible and feel better both to use and to go against, though at the cost of being harder to balance and implement.
