first, i wanted to point out another MAJOR nerf, one that they have to tell us about cuz like dominate we will notice if they try to do it without telling us. and i will make sure to point any nerf out i notice. i’m paying attention to all his stats now, and will have pic proof of changes. but his platinum was just reduced by 20%!!! and they made dominate easier to cleanse thru damage. but enough about those shady practices!
let’s talk night!
night had the first legendary skin, released around aug 2018. within a couple months she became THE META HEALER. it was so frustrating and i know the community had more angry posts about her than ronin and flatline combined! well eventually, jan 2019, they nerfed her heal. and overnight she dropped from the meta, and became as useless galante or bucket. in fact, the nerf was so devastating that night became better for healing without her skin! her ability to heal one person enough to sustain them was more valuable than her weak healing of every hero. it became as subtle and useless as gammonds heal was. and more recently, when they nerfed flatline, we basically lost all our good healing heroes and saw shield heroes rise to the meta. we don’t see ANY healing heroes being released anymore, the only hero that does any support from all the heroes released this year was briar, and it’s sad to have lost her as a healer since it’s so minimal you can’t even notice it. seems if the hero isn’t good for bounty then it doesn’t get designed, which is going to be more hurtful to the game over time than if they actually left kurtz alone and let everyone have a hero that powerful. so pretty soon when everyone has kurtz they will need to figure out a new way to let whales dominate pvp without any actual skill. but if they don’t add better support heroes we can expect pvp to continue to become less and less fun.
but the bottom line is, the nightengale buff this november update might be the most exciting patch. moss’ healing cloud buff is a close second. these MIGHT be a big deal, or maybe they won’t be a strong enough buff to make them useful again, or in moss’ case, at all. we need more support heroes for variability; desperately! and pay attention to the kurtz nerfs. cuz i just love watching them pretend every update the nerfs were spontaneous. i bet they have a schedule to reduce kurtz to worthless, and the more we make noise the slower they have to take it. and then maybe you’ll get to experience some of the dominating force he has to offer before it’s completely chipped away. would be so fun to watch what a clusterf@&$ it would be for him to be radically unlocked at even his current power.
20% nerf to kurtz platinum skill this update! and another nerf to dominate, it’s already been nerfed 16% and subsequent 20%, and now cleansing the effect was made easier this patch… so by the time your hard work pays off and you unlock him, you won’t get the same kurtz you’ve been losing to since beginning of may!!!
STOP NERFING KURTZ!!!
