It seems sand bagging with a ruby hero is the new way to go. In the latest tournament I have faced over 100 teams. Of those, I only lost to 4 that did not have any ruby players. The other 10 losses were all to teams with ruby players on their team.
In fact I usually lose a hero in under 3 seconds to a ruby Serial or Lancer. My entire team is usually dead within 10 seconds. Ruby Serial and Lancer are able to easily put out over 100k DPS. To put that in perspective, even a Siren getting her full song off, against a team of all bio heroes usually only gets up to the 70-80k DPS range. That’s with AOE hitting every enemy on the field. Lancer and Serial have no where near the same AOE yet easily do 30k+ more DPS.
When is this going to be addressed? Easiest fix right now would be to make Ruby players only face other ruby teams. All but 2 of the current top 25 teams on the leaderboards are ruby players
