"All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.”
That’s maybe a little dramatic, but the basic meaning is the same. Why don’t I just click off the post? Because I enjoy the game.
Because I like facts.
Because I take the time to try and find a team to beat whatever is the most recent flavor of super team, as they are given to us, because that is the only true way to know if a nerf or buff is needed AND it gives the developers the data they need to make decisions on nerfs and buffs.
Because I read skill descriptions and pay attention to how those skills actually play out in the game and I make note of which ones work as described and which ones don’t.
The moment you start talking about nerfs, based on incorrect information, you begin a downward spiral of inaccurate conjecture. People read these posts. People who might be looking for information on what heroes to work on and they see all these posts about nerfing and the misinformation that is spouted off as reasons for the nerf and hence become misinformed players making misinformed decisions and may choose to not work on a good hero because they fear the hero will be changed before they even get there.
Here’s a question: why is Marianas “so good”? Her gold skill? Her bronze, silver, platinum, ruby? I’ll tell you, the answer is none…well her ruby skill is probably her most effective stand alone skill but ANY tank at ruby can blast cover. Her gold skill is all but harmless and that is what you are focused on because you say it (above) and because I’m also very familiar with the cover breaker marianas halo kreiger, kiyoshi teams and all the complaints swirling around it.
This is interesting because it’s an “example”, so you say, but it’s a very specific “example” that is clearly imparting your opinion that her gold skill is too powerful. No. Her gold skill is merely triggering the platinum or gold skills of halo, kreiger, and kiyoshi. The breaking of cover is what meets the condition of Marianas’ gold skill. As I said, I read skills…and then I observe…
Have you played this team? Have you played against this team? Read the platinum skill for halo, the gold for kreiger, and the platinum for kiyoshi and then tell me if that is what is really happening in the game. Are you really getting hit by Halo 40% of the time? By Kreiger 60% of the time? By Kiyoshi 50% of the time? Keep in mind that Marianas is hitting every second. That means Halo should only hit you with lightning 4 times in 10 seconds. Kreiger’s gold 6 times. Kiyoshi lightning 5 times per 10 seconds. Ask yourself, is Marianas’ gold skill really the problem here?
I LOVE this game and I LOVE it’s players and I want them to seek the truth of game play and when I see this, or any other post, where someone is dragging a hero through the mud because of what 4 other heroes can magnify her skills into, I’m going to say something.
