So far I noticed we are in a pretty heavy assassin meta. Malene is pretty much permaban, Caine is permabanned, Taka is running rampant with one of the dumbest builds known to man, Anka is ridiculously strong, Gwen is still veey dominant, and Reza is…Reza.
I feel like games are being skewed too heavily towards teams with 2 or 3 of these heroes and I just wanna list changes I feel might need to be made. Feel free to talk about them and list tour own personal wishes! There are of course other heroes that can be talked about, but I wanna talk about these heroes specofically for now
Firestarter should probably just get a ratio nerf and maybe some nerfs on his B. Probably the CD. He and Anka are more tame compared to the others tbh
Her B could use a small damage nerf. Even if only a few knives hit they deal a good chunk of damage, so she can poke better than any other melee assassin.
Oh boy where do I start with her? She is one of the most snowbally heroes known to man. Once she is 2 or so kills ahead she is nearly unkillable (And quite literally unbeatable in 1v1 laning) as she can just use her light B to run up to you, forcing you to use a dash where she can just slow you and chunk half of your health with her Shadow ult. I’d nerf the damage on the shadow empowerment, the move speed or duration on her light B, and the damage on her shadow A.
SEMC. Her B is not the issue. Her perk is too heccing strong. The range nerf helps bring her down a BIT, but it’s her burst that’s the problem. She uses TB very very well and once mid game hits she can chunk a quarter of your health with one AA while having very high movement speed to boot.
Lower the damage on his A and increase the CD on his B at overdrive. He needs clear weaknesses while not chunking 80% of your hp in one combo. His ult is mainky used as a poking tool during laning or catching people running away, but maybe reduce the execute threshhold a bit as well if you need to? Weaknesses should be there to keep heroes in check through an entire match. Not just to be nullified later in the match.
So annoying rn. Triple TM should NOT work as well as it does on Tako. His B makes him escape fights way too easily and his perk allows him to have ridiculously fast clear with just banner and have very high presence for ganks. I’d nerf his perk’s damage and revert the duration buff on his B tbh. You could abuse him to tier 10 silver rn with no problem tbh.
