Preface: Im salty as hell that this game that I love (or used to cuz it’s garbage now) is currently UNPLAYBABLE.
I tried giving this patch another chance earlier today. I just cannot and will not play this game anymore until Captains get buffed.
It was a ranked match. No one was toxic, no one was actually even bad- I just straight-up did not have fun at all.
There was not a single occasion in that match where I felt the THRILL of playing as a support. This update’s changes undoubtedly ruined the role for me.
- CAPTAIN ITEMS
“The item cooldown changes were to make captains feel more iMpAcTfUl” my ASS.
Wow! In a 5v5 match where CC is everywhere, never have I felt sOOoOOOooo impactful! Not only am I getting items later than usual, their stats are worse (not to mention the CDR cap reduction).
“But hey if you babysit midlane u get $$$”
I don’t want to feel like I’m punished for rotating to help my other teammates out. I get it that this could be a “decision-making mechanic” to make things more interesting, but does it really? It just feels like I’m stuck in a lose-lose situation. Not fun.
And then there’s the Crucible CD nerf. I understand if only Reflex Block / Aegis was affected, but… CRUCIBLE?
Such as having Phinn’s Forced Accord being able to be cast for a second time without worrying that the enemy Reflex Block/Crucible is available.
But the thing is: that was the part of the beauty of being a Captain. Being aware of your opponents’ blocks, and knowing how to time your ults (such as Phinn) properly. Now they just dumbed it down. Hooray. Pretty much all the non-healing captains were in a decent spot before this change. To me they just “fixed” a non-existent problem.
- TENSION BOW
