I slightly missed Vg but after 45 minutes playing the game i remembered why i haven’t touched it in so long and won’t be for quite a while. So i decided to hope on my poa account to warm up since i am hella rusty, spent 4 minutes in queue but someone didn’t accept so i spent another 4 minutes and yet again someone doesn’t accept so here goes another 4 minutes and yet again someone doesn’t accept. After 3 declined games i finally get into draft then into a game some 15 minutes later. Pretty upset already, poa is a big percentage of the player base and it takes 4 minutes to find a game and not only that the queue resetting after a game is declined/dodged is still a thing. But i moved on and i played the game, i was playing joule against caine in lane, i figured this would be a pretty rough match up even though i haven’t tried this patch yet but i don’t have that many heroes on that account to counter-pick properly (providing caine has any counters). Lemme tell you Caine is totally busted, the cd reduction on his B via basic attacks combined with the movement speed buff when he’s reloading makes him insanely mobile, his ult is completely ridiculous not cause of the true damage execute but of how much he can spam it and his damage is pretty ridiculous once he gets some items. I was pretty disgusted by how stupidly broken this hero is, like semc literally did everything they could to make him Op status. At this point you probably think that i got beat pretty hard by this Caine and that’s why i am ranting but you’re wrong i was 25/0 in 20 minutes . So now you’re like then why are you complaining you won right ? Well no my teammates literally played like bots, i kept getting kills but then they would keep chasing and die instead of capturing dragons. Eventually the Caine got some items after being gifted kills by my brilliant teammates. We eventually lost in a 37 minutes game that we should have won in no more than 22, all my team had to do was help me capture dragons instead of dying trying to chase kills but they never got the hint the entire game. Its literally impossible to make me tilt on my smurf but literally but this entire 50 minutes experience was just depressing, the 15 minutes wait to get into a game, how ridiculously op the new hero is and the awful quality of the game. 1 game in 2 months that’s all i am gonna have, if the game is so frustrating on my smurf then i can’t imagine how tilting its gonna be on my main once the matchmaker starts handing me low elo teammates and matching me against parties.
Edit: After leveling up i also got a bunch of very exciting talent coins (not).
