I Just Discovered Why They Buffed Magnus' Ult!


#21

I haven’t seen an Ardan being that strong, but maybe that’s me.


#22

selling him for ice was over when they buffed him just about.

They buffed him because he was heavily under performing.


#23

Ardan is reliable and quite viable, but not a priority pick anymore.


#24

Not priority pick ? Highest pick rate with 66% pr that’s what i call priority, out of the 46 ranked games i played this patch Ardan was picked in 37 of them. Ardan has a Lorelai ult every 13 seconds, gauntlet is one of the best abilities in the game and just like any support this patch he can 1v1 any mage/carry with no damage items. Ardan is broken, your knowledge is scary lacking.


#25

From all those how many times was he first/second picked? Priority pick isn’t picked a lot, it’s being picked first as a priority.


#26

Pick rate does not = priority. The heroes with the highest pick rates tend to be A not good enough to ban, B reliable in every situation C easy to play, and D have no real alternatives that do the same thing.

For example kinetic and silvernail as arguably the only 2 top tier bot laners are far higher priority picks, but because they are often interchangeable as picks, and some players are more comfertable on easier/older heroes like gwen they still see far lower pick rates. This is despite Kinetic having almost 4% higher wr than ardan.


#27

Mostly 1, 2nd or 3rd pick, the furthest Ardan goes without getting picked is 4th and 5th pick and that’s cause A side prioritized Kinetic and B side has some idris or vox one trick who just wants his hero secured. Ardan was also picked in almost every game at worlds.
