Ok I know probably no one cares, but I finally got a mastery star! I’m actually really enjoying playing Yates, as I generally fill, which means I generally captain, he’s become a really nice comfort pick for me and unless a specific hero is an obvious pick in the draft I’m falling back to him more and more.
He is banned quite a bit, although I seem to always get people who have no idea what they’re doing banning… I still see a lot of pointless Alpha bans, and quite a few SAW bans (altho I can understand that, to prevent allies from picking him) and flicker seems to have a 100% ban rate in my matches, altho that’s not necessarily bad.
Not gonna lie I enjoy all the viable picks too, especially jungle… but on the other hand I’m OTPing so much. I’ve got 27 ranked games on Ylva. Don’t think I really played any hero more than 3 times besides her lol.
I’m sorry but is it only me that thinks this mastery is more useless than hats?
The word mastery suggests having great knowledge of something, and in this game it is used just to let people know you have played them a lot. A really bad player can achieve level 5 mastery so to me this isn’t something worth celebrating.
I’ve thought of this too so I agree. One who plays a hero a lot doesn’t necessarily make him good with the hero.
On the other hand, I also agree with @Guest_78, at least with the masteries, allies and enemies will have an impression/idea that a certain player can play the hero at least, if not really good with it.
So, if one should pick a SAW but with 5 star mastery, people might think he is not trolling and must be very good at it. Haha! Or worst case probably, he trolled a lot with SAW. Nyahaha!
