The fact that contraption exists completely nullifies even a fed Taka. I’m talking 7 kills up full build and still not able to engage on a fight because every five goddamn steps there are mines beeping and exploding. Seriously, Taka needs viability outside of his stealth mechanic (specifically WP in this case because for christ’s sake you even nerfed wp items, which as a whole were already weaker than CP items). Oh, he can’t have lifesteal from his passive because that’s OP. Oh, he can’t have crit damage because that’s OP. Seriously he has one of the most fun WP play STYLES but he can’t do sh-- for d–k damage wise thanks to being gutted and never given any semblance of love since. I think I can safely declare one of my old favorites DEAD, as well as the 3v3 mode in general. Speaking if which, this is exactly what I didn’t want. I wanted 5v5 to drop pretty much since I beta tested the game but didn’t want people sucking it off and never playing 3v3 again as a result. And look, now all the discussion is 5v5, everyone assumes you talk about 5v5. 5v5 5v5 5v5. Seriously I don’t give a flying f–k about 5v5 ranked, I would rather have one mode that has ranked properly working and have that perfected than another tired 5v5 3 lane slog where it doesn’t matter how good you are, if you’re being beaten in lane you just call your friends to gangbang the offending enemy and then they never f–king leave.
tl;dr Taka is nerfed into the ground and unfun to play due to scout spam. And yeah he can play CP asscannon and suicide bomb people on 5v5 but that’s not the way I want to play the character.
