I have always been hard stuck at tier 4, but now with the revolutionary Tension Bow, I can finally screw over the elo of even the toughest of idiot tier 10 players that actually want to try and use comps that don’t want to abuse one specific item!!! Thanks, SEMC!!! The game’s never been easier for meta slaves!!! I never liked the although flawed, but diverse, overall balanced, and actually strategic meta we had before. I love this new meta with one item determining success and defeat with 0 counter building options because you nerfed the one thing that could potentially counter it HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! In fact, I never liked the fact that I got a Sorrowblade early on, so I really appreciate the changes to Tension Bow to allow it to scale, so I can have a little over 2 Sorrowblades without having to spend that much gold and use it to full potential even into the late game! I love it when I have 0 counters!!! This is the best meta in the game’s lifespan!!! Loving it so much right now!!! Who needs to actually get good at the game when you can let one item do it for you!!! (Seriously tho TB is the only problem. Most of the other changes are fine, but delete TB…please…even pre-buff TB would have been abused by Gwen due to the defense changes, but at least only certain heroes would abuse it…not every hero with a quick way to engage like Ardan…)
I have never once said this before, but with how the meta is right now, I actually don’t want to play (My only incentive is improving for competitive play rn). It only infuriates me due to the fact that being good does not matter anymore. The overall global changes did not make the game noob friendly. TB did. Just ONE item is ruining the game. Not even SM BP made me feel the way I feel right now. At least with that it was just a core to wp carries…not THE win condition. Games literally come down to who can abuse TB the best at this point. CP for the most part does not matter, skill is thrown out the window cause I had a match against a tea we were destroying, but lost cause their Krul and someone else got their Bows and insta killed everyone, and captains feel god awful cause support just…don’t feel impactful unless butt buddying with a side laner to rack up kills (Yeah remember when everyone was sick of the bot lane + jungle meta?) This is downright the WORST meta I have ever experienced since my 3 years of playing VG and we had some pretty bad ones (Cough cough Brokefeather before draft came out) SEMC should just revert TB, then nerf pre-buff TB and see how the meta shapes up. That ONE item is shaping the meta more than any game asset should ever do.
