There has been an unannouced SAW nerf for 3 patches


#1

And that is the slow duration on his B. It used to be 2s/2s/2s/2s/2.5s but now it drops down to a flat 0.4s at all ranks. GG. You just nerf the weakest hero in the game.


#2

I didnt check , but if it happened i think its expected , because they removed or nerfed the AOE slow in all carries like gwen and bf , and made frostburn for damage abilities only , SAW B slow in 5v5 probably tested and found broken .


#3

Nah it ain’t. The ability has a 15s cooldown with WP and a minimum CD of 8.25s with CP. It ain’t that short for a nerf and to be honest no one is blinded enough to not see that SAW is unviable.


#4

More complaining because your potato main is rubbish, he is on the easiest hero’s to counter and frankly is never ever going to be viable in 5v5 b cause he is

A - Too damn slow o matter
B - Takes to long to reach his peak DMG
C - Has to many counters

Seriously just learn anew hero, sass a horrible hero to main and goes someway o explains why you can get out of tier 7.


#5

Yep. He’s rubbish in normie mode but in blitzkrieg he’s a god. Btw I have mained Baron too so I have no issues.
Btw, you’re really mean.


#6

It’s just your always complaint about:

A - can’t rank
B - team mates
C - saw nerfs

They’re all linked. You never accept that maybe you might need to improve certain areas of your game.


#7

Duh how much I try I can’t get up. I can get a good KDA with other heroes but without teammates I’m nothing. I can be trash sometimes and I don’t deny that. Hell my name says it out loud.


#8

This thread derailed real quick. Ok


#9

Yeah. Needs someone to close it.


#10

Meanwhile i spammed saw to t9 in 5v5. I had like a 80% win rate lmao. If u know how to abuse saw in 5v5, hes crazy. His objective damage is the best.


#11

Excuse me, when he was weak?
This text won’t be blurred


#12

Saw is weak? LMAO.
Just make a team with 2 bruisers, 1 tank captain, 1 control mage + SAW. Do nothing except help SAW pushes, ensure SAW’s farm. WIN!

P/s: try to apply current LOL tactics, jungler let SAW takes all the minions and jungle camps. Work extremely well.
Wanna see a stronger SAW? MAKE A 5 PEOPLE PREMADE TEAM…


#13

Yall can complain about saw all u want, hes getting a rework whether you like it or not. :slight_smile:

You guys are smart enough to know how to play a saw but when u soloq and end up getting a lone saw instalocker, many will agree that they wont change their hero choice to benefit saw. Hence the rework

edit: its takes alot of resources to help a saw out compared to other carrys


#14

h y p e r c a r r i e s
also, hes probably not getting a rework… it’d take too many resources away from a new hero and the next update…


#15

well whatever change it its, its going to be big according to how nivmett worded it


#16

Guess you never played CP Saw then.
I have a better idea. Delete Saw and everyone will be happy.


#17

I asked Niv. Not the next patch but it will take a few patches to work on that. He has to balance between reality (I brought up the real life weapons) and fantasy to make his rework so this is long.


#18

Sorry but tbh, I’ve played SAW for like 300-350-400h now and his reign is over. The 3.0 is over. You can’t spam SAW anymore. Now with Celeste, Samuel, Skaarf being super strong, the release of hyper-CC heroes and the changes to turrets, you can’t soloq SAW.
Ps: I only soloq 'cause I don’t have anyone trustworthy to party up with.


#19

Niv does balance, he doesnt do reworks…


#20

His team not himself. You know, sometimes changing the numbers won’t work. You have to change the whole mechanic of things. That’s kinda beyond him for a bit.
