Thoughts about kinetic this patch

How does everyone feel about Kinetic this patch? In higher tiers he is real strong, almost a 80% win pick. Why has SEMC decided to buff her this patch, knowing that her win rate has been extremely high?
Does anyone has a way to counter her?

Just curios, where are you getting this win rate? Extremely broken heroes have at most had a 62% WR, they have always been hotfixed. I frankly don’t believe an 80% would exist, especially when she does seem that op.

It was just observations in higher ranks, out of 10 matches with Kinetic, 8 of them would result in her win.

She seems op and me too can’t understand the reasoning behind the buff. That being said she isn’t broken and I doubt she even has a win rate higher than 55%.

That’s a very low sample size to take any conclusion out of it.


Omg, it’s an observation, not a full blown longitudinal study. She’s strong, that’s my 2 sense. From what can you conclude she’s OP then?

She is really strong this patch. I would not say brokenly OP, but defo S tier and possibly the strongest bot laner currently (in skilled hands ofc).

Her massive B nerf ultimately sealed the her fate for being OP for many patches.

That said, I dont believe shes that broken since the nerfs made her more vulnerable to dive and cc.

Kinetic op? I don’t think so. I can still counter her with malene…

No more API stats anymore. It’s all about the FEELS FAM.


Having counters =/= being balanced.

The reasoning behind the buff is that there is no reasoning.

TBH she was decent before the buffs in skilled hands, but was not picked that much because she is harder to be played good vs someone like kestrel/gwen/kaine. Otherwise when played good she was defo up there. Right now she is better in semi skilled hands, but really deadly when someone good with her plays her.

And i dont feel so gud
