So it’s been a couple weeks since 5v5 dropped and I thought I would share my current views of the mode with you all. Sadly, unlike most of you all, I feel I’ve been left disappointed by 5v5. There is, in my opinion, way too much snowballing for the map. I see that once a team has an advantage, they tend to have little to no fights and just pick off towers untill the ultimate goal is accomplished and they get Blackclaw, and push for the win. Speaking of Blackclaw, the dragon is WAY to tanky. A whole team can engage on the beast and it will still be able to take one of your turrets. Turrets either need to be buffed or Claw needs to be nerfed so that his health is less. Since we are on dragons, Ghostwing is another issue. I feel like the buff is significant in the beginning, but does barley anything at late game. Some scaling needs to be introduced to keep this guy around.
Do I think this is just 3v3 with 2 extra people- no. This mode however, is leaving a bad taste in my mouth every game, as when I lose, I feel like I’m powerless to stop the enemy, and when I’m ahead, I don’t feel that a win is deserved. Some internal play changes need to be made soon, because I’m really starting to lose faith in the game as a whole, with ranked confirm led for 5v5 not sounding like a fun time for me.
