View Full Version : Maybe explains the hate against certain Heroes...

...and this is not meant as a cry for nerf in any way.

I don't recall which game designer said it, but one thing that draws people to games is when they feel they have a chance at winning, even when the odds are stacked against them.

What people absolutely loathe is when control is taken away from them, thereby negating any chance they may have had.

I think that's why there's so much hate against PKs (the triple jab), the Valk (the sweeplock combo) and now the Centurion (knockdown and wait to be jumped) and Shinobi (get over here and just take it for a while).

Those few seconds of absolute powerlessness just don't sit well with many people. Me included, it leaves me too much time to just scream at my screen and nothing else.

Again, not a cry for nerf, at best an appeal to the Devs to consider this in coming up with tweaks, but mostly an appeal to take this into account for the next batch of heroes.

Anyway, them's my 2cents.
