'Twas both a lure and a semi-genuine suggestion.

Mostly a (successful) lure.

Well now that you have me snared, two totally serious reasons why no nerf plz:

  1. When Gearbox had the bright idea of compensating for Mell’s venom loss by focusing on buffing Claw Lunge damage, they effectively forced her to risk it offensively or else be irrelevant; a Mell sitting on her Claw Lunge as an escape is a pretty sad creature in today’s game

  2. Mell has such a low total health pool that she has only two living states: full health and almost dead. The reason Mell always gets away with almost no health is because she can’t get away in any other condition. Any other BB who takes the same amount of damage is at half health and you don’t even think twice when they disengage

…Good point. I honestly see her swift movements as key to har character and I’ll say it again:
I like the way she moves

When will the next Lootpocalypse arrive, if ever?

Or will that be seen as Pay-2-Win by F2P’ers?

Great thing that they also fixed it’s wonky ass hitbox that seems to miss more consistently than it hits /s

No kidding. I go out of my way to get Claw Lunge kills now, and I curse the hitbox more than anything else. Feels good to Claw Lunge KO a mid-air enemy Mellka though.

Still not bothering with that awful alt fire melee.

I’ve played a little Thorn, and she’s so much better at doing Mell’s job that it’s ridiculous. Just as easy to go zero deaths, way more damage, way more wave clear, easy kills. I cannot understand why venom’s meager ~36DPS was considered “too much” given how far behind Mell is compared to the top dogs in this game. :disappointed: She could have her original venom back, keep her alt and primary damage buffs, and Thorn would still be stronger…

Have you ever used your Claw Lunge to escape and a mid-air Benny on low health just happens to be in the trajectory path and just explodes?

(The Red Bar Observer) #71

Claw Lunge doesn’t seem to connect with flying Benedicts, at least not for me. I’ve tried to pop them as they escape and Mell just gently bumps his wings and falls to the ground. Could be a connection thing though.

I used to take great pleasure in tagging a fleeing Benny with a venom bullet and gloating as he enjoyed his last few seconds of flight before choking and dying. I ■■■■■■■ hate how every game I play as Mell now, I’ll be guaranteed to land some clutch canister or venom bullet on a runner and feel a moment of intense unhappy regret as they regen right through it.

Her venom might be mild / but in bed, she goes wild

@lequizachris (DROOLZILLA)? I like that guy…

You should use a comma between him and Eden’s names though, or people might get confused…
