@emprdiamond and I have a friend that gets really, reaaaaaaaaaaalllly salty whenever he’s a squishy, against Benedict. It gets to the point where he will leave the party and play another game. It doesn’t matter if you try to reason with him. To an extent, Brian here doesn’t like Benny much either, but I’ve never seen ANYONE get as mad at a character as our friend does. I mean, I think Boldur is the most broken, overpowered character in the history of this game, yet I still don’t get that mad - buuuuuuut, that’s beside the point.
My question is: do YOU think Benedict is overpowered? Benedict mains and Benedict haters, please try and keep your bias to a minimum. PLEASE. I want no part in a balance discussion where opinions are considered facts.
I myself think Benny can be countered. If I were to change something about him (outside those dumpy helix choices that every character has to deal with), it’d be to buff Rocket damage by 5 to 7.5% and reduce duration of Hawkeye by 1 second, to make him a little bit more reliant on his primary attack rather than a homing skill. Heh. Homing skill sounds like an oxymoron.
