So I have only been playing Marquis for like 4 days now and I would like to say I rock as him. En zwi die is a wonderful mechanic that works amazing and I get that if you landing crit after crit your damage will crap only just about everyone else while you remain fairly safe about 80% of the time. I will say that a 25% reduction to his passive is a big change to his basic attack mechanics over all.
This kind of change drastically reduces not just his potential damage but also how well his basic attacks and passive function on a base level. It gets in to the mentality that if your not criting your not playing him right. I hate the idea that a sniper in a game like this will need to crit all the time to get good damage. Now that being said this change dose NOT go live for a week or so and I weather or not he will need to crit to play well remains to be seen. I hope this change dose not have the kind of negetive impact i fear and Marquis loses the sence of sadisfaction from landing a crit in lue of it being required for level damage.
I would hate to see a wall go up arround the sniper characters forcing you to crit to put out the same kind of damage as other easier characters.
