Zane is a pretty fast guy, and he teleports around, jukes enemy attacks, etc… so why does it take over a second to get the clone out? To have the shield up? Over a second again to have the riot shield in hand? To drop it back down? To pick it up again? The trailer guys knew that this stuff needs to feel snappy and responsive. Currently, the delays on these skills prevent us from doing lots of cool stuff.
Oh, and the cast animations interrupt reloads… sigh. A clone+shield zane is almost constantly throwing out the clone, the shield, picking it up… can he get some handless tech for these please? Or grow a third hand, I don’t care.
PS: what if the shield could teleport to his hand from anywhere? Picking it up is kinda awkward sometimes, you get the button prompt, but actually you’re not close enough yet. Just get rid of the issue and let him call it to his hand at will from anywhere.
