Oh Ernest, where have you been all my Battleborn life? I thought I had found my true love when I played and mastered Alani. I thought I was “doing awesome” when I’d play as Ambra and average 6-3-10 (kill-death-assist). But alas, I was so, so wrong. YOU are the character I was meant to be, with your squishy pink cheeks, tiny-winged jump, and adorable southern drawl.
I played you for the first time last night on a whim in PvP for lore (thank you to the Toby for playing as Toby), and somehow I just knew how to play you. You fit so naturally to me. You are the Caldarius to my Rath, the Oscar Mike to my Montana, the Boldur to my Thorn. I went 10-2-20 in our first game, 5 of the kills being some unfortunate Galilea who couldn’t possibly have know the relationship we have together. Never before have I had so much fun, finding myself cackling Orendi-style “Run Galilea, ruuuun!” as I shot grenades at her retreating figure.
Thank you Ernest, for coming in to my life and confirming there is at least one character who I get, who I can truly understand, and who I don’t have to work against my natural playing style to get to full potential. I’m greatly looking forward to our time together.
