So @lolattheseforums and I were talking about characters and how they have changed over the course of the game and that some of the nerfs/buffs actually match up with their lore. Here are some examples but there may be more.
Alani: in one of her lore’s she defeated several Silent Sisters by herself but now spends a great deal of time in the isolation tank on Nova. This is like when Alani first came out she was known for being able to take on several enemies at once with ease, but after her nerfs she is a rare pick and spends more time aboard Nova, alone and not out with the other battleborn in combat.
Kelvin: Kelvin was missing something to bind to and without it he wasn’t actually whole. It wasn’t until Miko and Phoebe helped him find an Aztanti relic to bind to that he could maintain shape. This is like when they took away Kelvin’s 2 second stun. He was just missing something. And when they returned it, he felt whole again.
Miko: Miko used to be part of an entire planet like organism. Now they are much fewer and weaker being just a piece of that. Miko used to be god like in early life of the game and might as well have been as hard to kill as a planet. Now Miko is much weaker but still capable.
El Dragon: Lorewise, Dragon was the undisputed champ of wrestling and known for glory in the ring. Then his arms were ripped off. After that he could no longer fight in the ring and lost a lot of his former glory. It is very similar to his fall from glory after his massive nerfs. He used to be a champ, now… not so much.
ISIC: So ISIC was powerful enough to destroy the entire universe and now is kept on a tight leash by Kleese and the other battleborn. ISIC used to be godlike unkillable, dominating the battlefield. Now he’s only good if the entire team is there to support him and back him up.
Galilea: Galilea is slowly dying from her corruption from her incomplete sustainment. Gradually getting weaker but since she is tough as nails, she is still doing well. Galilea has been nerfed so many times, gradually getting weaker and weaker but is still doing well despite that.
Those are the ones I found with lolattheseforums. Any that you think we missed?
