First off this is more of a wake up call to the devs, so please read devs!!!
Disclaimer: I have played this game for over 1000 hours of the PC version and have friends in it who understand the game well too who I’ve talked to and agree 100% with what I’m about to say as I’ve talked balancing with them
ex: Ghost, one of the best sniper mains about Beatrix nerfs
So ever since the last update all the pub stompers have been killing everyone on the PC w/ the newly made OP characters, Beatrix and Orendi.
Beatrix: she is the meta anyone who can stop healing and silence from anywhere and dish out a high DPS is what teams that just want to win play now. As you see in the last tournament where she was the first pick in the 2 games I played of it, and gets banned in solo queue a lot too from how OP + annoying she is.
2 skills Beatrix has that take next to no skill and significantly counters
Basically Beatrix can stop healers from saving teammates since Beatrix has insane 3 and 5 second wounds and 8 sec wound ult. More importantly she makes healing not fun for a lot of people including myself since I can’t heal my team and can only watch them die as I tickle them with a green beam of light.
Solution? Nerf HP , alright seriously though 1 sec wounds un-scoped, 2 sec wounds scoped - on par with ISIC’s 1.5 sec wounds at lvl 5 so that Beatrix can effectively wound 1 person she focuses but can’t wound the whole team.
Wounds (Healing + Life Steal):
Any Healer: especially Miko + Alani
Attikus (double whammy)
Beatrix can aimbot stun you from anywhere if you’re in her line of sight. so you are at the mercy of the enemy Beatrix, meaning if she’s good then her silence with her wounds added onto it especially can easily cause you to die and you nor your healer can do a thing about it if you rely on escape mechanisms like El Dragon and Phoebe especially who need to get into the enemies faces to do some damage and use their escape mechanisms to get out.
Solution: Reduce silence duration: 1-1.5 seconds with aimbot, or 2 seconds if they take the aimbot off the skill. 3 seconds it too much since she can do it at long range as you only see it in melee characters for 3 seconds, similar to why KU had his stuns nerfed to 1 second from 2.
Silence (Escape Mechanisms + Ults):
Orendi: Go right at lvl 5 and left at lvl 6 and spam your instant pillar with no damage reduction and your ult and enjoy, nuff said
