I mean the main issue is simply that for SOME stupid reason gearbox decided to make this game all about constantly pinballing players with knock back, but rath is so infuriating to go up against for two reasons.
- his launcher is instant death. (Yet people complain about alanis?!). Usually due to ultimate followup but either way he just gets under you so you can’t get down and he does such insane damage you’re dead by the time you land anyway.
2). All his attacks are SPINS. meaning the jackhole doesn’t even have to actually aim his attacks like everyone else!
For comparison, I’ve been phoebe. The best basic melee damage and attack speed in the game.
Can’t do a freaking thing against rath. Launch and instant death or he’s constantly circling but unlike Phoebe, Rath doesn’t need to see what he’s attacking so he’s at a huge advantage. Can’t escape either because shes dead in exactly 1.5 seconds and it takes about 2.5 to turn and fire phase gate. Which wouldn’t matter because I’m constantly hit with slows anyway.
Like she can get a helix so her true strike does a spin that hits all around. Rath just does that by default!
This is mostly just me venting but holy crap don’t think I’ll ever bother being phoebe in PvP again.
