With the long list of buff and nerfs given in this thread I decided to post another one, this time about lovely spy mistress Deande. Now I won’t go as much in depth as I did with Whiskey on what buffs I would like to see but I will, however, point out the areas that are problematic with her.
If you guys have played a Deande in PvP and just got wrecked by her and feel, “MAN, THAT CHARACTER IS REALLY BROKEN” then I know you haven’t used her yet. It does take alot to use Deande like the page suggests, but in using her, like another known gunner that’s currently suffereing majorily in PvP, at best you get above average results. It’s not as bad as said gunner, but it’s stil bad. Here are the reasons where she lacks
Ok so I know she is suppose to be an assassin like Rath, but at the moment she only accels in one area and that’s the assassin part. Deande, by far, is the best character in the game to get a solo kill with when no one else is around. She can also help very well in assist kills. But everything else is just lack luster. She’s squishy with slow ranged, small hit boxes on her melee, and dash speed is horrid for an assasin. She is literally a mediore Rath in everything else other than the 1v1 kill, which rath can still do extremely well. Her legenary makes up alot of her problems, but 1800 shards to make a character viable is just wrong.
Now I don’t mind the squishyness as assassins aren’t meant to be meat shields, but why does she have to run so slow? I’ve never seen a Ninja (I believe that’s the idea she’s potraying) be so slow on the field. I want to say that even Miko, a support, runs faster than her. Assassins other than WF all have fast sprint speeds, while Deande is trailing behind. That’s not good for an assassian if she only makes it there when the oppoenent is pretty muh finished.
Also what’s with her ultimate? I understand the idea of it but why is it so weak? Even when you stun players (And the stun range is very small) the damage from your teammates isn’t good enough to make up for someone else’s level 5 (like thorn, or om, or just about anyone else). Also why does it take so long to charge and such a high cool down? This move needs to be address rather it be more damage, a shorter cool down. or being able to activate the ability when you want.
tl;dr Deande kinda sucks right now, I don’t mind her being squishy if she just had more run speed and a better ultimate. Hell give her something to out perform rath in other points than just 1v1 kill with no bots.
