I just had a match where the opponent was backdooring with ISIC… While I like backdooring, I think ISIC backdooring is just crap.
Why ? Well take a look at the other characters who can backdoor :
-Caldarius : low health, moderate damage output, moderate accuracy, quick and small.
-Deande : low health, moderate damage output, bad accuracy with her secondary fire (it’s hard to take down the trumper turret with her, for example), somewhat quick and small.
-Thorn : only at level 7, moderate health, no shield, high damage output, high accuracy, quick and small.
-Mellka : moderate health, no shield, low to moderate damage output, moderate accuracy, quick and small.
-Orendi : only at level 3 (with a good timing), low health, moderate to high damage output, moderate accuracy, quick and small.
-Attikus : high health, high damage output but only at close range, slow and big.
-Benedict : moderate health, high damage output, good accuracy, somewhat slow and big.
-Kleese : moderate health, low to high damage output (with his charged shot), good accuracy, slow and big.
And ISIC : high health, high damage output, good accuracy, slow and big… But he can activate his wards to protect himself and go quickly through the map with his dash.
My point is, most of them are “feeble” characters that emphasize on speed. With most of them, you take 2 or 3 sentry sniper shots and you’re dead. If it’s not the case, then you have slow characters with a big hitbox like Kleese or Attikus. The major problem with ISIC is his wards, they make him nearly invicible for some time so he can escape without taking any damage and backdoor again after that. Moreover, his dash is too quickly. For example, you’re a sitting duck if you try to escape with Kleese or Benedict but not with ISIC because he can instantly teleport himself near his sentry.
I really have no problem with backdooring, it’s just ISIC doing it seems somewhat broken…
