    Guess it's one of those bad medicine weeks in ARAM.

    I'm getting the urge to play again, but then I wonder if I'll just rejoin the same shitshow I left. Probably. So why not just learn a hero that can get away with murder in Silver like Gazlowe, Murky, or Valeera? None of those will get banned and they are all strong when left alone.

    But then...where's the fun if I'm forcing myself to play heroes I may not like that much? Winning is fun I guess. Getting out of Silver would be nice. I don't wanna play QM because fuck games without a healer or tank.

    Then I just loop back around to, maybe it's still not the right time.

    I reinstalled solely for the purpose of late night murky qms

    if you cannot find joy in fucking around with murky in qm I would not advise giving this game the time of day again

    I'm obv biased but murky, gaz, zag, are the WAY WAY more fun heroes to play.

    At lv 13 murky is a team fight monster.
    Lv 16 he's a demi god.
    At 20 he is the alpha and the omega.

    Same with gaz. You bully the hell out of your solo lane. At 10 you are a mercing god. At 20 you're a team fight goliath.

    So on and so forth.

    For posterity, one of those murky games had one of the most toxic / inting sonyas I've ever seen.

    As soon as she died to mercs she was trying to cap, at lv 2, she inted, racial slurs, etc. etc.
    The rest of the game was just pure feeding, etc..

    Bug or cache server problem

    Yeah. If you refresh the page, it fixes itself.

    Nice games @MMMig. I'm still social distancing from HotS for now, but when I return, maybe I'll just try to be a Murky/Gaz main. Give me some protips and builds for each, if you don't mind.

    Good content for new players from Grubby:

    I'm so fucking tired of Abathur as a hero. He dominates QM games and fucks up drafts. Having to account for a hero that so single-handedly warps the game around him and yet having him never actually fucking show up on the goddamn map is just infuriating.

    I just won a game against an Abathur/Sonya/Samuro comp and dealing with that level of bullshit was tilting as fuck.

    Really interesting video, points out that looking at the mini-map and quickly getting game info are part of your micro skill.

    yeah coming back to fucking around in QM Abathur fuckin' sucks to play against a lot

    even if it's not broken it just makes everything less fun to deal with

    My wishlist of BS heroes is mostly Abathur and KTZ. They're the only ones I find infuriating.

    Aba hunting is kind of fun, sometimes. I wish he'd have to spawn killable tentacles instead of hats. Or he gives the host a shield that drops the hat when the shield is gone. My personal favorite idea is he takes damage when the host does, allowing him to die.

    KTZ just needs chains to be reworked. A CC mage is a design that shouldn't exist the way it is. Remove the damage, make him a support, whatever. Just dying because my allies don't believe in sidesteps isn't fun. The whole reason for the game.

  • milk ducksmilk ducks Registered User regular
    KTZ needs a fundamental, ground-up rework. Literally a complete redesign.

  • Inquisitor77Inquisitor77 2 x Penny Arcade Fight Club Champion A fixed point in space and timeRegistered User regular
    I'd consider making Glacial Spike baseline (no quest requirement), perhaps even to the extent that the first chain always originates from it. This way KTZ becomes an area-of-denial/setup mage and his consistent damage actually comes from the rest of his kit, while his combo works more like Kerrigan's where he still requires follow-up from the rest of his team to secure most kills.

    Abathur can just straight up be deleted.

  • DibbyDibby I'll do my best! Registered User regular
    At this point I'd honestly say 100% the problem with KTZ is fucking Shadow Fissure. Take that away and you no longer have a Hero that can oneshot two Heroes at once

    But also the chain shit is fucking horrendous to play around it just feels fucking awful when you get yanked halfway across the screen into a root and you just eat shit and die.

    His other ult is arguably worse, man; super long range, casts immediately and tracks you until it lands. There's no escaping it. You can literally get a screen's length away from KTZ, but it will land, and then he throws out his Glacial Spike, Chains it, then uses the super unnecessarily long second Chain to pull your dumb rooted ass all the way back and blow you up. It's literally a guaranteed Stitches Hook that also results in a pickoff all on its own.

    Admittedly I've never seen anyone actually use Frost Blast well, but

    I will take your word for it!

    Deleting chains is acceptable to me.

  • MNC DoverMNC Dover Full-time Voice Actor Kirkland, WARegistered User regular
    While were at it, change Shadow Fissure to 30 second cooldown and get rid of the 1.5 reset on hit. Or keep it as is and make Nova's Precision Strike 20 second cooldown with a 1.5 second reset on hit.

    Not sure about now, but for a period of time in the past year ago it was pretty common. Maybe not in QM?

    Like, I'm bad at HotS. I get that, I accept that. But how are the 5 people in high Masters and allowing Fan to just roll over their bases like this?

    Cattlepillar was on the other team for this, too. He was probably tilted out of his mind once he realized that his team wouldn't rotate and was just interested in perma-fighting while split-push Greymane took all their buildings.
