No idea why you think this will cause people to put down the pitchfork. This is like the most pitchforky role you could have.

I'll make a thread and let you all give me the pitch forks soon.

What if when the drone is left out, some area in front of the camera is "cloaked" by the drone? When scanned, the drone itself would still be shown so opposing teams know there may be a team in that area but the team itself wouldn't be tracked. Drones make noise and can be shot down so there's still counter play to it.

The cloaked area could have some visible indication to the Crypto team so players know where they can and cannot be tracked.

Since you are suggesting changes to the drone, are we talking about the passive, or just adding anti-scan to the character in general? If we are talking about the latter (just adding anti-scan), we are starting a whole new discussion and the considerations and variables we need to discuss

I read all your comments in this thread, and I gotta say it's good to see some solid thought given to this. For the most part, I agree with you. Passive abilities should not hard counter other legend's input based abilities, and "x is underpowered" isn't an argument for "giving bad abilities to x".
 
That said, I feel there is a need for a hard counter to exist against combat intel legends as such. There are very few meta abilities in the game that have zero hard counter. AOE damage dealers, defensive zoning tools, personal mobility abilities, visual obfuscation tools, they all have a counter. Combat intel legends don't have that.
 
Abilities with no counter are always borderline OP. Caustic Nox Grenade is a damage tick away from being OP. Crypto's drone needs to be loud, big and weak to create a window-to-counter against EMP. I don't see why there couldn't be a legend that created an anti-scan AOE of some sort as an ability. Kind of a counterpart to Wa...

I don't see why there couldn't be a legend that created an anti-scan AOE of some sort as an ability.

You would be correct on that assumption; We still need to consider if that would be degenerate in some way; and that the gameplay involving 'creating a fog of war' isn't just 'smokes' gameplay. But conceptually, there isn't a reason to say a character can't have a specific niche, in fact, I think it's a good thing. Creates a strong character identity.

I don't want to jump into that conversation, but that would be an argument to nerfing/constraining scans systematically. I'm...

There was another suggestion to make a survival item that counters scanning. What do you think about that?

I don't understand all the desires for anti scan, feels like you are all just asking for a nerf on scanning. Is that correct?

If this counts as your department, I have been having lots of stuttering on the xbox one s, and these are about 1.5 second stutters.

We know. I've been poking that ticket nonstop.

I agree but at the same time there is absolutely no counter to bloodhounds scan… so in effect this crypto passive is hard countering an ability that doesn’t have a counter at all.

That's a tactic, not a passive...?

While this is thematic, I am _Personally_ not a fan, because by existing, Cryto would be hard countering and introducing unreliability to other characters' ability with no counterplay or action required by said player. That's lame and not interesting;

They don't automate their replies, though they do use templates in some cases to make sure the information provided to others in the same situation is consistent.

That is to say, those are always read and reviewed by an actual person, there may just be a limit on what can be shared, especially if they've repeatedly come to the same conclusion after multiple reviews. Mako.png

That's an Ultimate, not a Passive.

Thanks for your input. Curious about your thoughts on this counterpoint.

Bloodhound innately counters Bangalore, as an example of hard counters that are already in the game.

He has to push the button in response to your button... He doesn't counter you simply by existing. Also, that's a tactic; Considerations are way different at that point :P

But the entire legend of revenant was made to REMOVE other characters abilities. I do agree with you in a way though, this is certainly different. But that doesn't make the idea or premise bad. Possible it could give him shorter scanned times? A little bit of brainstorming could possibly make this work.

Revenant's passive is not his silence?

Also what would be a good reason to change a character if they weren't under/over powered...?

Degenerate gameplay patterns.

I'm not sure what happened to the email. It's possible it ended up in your spam or junk folders. Regardless, you'll need to dispute the ban with Terms of Service to see if it can be overturned.
