We're working on arm shield stuff, but there were some nasty bugs that cropped up that stopped us from shipping the nerf we're aiming at (currently looking at letting excess damage bleed through to Gibby). It's coming.
They said Lobas bracelet and Gibbys arm shield are going to get changed in tge midseason patch or s9, so looks like we're going to have to wait until season 9 (or maybe not seeing as there is talk about an end of season event)
I'm usually extremely careful not to promise any dates (because gamedev is unpredictable). I'm hopeful we'll have stuff for both of those for S9, but again, no promises.
I was just wondering, is there any specific reason for removing "fast heal" attribute from Gibby tactical?
I don't think it was too OP and a nice bonus for cooperation.
He's incredibly strong, especially at highest skill levels. (Even across all skill levels, he's a very close second in winrate to Horizon; again being near the top isn't a problem, someone has to be; it's the distance between the current outliers and the rest of the field)
What about having the damage you do to his arm shield count towards your evo damage? For some reason I thought that was in the talks to.
Yup, that's in the changelist we're currently testing. Like I said, gotta fix some bugs before it's ready for ship
why was horizon ult nerf instead of tactical.all it takes is 0.81 seconds to be destroyed and she will still be called op due to her tactical
We just didn't have the time to do what we need to do to her tactical. IMO the problem is you can jump in, take a full bat, and strafe while doing so making you almost impossible to punish. That'll change, but the proper way to do that takes a little time. Sorry but game dev is slow!
Question about the Horizon nerf.
It seems that it's been decided that her main issue is her ultimate (which is getting a nerf). Does the data show this is the needed change? From what I've seen, most players complaining about Horizon have an issue with her tactical above all else. The ability to gain instant verticality, pop a battery, then land anywhere around the player seems to be too much every 15 seconds. Is there anything being looked into her regarding her tactical?
Nope! Her ult is definitely not the bigger problem. That was just the change that was ready for 8.1. Her tactical is absolutely the bigger problem, but the nerf for that wasn't ready in time for this patch.
Amazing work so far so dont take it as hard as it may sound.. If horizon has the best winrate why she only got a small. Nerf to the ult then? Why doesnt she have low profile over the likes of lifeline/wattson Edit:just seen it was the only nerf ready for this patch Nvm then but take a look to remove low profile from other non-mobile legends maybe nerfing kits Cheers wish every game had such comms and devs
We weren't ready with the big nerf for Horizon, so we shipped what he had first. Bigger nerf coming soon, hopefully S9, but no guarantees.
Surely Horizon could have Low Profile on her until your permanent change for her tactical is ready?
It was done to Pathfinder, where Low-Profile hit, then a bunch of nerfs/changes to balance him came out before removing Low-Profile.
Not sure how I feel about putting low profile on a legend for a patch cycle or two. Feels very bandaid-y? And while she's OP, she's not THAT bad. Not as bad as Wraith at her worst ;P
