Hi,

 

I have to admit i really dont understand why Electrified Net Arrow, Stalker Zapp and taunts should be banned 🙂

 

Thank you !

Electrified net arrow: -jump powers currently have no counter-play. It's possible to permanently prevent one (or several) players from jumping. With things like /trick arrow (non blaster version), or even /devices, this capability, while still annoying and impossible to counter, comes at a cost - by running these things you're sacrificing damage, survivability, and other utility to keep people grounded. These sets also lean heavily on their -jump powers, and there'd be no reason to run them otherwise. Conversely, /Tactical Arrow on blasters, is already a top performing set without the use of electrified net arrow, and from what we saw in earlier KBs on the server when it wasn't banned, matches devolve into 3 people on each team spamming electrified net arrow without consequence between spikes. It's borderline broken and just makes the game really unenjoyable.

 

Stalker Zapp: Ranged attack that can be fired from complete safety which does comparable damage to an AS. Not much else to say on that one. GPB is also suspect, but at least it's melee I guess, lol.

 

Taunt:  It's possible to completely lock someone down with this power, with minimal effort. The risk/reward just isn't there, and there's no counter-play. No matter how good a player is, no matter what that player does, if you just follow him spamming taunt, you can limit your target's offensive contribution to zero. You're typically stacking anywhere from 200-300% -range on the person you're taunting, and you're forcing him to target an un-killable character for as long as you do this. It's been pretty hideously broken since live, but even more so now with the increased -range, and the advent of animation cancels. Not only is it objectively the most broken power on this list, but the prospect of people taking time out of their day to show up to an event, then being perma-taunted for entire matches is something I'd like to avoid. It's pretty miserable to play against.

Liedown should be banned, lemme add that. Crey Pistol is fine. Harder to enforce but it is doable if you use demo logs I think.

as far as i can undestand for elect net arrow (that i love and abuse) :

 

- Stalkers snipers are the only strong RANGE response to the horde of blasters for a mélée burst AT as stalkers.

 

- Sure that taunts powers with -range are extremly strong but, IMHO, i love this for giving a strong tool for mélée class in team fight.

I understand that Events are not easy to balance.

But As i see it, this event will be Jumpin' Range vs Jumpin' Range 🙂

 

Have fun 🙂

Playing against taunt is one of the most miserable things in pvp. You are taken out of the game for 10 mins, no counterplay, no nothing. Breaking LOS rarely does anything(on some maps it's impossible) and even if you do, you still have 2-3 -range debuffs stacked on you. May as well bring back perma caging while we're at it if we're gonna allow taunt lol.

We could say the same for "4 or 5" holds blaster builds toying with mélée AT.

 

i can understand that for scrappers (and i love my confront lol) cause they kinda have burst but i think that banning 100% Taunt just completly ban Brutes and Tankers.

 

If devs could change the Taunt -range to be non stackable, maybe.

 

Well, this is not the thread to debate about this, it's a 4 men tournament after all, OP cannot allow some options.

 

Have fun 🙂

but I’m mostly in agreement. Though, having seen certain taunt players (especially one whose name starts with Web), there is at least a measure of positioning skill required to taunt properly. It’s a super low bar, but there are some really short people out there.

 

The -range might also have some interesting interactions with jaunt and we really shouldn’t be aiming to increase mortality in a game with very few mitigation strategies.

1. Holds don’t matter that much on blasters. They’re kind of a liability in team settings.

 

2. Scrappers probably do less damage than tanks and brutes in most 8v8 settings.

so why not ban any build with more than 2 holds ? 🙂 to be completly and violently honnest, the way i read the "rules", makes me think at a "Kings Blasters and their Empath court" go to their hunting party 🙂

 

Why not, 4 ranged guys jumping everywhere can eventually be fun.

 

 

Sort of flea circus.

Okay dude, go read up the rules. It's 4-man teams paired into 8v8 setups.

 

Why are you so concerned with the number of holds? Holds don't stack anymore, this isn't PVE.
