My main issue with balance right now is that at high level play, any monster but Kraken is a glorified punching bag, but in pubs it’s just stompity stomp stomp. Monsters in general need buffs (except Kraken, f*** him) and there are still problem areas.
Goliath is fine, but he should benefit from monster buffs in general.
Kraken is OP. Either buff every monster up to that or nerf him down, you choose.
Wraith is just patchy. She’s weak with one essentially useless ability that pisses people off.
Behemoth is just…Wow. Poor, poor Behemoth. The most fun for everyone involved but the weakest. Please buff the poor guy. I feel like a passive, permanent DR effect is necessary- sure he has more health, but he’s so FAT that he takes a TONNE of damage. At least 10-15%.
Maggie is fine. Val is prettymuch as good as she’ll ever be. Markov, people seem to think he’s ok so whatever. Hank is Hank.
Griffin is fine, Bucket is a travesty of the Support class, Hyde needs major nerfs- @ToiletWraith agrees- JUST KIDDING, Hyde is perfect. Lazarus is kind of fundamentally flawed but if we aren’t careful with the buffs I feel like he’ll be too powerful.
Parnell is gorgeous as is, Caira is perfect, Cabot’s railcannon needs a buff but otherwise he’s as good as he’ll ever be with that kit and Abe…I don’t know. I think the dart needs a bit of strength back.
Torvald is pathetic, seriously. Slim is the best Medic in the game right now. I won’t even voice my thoughts on Sunny. Crow’s CC is weak but apart from that glorious.
And Lennox is perfectly done.
The issue with balance comes not from singlular characters but from certain combinations. Slim + Hank + Lennox makes for nearly impenetrable defence unless you fight them in a bad spot, which won’t happen if they’re smart, and Lennox can rack up some veeeeery nice damage. Griffin + Sunny + Val = I’m sorry were you trying to run away? That’s cute. So on so forth.
As for monsters, nerf AS for the love of god. At least give it a bigger CD, it’s so fast to recharge right now. Apart from Kraken, monsters in general need buffs.
Also, Daisy needs to lose weight.
Sorry for the wall of text.
