Have you guys really played Meteor Goliath then regular Goliath then back, alternatively for like 5+ games? I know I have and heck, Meteor Goliath’s rock throw is like a pebble compared to Regular Gol’s massive boulder. Against teams with constant healing such as Rogue Val or even Tech Sgt Hank, Meteor Gol’s damage is mitigated by a much larger percentage than a regular Goliath’s. Meteor Goliath gets cockblocked on his damage easily easily because of his low burst combined with the fact that most forms of damage mitigation (heals/shields) will render his measly DoT useless. Sure Meteor would do better against a team with Cabot/Kala and Caira/Emet, but that does not makes him overpowered compared to regular Goliath. In fact I would say that I’d take regular Goliath against an unknown hunter lineup just because regular Goliath is much more reliable.
The extra range on leap smash and charge are marginally useful in situations where you need to run from hunters after a dome expires. If you’re fighting in the right areas of the map (enclosed chokes, caves) the extra range on these skills hardly make a big difference.
Also remember that Meteor’s DoT does not stack, meaning if u chain abilities on one hunter, you’re merely refreshing the DoT on him with each consecutive ability, which yet again, reduces his damage efficiency by a large amount.
