It’s kind of a running gag to cry OP/UP for everything around here, but jokes aside, what do you think is OP/UP and why? For example Lazarus is supremely powerful with a specialized team, in my opinion, but he sucks with a regular team. Does this make him UP or “niche?” And for another, Caira does well in all situations- sort of a jack of all trades- so is she OP, or just reliable/good?
Bear in mind that I’m trying to get a good idea of what the community considers unbalanced. This is not a thread for arguing balance. We can do that elsewhere. This is for stating your opinions and explaining them.
My own thoughts:
Markov is worthless because against a decent Monster he can’t do well in any situation. Mines are too easily avoided/destroyed and don’t do enough damage to be of any worth, his LG is pathetic in range and damage and the AR is his only good weapon.
I feel like Slim is too weak because he has to put himself in harm’s reach- read: TWO FEET FROM THE MONSTER- to get decent healing out, and then his healing is too weak, his self healing is bad and ruined by knockback- read: Every attack the Monster has -and is healing has terrible range.
I think Crow is sub-par because his CC sacrifices the hard, dead stop effect of poons and tha blanket, constant and easy application of Abe’s Nades. Literally the worst of both worlds.
Sunny is too powerful, in my opinion, because she the Jetpack Booster is horrendously good- even post patch- and lets you stay on any monster’s tail effectively. Add that to the fact that she can shield AND boost during combat, making it very hard to get downs, and throw in the excellent damage of the Mininuke, and you have an issue.
Kraken is too powerful at the moment, not only because of his CC bugs, but because with his flight and spammable auto-attack plasma bolts and high burst ranged abilities, he can deal a tonne of damage, deny area, mitigate Hunter damage, render abilities useless and deny revives from miles away at little to no risk to himself.
