The lightning strike buff was warranted, given the ease at which a hunter can dodge the ability. However, the banshee bombs have been buffed to the point where they are absolutely devastating. The velocity in which a banshee bomb travels combined with the instant detonation, furthered by the insane damage and considerable stunlock caused upon pop makes for a very deadly asset to the kraken. Combined with the undodgeable aftershock and vortex, that makes for essentially 3 undodgeable, high damaging abilities, with the exception of lightning strike.
You might say, but banshee mines can be shot, git gud bro. And I would reply that in an ideal OP rant i would agree, but these banshee bombs have very little room for counterplay. They hit for 25-30% of your health, and given their speed, they are essentially undodgeable and often times virtually impossible to see as they insta-detonate. I feel like the ability is waaaaaaaay too rewarding given the ease of use of the ability. You just aim and spam, no leading required. You can easily achieve 60% damage on a hunter in 2 seconds with the current banshee bombs. What do you, the community, think? Balanced? Underpowered? Overpowered? Please state your opinion and give evidence/an Arguement as to why you think that way.
EVIDENCE TO THE NONBELIEVERS
As you can see, there is almost little to no reaction time in which you can pop these projectiles. They whizz by ungodly fast and reward ungodly damage. Couple that with Vortex/Heavy melee (undodgeable point blank) and aftershock (undodgeable) the damage is insane and the hunters have no way to counter this, no matter how much jetpack you conserve. One must consider the damage when a kraken flings these out like a machine gun in combat. @TrickshotMcgee @niaccurshi @gef_1_man_army @MacMan @MajorLeeHyper @TheMountainThatRoars @Buckets_Sentry_Gun @TrickyMrGreen @LadieAuPair
