I saw this a while back on the Steam Forums and I wonder if it gained a bit of popularity on these forums as well.
Basically it just means that if the Monster player picks Wraith, the Hunters disconnect from the match because they don’t want to play against Wraith. They consider her overpowered / anti-fun.
It was immediately frowned upon; many people didn’t understand why it was created and started throwing random balance-related arguments around about Wraith’s potential in combat.
I’m thinking of bringing it back (not really, that’s uncool). Here’s my opinion in a short sentence:
Wraith, in her current state, is overpowered in her traversal capability and is the most anti-fun experience in the game.
If I had thrown those domes a few feet in front of the Wraith instead of her exact position she would’ve turned around and escaped the other way.
I find it weird how as soon as someone mentions nerfing the Wraith people will immediately call you out as a noob and tell you to ‘git gud’, thereby completely ignoring what I’m talking about.
I am talking about her TRAVERSAL. It’s too fast and making it slower would certainly put an end to escaping domes.
Wraith’s current traversal state completely prevents getting caught by a pug team.
Now mind you, I realize the game shouldn’t be balanced around pug teams. But go tell that to Lazarus or Bucket players. Those characters could probably use another look at from the developers as well.
Wraith would of course be buffed in another way. I find Supernova the best candidate. Its duration is way too short and above all, takes multiple hits to do its full damage potential. This makes the move next to useless against for example, a Hunter in sight of Sunny’s Shield Drone.
I just had to create this topic, get it out of my system. When people talk about Goliath, Kraken and Behemoth they have always seemed rational to me but I’ll never understand the kind of people who say escaping domes so easily is balanced because Wraith’s combat potential is lackluster. There’s also a thin line between OP and anti-fun.
What I always say in pugs about the Wraith is "You either spend 20 minutes chasing it or split up for 10 seconds and get pounced, die, lose the match."
