Being 24 hours away now I’m beyond excited I recently noticed something that I would like to bring up and see what others think about this point, its not really an issue just something that may happen.
In order to win a match, you need to use your abilities correctly and in relation to whatever strategy you or your team are using. This is one of the reasons I love the game. However, for a new player, who gets completely out-played by someone using their abilities and strategy well, to them it seems as though they are just getting smashed by all these abilities and it can appear ‘OP’ to them.
I noticed this when watching GentlemanSquirrel play a round as wraith. I think he was stage 2 but all he was using was abduction and warp blast, he absolutely wrecked the hunter team. He then noticed someone in the chat room had cried how OP the wraith was. He then correctly pointed out that what he had just done is out played the other team using skill, the abduction shots he was landing were incredibly skillful and he won because of his skill not because he picked the wraith. What was really funny was he won just as quick if not quicker playing as Goliath and Wraith.
What I fear is that soon after launch this forum is going to become filled with people crying OP when really they have just been out-played, I’m hoping new players can get past this and that it doesn’t hurt the rep of the game or the community. I have even heard people say it just depends on who you pick which is obviously completely false, this game is absolutely full of skillful plays and clutch plays etc, and I really hope new players can get past it
