So, I always see people complaining on here about Lazarus. “He’s so bad”, “why would you ever play him?”, “Lazarus? Alright gg”. Has it ever occurred to you people complaining about Laz that he’s not the problem? You just don’t understand how to play with a Lazarus.
For example, in the game I just played, I picked Laz (because I haven’t played him in a while). I was doing fine, rezzing my teammates as necessary, staying thoroughly away from the monster. The monster was focusing me, because he knew what he was doing, but I consistently stayed away from him with my cloak and just normal juking. My team, however, had clearly never played with or as Lazarus before. The Hank was constantly shielding me while cloaked, just so the monster could get a heads up on where I was. The Maggie decided she should stay close to me, because it’s always a good idea to give the monster a nice juicy 2-person target, right? She also continually tried to revive people by hand, so that even if I was cloaked rezzing someone the monster would see her and attack us anyways. The Markov might have been the only person who knew how to play with a Lazarus, because he was always very far from me, but at the same time he probably should’ve closed the gap whenever the monster was wailing on me to do a little damage, which he rarely did.
I’m not saying everyone is this bad when it comes to having a Lazarus on your team, normally it’s only one person that doesn’t understand what’s going on, but maybe all you people on here just don’t know how to play with a Lazarus. He’s certainly not better than Caira, Caira is the shit, but he’s absolutely not an “instant loss”, he’s actually quite good if you’re not a complete idiot, because constantly having no strikes is never a bad thing.
