I never said it didn’t need to be nerfed, but the planned changes to the wall make it worse than Snow Globe in every way.
It was already iffy defense on some maps, namely Corpus and Grineer defenses that have upper levels (there are a few), as well as the only Void defense map where half of the enemies shoot you from above.
The only reason that ability was any good was because it was invulnerable. Frost can stack globes and reinforce them up to a million HP. They can be placed in multiple areas. True, they allow enemies through, but it’s also ridiculously cheap to cast and a recast throws enemies out of the globe. He also has 2 other reliable CC/attack abilities, something Gara utterly lacks.
Overall, I agree it could stand to be changed. However, their planned changes are absolutely retarded because it takes away just about the only unique thing about the wall.
I am all for diversity between abilities, but this just makes it SG, only with less range of coverage and less health. Hell, even more limited CC since the second a Bombard looks at it you’re gonna have 2-3 sections of the wall destroyed and shit’s just gonna walk right on through.
To top that off, it takes forever to cast any decently sized rings and is really energy hungry unless you rum with efficiency, which you didn’t have to do before because you didn’t have to recast every 30 seconds.
It’s just poorly thought out, honestly.
