With the recent ESL slim ban, my team has had to switch characters. The one they were most adamant about was Val. I argued strongly against that, saying that Val doesn’t have the self-preservation ability to work well against a good monster unless we also ran with sunny and Griffin as well. They argued that the heal burst, hank shields, and kiting would be enough to keep her alive, and I feel that this just not the case. They’ve only beaten me once with Val and one of those times they had sunny and the other they had sunny and Griffin. They also lost the only other serious game they played with Val, but this was still not enough to convince them. So I just want everyone’s opinion on Val’s viability against good monsters and hopefully someone who knows how to make a poll will do so.
-Val is a good medic for high level games
-Val is a good medic for high level games, but only with sunny and Griffin
-Val is a bad medic for high level play
