    Yeah she's the biggest pain in my ass lately, much worse than Aurora or Murdock ever were for me. At least I didn't have to worry about Dock going super Saiyan with a beefy splitting projectile every time I got within melee range.

    Game just taking up space on my hard drive but I had to comment on this new character. I made the exact same character a few weeks ago for a pathfinder game.

    Played two games w/ Shinbi - lost both but she's fun to play.

    On a sidenote, I always say I'm not gonna play on new hero day and I always end up doing it. For whatever reason it's like the scrubs are in super full force. I get a Sev who didn't build stacks and doubled up in offlane instead of playing support like he said he would. Even with all that, we have a chance to win the game - all our Greystone has to do is group with us to siege mid. The other team were down a man due to a bug so we had a 5v4 advantage - the only reason we were able to come back. Instead he goes left, making the fight even and the other team were clearly better than mine.

    But my Shinbi went 10/3/7 that game! Could've had more kills but still need to get the hang of sniping with the wolves while chasing. I don't feel like she OP or weak, they did a great job keeping her balanced.

    Yeah people were crying that she wouldn't fit because she has no CC but she's one of the biggest bullies in the game with that kit right now. Her only hard counter is Greystone because he requires so much damn mana to put down that's it isn't even worth fighting him I find.

    Nuking people out of view with her ult and sniping peope with the wolves when they want to get greedy is super fun. She is damn strong late game.

    I love using her ult on Howie when he tries to escape with his ult. So, so satisfying. Same with Gideon and his teleport.

    What I love is that people don't know how fucked her dash is yet.

    By mid to late game it does +300 and can be done twice in one cast, so that's a 600 damage nuke, plus a few hundred more damage since you're gonna want to have the circle popped as well. That's more than most ults and is only like 80 points of mana, in a dash.

    And that itself is +3 stacks at least, which do around +150 each themselves.

    I've been obliterating peope with her so far, just got out of a 12-3 game.

    I've been having a tough time with matchmaking the last few days. 8-game losing streak right now. Getting teamed with folks who literally don't know understand anything about grouping, target prioritization, etc. It's been like trying to herd rabbits. I'm taking a break for a bit. The frustration levels were off the charts last night.

    I do love me some Shinbi though.

    Matchmaking is so disgusting that's what turns me off the game. 8-9 game losing streak. Tons of games with people using default decks. Ask these guys wtf they're doing & I either get a response in Spanish I don't understand, or like yesterday where a guy legit told me to give him a break because he just started TWO DAYS AGO.

    That's always been my complaint, if matchmaking is the problem that's the main thing that needs to be looked at, I could've waited on Shinbi & Elsa if matchmaking was getting fixed.

    Wanted to see what you guys were talking about with Sparrow in solo queue.....sweet jesus.

    Yea, I don't know what happened. I'd say the last week or so, the matchmaking has been extra bad. Agora isn't official, but just to illustrate - I was at 1460 and was doing just fine. Working my way to that Platinum League. Then it started. I'm at 1370 now. It's literally like whatever can go wrong does wrong. Either it's a messed up team comp, a feeding Greystone (0-5-1 @ 21mins and was playing SAFE LANE), etc. I had double the amount of wins as one person had total games played!

    I wouldn't be surprised if sooner than later, Epic reveals they had a MM server bug or reset their internal rankings or something similar. This is what makes normal people toxic.

    Never been big on Serath. Something about her just doesn't click with me.

    Yea, she looks pretty dope. I haven't played PVP in a good month and change due to matchmaking frustrations. Probably come back when they drop the map changes on Tuesday.

    EDIT: Make that Thursday. No way I'm going back in PVP on new hero day. Nope, nope, nope.

    She's not meant for midlane though. Her wave clear is trash.

    Way better offlane harassing the carry.

    I haven't played Paragon PVP in at least 2 months. Got frustrated with the playerbase learning the game so slowly. I'm still keeping tabs on things and will probably get back into it after I clear a bit of backlog or significant enough changes are made to make me hop back in.

    I'm probably one of the players that pissed you off. My one issue is that it's a card based system. If you don't know how to build a balanced deck that works correctly, you're not really gonna do anything in the game.

    Epic has admitted that the card system has issues and they’ve been working on a revamp. However, I don’t feel that the issue that I believe is the core of what’s bugging me - it’s bad decision making. The one thing that frustrates me the most is the lack of common sense. People doing the same thing over and over to negative results and continuing to do it. Things didn’t get better over time and it got to the point where I was winning games and still pissed off.

    Paragon is like 80% decision making. The technical ability required to play Paragon isn’t very demanding - it’s mainly focused on reading the map, reading situations, digesting information and making the best decision possible. When teammates consistently displayed the lack of ability to make good decisions, I knew it was time to take a break. I can’t count how many times defeat was snatched from the jaws of victory b/c of teammates lacking fundamental understanding of the weight of their decisions.

    I DO NOT blame them. Paragon’s playerbase in general is new to MOBAs, so I get it. I’m just not gonna waste my time while the playerbase catches up.

    What's there to rage about?

    He's actually pretty balanced.

    The only questionable thing In his kit is the fact that his ult isn't a true 1v1.
