    Wait... So according to this... Why exactly is ronin absolutely fine the way he is?

    They're not looking at older Champs with these revisions.

    I'm confused about duration and ability accuracy changes. That's for his armor breaks right? Mine is already showing 5% in description

    @Kabam Miike can you please ask the person who made the graphs to work on resolution and clarity of text. ;) resolution is awful and can hardly read text. D- for presentation. Overall appreciate what you are trying to do.
  • Okay maybe I'm missing something, probably am, where does it show how he's getting better attack at low or one charges? Everything I'm seeing is a reduction in stats. Thanks to whoever can explain that to me..lol

    Although his Heavy Attack Armor Breaks aren't as potent as they used to be, they last longer, and you have a higher chance to place them. So you can do more damage at the beginning of his Ramp Up because of how many you can place.

    What I don’t understand is comparing him to Cap, Hyperion and ronin. Why no Corvus and ghost? Also are you comparing combo 999 aegon?

    To be honest, those Champions are already doing too much Damage. We're not out here to make more Champions that are as game breaking as those two.
    - why do you provide ZERO data from AWo/AWd, Act 6, Variants, AQ, etc for Cull when you have it for EVERY other champion you are "rebalancing"? I will tell you... HE DOESN'T GET USED OUTSIDE OF RoL much!

    This is just plain silly. Congratulations for using 4* based content that is how many years old to down tune a character with little to no up tune to a frankly messed up character with the number of "tweaks" he has already gone through.

    I will be happy to sell him off and wish I could do more than that, but alas, only Kabam can take back units for fraud.

    No utility. No power gain. No power control. No heal. No heal block/nullify. No immunities. Low block proficiency. Terrible at AWd. All he literally has is damage, and that is not enough, as can be seen by the continued use of Corvus, CMM, Medusa, Hyperion, etc for Cosmics. I can count the number of times I have seen Cull be used on offense and defense in AW combined on one hand since his release.

    Some sort of utility should have been added or else you are just ripping off your customer base.
    There's literally a graphic comparing his dps in act 6 to other champs.
    One generic graph that does not show much, compared to the other champions. Nothing about the other game modes at all. Nothing about item usage per quest per use averages for comparison.

    Cull might do 2x the damage on the final fights where he is ramped up, but during the first 3-4 fights, if he uses 40 times the resources, is he good? Any fight series that I can do with my Cull takes items, whereas I can solo the same series with CMM, Corvus, or Hyperion with no item usage.

    Is it possible to increase his block proficiency? It's absolutely horrendous, I think it's only fair to do that. Maybe boost it up to 63 to 67% instead of the 54% now.

    We're not going to do that at this time, but instead chose to increase the amount of Damage he can do with 0 Charges, so he can finish those fights where he's not very ramped up a little quicker.

    While some users take more Damage with Cull because of blocking, our data shows that the more skilled you are with him, the less and less this is a factor.
    Well it was a trade off with take damage with block and the deal damage now he only takes damage with block, rebalance means you should have also give him back something you only neefed him

    Can you clear something up.

    Are his favors getting less duration or just the armor breaks based off of his favors?

    There should be a balance, like Kabam is trying to achieve. High damage comes at a risk of high loss - utility loss, low health, higher damage taken, etc.

    This is just taking a bat to one side of the equation.
