    I know one thing it's really growing on me

    So all those people who said give it time, he will shine, people are quick to judge without trying him out. It's been almost a month now. Come to me with his best playstyle, the matchups he shines in that makes him a sustainable reliable counter. Else, agree this rework put him in no man's land. I'd also like it if the people disagreeing actually come up with a concrete argument rather than just tap a button

    I am in the “he’s not quite good enough camp” however I must admit that if you happen to reach max sig, he will have uses for stuff like thorns, Korg, electro, that sort of stuff. IF you have absolutely no other options.
    And it does require him being at max sig, which unfortunately (or unfortunately?) I already have.

    He’s kind of a mess right now but you can extract the good mechanics here and there. A few tweaks and he’s ready.

    I suspect it’ll be a while before we hear anything, whichever way it goes. Hope to be proved wrong though. Just the Regen sorting out and the Sig Ability Rage triggering Fury would do in a pinch.

    (Seasons greetings all, btw).

    I'm curious @kingbradley1297. What have you found to be the best rotation?

    If you hit his SP2, keep his combo meter at 30 or less. You will automatically get the rage debuff to convert to a fury because it will be purified when it falls under 16 combo.

    Heavy as often as you can to build up cruelty after you get out of Murdock Boy.

    If you want to be a purifying machine, keep hitting a heavy at 15-20 and stay under 16 on the combo meter.

    For long fights go to sp3 first and then run your normal cycle. The damage scales with fury/cruelty/boosts/etc, but only procs 35% of the time.

    He is a lot to manage. But he can dismantle a lot of opponents and nodes if played correctly.

    His damage is still eeeeeeeeeehhhhh

    Soooo, further testing:

    Not that ROL Wolvie is the pinnacle but as for testing:



    100% ability accuracy reduction. W/Elektra or Psylocke synergy. Wolvie couldn’t regen at all. What other applications does this have?

    Hopefully they fix him soon! Don't want to wait a few months for his buff lol

    Does anyone know an update? I didn't see any notes for changing his abilities next month.

    A big thing keeping me around is these reworks, and if they're going to be like Daredevils, I dont want the reworks.

    Man hopefully one of the 4 are good! I'm especially hyped for Yellowjacket, Kingpin, Moleman, and Terrax!

    Wow, still no acknowledgement from kabam huh.... We all know kabam sees this, just buff his dmg and increase his regen rate ffs.

    Way too late to be relevant, but my main beef is the regen nerf as a suicide main. Just can't use him.

    Some champs are terrible with suicides, but still usable. Only 1 champ self-destructs with them. Given the current meta, being afraid of a little regen is just silly.

    It might be that kingpin's buff will add a synergy for DDHK which would explain the silence from mods but it would be helpful if we could have some insight on it. I guess missing out on beta really hurt this buff. Most of the CCP members agree that he needs a little more to make him relevant in the current meta

    The Kingpin buff may help but it won’t be ideal if the usefulness is determined to such an extent by a synergy. As so many have said, and I echo, fixing Regen and a damage tweak is all that he needs. Whether the damage tweak is the Sig Ability Rage giving a Fury like the SP2 or something else.
