Blades Nerf is here, sort of

Looks like there will less and less new champs for Blade to demolish with his Danger Sense ability since new champs like Corvious Glaive don't have a Villain tag, instead the have the new #Thanos Army. I'm not complaining, just simply stating that facts. It seems like a good solution to the nerf Blade outcry Kabam has been facing.

    They were honest is this thread to their credit. Blade himself has not been changed.

    Blade was a nerf to old content. I personally don't want blade to run over new content. Good solution.

    So no villains anymore then? Come on Kabam even you can do better than this

  • The tag system was there waiting to be exploited - especially with Danger Sense. It was only a matter of time.

    And? He is still a monster of a champion not everyone has to be a villain just for some vampire with glasses. If you mean proxima not having a tag well it could be the same as sabretooth who is a mercenary. Also they might not have the tag because of a glitch.

    This change affects more than Blade. This would hinder Ghost Rider too as he also uses the #Villain tag.

    Stop mistagging people just because you made someone too powerful. Sabertooth and Thanos' army should all be villains. Hyperion and SIM are also villains if you followed comics at all.

    What’s wrong with Thanos Army, which they actually are. Why do they have to be Vilain, so that Blade can dominate them? It ‘s more than fine with new set of champs with brand new tags.

    Nah man the big picture is they keep doing these indirect nerfs instead of just balancing or fixing broken concepts. This game is just a mountain of bandaids, who even knows what’s underneath it all.

    A huge pile if cash obviously

    I can’t wait for the mods response to why this isn’t just another garbage bandaid fix. Please just regularly balance your game instead of being so damn stubborn that you have this big master plan and that you actually didn’t make a mistake that broke the balance of the game. DS with synergies covered way too many champs and was going to prevent any future villains from being viable. Future tags will further demonstrate the mistake.

    Bro just stop already. This IS the balance.

    You're making it very obvious to everyone that you rely solely on blade to get you through everything by how upset you're getting over something so trivial. "wahhh my blade can't steamroll the new Champs you release"

    Blade was a nerf to mystic wars, he's already extremely OP as it is in that regard, kabam is doing the RIGHT THING by NOT giving every new champ the villain tag. If blade was able to steamroll every new non hero champ that comes out the only people in the game who'd be happy would be people like you who rely solely on one champ to navigate the game.

    That's not fun. Learn to use other champs.

    That version of Hyperion isn't a villain and never was. Clearly based on Hickman's version, which was Thor's best friend in that run.

    There was also the Hyperion of Squadron Supreme who wasn't a villain. This isn't the Hyperion of the Squadron Sinister

    One man's villain is another man's hero...

    So you would rather they just went and hit Blade big time instead of having new tags? Which I mean there won’t be that many let’s be honest.

    Just want to make sure, your for Blade having a huge nerf over a character who has a tag which means blade can still be good but not amazing against?

    Anyone who didn't see this coming must have started playing after 12.0.

    This is the correct answer. This how they do things at Kabam.

    To one degree or another, this is how they do things everywhere. And the game development community is full of players who thought they would be the ones to change that, only to discover their bright ideas were not so bright when viewed in direct sunlight.
