Hood Changes - Discussion [Merged Threads]

    I feel like they took one of the easiest champions in the game to improve and ruined it. Just increase his damage is all that was needed. No new mechanics, bullets or any of that stuff. Just slightly more damage was all that was needed.

    His invisibility is mostly useless imo, could've take it away, and I bet people would've been fine. Or rework it to be ghost like, holding block sucks. Instead they take away the only good thing he had

    Guys, they won’t change hood back lol
    Daredevil Hell’s Kitchen, immortal hulk, Yellowjacket... Everyone cried to kabam saying don’t let these go live, make the change before release lol months later and guess what, no changes and these champions still aren’t used by most of the community (besides immortal hulk, fun rank up but mainly useless IMO)

    But iHulk is the second best science...

    Why noone talks about his bullets mechanic? If you use him against an opponent which doesn't proc any buffs (for example Deadpool in which you will use Hood to nullify his regeneration buff), you will be able to place upto 28 staggers (without using your sp2). Let's say that this is 14 combos (M-L-L-L-M). That's about 70 hits (14 combos * 5 hit each combo). What that means? If there is a 400K Deadpool you will probably lose all your staggers before you push him to 20% health. And if you can still somehow nullify his regeneration buff (you were boosted for example), in the next fight you won't be able to use Hood as a reliable nullifier cause he won't have any persistant charges

    The Hood doesnt need bullets to place a stagger on the opponents, he places stagger on critical hits even with 0 bullets. The bullets only places hex chargers from medium and special attack 2.

    Damn, we need to @Kabam and tell them they forgot to change his name too.

    I have a suggestion for his update.
    "The Hood's attack has now been increased by 50%."
    Done. 👍 Who's next?

    Increasing base attack may not be the best solution, but flat increase in sps damage would be enough. Maybe shock stacks. I mean storm with apoc can stack those, why not allow hood stack debuffs up to 10-20-whatever is 'balanced'? And his invisibility is even more unreliable, than it used to be.
    Idk, maybe all these nerf changes are fabricated by kabam so we all were happy when we get a real one?

    Pretty much this outside of being able to parry while invisible and change projectile miss to 100%. That’s about all he needed.
