A idea to make true focus viable

Basically a cool down period for evade and miss about around 3 second quaking would not work and ghost would be awkward to play while other characters can still somewhat work.

I don't play summer of pain so I really don't care ether way.

    Kitty Pride is already affected before even before being released. Lol.

    Champs with those mechanics are affected by that Node. That's how the game works. Use other Champs.

    No because they can't specifically target them without the community freaking out

    That's essentially what they're doing right now.
    We all know true focus is intended for quake and ghost.

    The only thing not specifically addressing them accomplishes is making many other champs worse and having to overtune new miss champs to work around true focus

    @Thanks_D19
    The community would flip out because they would be specifically targeting them, people would be asking for compensation due to them ranking these characters for this content

    They are already being targeted by true focus. With that node they would be hurt the exact same amount they are hurt by true focus. The only difference is that you wouldn’t screw over any champ with a miss or evade mechanic. Quake and ghost are already being targeted by true focus and everyone knows that. Being more direct and naming them specifically wouldn’t make anyone any more mad than they already are

    Not really as if duped true focus does 0 to her and phase be paused she actually counters true focus and any miss counter due to the 0 damage in phase and the whole defensive combat rate u can get out of the hits via specials or finding openings from them hitting u

    Kabam has already admitted it’s aimed at Ghost and Quake. They aren’t being subtle about it, just hitting tons of other champs in the crossfire too

    Yet another useless comment from the kabam guard dog
    Hood got buffed and they removed his fate seal? That’s how the game works, use other champs.

    See how the logic doesn’t hold up? Just because Kabam do something doesn’t make what they do automatically the right call.

    If that’s how the game works then this is a bad application of it. Change how the game works in this scenario. It’s not hard. You’re a broken record on this and no matter how many people put forward their valid points, all you have is those few sentences.
    That's exactly how the game works. Either by Champs or Nodes, Abilities are challenged. It's how the game has ALWAYS worked. Yet time after time people react to any change as if certain Champs are supposed to go unchecked for the duration of the game.

    How to make true focus viable:

    True Focus: Female Science and Tech champs beginning with either the letter Q or G cannot evade or miss

    Problem solved.

    There goes Guillotine 2099s digi cloak
    Make her non-binary. She's a robot after all.

    And when an ability is challenged or changed for the wrong reason, it’s ok to say to Kabam that’s bad. You know that’s ok right?

    Ghost and quake, sure, I don’t give a flying donut if they get checked by an ability change. That’s Kabams intention that they’ve stated. But changing the game for a fair few other champions when that’s not Kabams intention is sloppy design.
    Care to point out what Ability is changed? Pretty sure it's a Node that counters Abilities. If people haven't learned from 12.0 yet, let me point it out. A Swiss Army Knife is bad for the game.

    What sucks is most of the champs affected are the most fun to play ones with quirky mechanics. Tigra, Mister Negative, Elsa, Prof X, Stryfe, etc. Now even Kitty Pride is gonna be affected.

    I want to use these champs because of their unique playstyle and not those with basic champs who you only need to intercept or parry/heavy.

    I meant ability challenge.

    And you’re missing the point, nobody is saying don’t counter ghost and quake. You know that right? Or are you managing to miss the point
    I'm not missing the point at all. People are acting as if the sole purpose of the Node is to counter them. It's meant to counter any Champs with those Abilities. Which means not just Quake or Ghost.

    Go play button mashing fighting games.
    You mean the ones where you rely on the same moves over and over?

    That's false and you know it. Don't delude yourself old man.
    It's not false. The Node wouldn't exist as it is if that wasn't the case. It has other applications besides those two Champs.
