Cassie compensation well deserved

CsuttonCsutton Posts: 183 ★★
I’m not one to expect compensation in most cases. However, I and many others didn’t r4 Cassie until the initial post saying she was good and would be left as is.
So then I r4 her (and really enjoy her) to find out a few days later kabam has gone back on their word.
Kinda feels like a rank down opportunity is in order. I don’t even know if I’d rank her down, but I feel the community deserves that option in this case.

    with inequity she reached 86% damage reduction with the taunt up.

    If they fix that whiff bug at least i can take that trade for 50% taunt reduction.
    This champ has so much other science utility and dmg combined, for me that already broken.

    I get where you’re coming from, and Kabam definitely needs some better QC, but I don’t think compensation makes sense here.

    Her damage reduction ability says 40%, but has been operating at 90%. You ranked her when her description said 40%, and even though she functioned differently, they’re only adjusting her so to match the stated value in the description.

    I think it’s a good move by Kabam to increase the DR to 50%, which can still result in up to 86% DR. Functionally, you’ll only lose 4% DR if you’re using the right masteries. I think it’s a pretty fair fix by Kabam, which results in a better kit then her what her current one is meant to be.

    You’re not wrong. I just feel like so many ranked her up based on her performance. The performance we were told was being left as is. Her biggest use for me is the mean mystics on hazard shift with the taunt up… just not so sure how she will handle it after the update in Sep.

    I get it, we can change our masteries and get close to the DR we are used to having. Just seems like they should fix the description, not the champ (especially since they let the community know she’d be left alone.)
    That doesnt change at all. the 90% damage reduction will change. Now if you want to get that overpowered damage reduction, you need inequity.

    90% damage reduction from the base kit is super overpowered for game balance. A r5 Cassie would have the effective healthpool of 700k unboosted with that damage reduction. That damage reduction is also completely free.

    While the intent was for Cassie to be a tanky science champion, that tankiness was supposed to require an investment in the inequity mastery. You only need 1 point invested in inequity to easily get the damage reduction + you're going to have the 36% damage reduction pretty much full time while the taunt isn't active.

    TL:DR kabam wanted you to have to invest in masteries to reach those levels of damage reduction.

    Throw in the additional percentage from the Ant Man relic and she can get the extra 4%. I have her at r4 as well. It'd be nice if they can get her whiffs fixed. It was mentioned that they are aware, but I don't see it anywhere on Trello. Still a great champ though.

    Watch them fix the whiffing issue as soon as whiffs start dealing 300k damage.

    I agree with the mathematician statement. If we look at it from the perspective that everyone who pulled her got their hands on what she is meant to be, without having to invest anything (inequity or the relic). It's a much different situation than, say MM. Everyone knew the frenzy/true strike issue. Despite the RDT's given, he's still a great skill champ.

    As for rank downs with Cassie, I just don't see it. People can still achieve the 90% reduction pretty easily if you keep the power stings up. That's the key here. If we couldn't get back to the 90%, then that would be an issue. Grab your popcorn, lol. I'm sure it will be a perfectly smooth process and release in August.
