Well, imo Medusa have a lot in her kit (burst, steroid, dash, and CC), similar to Apollo pre-nerf. Now I guess they're focusing more on her Ability, rather than AA potential.

I am indifferent with the nerf, considering I have bought her, but never played as her anyway.

You're indifferent because you haven't played her. That nerf on her 1 is huge. It's the only source of GOOD damage she has.

This honestly isn't the direction I expected them to take wtih nerfing Medusa. I expected them to nerf her Acid Spray to make her more like Artemis or Rama, strong late game Hunters with weak clear. Instead they seem to making her more like Ullr, a very middle of the road Hunter who's reasonably strong through all phases in the game but doesn't particularly excel at any point compared to other Hunters. Animation cancelling is going to be a lot more important for Medusa players without having as much free damage on Viper Shot.

Well that is true, and I will try her. I also agree with your point, considering fighting against her, her 1 is her main source of damage. Now it seems, her 2 will be the main choice, since the splash also deals 100% damage.

Guess we'll have to see on how people will adjust to the nerf.

Fixed a visual issue with orbs disappearing after recall.
Lacerate
Reduced Damage from 120/150/180/210/240 to 80/120/160/200/240.

This is awesome. Been waiting for this since Medusa release. So many people crying overnerf when her ult still deals 700 damage + stun and a 50%/3s slow if you hit the back with 350 damage base...LOL. Yet they kept the single most overpowered thing about her...the fact that she can launch AAs in the dash, effectively giving her dash a potential ~800-900 damage unmitigated if it DB crits. At least her steroid is balanced (see Arachne who no one complained about having a (previously) weaker steroid). Say goodbye to this I-win button.


Magi’s Blessing
The passive (bubble) will no longer be consumed if you are currently immune to the crowd control effect that hits you.

And welcome the new one. Just when Hi-Rez removed the I-win button in picking Medusa they have to overbuff the ever-living shit out of the most braindead item in the game. That's not a 1-click win. You don't even have to press buttons to win with this, you can now walk out of anything every 45 seconds if you build this and WB. Instead of tactical thinking (e.g. not stacking 2 sources of total CC immunity), it's now a guaranteed survival tool against what...50 gods out of 64 (fine, there are gods which don't need hard CC to kill you, see Bastet/Kukulkan)?

TenWildAbras
04-07-2015, 09:23 AM
Due to that nerf her one skill has officially become a glorified buff. There is no point in building damage medusa anymore.

Her 1 one skill went from doing (126 +45%) - (378 + 135%) To now doing...
(90 +30%) - (270 +90%)
Mind you, that last number is for landing all three hits.
On top of that.. they nerfed her attack speed from it.. strangely. I would have rather seen it go from 50-70 or just plain 70 to test it out.

However.. they left the acid spray with it's giant cone?

I am know this won't be the last of nerfs to come... I just wish they'd stop nerfing gods in wrong areas.

Introducing the new burst Hunter... that can't really burst until you have Death Bringer but can still poke you really well!

DrewGrimey
04-07-2015, 09:45 AM
Can't believe they didn't touch the range, damage and cc of her ult. The nerf to her 1 was a no brainer, a 100% attack speed increase at level one was beyond op. Now she has to level the ability like everyone else to get the max rank benefit.

Remember when everyone complained that the Bellona nerfs were too much? Yeah, she's still the best god in the game by a long shot

Mánagarmr
04-07-2015, 10:18 AM
Well then. Goodbye Medusa. They took away the one thing you still had after the fix from PTS. Now the 1 is insubstantial except for early game (where it's too strong) and lategame it'll do pants damage...gj there, Hirez. You turned an interesting ability-based hunter to a cookie cutter, basic attack hunter. Just reduce her basic AA damage and buff her abilities. MAKE HER AN ACTUAL ABILITY GOD, like you said you would...

GJ! Who the hell does your balancing these days? O_o

Well, since he can dominate with ease, I don't think it's an arguable thing. He puts out so much damage, it's ridiculous. This isn't me complaining about Xbal, I like him, probably my favorite Hunter, but I hate playing him because he is too strong. I hate being overpowered.

She dominated the laning phase and was a menace if she got fed enough to properly roam (which wasn't hard).
You forget, I tried to get the Hel skin. Had to play Conquest 7 times in quite a few roles.

Boomerangbro
04-07-2015, 06:41 PM
Did they just give Medusa the "Nox" treatment? They gave an overall good burst god with an interesting kit, and turned her into a poke god now. The thing that they shouldve nerfed should have been her spray, which has this massive cone still. Also, speaking of nox, I have NOOOO idea why she didn't see a buff this patch. She is still the most underperforming god in leagues and her performance in the SPL was not good.

I don't understand people complaining about how the free damage on Medusa's steroid is getting nerfed, any amount is still more damage than every other attack speed steroid in the game gives you.

People aren't complaining that she was nerfed. People are complaining that she was nerfed in the wrong way. Instead of weakening her abilities further, they should bring her back to PTS levels (although reduce the 1 by about 50% for the early game, it was fine lategame). Give her back the AS reduction on the spit and make it do less damage in the cone (thus reducing her poke).

BUT in addition, also bring down her base in-hand damage by A LOT. There's just no reason for her to be hitting the hardest AND scale the best out of all the hunters when she's ability based.

What we'll see now is Medusa players building her like Rama. Tripple crit and attackspeed. She'll DESTROY people with her ludicrous damage. What have we gained from this? Yet another, boring, run of the mill in-hand hunter. Even though she was designed, and released, as an ability based hunter.

NEITH is an ability based hunter. With this nerf, Medusa becomes even less Neith and even more Rama. Hilariously enough, her 1 now does less damage (assuming 200 power and all three hits) then a single Anhur Impale. So an instant line nuke that needs to hit once...does more damage than an over-time ability that needs to hit three times? That makes sense.

Ascan7
04-08-2015, 07:15 AM
i hope they'll understand the errors that they are making. Medusa wasn't OP, didn't need such a major nerf, just some tweaks

PrinceRaven
04-08-2015, 08:04 AM
Medusa's still a late game carry Hunter with Ullr's wave clear and stronger poke than Artemis. I don't expect this nerf to make that significant of an impact apart from making Ninja Tabi more favourable than Warrior Tabi.

•Lacerate
•Reduced Damage from 120/150/180/210/240 to 80/120/160/200/240



Called it! 100% attack speed at level 1 was insane. Ymir freeze into Medusa viper shot was an instant kill on virtually everyone. I'm disappointed that they didn't keep it 100% at max range, that's kinda stupid. it should of been 20/40/60/80/100% since its not an actual steroid, its just a temp buff like ao kuangs dragons. I would of also kept the scaling at 15%.
.
.
Right now at max rank the ability will do 30+10% which is probably going to be 15-19 additional damage. So the ability is now 45-49 dmg per hit. Multiplied by 9. So it'll be around 405-441 damage before mitigation with all 3 hits. That's about a 30% nerf to the damage. To much? Maybe. Hunters are divided into different categories. You either have the hunter who has a hard CC ability like a neith or a Anhur and no steroid, or a hunter with no hard CC but has a steroid like a artemis or Rama. Medusa currently has no hard CC or real steroid in her kit. She'll have to rely on her ult. Personally I think building cool down on Medusa might be necessary. I say she went form S tier to Low A, maybe B tier after this nerf. She still has excellent boxing potential and a strong ult, but she'll need some assistance from a god with hard CC I think.

McKnightrider

All Medusa needed was you knowing that she was not invincible. Besides that she was newbie bliss. Heavy hitting in the beginning and kept getting stronger as the game goes on. I very much felt she needed a nerf.
But in retrospect I feel all gods are OP.
BUUUT Medusa was WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY to OP.

GodlySparta
04-11-2015, 12:21 AM
Medusa was already weak enough. Now she's not even usable any more? No I'm not buy Medusa :( Bellona seems fine right now. Herc is still the strongest of all warriors again. Unless Herc gets nerfed then Bellona doesn't get nerfed. She does damage like Herc but can't pull or push. Only need I would suggest is probably a longer cooldown on hammer. Maybe an option but the rest of her kit has long cd and it cost a lot of mana. Use it too often and you'll run out of mana quick. Also need to fix her shield bash going through gods then bringing her back. Make me confused on where I am.
For those who are complaining, look at Ymir's damage and tell me you don't see 300+ base damage and over 1000 damage on ult. That my friends is op and he can double that too.

I don't think you remember release Nox all that well considering how they had to rework both her passive and ult to get people to consider her viable.

A) Those numbers really aren't unusual for a damage ability and a long charge up ult.
B) Ymir's passive does not double ability damage, it doubles basic attack damage.

I can agree with the damage reduction. No problem there.

But, scaling decrease, mana increase, speed buff not even 100% at max rank.
Cmon man, how is that fair ?

Cmon man, how is that fair ?

At full build the difference in damage is only 72 per shot, before mitigations. Considering your basic attacks are dealing 333 or 832.5 if they crit (with Deathbringer), is it really that big of a deal?

It's only 10 more mana and is still the lowest mana cost Hunter steroid. Medusa as a whole is one of the least mana hungry Hunters and 10 more mana cost on her steroid isn't going to change that.

The attack speed difference at max level isn't really that big of a deal when you consider she overcapped attack speed anyway with a standard build. a lot of people used the Que build on her because of her passive and that went way over the cap during her steroid, especially if you got purple buff.

Compare how often you can shoot while using, for example, Rama's steroid.

I think this is a overnerf, maybe give her 5 shoots to fire when using her 1.

the nerfs looks like what was necessary with medusa's kit imo. they didn't nerf her late game much at all just made her early game fair. she will still be a very strong god late game. I do think more balancing should have been done with Bellona I am rather disappointed to see none.

She does have 5 shots if you know how to animation cancel.

Where is the apollo buff? He is too weak, his lifesteal, base attackspeed and crit damage. Tested same builds on every hunter, him and ullr falls off and apollo was the most popular god in smite. Now hes down to B teir

I just dont get why bellona is getting a skin before her golden and legendaries..

Probably because it was released by accident for a short time

Why no bellona nerf?

She's technically "balanced"

I guess it's because nobody can pick her up for an instawin anymore, and they don't play her, leading to HiRez thinking she's balanced.

She's not.

It's gems, I believe.

Apollo is still easily S tier, and a massive pain in the ass.

I don't see any mention about fixing that nonsense with Janus being able to ult out of the Joust map so he can back safely....

also I don't feel the nerf on Medusa was in the right place.
The latency issue with still being turned to stone if you turn around at the last second is annoying but anyways far as nerfs go I would say slight drop to her ult's base damage (max rank should be 600 instead of 700) should be enough.

Personally I don't see the point of nerfing the 1's attack speed its only for 3 shots which you need to be even more careful to land

Right I find building her like a cookie cutter typical hunter
or building her with alot of power and good cdr since she was afterall introduced as an ability-based hunter are both equally viable.

If they nerf too much on her 1 she might as well just simply build as your typical attack speed god... base damage I can understand but why screw with her scalings.

I wanted a Medusa nerf, but that was really harsh...and did very little to address the things that made her so standout. She still has a crazy hard to avoid poke and an ultimate that is very powerful in any situation and flat out broken when combined with Ymir, Athena, Kumbha or anyone else with CC. She's still going to be able to ult -> Viper Shot to kill anyone at lvl 5. Meanwhile, her ability to actually fight people (rather than cheesing them to death) has dropped. I guess I can at least be thankful that she won't be as much of a pain as post-nerf Bellona, assuming they sort out her ult stunning people who can't even see her.
.

Speaking of Bellona, she's still very, very durable for the amount of damage and utility she brings. She's not a free win anymore, but something needs to give...ideally something that won't make her too weak. Meaning, she likely has to lose one thing entirely rather than just being made weaker at all the things.

Remove Bellona's passive and make her weapons her new passive, bam, bellona isn't a tanky escape master or tanky chase machine anymore.

Either that or remove all her leaps if shes also going to be that tanky.

The Dusa nerfs were made to nerf her earlygame damage it seems, but since most of the time dusa just maxed her 2 first for the safest poke/waveclear in the game, only time will tell at how badly this damage nerf was. At least they brought her 3 in line with all other secondary damage skilshots, though this change only makes her need 1 more basic to kill someone now.

I agree with Trubble. As soon as a god gets hit with the nerf bat, even just a little tap from it, everybody backs away as if they were SWK-tier.

She's not.

Still need a nerf on the CD of her ultimate. At a base 75/70/65/60/55 CD, with just a Jotunn's, she is leaping all up in your business at an extremely low cooldown. Osiris is just crying in a corner now.

HiRez has gone this long without buffing him and he has not yet descended into the realm of extremely-underplayed, like Hades.
I honestly see Wukong in more games than I see Hades, and Hades is a very viable solo-midlaner.
