So there was a thread about how it makes no sense and it just not justified. Now I will say that I personally hated the fact that backdoor protections could be removed by pets and when 4.1 dropped and the rallying ritual showed up I think that was a bit much as well. Remember this has no cooldown. and i still think a lot of gods will be doing the back door thing because its never actually going to stop. It just going to be a bit harder. Also i think they said this protection removal does nothing for Loki so now every other god that back doors will be doing it like Loki.
Nu Wa and Bastet got some buffs to their damage which isn't bad. However I have seen people complaining that these buffs are useless. The Nu Wa i think is good. I can't really say for Bastet because I barely play her.
Now Vulcan got no changes which i think is fine(hate me later if you want). I don't think anyone really picks Vulcan and then says oh well I'll just go back door a few towers. The Bakasura however kinda annoys me that nothing has been done. Bakasura in general I think needs some work.
Now I'd would like to know what you think should be done about these gods and specifically their backdoor ability. Remember there pets can still tank structure damage and damage the the tower as well(Loki's decoy is the exception). I had the idea to let the pets take reduced damage from the structures so they would be able to tank longer. Or remove structure damage progression on pets. Or let the pets have a portion of your penetration against structures. these would not affect the titan however because i feel like the titan just dies so easily since it can take ability damage unlike towers or phoenixes which can only be killed with basic damage.
Also understand that they removed backdoor protections and not the actual act of back dooring which you can obviously do. Now its just going to be the same as doing it with LOKI who by the way is pretty damn good at it. Understand that Loki's decoy acted as a god not a pet or so I've been told.
SO thoughts anyone? Oh also I'm not quite sure what's going on with Skadi and Kaldr since i saw no changes.
(and if anyone saw this on reddit that was also me)
