    Do you feel the next patch with fix the ritual problem?

    They are increasing combat blink to 1000 gold which is a good start but I still dont feel it will be enough. I had a joust match that lasted almost 40 minutes today because we all had blink. Everyone was blinking around the map, Ah Puch here, Anhur there, Xing over there. It was more annoying than fun because the game was focused around trying to bait blinks and catching up to the other team.

    IMO:
    1) They need to either get rid of it all together.
    2) Make it a relic with long CD
    3) Make staggered increase in costs that go up by 500 gold per use.
    4) Or make it so you can only purchase 1 or 2 a game to make it more of a tactical item than an every time purchase.

    1000 gold will not make much difference. This is certainly one of the worse additions to season 4.
    HirezAmanda is ridiculous.

    Apparently they are nerfing it to a 40 unit radius.

    Personally, I think they need to be removed and add the various effects onto relics. Considering they were added to prevent stalemates late game it seems evident to me, given the aforementioned blink spam, they actually create more stalemates. Oddly enough the only ritual that actually did prevent stalemates was so overtly strong it was nerf hard to the point that it rarely gets picked up now.

    There will be an actual downside to Combat Blink now, but old Relics shouldn't be Consumables.

    They should just make the combat version the upgrade of normal blink so everyone wouldn't take it. Or just get rid of the rituals. I am glad they do realize there is a problem with them. Hopefully in a few more patches they will just remove them from the game.

    It's not just you. Rituals should be one use per game or removed.

    This. Just add them to consumable upgrades.

    Didn't think anything was wrong with them before. Whatever gets away from 50+ minute stalemate games outs a plus. It doesn't matter how they affect other game modes and they rarely affect conquest until way late I the game.

    Yeah, they don't really affect arena since tickets are gonna go down no matter what, don't affect assault with its 1 shop visit per life, conquest isn't till very late game or they won't have the gold to spam and even if they did it slows elixir spamming which is a lot more worth it. And honestly so what if someone can spam blink late game in conquest, rallying ritual helps ensure an end regardless. (You don't NEED that kill) I've never had a joust game where this really became a problem. Honestly conquest is probably the only mode really affected by flickering ritual, but 1 guy getting away(or even an entire team) isn't going to stop a team from breaking some structures. It lets your opponents use their own rallying rituals to try and make a comeback, but that doesn't mean the game is never gonna end.(just might not be in your favor)
