    The RIP Skadi Thread

    Skadi
    “Skadi surprised many players by quickly rising to the top of casual and competitive play, quickly shutting out other Hunters. After taking large amounts of competitive feedback, we are changing Winter’s Grasp before the upcoming LAN. Kaldr will no longer be immune to damage while this Ability is active, giving enemy teams the ability to peel Kaldr if they choose to focus him down.“

    Winter’s Grasp

    Kaldr is no longer immune to Damage in this Ability, however, he will still fully heal on activation.

    Say your prayers here for you shalt never see Skadi in the pro scene again.


    Time to main Izanami now.

    We had a good run.

    There is no cure for sheep only enlightenment.

    As a shepherd dog the only thing you can do is herd the sheep and hope they go to the shepherd.

    Way to listen to your dumbass playerbase, Hi-Rez. Hope Skadi gets rekt hard in the pro scene so they change their mind about this.

    I think they could have decreased the radius of Skadi's permafrost instead, because it's a giant easy-to-hit CC that's a bit too impactful. And/or reduce the damage of Kaldr if she is still too strong.

    Now to wait to see how it actually turns out.

    So basically her ult is now 80% useless. You're only going to use it to catch someone out so you can just land your already OP damage from 3 and 1, big deal. No more retarded backdooring or bullshit tactics where Kaldr is unkillable.

    All that matters is Kaldr landing his 1.5x dash which deals 160% of your basic attack damage. With a common build averaging 300 basic damage and the fact that his dash deals 150% of it, this means Kaldr's dash deals a whopping 720 damage. Combine Piercing Cold and Permafrost combo dealing 380 + 140%, Permafrost DoT bound to get 4 ticks in, 480 + 240%. Meaning you're potentially dealing a total of 1200 + 240% without considering mitigations.

    Not so dead now that you look at the numbers, huh.

    I'm maining Hel in Conquest exclusively because I want to live a hard life.

    Don't listen to me unless on days when I drink coffee. I'm a retard when my brain isn't chugging.

    The god herself isn't unviable now because she's still a hunter who does hunter things. Her ult is just shitty now. Oh, wohoo, it's a root. Wow. So ult-worthy.

    It was 60% pathetic to begin with, save for the root and Kaldr being totally immortal when you could let him get down to 1hp then pop the ult. It was justified because if we want Skadi to have Sprint, then her damage had to be chipped SOMEWHERE. Her 1 and 3 nerfed would destroy her outright, so the ult was the only option.

    Nerfing her 1 would not destroy her in any capacity. Shave 40 damage off, and she'll still be fine.
