    Ganesha: Unplayed upon release?

    As the title says. I want to know what you guys think, does Ganesha's passive seem like something that would quickly prevent a majority of players from picking him? With how kill-focused most players are, I believe so. He'd be among the likes of Zhong Qui, Nu Wa, Isis, and Vulcan for picking in my opinion. (Guardian side: Terra, Sylvanus, Khepri, and Sobek, I never see any of them) just due to it being impossible for him to score kills.

    There's a simple change needed to his passive.

    If he deals the majority of the god damage, he gets the kill. If not, the kill goes to the one who did.

    That needs to be the system for all gods TBH.. Or at least Kali.

    Absolutely not, you want your ADC partner to be getting the kills in the first place, something like this is amazing. The passive fits perfectly for a supportive character, which is exactly what he is designed for.

    Except that won't really happen most of the time because he only has decent base numbers, not enough to do most of the damage for a kill.

    So if a target would barely get away but another guy finishes them off, the kill doesn't go to whoever secured it?

    I disagree, purely from the basis that this is how most support players view things from the offset. Had you worded your question "Will Ganesha incline more players to support" then sure I'd agree.

    I find it odd that you also don't see three of the best guardians for support role around, you must have incredible luck on your side. And tbh that you rarely see Zhong or Vulcan or NuWa and Isis is another headscratcher for me. Since his buff Zhong been quite popular, Vulcan always good and in this early clear time I see Isis far too often

    The Guardian role is what prevent a majority of people playing him.

    You said it yourself, people are kill-focused. That's why barely anyone actually goes support. If they do, they often pick a Warrior and build them for damage...

    It's also why it's so hard for me to get the motivation to play the game at the moment... Having to play support EVERY game (After insta-selecting a god I'd like to play and waiting around for other people to select gods to form a team) when it's your least favourite role (Even Freywin is marginally more enjoyable than playing support for me) is so depressing.
    Preferred Gods:
    Amaterasu, Aphrodite, Ares, Awilix, BAEllona, Hel, Jing Wei, Nemesis, Nox, Serqet, Skadi, Sol and The Morrigan.

    We need more kawaii skins!
