    I'm pretty much playing whoever I feel confident in these days.

    If you ask for balance changes on a god without a reason that can be properly justified, then this is the place to train for persuasion.

    Okay. Explain this then.

    I personally can do well with both Neith and Hachiman but I find Neith easier because you don't need to aim with her 1. When you have a weave, that's it, easy aiming. Plus her 4 is global. You can kill people in a safe spot while Hachiman's 4, you have to go near the enemy and potentially have the enemy's allies back them up.


    Hmm.. I didn't notice that. Perhaps because I don't look at their genders. I look at their individual performances.



    And lol. There's nothing hard about Bellona or Scylla. Chaac is only easy early game but he falls off very hard late game whereas Bellona, you can easily do well without thinking all game.

    I don't care who started it, continuing doesn't make it justified.

    Apollo is balanced, but hunter items could use a nerf.

    personally, i would rather pick an Artemis and AMC who i dont play much over Apollo.

    compared to any other hunter i feel he is lacking, usually when i face other hunters the least troubling for me is Apollo.

    Artemis has that team stun ult which can make a huge impact on team fights especially late game.

    AMC has a slow and has a buff from his hives, not to mention his ult damage and can be spam-able when you pick it.

    now lets take a look at Apollo:

    his passive is an attack speed buff that is good but unfortunately you cant control it, meaning in certain situations when you are 1v1 another hunter you will probably kill the other hunter or be killed before the passive can work, since you only need to land 3 or 4 to get a kill.

    his 1 is just damage, nothing more nothing less.

    his 2 is a mez with protections, good for defensive situation but not that great in an offensive ones since you need to be almost in a mele range to apply it.

    his 3 is a dash with a knock up with damage and speed buff, this is probably his best ability.

    his ult is basically global travel with huge cooldown, i would say its good but maybe reduce the cooldown to 100 seconds.

    now for me i think that his first 2 abilities and passive are lacking or could use a change.

    maybe remove the speed buff from his 3 and make his mez a 1 second stun? or make his 1 have a slow?

    also maybe make his passive give more attack speed the more he hits a target? like for every successful hit he gains 10% attack speed and stacks to 5 times?


    i cant say how he is in conquest since i dont play that cancer. but in other modes i feel that he is lacking.

    I can't really tell if Apollo and Chiron are underwhelming in this meta or if they're the very definition of balanced and everyone else is just overwhelming.

    i dont think artio is hard by any means. but she does take a bit more than aimbotjin.

    i'd say both art and amc is subpar to apollo by a good part. especially artemis.

    You may think all gods have huge amounts of courage, but only xbalanque has the balls to use them as weapons.

    Yeah, well, my dad can beat up your dad.

    On Apollo, a god that can buff himself as well as disrupt and with two good escapes as well as being a hunter is, ostensibly speaking, not weak. Rather some hunters are just much more braindead with how safe their damage is.

    He is solid indeed, but no point playing him when brain dead Izanami and Hachiman exists

    Technically there is no such things as hunter items, as every physical god can buy they. Strangely enough hunters are the only class that is restricted from items in their type of damage category. So we can't really nerf a lot of items except maybe physical stacking items to nerf hunters as we would indirectly nerf some assassins.
