    Maybe because he just offers stuff people need in this meta? IT's not like nerfing him will make Isis good.

    Raijin in competitive is a completely different story from Raijin in casuals.
    I'm pretty much trying to reclaim my lost ELO and sticking to a few gods rn. Mostly playing Cern and maybe Daji.

    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.

    Isis is good though, she was picked multiple times and had a decent showing.

    Raijin though....96% P/B rate and almost every game he was picked in for NA/EU, he won.

    And yes part of the reason I loathe him is that he does everything Scylla does but better thus why she wasn't picked even once in this SWC (even last SWC she was picked 2-3 times iirc).

    He's not really that special. Unless he uses his escape, he has no hard CC before his ult, and he has solid competitors for clear. In any case, maybe if he gets nerfed into the ground again, then he can get another rework, and so on until he actually has an interesting kit.

    And what happens in the SWC doesn't decide the state of the game. There's more to it than that.

    Tbf Raijin pre-rework was nerfed into the ground because he was simply too better than Scylla who was underperforming at the time, so it doesn't hurt. Scylla isn't necessarily bad, but she lacks the potential damage and range that Zeus has and the versatility that Raijin provides.

    Lolwut Isis is fine
    There's no real incentive to pick her because the ones shes doe have always gets countered by the meta of the day (map or gods that are popaulr. Most Isis pickers choose her as comfort pick.
