    Assault Balance 2.0

    No one wants to play when there is .10% chance of winning, based upon player skill right? I mean half the battle if Knowing? Right???

    Look, I am glad you took my "bitching" about the healers into account. But please take the rest of it as well.

    Assault CAN be random, without a single doubt. But make it fucking fair... Just fucking please....


    A random bruiser
    A Random healer
    A random adc
    A Random Support
    A random assasin.


    It doesn't EVEN have to be THAT way.... But rerolling into three bruisers... And not to mention a fucking game mode that introduces 5 Magical people (.. Like.. What kind of troll is that? ) ... .. ... .. Dot Fucking Dot.


    A random 2 adcs/ 3 assasins, Got it, check. For fucks sake...... If the people playing the game haven't suffered enough, then so be it. They'll quit. I KNOW I'm close. And I should have long ago, but there is Nothing else that interests me....

    But that shouldn't be revolve around the ever evolving mindset of gamers.

    Making a Game Mode FAIR, No matter WHAT your argument is... Just makes sense... Period and hands down.

    Stopping me from talking in global or preventing me from sending whispers does not change this fact. It never will.

    Games are meant to be fun and competitive, Not fun and one sided out of RNG. But do what you will.

    I second this quote. If you dont like the randomness of assault then dont play it, but its supposed to be random, thats what makes it fun.

    Assault will never be balanced because it cannot be balanced. For Conq, there is no excuse; but Assault is broken by nature.

    I'd be happy is my reroll button actually worked again. And everyone can't have that low of a win rate in a game some people have to win it a lot to create someone who only wins 10%. Before the broken release from 2 patches ago I was hovering around 70% win rate in assault.

    Make the game fair you say?
    Are you sure that what you are suggesting even is? You omitted non healer mages from your suggested comp.
    What if you get the following matchup:

    Odin
    Hel
    Medusa
    Ares
    Da Ji

    Vs.

    Sun Wu Kong
    Terra
    Chernobog
    Kuzenbo
    Loki

    Not very fair...and no one can play Ah Puch...which is pretty awesome, now that I think about it. So let's go with that plan.


    You want to make it more fair? Here is an easy way to do so - let re-rolls go to the side and anyone can pick up the side. Someone re-rolled the healer? No problem, pick it back up. You have three assassins? Easily solved by making a rule that any re-roll will come from a class that is not in the party first - if you don't have a guardian, for example, that will come up first. Until all classes are filled by gods on the board and on the sideboard, but the initial drop is completely random (barring the 1 healer per team if it is a match with healers rule). You can choose to NOT run with a guardian by simply dropping in favor of the extra choices that would be on the side from re-rolls so it is quite variable.

    I think that is a much better system. Still random, but you can influence it quite a bit if you try.

    Assault is supposed to be RNG, don't play it if you don't like RNG.
