    Assault meta change

    Not so much a change rather solidifying what we have. People already dive towers and can win in under 10min.

    I think the changes to assault will only make early game teams even stronger, and they are already the strongest ones.

    Late game assault teams will be even worse then they already are. Its hard as it is winning with a late game comp, now an early game comp has a lot of free heal to play around with as well in addition to towers hitting for less.

    If you wanna shake up assault meta, make the towers stronger, not weaker.

    Cause all of those arena and assault players who buy skins don't help the game we play get better?

    Gosh late game assult can be a bitch because it can take forever sometimes. However, I haven't had that problem in a long time because most of the time I'm always qued with bad players or I get qued with a char I don't play very well.

    Not sure why they are going to decrease the tower by 15. However, I am curious about the new vital orbs, and see how that comes into play.

    Regardless if one genre is liked or disliked, it is all based on what a player likes to play. I personally don't care if conquest matters or if Arena is the only genre you play, it's your game, and you can do w/e you want with it. I keep telling myself I should get back into joust ranked but I'm not motivated enough to deal with the stress that comes along with it.

    They are balancing game around Conquest or you havent noticed that yet?

    I noticed that the particular patch notes I'm addressing isn't about conquest, they are about assault changes. So why you are bringing conquest up in this discussion really makes no sense at all.

    Not sure why they are going to decrease the tower by 15. However, I am curious about the new vital orbs, and see how that comes into play.
    Having 2 orbs in middle surely will spice things up I like that. Also the flank path in the jungle even if its a bit obvious and long.

    But imagine an early game comp pushing down and even getting your phoenix before retreating. Now on their way home they have 6 heal orbs that also offer MS bonus to get home safely. Meaning counter play after an objective to come back in game will be much harder. The offensive team will have a huge benefit with these changes, and lets face it being offensive in assault is not about balls or mentality its 95% about your God picks.

    Do the words assault and meta even belong together?

    not really

    assault has no technical meta, its pure rng. sure some gods/items will always be good in assault due to the crowdedness of the lane

    but otherwise even if it is more played than conquest the fact still remains that all balancing in the game is made around the Conquest game mode

    Hi-Rez uses the data from that and proplayers (to some degree) to tweak things in the game

    yes they do listen to the plebs who don't play conquest much or at all but only if the problem is really glaring

    changes to assault will be slow

    if you don't like what hi-rez is doing they aren't forcing you to play that game mode or smite for that matter
    Yeah...Right...Sure...And I'm The King of England!
    If it works in your favor, don't question it.
