    Nike's Barrier Formation is the most useless protection ever.

    Change my mind.

    Nah but honestly, someone who's a Nike main never actually had any problems with her last second ability (even though you relied on it a lot) but now they made it even worse where she poops out this barrier that doesn't do shit, and does super small dmg, what is it actually used for other than a shield? Absolutely nothing, good job Hirez, as usual you guys don't know what Nike needs.

    To improve the second ability, give her more of a push rather than a tickle, give people a shield whenever an ally is in the range of the barrier.
    I can't honestly believe that hirez made Nike even far more useless.

    It's definitely not worse than her old 2 simply by virtue of her other abilities all getting the "bonus effects" without having it use it first anymore. I have seen a lot more Nike players lately, but whether that's due to just trying out the changes or her becoming better via virtue of her other abilities not being garbage anymore I'm not sure. I'm not really sure how I feel about her new 2; that fact that it only blocks ranged basics makes it seem like it's really only useful against hunters or AA mages. While it's true you can still use it against other classes to push them back and deal a bit of damage, it feels very underwhelming in that case. My limited experience with it has been that it's amazing and borderline OP if you're fighting a AA hunter, and absolute garbage if fighting anything else. Unfortunately since only 1/5 classes are hunters it ends up being useless most of the time, especially in the laning phase when you're likely up against a melee god.
    I'm a NA PC player looking for a team for conquest or ranked joust. My player level is 117; I have 20 gods rank V or higher and 6 diamonds (Anubis, Scylla, Sol, Nemesis, Nu Wa, & Izanami). CST timezone; message me if interested. I have 1.5K+ hours put into the game; IGN is MysticMidnight.

    Only sad thing is that her passive is mostly nonexistent now and she lost her HP5 passive. But you can stack Pridwen, Urchin, and Bulwark of Hope on her for disgustingly large shield.
    Actually back to Smite but my love for the forums isn't really the same anymore. May most likely not post god concepts again.

    Since forums are dying, feel free to join the official smite forum discord where most retired members chill.

    That's just what I was saying, it doesn't do anything, it slaps people away that come too close, and when actually using it, it just tickle dmg's the enemy god, it's not even a good clear lane ability.

    A warrior that can actually zone off some dmg from the backline, heresy.

    In the right situation you can pin people against a wall.

    I am wondering if it is bugged though. Tried first Normal PvP as a Nike, couple of times it seemed like an enemy just walked right through the center of her 2. Not useful against jumpers obviously.

    Her Passive is weaker but her damage from her 1 is better and you can hit the 3 more often.
