    Why does poseidon's whirlpool say it cripples, when it doesnt???

    This is something that has baffled me ever since I started playing him regularly. I've been diamond with him for months now.

    Playing him, I noticed that his whirlpool never crippled like it said. I see people jump, dash, and teleport out of it all the time. And they aren't always cc immune when this happens. Every single time I've used it on a neith, she just back-flipped out.

    But everyone else uses it on me, it does seem to cripple. Which makes no fucking sense. And I'm not missing, its clearly a direct hit, but it never cripples when I do it.

    Also noticed that it doesn't actually pull people or anything like it used to. Its just a dot aoe that they can walk out of easily. I have to buy gem to get it to do what it did back when I first started playing.

    What gives???

    Beads maybe. All instances of his whirlpool cripple and drag players towards the center.

    It is not that it doesn't cripple. It just has quiet a long build up time until it does. People that know how to play against Poseidon get out almost as easey as KKKs 3.

    Poseidon's whirlpool is a cripple, it's got a .5 second window in the beginning animation until it activates. You can't jump or dash out of his whirlpool.

    maybe they jump before u land the skill, at the start of the animation
    how to win games:
    1. understand the meta.
    2. pick an op god.
    3. master him.
    4. spam VEL.
    the game will never be balanced.
    u got an awesome balance team there hi-rez

    Because it does cripple and is easily the most OP skill in the game

    Except that there's at least a half second build up before it happens. Anyone with decent ping and average reactions will be able to jump or dash out of there.

    I never can. My ping normally hovers around 50-70 (though it has on occasion gone up to 200-300, hell one game it was so bad i had a ping of over 1000, but everyone was lagging that game so it was a server issue, we just surrendered because the game was obviously unplayable).

    As for my reaction time, honestly probably not very good. For some reason the game just looks like it moves slower in videos than it does when I'm playing.

    I also have a problem with framerate drops, which happen regardless of my graphics settings. The biggest one is during god selection. If too many gods are rendered at once (like in assault), then my game will freeze for like 5-10 seconds. I have have problems with random framerate drops in the middle of team fights, though this normally only happens with the first game I play after I log-in.

    If you're having issues with latency/connection during gameplay, maybe it's best to not play Gods reliant on certain abilities.
