    Dark Whisperer Patch

    Dark Whisperer just looks great, well done Hi Rez.

    Custom Sieges are now a thing so my channel can do custom matches if the viewers want, that's great. Now we can see custom tournaments in Siege as well. It was too bad Fats couldn't have his tournament on day one of Siege launch.

    -------League

    The UI changes look great.

    Being able to see trend will be interesting.

    -------General

    Oh wow anti heal items and abilities now stack, I thought they stacked this whole time. Bart did too apparently.

    ------------Gods

    Bastet Nerf:

    Bastet maintains her hit and run with the pounce nerf; but now she can't jump in, burst, and linger then choose to go back. You jump in burst, then decide whether to jump back immediately or not depending on what potential CC is in range of you. Also her razor whip does a little less damage, while giving it a longer casting time. I am fine with these Nerfs, she'll still be in a good position. She is just less forgiving now on her pounce.

    Osiris Buff:
    I think he needed this, the man felt too squishy for a warrior. Glad they give his ultimate CC immunity, it was pretty wonky because of that. Also like them rewarding his ultimate with the ability to hit more than one god, since it has a small area to hit. They buffed exactly what I felt needed buffs, hurrah.

    Overall: Dark Whisperer AMC just looks amazing. The art department does a great job once again. I agree with the nerf to Bastet and the Buff to Osiris. They both needed tweaks to bring them more in line. So HiRez is doing a good job with nerfs and buffs in my opinion. Course I think they could be doing tweaks to other gods, not just the ones people are talking about the loudest.

    Going to discuss Dark Whisperer and the buff/nerfs at 2pm pst (-8gmt) then have viewer games at twitch.tv/ScarfPlays

    It's quite possible that it didn't sell as much as they wanted.

    Honestly, i don't like it.

    If the sell was the problem, remove the skin to rework it wasn't necessary. I think it's something with copyright issues, but I might be wrong.

    This is what my money's on. I checked the client just now and Night Prowler is listed as 99999 gems, which I can only guess means they don't want people buying it. Seems like a copyright issue.

    Most likely Copyright issue, there were a ton of people with this skin. It sold very well, you don't just kill off a skin for bad numbers. Copyright is most likely.
