    Default GoS is superfluous

    They dont really need GoS to win, they dont even bother to use it anymore

    It is sufficient take the power up under the enemy base and push the botton.

    this is why a gos nerf alone is insufficient to address this issue. Still boggles my mind that they nerfed sabs for donig less damage and then buffed pyros to a point so far above where sabs where.

    I mean its not like its obvious or anything ... lolz 6500-7000 insta cast spell... what could be wrong with that.


    It really makes me question the developers and whether i should continue to play or not.

    Actually it is a problem because, if even at rank 5 someone with a power up can completely cut you out of a warfront oneshotting you under your base, there is no amount of skill that can help you. You can even kill him there, if you succeed, but you will find the problem again a few minutes later maybe in another point of the map.
    And this simply without considering the effect on morale, since when people around you see that someone with decent gear and probably the most hp has just been oneshotted, they will hardly put a step outside the camp. And i wasnt even alone because others were killed in the same time, as you can read in the chat.
    This is just pathetic and the fact that they keep saying that it is working as intended and the problem is only GoS it is truely disgusting.

    now if power ball had been removed from the game you wouldn't have this problem.

    Problem you're seeing isn't pyromancer, it's powerball.

    Was going to say the same thing. Any spell power class character absolutely owns with that thing. I'm surprised more than half the time nobody but me goes for it in codex right off as it doesn't take any extra time to get.

    Without the power up the damage would have been, let me guess, 3k? So at lvl 50 with rank 5 and nearly 6100 hp it seems normal to you to be hit for 3k damage?
    And without GoS too?

    that damage would have been about 4-4.3k without the buff.

    My dear i can be as bad as you want but this is not the point. If you had had the chance of learning numbers you would have know that being bad and being hit by an homing missile it is quite different.

    Clearly a good person would have found a good rock to hide under. Also, I hear there's this new thing call crowd control. :P Jk btw. See you in codex/ whitefall

    Then why cant I hit even half this damage with *same* powerball on my MM? and to be honest any rogue spec. My crits does about 1/4 of his. Balanced?

    Ok, I'll admit, that's a little ridiculous. Ranged, Instant Cast, One Shot.
