Battlerite

This forum is specifically for discussing non-Mafia games (board, card, video, we're not picky). Playing such games should happen in the Mish Mash forum, of course.

not what im looking for, less pleading with developers, more indepth discussions of characters and match ups

resources like the battlesheet and tychocelchuu's tutorial videos are what im using at the moment for an example

As so frequently with games nowadays, reddit is the most trafficked forum and the best place for news and the SomethingAwful thread is the best place for discussion. Though I'm not sure if there's anyone at G12+ there, so honk honk.

So far Im still in the learning all the champions stage of the game but my favourites have been Bakko and Lucie. Watching the tournament yesterday really made me want to learn Pearl but everytime I try her I just feel slow and clunky and end up getting isolated.

So far all of my games have been on 2v2, is that the main game type that the devs are going to be balancing around or are all the queues nicely filled and supported?

For now I'm stickin to 2's because I like being 50% of my team instead of 33%. On announcement, devs said that 2's would be the main competitive mode things were balanced around - now they're playing it coy and not really saying anything on the subject. For now there are tournaments and stuff for both.

Pearl is the most OP champ but it's hard to start with her because, while she has a lot of zoning, a lot of it is tricky to use. Her counter isn't that good if you can't consistently land the silence shot immediately after. But you can't just drill it as a reflex, because folks will often do their own counter if they trigger yours. The bubble is strong even into melee, but you have to aim it just right to get to shove bad mans out. Dive is really good but you need to balance using it for escape with using it to empower weapon (by the way, in 2's, take Power Of the Deep literally 100% of the time).

all the queues are good, and they are balancing around both 2v2 and 3v3.

I think it's still better to take Power of the Deep in that scenario and just take Sea Bubble round 2.

I think having a silence on tap - especially against double range, when you can actually just run up and bully ranged people - is better than a second bubble, especially since you're forced to use the second bubble while the first has more than 50% duration left. I think the main skill to playing Pearl is spacing bubble, counter, silence, dive appropriately so you're always safe. I much prefer having the EXTRA option (silence after dive) to having one of the existing options just be longer.

Also, I'm at work and can't test, but do you get the secondary bubble if you EX bubble?

I just bought this w/ fan pack. Love post-patch Jade, so easy to 1v2 if they're careless.

Right now I mostly play Lucie and Thorn and I'm really struggling with Raigon in 2v2's, I'd be curious to hear your thoughts on his weaknesses you can exploit. Generally I can't take a Raigon of my level (Which is trash tbh I'm in the lower half of silver), my wins against him are generally when they get overly ambitious and dive a bit too forward alone and blow parry early and then gets beaten down in a corner two versus one. My losses against him are generally from him putting massive pressure on the more vunerable partner leveraging his mobility and strong damage output to push them back and force cooldowns when he's able to pop parry. We either end up letting his ranged / support work unimpeded (and lose) or one of us tries diving for his partner and realize that he can run down and kill faster then we can (and lose).

lucie: I highly recommend chaos if you're not using it. It's really good into any counter/reflect champ because you can aim for the wall and hit them with the AoE. generally speaking, I find in Raigon matchups he's usually the one I use my Clarity potions on. Also, the rite where you lower their outgoing damage with Toxic is really important for dealing with Raigon isolating you - his trading pattern involves him walking up like a big dumb puppy, so it's really easy to get that hit in, and that lowers the incoming damage on you a bit.

thorn: check my odeum (hito)

It's at least pretty slow to get it at full power. But the RMB rites are pretty strong, yeah.

Right now to me it seems like the Destiny battlerites are:

Always take: Power attachment (bonus dmg on RMB), System Shock (bonus silence on RMB), Dispatch (recast space)

into heavy melee/dive threat: add violent revolution (bonus dmg, knockback on space) and sizzle (root on enemies who go through e walls)
into a range zone-match: add lasting plasma (increased duration and lowered cooldown on e) and plasma infusion (bonus range and shield on LMBs through e walls)
into enemies with a lot of sustain: add violent revolution and transformer (2 bounces on ult, space at end)
