I’ll start off with saying that this is not a topic for discussing nerfing in general. I have a strong opinion on that matter and especially on the nerfing of stacking effects, but that should be discussed somewhere else
What I would like to propose however, is that players get one of those flask packs after their heroes get nerfed. This is partially for compensation (some heroes are rendered less effective and you have pumped time and resources into them), partially to enable you to figure out new strategies.
As an example on this last update:
- titan flasks: would come in very handy to figure out a new best tactic which doesn’t involve any kind of stacking of effects. With hits regenerating every 4 hours and boards having a lot of variety, it takes a lot of hits to figure out which team works better.
- raid flasks: with the buff/nerf of some effects I think people will have to change their strategy on this too. (I’m personally less involved with this and care less, but I think some people probably care more and would like some kind of compensation/ability to figure it out without waiting for an hour for every opportunity)
- Map flasks: less essential in my opinion, but could be given as some kind of compensation I guess.
Hope to hear what other people think about this. I realize that a lot of people will call for their money back/gems in compensations, but i doubt that will happen. This is my attempt to find a reasonable middle way which has purpose for everyone to get used to the new mechanics we all have to play with.
