More Insights & Reading

I highly recommend reading these three threads for more information and context on summoning odds:

If you’ve read them a million times before, you may consider reading them again before deciding on your budget for summoning. A little time spent deciding on how much money you want to risk on summoning goes a long way to avoiding disappointment, frustration, and regret later. :slight_smile:

Little part of The Mad Hatter plus LoLo in one! Nice!

Hopefully they add text : if caster didnt copy any buffs, he deals ‘‘villain swing’’ (285%) instead + copy special.

Otherwise, he is same as normal lord loki. This 285% special added would help him fight when he is only one vs healer…

I have read quite a number of posts in various Line groups about players having inside knowledge about a proposed nerf for Lord Loki …

Does anyone know if this is true or speculation?

Asking for a friend :wink:

There was nothing about it in Beta, and I have read nerf speculations about lot of heroes, but most of them are still not nerfed.

Kind of curious what kind of nerf because it isn’t like his copy is OP when you consider that the damage is based on his stats. Unless they want to make him slow which would just kill his utility.

And it isn’t as if he is an overwhelming defensive hero.

The actual nerf being mentioned in Line accounts that I have read, related to Lord Loki only being able to copy skills of heroes that have health above 50% …. If it’s less than 50% Lord Loki dealt X% damage ….

It was posted in different Line groups …

But as @PlayForFun has said …. There was nothing in Beta …. So possibly just speculation or false news

I have seen that post in Facebook too @JGE.
Of course the fact that it was not in Beta does not rule out Staff will announce tomorrow that it will be effective from the next day.
But I am not expecting any Balance adjustment from Staff just some public notes about Beta 2 what they did in Beta 1 too.
Further adjustments might arrive on Wednesday / Thursday when Beta 3 arrives.

Better than changing mana speeds, but still an odd limitation if that’s what they want to do as a nerf.

OTOH, there could be a benefit on this when you get the odd case of Lord Loki vs healer at the end of the match where there’s no way you can win because both sides keep healing. Under this change, you get some tile damage to get under 50% and then hit. There could be other situations like that. Not ideal by any means though.

there are so many heroes that we think the OP will be useless when they’re left alone. They are only strong when they have teammates with them

Loki was my first 5* and I still use him a lot. This costume is a bit meh to me. Lowering his already low health sucks.

Can someone explain the special… is he doing the no-special damage on top of copying the opponent’s special skill damage every time?

I’m not quite sure about that part, but I can see that it got nerfed slightly from 285% to 265% :thinking:

Lord Loki costume I think, its quite underwhelming…

If enemy has Taunt, Costume Loki will achieve same results as noncostume Loki…

That’s a super weird nerf :joy:

Situationally, this is useful. If he’s the last one standing with the last healer on the wings, this is a almost 100% lose situation, unless he is very lucky with the tiles. But with this he can at least have some firepower

@PlayForFun seems like its lowered to 265%… what an odd change…

Would be very upsetting to Bring Out the costume that is nearly the same as the original and nerf the original Loki or both versions a few dass/weeks later… Especially because Lord Loki is No def Hero and not OP as so many other Heroes. He simply doesn’t need adjustments.

But than again, it’s SG - leaving OP heroes as OP as they are while nerfing old heroes to the ground that wouldn’t need adjustment trying to anger as many Players as possible is Kind of “their Thing”

Lets hope for the best
