You see, the problem is if no one is around to point out why X does not need to nerf GPG is going to think X needs a nerf because everyone and their mother is whining about it. And everyone knows when GPG balances something whether its Demigod or SupCom, its usually a radical change. I like this game too much to let every noobish whipper snapper create a false sense that this game has serious balance issues. Demigod's balance out of the box was a rarity and probably complete stroke of luck. No one needs nerfing, only some boosting.
If GPG just reads the forums and implements player suggest buffs or nerfs, the game is done for anyway. They should be evaluating actual gameplay and, while not basing it solely off of them, using performance statistics as well. They're going to tweak balance, add new items, DGs, and maps no matter how much you decry change. Balancing has to be done, unless everything inserted in a 100% polished form and there isn't even ripple on the oh so serene surface of DG's balance... and if the stuff added is that perfect, if the game was perfect at release, and if it's still perfect after several patches which have affected balance, then maybe your hypothesis about it all being dumb luck should be tossed out the window and you shouldn't fear GPG screwing up the game to appease forum-goers.
Your mantra has been "everything's fine," but you've provided no helpful feedback in the last few threads we've gone back and forth over. If someone says Erebus is too strong you should offer a more helpful explanation than "not in team games!" I realize you can't write out a four page strategy guide every time someone cries nerf, but at least giving some basic pointers or explanation about why exactly problem A or B or C isn't a problem at all would be much more productive.
TO START. His base move speed definitly needs knocking down to 6.0
That way you can at least attempt to run away from his minions.
(At the moment, as rook, even if you were to take a +15% move speed item, you would still be at 6.2 and unable to escape him or his minions without a teleport - which he will probably stun, and if you fake cast, you'll be dead before you can cast it again).
Stacking armor seems to not work vs minion bite erebus.
Stacking hp ^
Stacking hp regen ^
Stacking life steal ^
Stacking damage ^
I seriously cannot think of a counter to this build. It can outlast all other demigods in the game - then chase them down.
Can anyone give me a viable counter to it?
Especially as a rook, but as any demigod at all would be a start.
Here's your response:
That's because you are thinking the wrong way. This is not a 1v1 game. This is a team game.
He took time to show that he's been experimenting and working to defeat this, and your response is a truly unhelpful one-liner. Do you really think that a rank 250 player who's played hundreds of games doesn't realize this is a team game? I don't know if you're doing it intentionally or not, but you really are just trolling right now.
